Mitchells & Butlers edges up ahead of trading statement

The steady decline in the pub group’s shares goes on however, with no positive catalyst yet in sight.

Shares in Mitchells & Butlers (M&B) continue to decline, and have yet to find a reason to change that.

The most recent updates erred very much on the side of caution, with no sales guidance given at all, leaving investors all at sea.

Like many firms over the past year, a huge rally in the second half of 2020 and into 2021 has been followed by a drift lower - low in volatility but relentless in its nature. M&B is no exception. A summer bounce to 300p merely created a lower high as it hit the upper bound of the descending channel.

Ongoing speculation about new variants of Covid-19 and the fear that restrictions will return in the autumn/winter in some form continue to dog the sector, and it looks like M&B will have to keep on the cautious side of things to avoid the risk of overpromising and underdelivering.

Dip buyers might look for a bounce in the short-term into the trading statement, but the lifespan of such a bounce seems limited to the upper bound of the descending channel for the time being.

A daily close above 300p is needed to break the current pattern of lower highs and lower lows.

    • Hi.. I'm aware that there are I think monthly or quarterly fees for an account, and these can be minimised by doing X amount of trades per month.  But if I had for example 2 share dealing accounts and an ISA account (which I do), will I have to pay 3 sets of account fees? And if I do, do my number of trades have to be in just one to take advantage of reduction of fees across the board or it just applies to that account? Hope that makes sense, Thanks ,😊
    • NFP TALKING POINTS: This morning’s NFP report disappointed on the headline number and in Average Hourly Earnings. On the positive side, the unemployment rate fell to 4.2%, below the Fed’s threshold for ‘maximum employment.’ This morning’s NFP report had little to be excited about with the headline figure printing at a paltry 235k v/s the expected 550k. Also disappointing was the Average Hourly Earnings portion of the report, which denotes inflation in the more important mechanism of wage growth. On the positive side, the unemployment rank dropped to 4.2%, below the 4.5% expected and the 4.6% from last month. This is important as the Fed has been saying that they’re looking for ‘maximum employment’ before tilting policy in a more-hawkish direction. The Fed’s line-in-the-sand for maximum employment is 4.5% so, we’re there. The bank has previously said that they’d like to see multiple months of this before making any knee-jerk decisions, but this is something that will likely be noted at the December FOMC rate decision. In response to the this morning’s NFP report, little was clear across markets. The US Dollar put in a quick drop but that was met with a bullish response. As of this writing, 45 minutes after the release, and the US Dollar is trading at a session high after recovering the entirety of the NFP-fueled sell-off. As I had shared yesterday, the bullish theme in the US Dollar remains a major push point across FX markets, and this morning’s reaction to the NFP print has proven this to be correct again.
