loganair: Analysts hail Sainsbury's 'Lazarus moment' by Caitlin Morrison Sainsbury's share price rose at the open after the supermarket reported strong sales growth in the first quarter. The stock was up one per cent at the time of writing as the retailer's trading update showed it beat expectations during the 16 weeks to 1 July, and analysts have hailed the company's turnaround under the leadership of Mike Coupe. "It’s little short of a Lazarus moment," said John Ibbotson, director of retail consultancy Retail Vision. "No longer leaning precariously on the Argos crutch, the Sainsbury’s core business is back on its feet and growing food sales at a healthy clip. "These results are the first to blur the progress of the two brands since last year’s acquisition – but Sainsbury’s no longer needs to hide behind Argos’s success." Ibbotson added that Coupe’s acquisition gamble is "looking more inspired by the day". "But this has been no lucky break - the CEO’s turnaround plan was painstakingly drafted and diligently executed," he said. "And this strong return to form is a vindication of the strategy and a testament to his vision and courage." Laith Khalaf at Hargreaves Lansdown was slightly less positive on what today's trading update means for Sainsbury's. "The bigger picture is still a challenging one for the UK supermarkets," he said. "Weaker sterling is pushing up food prices and putting a dent in consumers’ purses, while the trading environment remains as competitive as ever. "Indeed the turf war the big supermarkets have been fighting against the discounters may start to look like a schoolyard skirmish if Amazon decides it wants a piece of the UK grocery market. The Amazon Fresh service is already being trialled in the UK, and the online retailer’s recent purchase of Whole Foods sent shock waves through the sector." Khalaf added that it is "little wonder" that UK supermarkets are turning to new areas to try and boost profits. "Sainsbury’s purchase of Argos looks to be delivering results, and the supermarket is reportedly in talks to buy the convenience chain Nisa to try to broaden its footprint, no doubt at least in part a response to Tesco’s proposed takeover of Booker and its network of franchised convenience stores," he added. "While all this recovery, refocusing and reinvention goes on, investors have to accept there’s still a lot of uncertainty in the UK supermarket sector."

loganair: Alastair Mundy, whose Temple Bar Investment Trust is the absolute top performer in the AIC UK Equity Income sector over the past year, has revealed the reasons why he has been buying Sainsbury shares. ‘Over the last few years the portfolio has held two food retailers, Tesco and Wm Morrison, both of which are now recovering after their poor trading experience of previous years. We invested in these two companies as we believed they could outperform the very competitive food retail market rather than because we thought that the sales pool of this mature market was likely to increase significantly or that industry profitability would greatly exceed previous peaks. Whilst we retain this view, there is now evidence of improving market dynamics with lower capital expenditure and the return of food price inflation. Just as importantly, the larger retailers are competing more successfully against the discounters. The discounters have grown market share by selling good quality food at very low prices, retailed in low cost formats, but the incumbents are now pricing much more keenly, have improved product quality and increased service standards. Consequently, the extraordinary sales and profits growth of the discounters have probably peaked and the market’s assumption of sizeable market share increases over the next few years may be too optimistic.’ He added, ‘This increases our confidence that the larger food retailers can continue their recovery and so we have added J Sainsbury to the portfolio. Sainsbury’s valuation has begun to look somewhat anomalous versus that of its peers; in enterprise value terms (i.e. equity value plus the group’s net debt), Sainsbury is currently valued at approximately 25% of its sales whereas both Morrison and Tesco are valued at more than 40% of their revenues. Sainsbury’s purchase of the Home Retail Group, the owner of Argos, could prove to be a compelling deal as it will allow the group to make more productive use of its excess space and drive significant footfall, whilst creating an enterprise with more than 2,000 collection points. The Argos deal clearly has some risks (both in terms of being a management distraction and pushing Sainsbury more into competition with Amazon) but we feel these are adequately reflected in the share price.’

christh: Lidl isn't in trouble now? THe £ is fallen compared to euro and as it imports everything from Germany apart from the vegetables, it must find itself pricing its stuff higher than Tesco, Morrisons,Sainsburys, Asda and others. Lidl does not sell brand stuff, it only sells its own stuff which is not quality,flavour,taste or standard. So not a match for the big 4. Going back to SBRY..... Argos is due for a good Xmas as a strong retailer during the festive period. The SBRY price will get to 300p not 280p as things improving. The Argos same day delivery is a very positive step to challenge Amazon and other online retailers. I wonder will it be another offer on the table for SBRY with the additional asset of having Argos. Whatever happens we have seen the bottom now we'll see the top of the share price. Be vigilant, watch volume and buy for long term.

careful: what a load of old tosh. how can you analyse the SBRY share price with so many short positions open. over 10% on loan. i do not understand the logic of the shorters here. short at 400p ok that makes sense. ..but short at 270p is crazy. there must be better targets.

