TMF's Kevin Godbold penned this item;

It could be time for me to buy shares in this 7%+ dividend yielder

I wrote favourably about pub operator and brewer Marston’s (LSE: MARS) at the time of its full-year results back in November 2018. Indeed, the firm had been trading well and looked attractive to me on the grounds of a low valuation and a high dividend yield.

Trading Statement.

Trading

We have achieved sales growth in both our pub and beer businesses in the 42 week period to date, despite weaker sales in the last 16 weeks reflecting strong trading in the same period last year, which included the World Cup and an unusually hot summer.

idpickering, although marked down 8/9% at the mo that quote above is not to be dismissed is my initial view, interesting to see where the SP finishes today.

This TMF contributor talks favourably of Marston's.

Forget the Cash ISA! I think this FTSE 250 stock yielding 6.2% is all you need

At the time of writing, the best interest rate available on a Cash ISA is just 1.5%. This dismal rate of interest doesn’t even match the current rate of inflation, meaning the purchasing power of any money deposited will decline steadily over time.

With this being the case, I’m on the hunt for income stocks that might offer a better place to invest your money in the current interest rate environment. One of the companies I believe could be an attractive addition to your portfolio is pub group Marston’s (LSE: MARS).

Went out to eat last night were we are staying in Surrey and was amazed how busy the pubs in the villages were on a Tuesday evening, two we could not park near and the third we just managed to find a space in the car park but had to wait for a table

The food was excellent as was the ale however did not think it cheap at £150 for four but the place was packed including the gardens and seemed to be run with the minimum number of staff who were all foreign but coped very well under pressure with no visable sign of the landlord/lady

Watching the price of Marston today and intend to top up when the price stops falling

I think the key point in MARS is that with the new chairman they are finally cutting their debt mountain, this update ALSO pointed out that they were deferring new builds to the tune of £70mill, which I read as more positive than their like for like up slightly despite bad weather.
If folk aren't drinking beer in this period not yet reported on then I'll eat my hat !
The CEO has always been keen on new builds, even though the market were crying out for less debt.
