Poleaxe - like the logic. Have not yet seen any announcement or concrete proof of promotion but statistically it looks inevitable.

Volume at close is due to promotion to FTSE 250 taking effect. FTSE250/350 funds were buying, Small Cap funds selling.

The significant 4:35 today produced a buy/buys of nearly 12 million shares. We still think that someone is building up a stake. Anybody got similar thoughts/ideas?

Significance of 4:35pm
Thu 18:31
About 4:35pm each afternoon there is a significant amount of shares being traded. At first there were an awful lot of buys, now there are an awful lot of sales. Does anyone know why. We thought that it was activity from abroad?

Marston's tipple for father's day yesterday?

I had a nice Hobgoblin Gold, went down rather nicely too it did.

And Stocked up on a few more this morning too, £1 a pop in Morrison's so got a few more in my fridge chilling nicely for the next weekend.

It's a hard life if you don't weaken.

4x 9000 shares showing today as buys too. Seems like a very precise amount. Not sure if that means anything. Maybe someone just likes the company.

If you notice there seems to be a pattern emerging. At about 4:25 in the afternoon big buys seem to come in. Another 300k yesterday adding to two recent ones of over 600k. Could it be an overseas buyer gathering a stake in the company? We have held these shares for a number of years so will continue to do so as a bid may be around the corner?

Dinoken agree it’s hard to be sure re 250. This site lists it but Marston’s themselves on their investors page. All the same doing nicely right now.

MARS not in 250 ? That's not what I was told down pub. I was told it was my round because MARS is number 326 in the hit parade and will join 250 on Monday 24/6 with consequent upward jolt of sp.
Before forking out for round - I demanded evidence - not expecting any.
You're right - there wasn't any.
However - pub had WIFI and there was this : www.stockchallenge.co.uk/ftse.php
I paid up. Even if promotion does not happen, divi due on 2/7.

Barchid and revshep. I am fairly sure Marston’s were not promoted in last re shuffle ftse 250. It would not be possible for 250 trackers to hold yet in their memorandums etc. Still Mid Cap

The only good thing compared to others is that they are now in such an enviable position to be able to grow from pure organic growth as the solid foundations are all in place, which is not something every other Company can rely on. This is a very well run Company in a very beneficial position regarding their properties which as we all know in the long run will rise in value long term, plus also in the short term once we get Brexit behind us. That is why Standard Life and Royal London have them in their portfolios for their investment schemes and pension funds. A good sold, well run Company expected to continue to grow through organic growth.

It's the same hypothesis with ITV as well at the moment with Liberty Global. That one has been stewing for quite some time to be fair and nothing has come of it as yet.

As with here, will anything come of it? Hard to say. Time will tell.

Could be a fund Manager or buyer to be honest. i.e. As you have said they are the largest Uk Brewer and cheap at the moment for any USD rated Company, they also own a lot of property which anyone taking over could asset strip out to recover the take over costs, and we know for one that Mr Buffett has already helped buyout Heinz and Cadburys, etc. and loves Uk food producers. This share could move up quite quickly even before Brexit is complete.

Very true, and 2.32million traded today.
It could be people are buying as it's now in the 250, or it could very well be corporate activity.
We watch with great interest !

It seems that most afternoons around 4pm there is a sizeable buy. The last two days it has been well over 600k shares.

It would seem that someone is quietly amassing a stake? As I have said before, it would fit very nicely into a US brewer despite its debt.

RE: Revalued property after Brexit.
7 Jun '19
Apart from properties, when Fuller's sold their brewing at such an astronomical price, it became clear that the Marston's assets are significantly undervalued in the books and that the Well's acquisition was indeed good value. Looking good, chart shows 120 smashed within a week … famous last words

Revalued property after Brexit.
6 Jun '19
Remember chaps when the Marstons properties where given a hit by the accountants and devalued it was thought this was a negative effect due to Brexit. however once we finally get this Brexit thing behind us the values should hopefully come back in line with foreign investment coming into the Country. I hear from US Fund managers that once Brexit is done they will start reviewing investing in the Uk, as they all now see the fallen values as a tremendous opportunity. Now could be a very good time to get back into the Top 250.

RE: Breakout ?

Thanks for that heads up, yes it is indeed tipped enthusiastically, I had to read it twice to make sure I wasn't missing something! They are the UK's largest brewer yet their share cap at present is too small for them to be in the FTSE 250, so there is plenty of upside if all goes to plan, however as a seasoned MARS watcher they usually suffer a few potholes on the way. It has often intrigued me why an overseas brewer doesn't snap them up, they are so cheap....

RE: Breakout ?

Hi Chaps, yes the low interest rates mean more money in the workers pockets for Beer and the warm weather helps sales too. Last summer was good for Marstons and now they are in the supermarkets for the weekends & barbeque weather too, they will do very well this year.
With so many Companies being so volatile in this market a good solid Company such as this is what one needs for the safe portfolio investor. With weather encouraging strong sales, low rates, solid growth and what with people staying in the Uk, I put as a strong buy.

No doubt this has contributed to the rise. GLA, looks like a good punt to me.
