    M&S teetering on the brink of FTSE relegation

    Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) is expected to report a second straight fall in annual profit next week, and with the retailer's shares down nearly a quarter over the last year it is in danger of soon being booted out of the FTSE 100 index. The 134-year-old M&S has been a member of the blue-chip index (.FTSE) since its inception in 1984. M&S faces unrelenting competition both in clothing and food on the high street and online, while efforts to revitalise its business are being hampered by an ongoing squeeze on consumers' spending power.

    Sainsbury's move for Asda sees some hedge funds caught out

    A popular hedge fund bet on a fall in Sainsbury's (SBRY.L) shares came unstuck on Monday after the supermarket group announced plans to merge with Walmart-owned (WMT.L) rival Asda. The deal, which would see the combined group leapfrog Tesco (TSCO.L) to become Britain's biggest food retailer, sent shares in Sainsbury's up 17 percent by 1200 GMT and on course for their biggest one-day gain since 1983, Thomson Reuters data showed. Before the news broke over the weekend, data from industry tracker FIS' Astec Analytics showed more than 160 million Sainsbury's shares were out on loan, near the top of a 52-week range, as part of a "short" trade betting the price will fall.