edmundshaw: Deal is worth over 160p even if you assume Sainsburys share price was fair at 240p. What? So Coupe accepts 240p as the new normal for SBRY share price? While accepting that 100p was a vastly depressed share price for HOME? Seems that "We will not overpay" is director code for "we are prepared to overpay substantially and screw out own shareholders". Must remember that for future reference :-(

loganair: Time to go shopping for Sainsbury’s? By Robert Sutherland Smith: Sainsbury at 253p after the interim results. The traditional quoted food retail sector is still undergoing a big change on an undetermined time scale. On that basis, Sainsbury shares may not look an obvious buy. However, I argue that the shares are attractive when the financial fundamentals are recognised. The shares, after the results of the first half of the current year, are priced at 253p and look pretty bombed out on those fundamentals. Our home grown food retailers (who of course sell more than food) have been in the grip of an insurmountable problem: losing market share to outside competitors who have been increasing their market share. Nothing can be more debilitating for a big business than the loss of scale and economic and financial benefits that come with scale of operations, whilst the competitive interlopers (in this case Lidl and Aldi, the Hengist and Horsa of UK retailing) are increasing and improving theirs. That is a bit like their fighting with one arm tied behind their back. The big question is how long it will take before the now more competitive sector settles down into a new equilibrium. No one knows and it is difficult to guess. Moreover, there are other threats to the current sector players – including the invaders. As our legacy retailers of staple products spot ‘on line’ shopping as a lower cost opportunity, internet operators like Amazon spot ‘on line’ sales of food stuff as a new market opportunity. We are clearly only part way through some pretty momentous changes in this sector; none of which are susceptible to clear visibility and easy prediction and certainly not credible forecasting. However, as always, there is the usual solution of some future consolidation amongst the retreating traditional players like Sainsbury, Tesco, Morrison and Waitrose etc. I suspect that will become a genuine prospect in due course, particularly if Amazon come into the food retailing business – taking even more British Exchequer tax revenue to other taxation jurisdictions no doubt. So, is there a case for buying UK food retailers and Sainsbury in particular? The elementary factors guiding us in answering such a question, include the following: that all companies in their activities are subject to degrees of uncertainty; share prices over time move to discount evolving news, facts and prospects; long term investors with wealth to preserve and hopefully grow, need a spread of investments and risk. That includes food retail shares of course. Coming to Sainsbury specifically, the best argument for investing money in it in comparison with other retail shares is that the share price is now discounting the difficulties. The share price last seen was 253p after the last interim results. About two years ago, the share price was over 400p. What does an investor now get for his or her money? First, a lot of sales revenue; on the basis of last year’s sales annual revenue at £23.5 billion on an equity capitalisation of £4.8 billion; put another way a share price of 253p buying historic sales revenue of an estimated 1,237p per share. Second, a very low price to book valuation. In fact the share price last seen stands at a 13% discount to balance sheet net assets in March. The market capitalisation of Sainsbury equity, currently standing at a value of £4.8 billion, commands an enterprise value which is three and a half times larger. In the balance sheet of 14th March last, total assets were stated as £16.5 billion. Also note that last year’s EBITD (basically profits before interest, taxation and depreciation are charged) amounted to £770 million putting Sainsbury shares on an EBITDA ratio of only 6.2 times on the basis of last year’s figures. Despite the gearing, interest costs were reportedly covered 6 times on an annual basis and 7.4 times on an interim basis. The shares price also stands at only 3.7 times last year’s annual cash and near cash held. Such valuations are strikingly low. Turning to the latest interim results, the disappointing news include the facts that the interim dividend was cut 20%; that there was a loss of market share and thinner margins; that sales fell 2%; and that underlying profits fell by 18%. The company is responding, we are told, by improving its own branded ‘taste the difference’ products, which, against the 2% fall in sales, actually grew by a reported 2% in volume terms. However, the incoming new CEO Mike Coupe talks of cutting costs according to a programme that seems ahead of schedule. The company is also increasing its convenience stores (very much the fashion in the sector) where sales have risen by a reported 11%, on the back of a one fifth increase in the number of such stores. Moreover, the retailer is developing its new Tu clothing offer – sales up 10% over the first half – as well as building its Sainsbury banking operation which is for the moment absorbing transformation cost. At a given point the bank should obviously be making a contribution to net profits. The market is estimating a 17% fall in earnings this year to earnings per share about 22p, putting the shares on a forward estimated price to earnings ratio of just over 11 times. The consensus estimate, at this juncture, is for a further 2% decline in earnings the year after that. Interestingly, it forecasts top line sales revenue for this year as being static at £23.75 billion and pretty close to that again in the following year at an estimated sales revenue figure of £23.52 million. In essence then, the market seems to be calculating that Sainsbury will hold its sales, with a well understood fall in earnings this year but holding on to most of those earnings the following year. The market consensus also estimates that the annual dividend will be reduced twenty per cent in line with the cut in the interim dividend. At the 10.5p dividend payout estimated for this year and next year the estimated annual dividend yield for this year and next is 4.4% p.a. As I always say on such occasions, I am no more gifted in seeing the future than the rest of humanity. However, as a compensation for that lack of prophetic vision, I can identify value in the here and now. Sainsbury at this level shows quite a lot of what we call fundamental value, as indicated above. With the share price at a discount to balance sheet net assets, investors now are arguably being asked to pay nothing for earnings. It will be interesting to see whether at this stage and at these levels of valuation, the bears will be tempted to fold up their short positions together with their tents. Sainsbury is reported to have been one of the most shorted shares in the market. Technically, the shares have been moving sideways for over a year in a trading range of roughly between 220p and 290p. Arguably, the share price looks as though it might have broken out of the earlier downtrend that took it into that range. Have a look and see if that is your interpretation.
