This company is heading for a big surprise as they cut back on staffing and reduce the range on goods on sale, complaints about both at our local store are growing louder by the day!

hTTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2019/04/26/why-im-avoiding-ftse-100-dividend-stocks-sainsbury-and-morrisons-like-the-plague/ "The Morrisons dividend isn’t anything to get excited about either. Having been slashed in 2017 to 5p per share, from 13.65p the previous year, it’s starting to creep back up again. But forecast yields are still only at 3% this year and 3.3% next." Whatever your view on the company's prospects you would think the special dividends might at least be worthy of a mention in a properly researched article. Although the share price has been completely static over the last decade there has been a full pound of dividends including specials in that period.

Buy WH Smith stores could be a big mistake like when Morrison bought up ex-blockbuster stores as many were the wrong side in the wrong places.

I still think a buyout of McColl’s would be a good first step for MW. Then to look at maybe buying up some of the WHSmith stores it offloads over the next 6 months or taking over WHS?

What I've been posting for a while is for Asda to sell 50% of it's business to Sainsbury's and 50% to Morrisons in return for a 1/3rd share in each company. This would have the effect of increasing both supermarkets market share by around 7.7% which I think would get the approval of the CMA.

share price fall seems overdone. Perhaps Asda or Sbry should look at Morrison for a possible merger? Shares are cheap.....

At the moment, the CMA are saying that Sainbury's will have to sell any stores to just one single supermarket group. Tesco would not be allowed which only really leaves Morrisons. Buying 100 to 120 Sainsburys/Asda stores will increase Morrisons market share by as much as 1.5%.

Agree totally MW need to start buying up the likes of McColl's and look to pick up 8-10, if not more of the stores that Sainsbury's is selling as it combines with Asda. These stores should be in ideal places for Morrison's to grow and expand. It can only boost the share price to the realms of 235-250 within months?

Buy out McColl's would immediately give it 4% of the convenience market. Morrison's could easily buy out McColl's for no more then £200m and would increase their grocery market share by a little over 0.5%.

This company needs a merger of some sort, with its market share it should be thinking where does it sit in the future, still seem unable to monetise their vertically integrated system, should place far more emphasis on that message to customers!

I have been posting that after divesting 150 stores and 5 years Sainsburys/Asda will have a market share of around 28.5%. However after seeing how fast Aldi and Lidl are still growing and especially how Aldi are now starting to open their own conveneince stores, I'm changing my thoughts to after 5 years the combined Saisnburys/Asda will have around the same market share as Tesco's will have at that time, while Aldi will have a market share of aroung the same or slightly higher then Morrsion's.

Aldi’s sales climbed by 10.6% in the period when the retailer again notched up a record market share of 8%. McKevitt expected further growth. He said: “London holds potential for Aldi, as both its fastest-growing region and where its market share is currently lowest, going some way to explain the recently announced trial of the smaller Aldi Local format in the capital.” With Aldi starting to move into convenience store format gives another good reason for Morrisons to buy McColl's as this would give them an immediate 1,250 conveneience stores.

Aldi is catching up with Morrison very quickly, at the current rate will most probably over take Morrison in as little as two years. Seems to me another good reason if all goes well with supplying McColl's to buy them out maybe as early as some time next year. .................Kantar..............Nielsen ..........End March..End January...End January Tesco.......27.4%.......27.2%..........26.8% Asda........15.4%.......15.5%..........13.8% Sainsbury...15.3%.......15.7%..........14.8% Morrison....10.3%.......10.5%...........9.8% Aldi.........8.0%........7.6%...........8.9% Coop.........6.1%........5.9%...........4.7% Lidl.........5.6%........5.2%...........5.9% Waitrose.....5.0%........5.2%...........4.3% M&S..........---.........---............3.5% Iceland......2.1%........2.2%...........2.4% Kantar do not give a market share for M&S and seems to not take them into account. when calculating market share of the various supermarkets. The biggest gain in market share is Aldi with Tesco not far behind while Sainsbury's is dropping like a stone therefore I can no longer see any good reason why the CMA will not let their merger with ASDs go ahead with and agreed 150 store divestment.

Doesn't explain why Nielsen include M&S in their figures while Kantar doesn't. These figures only include the sale of food stuffs therefore will not include the like of Argos etc. If Nielsen are more correct then Kantar then Sainburys/Asda combined market share will only be 28.6%.

Just looking at the market shares of the various supermakets given by both Kantar and Nielsen...and there is quite a difference: ..........Kantar...Nielsen Tesco......27.2%....26.8% Sainsbury..15.7%....14.8% Asda.......15.5%....13.8% Morrison...10.5%.....9.8% Aldi........7.6%.....8.9% Coop........5.9%.....4.7% Lidl........5.2%.....5.9% Waitrose....5.2%.....4.3% M&S.........---......3.5% Iceland.....2.2%.....2.4% Kantar do not give a market share for M&S and seems to not take them into account when calculating market share of the various supermarkets. Kantar given Aldi/Lidl 12.8% market share while Nielsen give them 14.8%

Sainsbury's said selling 125 and 150 supermarkets, plus a number of convenience stores and 32 petrol stations, giving the opportunity for new entrants to come in or allow smaller rivals to expand rapidly is a "proportionate and effective" response to the concerns, while claiming the CMA had overstated the level of divestments needed. The stores should be sold to a single rival or new entrant, Sainsbury’s said. The grocers have already received expressions of interest from potential buyers, according to the document. Sainsbury's said the views expressed by the watchdog "indicate a preference for the most stringent and interventionist approach" on every measure and that this was far more severe than in previous cases. The supermarkets submitted their own revised figures suggesting there were many fewer areas of concern and offering their own proposal about the number of sites that would need to be sold to rivals. Personal note - Divesting 150 supermarkets plus a number of convenience stores would reduce Sainsburys/Asda combined market share to around 30%. Selling these supermarkets to Morrison would increase their market share to around 11.5%. If then Morrison's took over McColl's would immediately give Morrison's around 1,250 convenience stores. Looking forward 5 years. If they keep growing as they are Aldi/Lidl will have around 18% market share, while Sainsbury's/Asda will have fallen to around 28.5% or may be a little less. Important to bare in mind, a few years ago Tesco had a market share approaching 33%, falling back to around 27.5% where it is today.

It's a fair point, particularly given some notable successes for the short sellers over the last 12 months, where much of the UK retail sector has provided fertile hunting ground. If you want to make a bearish case it's valuation that I might like at. 16x approx on foward esrnings is not exactly cheap given the sector backdrop.

About as good as everyone else I suspect, if we all had a crystal ball we would not be here, sure Tate was an early sell, all twelve months ago, I don’t make any pure judgements, just an argument for and against in most cases. Tomorrow is history, and I do not dwell too much except for the short time after, we all have to make an opinion if we are going to invest, and the case here as stated above, how it plays out is anyone’s guess, that why some would deem it all a gamble if you remove the dividend!

bookbroker, with respect your record on calling share prices is abysmal. Remember you telling me on the CNA board 2 years ago that Centrica would be about debt free by now. I said to you it was a value trap. You also lost faith in Tate just at the wrong time, nicely over £7 now and paying a fat dividend.
