'Burberry Needs to Sharpen Up'

Possible holders of the stake could be rivals LMVH and US group Coach, private equity or an activist investor. “Burberry is one of the few luxury brands without family interest and thus an easier target for acquisition,” said Macquarie analyst Daniele Gianera told the FT.

Ken Odeluga, market analyst at City Index, said:

It appears that Burberry’s challenging trading conditions in the Asia-Pacific region which have weighed on its top line for at least 18 months and pushed the stock down 40% last year (though the shares have since recouped some of that) have attracted opportunistic interest.

Burberry could amount to a prize acquisition for what we would regard as its ‘ideal’ buyer: one with the longest possible horizon with respect to Burberry’s largest non-domestic markets.

The reports have sent Burberry shares nearly 5% higher to £14.35, but not everyone is convinced. Analyst Nick Bubb said:

As the so-called “mystery” HSBC stake of around 5% in Burberry has been around for some time and includes their fund management holdings, it is not
clear why Burberry are on takeover alert, but the City has taken no chances and pushed the share price up.


Bid speculation is increasing after Burberry shares slid 27 percent in the past year. The company in January reported Christmas revenue that trailed its own forecast, hurt by a slump in demand in Hong Kong. Burberry is scaling back stores, cutting bonuses and consolidating products under one label after forecasting earnings will probably fall for a second straight year.

“In terms of a takeover target, Burberry’s valuation had reached the point where shareholder activism was increasingly likely in our view,” said John Guy, an analyst at MainFirst Bank AG. LVMH and Richemont are two major trade buyers that would have sufficient resources to make a bid, while Qataris could figure among private-equity bidders, he said.

Maybe a bit early :-D
Well done Phil - buy the rumour sell the news it's always a good strategy.
Sold out @ 1430p ..... 18% profit long in a couple of week is too good to miss, mainly on hot air and a concerted ramp ;-)

Back on the watchlist

more than I thought .. +4%

'Mystery stake builder puts Burberry on alert'

07:00 08 Mar 2016

The FT reckons the fashion brand is on bid alert after a new investor joined the shareholder register.

It will be interesting to see how shares in Burberry react to one of the main stories in the Financial Times. For the paper says a mystery investor has built up a stake of close to 5% in the fashion house, prompting it to seek help from its financial advisers to defend it against any potential takeover bid.

Evening tongosti , nothing new really , these rumours were doing the rounds early last week. Can`t think the share price will react much to it.

Mail headlining it as well tomorrow....

MARKET REPORT: Is bouncing Burberry now turning heads in the private equity world as well as on the catwalk?

Burberry may be attracting some dedicated followers of fashion in the US and the private equity world, according to rumours flaunted on the City’s catwalk yesterday.

Market chatter had it that the upmarket fashion house was turning the head of US luxury handbag retailer Coach as well as private equity firms.
The shares have fallen about 28 per cent from a five-year peak of above 1900p in February last year as the company has faced tough markets in key territories such as Hong Kong and China.

Burberry reported flat third-quarter like-for-like sales in January in what is described as a challenging environment for luxury goods.
But that was better than the 4 per cent decline in the second quarter, helped by a return to growth in mainland China.

And the shares bounced back about 9 per cent last week, although they closed last night off 9p at 1371p.

Burberry declined to comment on the speculation, which follows consolidation elsewhere in the sector as luggage maker Samsonite last week agreed to buy luxury bag maker Tumi for £1.3billion.

Interesting day tomorrow then!

(@Mo06: bloody hell, Mo. It’s widespread journalistic convention to talk about closing prices not intraday levels.)
Now, we mentioned Burberry in passing on Friday as some people have been growing suspicious about this extended rally.
It might be ahead of results, where Burberry’s widely expected to cut back on growth spending and suchlike.
It might be on sterling, which is clearly a help.
Or …. well, there’s been all sorts of talk recently about luxury goods consolidation.
(I’m back. Sorry about that.)
Who’d buy Burberry though? LVMH, Kering ….. perhaps even Coach.
(having to deal with some serious external bullying)
I’d be really surprised if there’s a move on Burberry right now
Luxury generally has fallen off a cliff.
Why move now?
There’s no visibility
(@Mo: best tell the Guardian. hxxp://www.theguar…e100-business-live …)
(One of my daughters is in the fine jewellery trade. Trust me, it’s fallen off a cliff since the turn of the year.)
Yeah, I don’t entirely get this Burberry rally and, as I say, it’s all extremely vague rumour rather than anything specific.
But if we go back to the Nomura note from last week, it does point out that Burberry carries very little debt.
Because of the way it accounts for leases, which might seem over cautious.
Perhaps there’s an LBO story here? I dunno. I reiterate, I don’t know what the story is. But there seems to be a story. So I note it.

