I think with their underperformance of late without the merger we would be seeing big falls in the share price possibly under £2.

Following Sainsbury’s poor Christmas results, which saw like-for-like sales fall 1.1%, over the third quarter, retail analyst Clive Black of Shore Capital described the supermarket’s proposed merger with Walmart-owned Asda as “more critical than ever to Sainsbury’s medium-term prospects”.

I agree if Coupe does not get this deal through then his job could and should be at risk, he may be a good deal maker but he has very little idea how to run a Supermarket business, much of what customers liked about Sainsburys has now disappeared and there is little to tell them apart from the competition now. Anyone can cut costs the skill is to do it without impacting customers this has not been achieved imo.

I do agree with the article - who is going to buy any of the sometimes massive stores that Sainsburys/Asda will be required to divest themselves of. In many cases I don't think they could even give them away for Free and will just have to close them while carrying on paying their leases and rents.

Like many of Sainsbury loyal customers I don't mind paying a bit more but what I do expect is good availability, short waits at checkouts and reasonable standards in store.I might as well just shop at the cheapest if they fail in these areas.They will never beat the discounters on price so they should focus on what they can beat them at.

As other posters have mentioned, Sainsbury's needs to get the basics right as it us to 20 years ago. "Secondly, we have seen a marked step down in store standards in Sainsbury's, on this very service and this has continued with top stocking also variable in terms of its implementation. For the good stores, it works well. For the bad stores, then it's another issue and well, the impact is then taken out to the shop floor for all customer to see." "You can go so far with making stores look 'shopped' and not necessarily tidying as often, but there is a tipping point. For a business that has built its reputation on better, more consistent standards than its rivals - it seems an odd strategy." "It's hard work to save money from the wider operation, especially for Sainsbury's who have banked numerous savings from their sterling work in the past. They've almost 'run out of road' before really starting to cut in to things that will ultimately lead to customer impact."

Interesting analysis of Sainsburrys and some of their recent instore issues. A fair and balanced report that is bang on the money imo. Https://mailchi.mp/groceryinsight.com/sainsburys2017xmas

Yes, strange how the shares are up. Maybe the market was expecting much worse or maybe some bottom fishers have been panicked into the stock? I do it myself sometimes on fear of missing out etc. Will be interesting to see if today's gain holds over the next week or so.

There have been many examples of investors being wiped out or suffering very very poor long term returns, when companies have high net liabilities in relation to profits or free cash flow. As an investor you have a choice whether or not to avoid such companies. In the case of Sainsbury, no-one can know in advance what will happen in the future. They may well be fine, but no-one really knows. So why take the risk when you don't have to ?

Nothing to set the world on fire. I wonder how sensitive in the short term that debt is to rate movements? Positions at breakeven for me at this level.

So yes, Supermarket continues to stagger along while convenience and online grow well. That's the picture that's not going to change much as shopping habits change. ASDA merger, IMO, will help Argos a lot - if it goes ahead. Everything points to that being positive for Argos. In the meantime, maybe some of the standalone Argos stores were closed too soon? Not all bad news, but they obviously need to up their game re supermarkets - empty shelves; broken down and closed-off bogs, and just in need of inspiration to differentiate them positively. I'm sure that some stores are better managed than others, but they need to be on top of the badly managed ones and not merely concentrate on cost-cutting - as has been said. Debt isn't too high, and they expect that to come down by £100m by next Finals to some £1264m. I once looked upon this as eventually becoming a cash cow - some years ago. Could yet be achieved, but that particular horizon's looking a long way off.

The analogy I make for Coupe is he is a First World War General fighting the Second World War with First World War tatics. In other words Coupe had the ability to take on the likes of Tesco and Morrison which is the past sadly however going forward he hasn't a clue how to take on the likes of Aldi and Lidl.

As a very good retail manager once told me get the basics right first, serve customers fast and have your products available for them to buy. My experience is they are not getting this right with long queues and empty shelves to common.

'Santa didn't stop for woeful Sainsbury's,' said Markets.com analyst Neil Wilson. 'This was a truly woeful set of numbers. Customers are cautious but Sainsbury's should be doing better. At a time of gently rising inflation and improving real wages Sainsbury's ought to be enjoying growth in group sales,' he said. Wilson said: 'Overall, clearly the discounters Aldi and Lidl are having a big impact, but with the exception of a mega tie-up with Asda it's hard to see what Sainsbury's is doing to combat them effectively.' "Sainsbury’s did well when Tesco was facing problems and Morrisons was a long way short of where it is now. Both of those have undergone impressive turnarounds – the question is whether Sainsbury’s faces up to the fact that in core grocery at least it too needs to turn the ship around. "At present it’s putting all it eggs in one basket with the planned Asda merger, but if that fails where does it leave the business?" According to Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor, Sainsbury results are 'less punchy than expected', but 'all is not lost'. He said: 'The increasingly important channels of online and convenience continue to post strong sales growth of 6 per cent and 3 per cent respectively, whilst the group's planned cost savings of £200million remain on track.'

Its Tu clothing sales slipped 0.2 per cent, which Sainsbury's boss Mike Coupe said was a strong performance in a 'tough market'. That's rubbish - I buy my sons every day run around cloths from TU, however this year their range was so poor that I haven't bought any TU clothing for my son. Again the management and Coupe have got it wrong with extremely poor management decisions.

Anyone can cut costs the skill is to do it without affecting sales, does not look like he is achieving that to me.
