I had to wiki Shameless as I hadn't a clue what you were on about. I don't watch much tv and from what I read that type of programme wouldn't appeal to me but if you are into soap operas and the like then good on you.
I think Opium might have hit on something and tesco do appear to be having issues with clubcard redemptions at the moment. The latest email from tesco is indicating erroneously that we selected vouchers for Prezzo but like Shameless I had never heard of them either. I have some points of my own to redeem and I'll see how that goes. Hopefully a bit smoother than this palaver for a pensioner.
As regards all the other stuff, well if there is all this hacking going on then we'll never know if a trader is meaning strong sell when they are recorded as posting strong buy. Fortunately the few honest personal investors on the bbs usually are able to identify each other among the unscrupulous rabble. Night.
Thanks david. Over the years, I have done various days out and meals out with our own tesco clubcard vouchers which arrived through the post in physical form. For various reasons, we have fewer points of our own to redeem these days but granny wanted in on the act. It's been difficult to explain to her that her purchase of a newspaper and 2 bananas from tesco express every once in a while take a long time to convert to a voucher for spending at bellas but she has qualified for two and fortunately I can drive her right to the door of one of bella's branches for her pasta and she can treat me for a change. She doesn't have a computer so I deal with this for her and I discovered today that the problem is that bella vouchers are no longer posted out but emailed out. We can't find the email with the code but tesco clubcard are promising to resend it - so all's well that end well I hope.
Opium I was aware of that news story but I'm no deramper or shorter and my clubcard issue is totally unrelated to that story. I don't think granny has had her email address stolen as she has never emailed anybody in her life lol unless she has joined cupid unknowns to the family which might be no bad thing as nothing would give me more satisfaction than her gaining a toy boy widower or singleton to stop one of her greedy sons from getting his inheritance and it even crossed my mind that said greedy son had used granny's postal voucher to feed his own fat face lol! I can't remember my own passwords let alone the one I used for her which seems to have been part of our problem here as well. Pretty sure netley guessed one of my passwords once but I've been ultra cautious since. I'll let you know when the issue gets resolved. Goodnight
It was not Tesco website that had the information stolen in the first instance but a website with a client file using email address & password as key, like CUP or LSE, before being matched against TSCO logons, to find punters who had used the same password.
Gerry, three reasons for waiting for a lower price 1) a few brokers have mentioned those prices as low end estimates and of the 100 stocks I follow, many have eventually hit the low end estimate. 2) I am a little concerned about Tesco's overseas earnings and some currency risk. 3) I am expecting the S&P / Dow to pull back significantly eventually (next two months). It will be interesting to see what was priced in and what was not on 16/4 when preliminary results are published. If I see a bargain before then thern I will still buy, but there might be more things on the horizon to make the stock price go down rather than up at the moment?
Wentlock - Buying plungers is what I have done recently and had a nibble of RR and um and erring over tate. Need to dig out my previous notes on this one as I cant remember if it was a buy or sell previously to compare.
RSA next after results maybe?
QueenElvis - That doesn't sound like fun but then again neither are shares, the referendum on the break up of the UK and the state of British retail. My fun last night consisted of watching a couple of episodes of True Detective. It has some good recommendations but I found it slow going or smoldering. Not sure yet if it is "fun" I have decided to watch another episode though so it is growing on me but the verdict is still open.
Mrs G found it interesting that a major concern was if an independent Scotland would still have BBC. I wonder what our concerns would be from the other side of the wall. Probably how many bottles of duty free Scottish whiskey we can bring back or something of equally major importance.
Back to topic on Tesco. Wenty, why do you see both those supermarkets falling so low?
No problem gerry. We've had useful discussions on other bbs about the impact , if any, Scottish independence may have on the retail sector. I can honestly say this Sunday night that shares, the referendum on the break up of the UK and the state of British retail are among some of the furthest things from my mind. I probably have a mild interest in buying grapes at the moment but not of the crushed variety. Have a good Sunday night all. I'm off to chase up the disappearance of a pensioner's Tesco clubcard vouchers which could keep me occupied for the foreseeable future and might involve raking through bins, piles of mail and newspapers etc. . She's not eating much at the moment but she said I could use them to part fund a nice Italian in Bella Italia's. Funny thing is I don't think I have the appetitie lol.
