Hello Share Chewers. Many years ago now Marks & Spencer (MKS) was an alluring share. Decent dividends and a steadily rising price graph. I sold my holding when the shares attained about 340p. Good job I did because nowadays the company’s shares have struggled for years and are currently at only 141p. But a few happy recent trips to M&S move me to consider buying back in.
I am sure there are some people who are still very hopeful about their Marks & Spencer (MKS) shares but I dumped mine so long ago that I guess even a pair of its expensive boxers would have worn out by now. Forget though the 60% fall in the company’s share price over the last five years or the 40% fall year-to-date, or even the decision of the CEO to exit stage left after six years in charge, is there any interest in the shares over the next year or not?
Hello, Share Pickers. This old punter is a big believer in the Santa Rally, that fabled big share boost up to Christmas. Nearly always stock values creep up during November and December. Though you have to be ready with the sell button in January. There was no rally last year due to covid, but can we expect a yule surge this time? You bet we can.
It is far from being a quiet Friday in August. And whilst there is plenty of scope to chat about the commodity sector given the excitements in China, once again I find myself wanting to comment on the UK grocery and related sector.
