retsius: Short term profit taking is the likely answer to the share price drop. Good figures. Where's portside 1?
walbrock82: After three horrible years, I see the deleveraging process is underway as they reduce operating leases via disposals. Still, the company hasn’t addressed their pension deficits and is n’t restoring their dividends anytime soon. With the share price being down by 70% and the kitchen-sinking of their assets, is this the time to buy? If business return back to normal, then Tesco can revalue their Assets to boost accounting profits (I calculate they have at least £3bn to play with). However, using the Earnings Power per share (championed by Phil Oakley), Tesco current share price is at a 63% premium to their fundamentals. But more concerning is the threat from Aldi and Lidl. After gaining a combined 7.3% of market share in the previous decade. They could take more of the pie in the next decade unless UK consumers abandon them. So, if we assume Aldi grows at 6% and Lidl at 5%, then ten years later, you would see a combined market share of 20.9%.

philanderer: Sector movers: Food retailers bought, oil stocks see profit taking (ShareCast News) - Food retailers led UK stocks higher on Wednesday amid a report about improving shop prices and a strong update from wholesaler and convenience store owner Booker. Although the BRC-Nielsen shop price index revealed overall shop price deflation eased to 0.3% in June from the 0.4% drop in May, food inflation persisted. Food prices rose 1.4% in June as they did the previous month, with fresh food prices up 1.4% in June, 0.2 percentage points higher than in May and the highest increase since February 2014, while ambient food inflation softened to 1.% from the 1.8% increase in May. Booker reported growth in like-for-like sales in the first quarter thanks to the late Easter and favourable weather, boosting Tesco, which is currently awaiting regulatory permission to take over the wholesaler. Broker Shore Capital said food inflation was "more of a positive than negative feature of the investment case for the supermarket segment". However, ShoreCap was cautious on Booker even though acknowledging the wholesale's quarterly performance was outstanding and ordinarily would have driven upgrades and a demonstrably positive share price reaction. "However, the decision to merge with Tesco, one of the worst performers in the FTSE-100 in CY2017, means that the Booker share is now a function of the supermarket chain. So, recovery, deleverage and negative sentiment to Amazon-Whole Food Markets is controlling Booker's share price as well as Tesco's. In time this may work through if the CMA grants approval for the merger. "However, if the CMA puts forward unpalatable remedies to Tesco then the de-rating risk to Booker could be considerable."

portside1: Performance Share Plan (PSP) The performance measures for the PSP award for 2016/17 have been changed from those used in 2015/16. The priority is to have a plan aligned with three key strategic priorities: PSP measures Performance measure Weighting Definition of measure Relative TSR vs index comprising companies from FTSE350 Food & Drug Retailers and FTSE350 General Retailers indices 50% Growth in share price plus dividends reinvested. These incorporate Tesco’s key competitors within the FTSE350 Food & Drug Retailers and FTSE350 General Retailers indices. The groups are weighted towards the Food & Drug Retailers to reflect Tesco’s long-term business split between food and general retail Retail cash generated from operations 30% Cumulative retail cash generated from operations +/- movement in working capital, excluding Tesco Bank Key stakeholder measures 20% Three stakeholder metrics: customers, suppliers and colleagues • delivery of significant value to shareholders through share price and dividend performance; • returning the business to be one that generates sustainable, quality cash flow; and • building trust with key stakeholders (customers, suppliers, colleagues). Therefore, we will use a combination of relative Total Shareholder Return, Cumulative Retail Cash Generated from Operations and key stakeholder measures to determine the vesting of awards. so why have no shares been clawed back all shares issued over the last 5 years should be cancelled under these rules , the share price as only fallen not gone up and to get these free shares the share price has to be over 275p
capeview: tenapen, I'm not saying it's healthy but when others keep saying Lewis is the best for the money and nothing to back it up, I don't know whats worse. I would love to hear feedback from others who may have more info to hand than me as to why Tesco is a great investment at the moment when you consider how poorly the share price is doing right now. And I'm sure you don't agree that paying the people running the company huge salaries and bonuses along with large Share handouts as a healthy or ethical thing when you consider how poor the share price is and the severe lack on any real information coming from the board on there Road Map for success?
capeview: I'm sure there is a saying somewhere about people who ignore the lunatic in the room at there own peril or some such. I did have Porty on filter at one stage but I like to see what he posts from time to time because i DON'T ignore the the so called lunatic. I'm not saying it's healthy that its day in day out, but I must say, I don't see a lot of people on here actually saying what Lewis and his board of directors is actually doing that makes me think Tesco is a worthwhile investment. Yes, we have Porty going off on one almost everyday, but I've never seen anyone else post anything that warrants the Boards payouts and share handouts, or why the Share price has nose dived so much over the last few weeks let alone months. I've not been on the boards much over the years so I don't know people as well as some others do, but I've yet to see any evidence from anybody else as to why Tesco is doing a good job and warrants there huge salaries and large handouts. After all, when the fish counter at my decent large local says Fresh Alaskan Salmon farmed, and the guy who I talk to behind the counter has said the managers are unwilling to change the title to Farmed Salmon because it's not Fresh Alaskan Salmon, then what else are the management of Tesco not doing. Yes, staff quality has improved, the helpfulness is better, but it's a huge miss compared to how the shopping experience is in Waitrose. And not only that, the quality of some of the food is definitely a bit poor when so called fresh produce doesn't last very well. Tesco Mobile and Banking are good services but they always were, that wasn't Lewis Work or his board. So what, if anything, can people say about Tesco and the Managing board of directors and there huge salaries and bonuses warrants the Poor performance of the share price when the Reports have been supposedly so good. Takers anyone, Would love to hear the feedback. Also, I'm not into bashing Porty, but I'm also not ignoring him either, because I'm not seeing anyone else come across with anything constructive except for saying Porty is the village lunatic.
