Morrisons: FTSE 100 retailer Morrisons also appears to offer long-term growth potential. The company’s recent update showed it’s making progress in growing its wholesale supply initiatives, as it seeks to reach £1bn in wholesale revenue. It’s also investing in its online growth potential through the expansion of its store on Amazon. The company is gradually reducing its debt levels as it seeks to de-risk its balance sheet during a period of intense competition and change for the wider retail sector. This may provide greater financial flexibility to invest in online growth opportunities, as well as enhance its appeal to a broad range of customers. Morrisons is seeking to expand its convenience store presence in order to increase the size of its potential customer base. This has the potential to boost its financial performance, with the company forecast to deliver a rise in earnings of 7% in the next financial year. Since it trades on a forward P/E ratio of 13.5, it seems to offer good value for money at the present time.

The difference is, this is just Aldi UK, which can afford to take on lower profits in order to take more market share from the other UK supermarkets while being supported by the rest of the Aldi group.

Found this intriguing in H1 results >> Financial targets update -- On track for GBP1bn annualised wholesale supply sales target -- Further GBP7m incremental profit from wholesale, services, interest and online, taking the total so far to GBP61m. On track for our GBP75m-GBP125m target >>> Even if Morrisons just hits the the low end of range, £75 million profit on £1 billion wholesale, the profit margin is.... drum roll.... 7.5%

It seems to me both Morrison's and Asda have a plan going forward whereas sadly Sainsbury's seem not to have plan rather they seem to be still trying to live off what they were in the past. Tesco's seem to be fine with just plodding a long, losing around another 1% plus in market share to Aldi/Lidl over the next 5 years, bringing them down to 26% or a little under. Kantar's fingers are incorrect as they do not included the 3.3% market share of M&S food. If one includes M&S then Tesco's market share falls by around 0.5% and for some reason Morrison's by 0.6% from those given by Kantar.

Looking forward 5 years I can see Aldi's market share being around 10.5%, Morrison 8.5% and Lidl 7%. Aldi said it would step up the pressure on rivals by increasing store numbers in London from 45 to 100 by the end of 2025. Aldi are also aiming to have 250 stores within the M25 area by 2025. How many supermarkets does Morrison's have in the London and within the M25 area?

Not holding atm, it's on a watchlist for me, thought near to £1.80 it may be worth a look?. loganair, you are making an assumption they want to return to that sector through store ownership. You might be right, or their focus may just be on wholesale supply agreements, without the extra 'risks' of ownership.

Any other suggestions of how Morrison's may get back into the convenience store market without to much head ache and without paying too high a price? Within less then 2 years Aldi will over take Morrison's market share which is likely to have fallen to around 9% by that time.

Morrison's lost a shed load of money as many of their convenience stores were ex-block buster stores which were in the wrong places, too small and with onerous leases which even after getting out of these stores Morrison's were left on the hook for. Where as over the past 4 years McColl's have been closing their newsagents and smaller unprofitable stores as their leases come up for renewal while buying larger profitable convenience stores.

MRW lost a shed load of money in that sector previously. Tesco are cutting staff and opening hours in their convenience outlets, online is increasingly eating in to that segment. I don't see the attraction myself, but let's see.

Morrison's are already trialing Morrison Daily convenience stores with McColl's Not really about extra space, more about getting back into the convenience store sector at not too much expense.

With their increasing business with Amazon I'm not sure they will go down that route. They are closing 4 supermarkets, so the focus looks on profitability not space.

When McColl's have closed most of their loss making newsagents and smaller stores, maybe a good idea for Morrison's to buy them out. McColl's have around 4% market share of the convenience store sector.

Yes I looked at their 12 months market share drop and referenced it recently as a reason to be a little cautious. MRW are not just a retailer, they are in the top 5 (from memory) food producers in the UK, plus the growing wholesale division. So it's perhaps a little easy to underestimate the complete business, however I would certainly not be gung ho on prospects.

Morrison's market share has dropped from 10.6% to 9.9% in just 15 months. I would think with in another 15 months Morrison's market share will be approaching 9%.
