    All supermarkets who jumped on the delivery bandwagon with overpriced vehicles and badly run delivery departments are going to pay. Morrisons, Tesco and all the rest. Home delivery was ramped up without a thought to the cost. I can present actual figures. If a delivery basket was 40 pounds then the % cost per delivery is almost 38% of the cost of the basket

    This is definitely a long term hold for me. Despite the competition in the UK grocery market, I feel Tesco will always be able to compete and retain their no.1 position.

    tesco will be able to hold number one of course, but shareholders want profits, not rankings

    Cost of delivery with average delivery value of 60 pounds is approximately 15 pounds. There is no ways that is sustainable. Tesco need more accountants running home delivery and less social distancing experts who specialize in driver mask wearing

    I think Tesco has shafted me and every other innocent shareholder, my Holding of 5,500 was worth around �17k (�3.11) based on pre disclosure of a Consolidation , they have now left me 4342 Shares worth today 08/03/21 219p �9509 + Special Div Paid 26/02/2021 �2801 = �12,300So from �17k I have �12k#$%$ what happened to the �5k difference !?! Someone please tell me I am missing something here, because this is not looking good from where I am sittingMr Spence Eng

    Do not worry they are reorganizing and they will put new symbol for the stock. They will pay dividend to all holders and most likely shares will go UP. The announced stock split on the Feb. 15. It will take couple of days to reassign shares to new symbol. Keep the shares cannot go down more.

    I’ve just had this message from my broker:

    After selling its Asian business, Tesco wants to return some of the proceeds of the sale to shareholders. This will be 50.93p for each share held at the end of 12 February 2021. 
     
    When a company pays a dividend, it’s normal for the share price to drop by the same amount. But Tesco wants to keep the share price roughly the same before and after it pays the special dividend.
     
    To do this the company will reduce the number of shares every shareholder owns. Shareholders will get 15 new shares for every 19 shares held. You may also get a small cash payment in early March to cover any difference from rounding.
     
    This won’t make a difference to the overall value of your holding. The total value of your new Tesco shares plus the money you get should be similar to the value of your current holding. But your account value will appear lower until you get the special dividend on 26 February.

    I am new to stocks and this is the first time im encountering something like this - is the Special Dividend alongside the usual dividend that we were expected to receive? also I haven't got this special dividend yet, anyone else?

    So you can use the dividend to buy shares at the same price and you are back to square one????

    Tesco has played a blinder.
    It look so good saying they are gonna pay all this money back to share holders because of the Asian sale.
    Well I don’t thing so?
    If we are lucky we we get back what we started with pre ex divi. We should be getting the Asian sale money plus a recognised dividend. We are basically getting back our money and no dividends for a troubled and reduced share holdings.
    I thing we should all lobby or not vote the ceo in on the next AGM. Or Report them to the FSA Or FSC or something. It just doesn’t seem fair to treat loyal share holders this way. Any way I’ve had my moan so. Thanks for reading

    Don't worry Tesco is being overlooked at the moment.
    With less shares in circulation the price should be around 280. People should wake up to this soon.

    Basically inflated the share price so we'd get less than 15 per 19.
    Lesson learnt, first time this has happened to me.

    Dear All, how did you get on with your Tesco shares? Did the overall value of your shares reduce or stay the same after the share consolidation? Did you receive your dividend?

    I'm a tsco employee and have option to buy at around 190 and 220 before consolidation price, anyone know if the option price will be adjusted? or be screwed by tsco?

    Hopefully this will make Tesco's a leaner company,and the share price will rebuild from now on.
