Perhaps it is best to gnore Opium - he has been claiming to be 'topping up' since the SP was well above £3.00. His only response now is to try and do that, IMPO, stupid thing that all desperate people do on LSE - claim that anyone who is posting objective posts about any company whose SP is falling is some kind of shorter.
Frankly, when I see that on this site I just laugh at the poster and think how sad they are. Opium has been insinuating that myself and others on here are shorters... and even followed me over to the MRW board to ask if I am a shorter. It is just ludicrous. It is pathetic - as if anything that is said or posted on here could affect the SP of Tesco in any way. Rubbish.
If you want to see where that madness goes you only have to visit the QPP board to see countless posts each day claiming that such and such person is part of some convuluted shorting campaign.
Frankly, when people start making such allegations in posts you realise how desperate they are.
Any day now I am expecting Opium to start a shareholders action group like the QPP SAG.
I used to read Opium's posts with interest but when I see a post is by his name now I just ignore it as I can't be bothered reading whatever drivel he has written.
The bottom line on both TSCO and MRW is that both are losing market share to the Germans and other discounters - if we have a profit warning from either company both shares could drop 5% or 10% within an hour of any such profit warning.
Aldi/Lidl trade on limited lines, Tesco has multiple. It would need a totally different business model to compete, Tesco woudl be better positioned to compete on quality/variety/conveince and non-food items.
equality its all a gamble... you might get your 225 then again...... its pure luck if you call the bottom getting in within a few percent of it and you would be doing well you could always buy a tranche soon and keep some ammo spare so as to hedge your bets but dont miss out on any recovery in the sp by being fixated on getting in at the bottom odds are you wont
Agree with your view, Tesco will not sit back, whatever they do will impact on the share price. All I am saying is that in the short term there will be more volatility and an opportunity to get in at £2.25 or below, then as you say, stay in for the long term. I want to Invest in Tesco for the long term, but see the price going lower. I may be completely wrong and miss an entry point at the current price. Just my thoughts based on current facts, uncertainty over the leadership strategy going forward and overall current poor sentiment in this sector.
the supermarket is seriously out if favour atm as we all know im not expecting 300 any time soon it will come though when this starts being turned around i cant see tsco rolling over and letting aldi and lidl walking all over them will admit they were very slow to do anything about it you are talking from a shorters or traders point of view maybe you should be asking others like minded long term minded pi with divs reinvested will still do well over time imho
I thought one of the complaints was lack of staff and the last chap improved this after a time of neglect ............ but then again that was the old chap.
The new chap will ......................... add you own statement.
Maybe they could have "cheaper checkouts" where you pay a lower price but will have to wait or you stand in an empty check out and they PA for a checkout trained staff to come and assist you immediately at normal price. I am starting to sound like Willie Walsh!