Burberry to dress Adele on her world tour
(ShareCast News) - Were a 'disconnect' between resilient economic indicators and collapsing stockmarkets a reason to go 'contrarian' as an investor?
On Monday, UBS strategist Joao Toniato told investors he thought so, "but with caution".

That was because the European market had gone three-quarters of the way towards pricing in a recession, but with little indication so far that the economy was actually headed that way.

Indicators of value performance were seen as pointing to strong upside, Toniato said.

"From here we continue to focus on domestic sectors and move to apply a greater value tilt to our portfolio," he said.

As a result, the strategist upgraded his recommendation on the food retail sector from 'neutral' to 'overweight' and highlighted Tesco and Carrefour as his key 'buy' recommendations.

In parallel, he downgraded his view on consumer durables from 'overweight' to 'neutral' following the sector´s outperformance in 2015 and year-to-date.

The sector´s exposure to emerging markets and continued challenges in the region meant it was crucial to be more selective.

Toniato´s key 'sell' recommendation were: Salvatore Ferragamo and Prada, while his key 'buys' were: Burberry and LVMH.

As regarded banks, UBS said selling at then current levels did not seem justified given the long-term value it saw in the sector.

It was also too early to upgrade their view on commodities, given the risk that many 'value-traps' might be lingering.

In commodities, "remaining selective (and hence neutral) is key."

Nomura upgrades Burberry to 'buy' ahead of change

Fri, 26 February 2016

(ShareCast News) - Nomura upgraded Burberry to 'buy' from 'neutral' and lifted the price target to 1,500p from 1,450p.

It said since the company announced a review of the global market, its initiatives, efficiency programmes, productivity and capital allocation, expectations have risen in anticipation of change.

Nomura expects the review to be thorough given chief executive Christopher Bailey will have been at the helm for two years in May.

"A change of the group's approach would be a positive to the market. Despite a recent rebound in the stock, we see potential for a greater valuation if Burberry can successfully drive productivity measures, while being more disciplined on cost and capital allocation," the Japanese bank said.

Nomura said the company had five areas of focus: productivity, conversion, product, costs and capital allocation and share buybacks.

It said a focus on VIP/regular customers may be more effective than attempting to attract new customers.

It also said its product analysis suggests range overlap.

"Consolidating the sub-brands should drive better availability, an improved shopping experience and a more coherent product architecture," said Nomura.

It warned of a tough trading environment and the potential costs of implementing initiatives, but said it sees a favourable forex environment and initial benefits of cost initiatives offsetting in full year 2017.

In addition, Nomura said the stock's valuation appears attractive despite the lack of short-term growth.

It expects full year results on 18 May to be a catalyst.

Burberry Group plc (LON:BRBY) was upgraded by investment analysts at Nomura to a “buy” rating in a research note issued to investors on Friday, MarketBeat Ratings reports. The firm currently has a GBX 1,500 price target on the stock, up from their prior price target of GBX 1,450 .
Hugo Boss chief executive Claus-Dietrich Lahrs is stepping down after eight years leading the German fashion house.

The news follows this week's sharp fall in the company's share price prompted by a profit warning.

The company blamed weak sales in China and the United States for its warning that it expects sales to grow more slowly than its long-term forecast in 2016.

Market Report: Read-across from Hugo Boss weighs on Burberry

Luxury fashion house Burberry has posted its steepest two-day loss in five months after rival upmarket retailer Hugo Boss warned on profits.

On Tuesday, shares in Hugo Boss sank to their lowest level in five years after it revealed it would slash prices in Asia in a bid to revive weak sales.

It also said sales in the US so far this year have been lower than expected. The German fashion house now expects profit to fall at a low double-digit percentage rate.

In its wake, investors offloaded Burberry shares. In a bearish note, Liberum warned Burberry is “overly exposed to the Chinese consumer”, as the region accounts for 38pc of its sales, while 27pc of its sales come from the US. The broker highlighted that read-across from Hugo Boss is “unfavourable” for Burberry, reiterating its '“sell” recommendation.

Tom Gadsby, of Liberum, said: “We do not believe that the luxury goods model lends itself well to price cutting and promotion, rather brand value is driven by exclusivity engendered by high pricing.”

However, UBS sees “limited read-through” from Hugo Boss, as it believes price differentials are not as stretched as its rival.

Helen Brand, of UBS, said: “The brand already made some price adjustments in 2015.” Shares in Burberry have been battered by concerns about the health of the Chinese economy.

Since hitting a peak of £19.21 in February last year, the stock has plummeted 38.6pc. The FTSE 100 stock has plunged 109p, or 8.65pc, to £11.80 since Monday
