    I hear you about the clothing issues. Never actually shopped in the store so really can’t speak to the quality. From an outsider looking in the three main items that drew me to MAKSY are (1) the food business and the partnership with ocado which looks outstanding given what has transpired the past 12 months (2) the massive real estate owned by the company which the company appears to want to rationalize and (3) the massively overfunded pension which appears to be substantially overfunded by an amount way bigger than the company shows on its balance sheet. It’s quite possibly that the pension is overfunded by anywhere from $3-6 billion by my guesstimate. I’m not an actuary but the company’s pension assets compared to its benefit payments seem to suggest there is enormous overfunding but certainly do your own research.

    If this lot had to drop their prices in clothing by £5 per item the profits would increase. Then when they get their clothing ideas right and the customers have returned they would be able to gradually increase price accordingly. Pathetic management and inferior design come quality runs the day at M&S

    I just bought M&S this morning since I've been intending to do it for a while and it randomly goes up 15%???

    Another step in consolidating their online efforts by buying Jaeger. A lot of exciting initiatives under its MS2 division, established to accelerate their e-commerce activities. This overlooked share has been creeping up slowly in the last 6 months. I do hold and intend to long term.

    anything less than £1 is good. This is a long term investment. It will take at least 2 years to recover. I'm hoping that the link with ocado will help in that journey to recovery

    Do they own any real estate?

    This stock looks as cheap as anything out there. Why is there no love for the stock after the Ocado transaction?!? M&S did the stock offering when the stock price was double where it is now and did the JV valuation when Ocado was worth half of what it is worth today. The transaction wouldn’t even be possible today so good job by management getting this deal done!

    In a strange way I think the turmoil of Brexit with regards to importing goods into England could be a huge benefit to Marks and Spencer which prides itself on supporting the local economies by sourcing things locally

    MAKSY hopefully builds on its performance of late 2020 as it builds out the Venture with ocado and MAKSY’s overfunded pension should be even more overfunded (overfunded by billions currently). It will be interesting to see the company transition its outstanding real estate in the major cities into residential apartments. Seems very beneficial to shareholders on all fronts

    M&S are pre planning to get through this tough period good news. M&S are financially stronger today good news. M&S have survived since 1925 good news so price will rise....even as no one really expects another hit from easing lockdowns either hmmm

    Marls and spencer could be well positioned coming out of this lockdown and going into Xmas. Maybe marks will have a move like these US retailers which have gone parabolic

    Watch out. This may well be on the back of the recent food price reduction game and it’s too early to tell the outcome.
