- This looks one of the best shorts on the FTSE, does anyone even buy clothes in this shop now? Dead retail space has been a major long term problem from retailers since the recession, a big part of the big retailers current problem, all the non food stuff that does not sell, that is M&S's big problem with clothing!

- I went to search their website yesterday, found it barely usable. Look at the recent Kantar data on MKS % market share in clothing to the end of August, that is a highly significant drop and should not be underestimated.

- "Older shopper numbers are inevitably dwindling" . . surely they are not. Ageing demographic and so forth. Disposable income of the 60+ generation should make MKS a winner - the real issue is surely why so many of this generation (my generation) have deserted M&S.

- Asagi, I found shorting far more tricky than being long in these markets, naturally. I think that the bulls' argument for being long in MKS is the generation of FcF at this stage, with peak investment behind us. I may succomb to that argument for a week or two. No position here.

- What they need to do is add short-term cheap clothing stock that is well designed and also designed for the european body and not the oriental body. They need european designers and cutters not oriental ones.

- Yes I think Johnwise summed M&S up well. His "kind of clothes you'd be embarrassed to buff the car with" was classic. I wonder whether the the 'high fashion' items featured are actually loss leaders and are merely enticements into the store in the the hope people will buy the profitable rubbish.

- FTSE 100 trades 0.3% higher at 6655.54, helped by the more dovish tone emanating from the minutes of the latest Federal Reserve meeting. The Bank of England kept rates on hold as expected. Hays climbs over 5% after a bullish trading statement, but Marks & Spencer slumps 3.3% despite reported a 1.9% rise in fourth-quarter sales, slightly above the 1.8% rise in the third quarter.
- MIATA 15:35:56 07/04/2014
- M&S is expected to underwhelm with its latest trading update on Thursday. The company is widely expected to post a decline of 1% in its clothing division in the first three months of the year, while sales within the Food division are forecast to be flat.
- mechanical trader 18:46:31 02/04/2014
- Looks like MKS as found support and rising from a double bottom pattern. SP targets are resistance lines to be taken out on the chart. The oscillators are looking very bullish. The company reports on the 10th of April a Trading Statement.

- M&S still need to trade the year yet!They are going to fail to deliver!No one is shopping the stores and the bad news will continue to follow them.I'm just waiting its good for 4,00 yet.Delayed reaction that's all!

- Well...I'm speechless I have to admit. This wasnt the share price I quite had in mind, but its welcome. Looks like Bolland may have a little more time to see the fruits of his labour. I hope there worth it, for all our sakes.

- As far as i can see, Marc Bolland never had a position at Somerfields. His forte is clearly food and drink and that he excells at. To be fair the rot set in with the decline in clothes sales long before he arrived at M&S. He'd been better staying at Morrisons.
