WM Morrison Supermarkets (LSE: MRW) is a UK blue-chip which, like Taylor Wimpey, is set to update the market in the coming days. It’s scheduled to unpack Christmas trading numbers on January 7, but unlike the housebuilder, I’m fearful over what the FTSE 100 firm will have to say for itself given the depressed state of consumer spending and the increasing fragmentation of the grocery sector.The supermarket didn’t exactly fill me with confidence last time it updated the market in September. I wasn’t expecting fireworks given the strong results of a year earlier, numbers that had been boosted by good weather and the support of the FIFA World Cup. But a 1.9% drop in like-for-like sales in the most recent April-June period gave investors plenty to think about as industry figures suggest a tougher time for Britain’s ‘Big Four’ supermarkets.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Bad data!The latest Kantar Worldpanel report in the interim has certainly made for grim reading for Morrisons and its traditional rivals like Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda. Indeed, the Bradford firm has been the worst-performing of all these established chains of late, sales dropping 2.9% year on year in the 12 weeks to December 1.Sales across the broader grocery category continue to slow and for the last three-month period, growth clocked in at a meagre 0.5%, Kantar says. The researcher said that “we’re yet to see consumers ramp up their spending in the run-up to Christmas and, as anticipated, Black Friday only brought a limited boost for the grocers.” However, the impact of this month’s general election and wet weather has done little to dent the march of the discounters, firms that have ripped up the market domination of Morrisons and its peers.According to Kantar, sales at Aldi and Lidl boomed 6.2% and 9.3% in the period ending December 1, crowning what has been another brilliant year for the disruptors. Their growing influence means that the aggregated market share of the Big Four dropped to 67.7% at the start of the month versus 69.1% at the same point in 2018.Big risksIn the trading release I mentioned at the top of the piece, Morrisons chief executive David Potts struck a rather bullish tone, despite that big revenue fall in Q2. He said that “we are planning both for retail [like-for-like revenues] to improve” in the second half of the fiscal year and for “additional cost saving opportunities” too.But should the very real threat of more sales weakness be revealed in next week’s release, then the retailer’s share price — which fell around 5% in 2019 — could come under fresh stress. Right now, Morrisons trades on a forward P/E ratio of 14.4 times, in line with the broader FTSE 100 average. But given the high chance of earnings forecasts missing their mark, I reckon the supermarket should be much, much cheaper. In my opinion it’s a share best avoided like the plague.

first, the investor’s money is not the same. Regular LP is a long-term fund, proprietary funds, understand the high risk of venture capital and entrepreneurship, only to have the patience to withstand 3-10 years of investment exit.

third, investors will enter the board of directors of start-up companies, but the board of directors of the company’s major decisions. The investment institutions like this one in your board of directors coexistence N years with you, entrepreneurs should not spend time and effort to understand investors? Know what style, what investors can reputation, and entrepreneurial companies grow together?
said the importance of investors to start a company, to see what kind of investors looking for or can not find. Because entrepreneurs have to contact the partners, basically in accordance with the standards of partners to talk about.
first, less professional investors looking for less. Everyone’s perception of the "professional". Is not a graduate of the elite are professional investors?. Professional investment reflected in the understanding of the industry, there are exit returns. Two kinds of people in a more professional, is designed to make the investment more than 5 years, with the successful exit (including listed company or sell); one is deep in the vertical industry, their record industry or business executives, companies listed or sold, or is the industry’s leading enterprises to do VP, some industry visibility.
second, cheat eat cheat drink investors can not find. Before the emergence of an empty capital of a cloud, the name of the name of the name of the tune of the tune, so >