lufc5: Less than three years ago, Tesco (LON:TSCO) was in dire straits. It had recently announced a possible overstatement of profits, its sales growth was negative and its outlook was downbeat. Fast forward to today and the company’s potential for rising profitability as well as an increasing share price is high. The catalyst for this revolution is the company’s CEO, Dave Lewis, and the rest of its management team. Although a relative unknown when he took the job in September 2014, he has had a huge influence on the company’s fortunes. He and his team have made the business smaller, simpler and provided a clear sense of identity for a company which was becoming lost in its pursuit of conglomerate-like status. The speed of change at the company has probably surprised most investors. However, it shows the difference which can be made by having the right management team in place. In my view, a company’s reputation, balance sheet strength and economic moat count for little unless the right team is in place to manage it. Scope for change Prior to the arrival of Dave Lewis as CEO, Tesco had become a jack-of-all-trades and, arguably, a master of none. It had diversified into a number of frivolous sectors which ultimately sapped management time and investment capital away from the majority of its business. For example, it sought to become a major player in the USA grocery industry via its Fresh & Easy brand. While it was at times able to post strong LFL sales growth, high profitability proved elusive despite significant investment. At the same time as expanding into the USA, Tesco also sought to diversify its operations away from groceries. While this is understandable in some respects, since the company had become the dominant grocery store in the UK, the choice of industries was sometimes difficult to follow. For example, Tesco decided to sell its own tablet, purchased garden centres, coffee shops and even ventured into used car sales for a short while. None of these ventures proved as successful as had been envisaged and they created, rather than reduced, risk in my opinion. All of these changes were being put in place at a time when Tesco faced its biggest challenges in a number of years. UK consumer spending was under severe pressure and no-frills alternatives such as Lidl and Aldi were grabbing market share. At a time when it should have been seeking a ‘lean and mean’ efficiency drive, Tesco had lost focus and discipline. Major changes The enormity of the task facing Tesco’s new management team was difficult to overestimate. However, a number of simple, logical decisions helped to gradually turn the company around and even more importantly, set out a clear vision for how the company would change in the long run. …a number of simple, logical decisions helped to gradually turn the company around… First, Tesco returned to being a grocer. Non-core activities were shunned in order to create a simpler, more efficient and more manageable entity. Second, Tesco focused on its UK operations. While controversial at the time given its success in territories such as Korea, this decision allowed the company’s management to drive all capital into improving the bulk of the business. Third, Tesco sought to compete with lower-cost rivals through reducing the ranges on offer, cutting costs and also investing in store refurbishments and customer service. The latter of these changes helped to create a degree of customer loyalty and product differentiation versus Aldi and Lidl. This resonated well with customers at a time when the UK economy was emerging from the financial crisis. Although still highly price conscious, real-terms wage growth helped to dilute the focus on price and make other factors such as convenience, customer service and quality more important to the company’s target market of customers. Future strategy While Tesco has become a better business under its current management team, it faces an uncertain future. Inflation and wage growth in the UK are now at the same level of 2.3%. However, it seems highly probable that inflation will surpass wage growth in the coming months, since a weak pound is gradually filtering through into higher prices. This is likely to cause a squeeze on consumer spending and lead to a more price conscious consumer. In response, Tesco is continuing to improve its financial strength and core profitability. It reduced net debt by 27% in the most recent financial year and is on course to deliver £1.5 billion in cost savings over the medium term. This could allow it to reach an operating margin of 4% by 2020, which would represent an almost doubling of its current operating margin of 2.3%. Given the potential for lacklustre sales growth due to weakness in consumer spending, efficiency and sustainability measures could help the company to outperform its rivals. Alongside this, investment in its core products such as the £300 million announced in its full-year results may also prove to be a sound strategy to pursue, given the likelihood of greater competition within the UK grocery industry. Outlook In my opinion, Tesco is one of the most successful recent turnaround stories in the FTSE 350. Although its recovery is not yet complete, its transition from failure to success has been swift and at least partly unexpected. It is now positioned to deliver double-digit EPS growth in each of the next two years and has become a more efficient and sustainable growth opportunity for investors. Key to this has been its current management team. They have refocused the business on the UK, left behind dreams of a conglomerate-like business model and sought to deliver an improved product offering to compete for customers. While economic difficulties could lie ahead, the continued focus on efficiency and the possible synergies from the Booker acquisition could drive Tesco’s profitability and share price higher.
sailastra: For those interested...Lewis put his feet under his desk September 2014. The share price started 2010 well above 400p The major collapse started in October 2013 when a down trend in the share price was established at 370p that down trend was finally broken in mid Feb of 2016 from which time the down trend line became a support level. The up trend began in June of 2016...That up trend has held although is being tested today... Blaming Lewis is like blaming the fireman for the fire....and arguing that he has destroyed the share price is asinine...In truth it has merely gone sideways at these levels....Tesco was badly managed and did not read the future, it is however a potentially great business but like Rome it will take more than a day to rebuild.
alphahunter: As often with mergers/take-overs, there has been an overshoot in TSCO share price. Day-trading short is looking good.
mornington crescent: kazoom the chart was posted as much for its entertainment value as anything else One year charts for MRW and OCDO look very similar SBRY ia about a quarter of the size of TSCO and so is MRW so comparison is not very meaningful SBRY share price is lower than it was 20 years ago (thats as far back as my charts go, so I dont know where the floor might be TSCO share price has fallen to where it was 10 years ago but has reached an obvious chart support level
