Looking through Sainsbury’s business, it has solid earnings, a decent cash cycle and is deleveraging their balance sheet. But there are setbacks, that includes Growing operating lease; Higher rental expenses as % of sales; Negative cumulative free cash flow since 2006. Overall the shares are fairly valued. With the rise of Aldi and Lidl, Sainsbury’s has maintained their market share and regained their second spot from Asda. But, with Aldi and Lidl, expected to gain a further 9% to 13% of the UK Grocery market in the next decade, would Sainsbury continue to survive?

Likewise. FWIW.Next time these reach the late 200's, i'll seriously consider ditching them.Given how poorly Shareholders are treated, these might as well be sold off and run by the state!

count them? The curse of "despite" Despite .... "Sainsbury's delivered a super start to its financial year as grocery sales growth accelerated and general merchandise, including Argos, outperformed the market." .... The share price could not make a dent in the 10% it lost in the last month ?

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."

Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s could sign £2bn deal to supply newsagent chain McColl’s as grocers continue fighting to secure their futures Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s could sign a £2bn deal to supply newsagent chain McColl’s as grocers continue fighting to secure their futures. The pair are said to be discussing a deal which would see Sainsbury’s flog its products to McColl’s 1,400 stores. Sources hinted an even wider proposal might be on the table, and McColl’s has previously been discussed in City circles as a possible takeover target. Expansion plans: The pair are said to be discussing a deal which would see Sainsbury’s flog its products to McColl’s 1,400 stores It raises questions about a separate Sainsbury’s plan to buy convenience firm Nisa for a reported £130m. Nisa currently has a five-year contract to supply McColl’s with up to £500m of goods every year – a deal which accounts for around 40 per cent of the former’s £1.2bn revenue. But this partnership is about to end, meaning a rival could swoop in. It was allegedly discovered by Sainsbury’s while the supermarket chain was analysing Nisa. The tie-up talk comes as grocers battle German discounters and American tech giants.

Sainsbury Should Leave Nisa on the Shelf By Andrea Felsted When Tesco Plc launched its Clubcard loyalty scheme in 1995, Lord Sainsbury disparaged it as an electronic version of Green Shield Stamps, a reference to an outdated British promotional program. Yet not too many years after, J Sainsbury Plc itself had joined Nectar, another shopper-loyalty plan. Fast forward more than a decade, and a similar effort to keep up with the Joneses is being played out between the two archenemies. This time, it's not in the sphere of customer loyalty, but food wholesale. Supermarket Sweep Britain's grocers are looking for new avenues of growth. Tesco in January stunned markets with its 3.3 billion pound ($4.3 billion) bid for cash-and-carry operator Booker Group Plc. Now, Sainsbury is in talks to acquire Nisa Retail Ltd., a company which like Booker supplies individual shop owners. Nisa also has a contract with McColl's Retail Group Plc, the publicly traded newsagent, and Sainsbury could potentially take on this arrangement itself, or even look to acquire McColl's, the Mail on Sunday reported over the weekend, citing people it didn't identify. Good News But this is one copycat deal that Sainsbury should leave on the shelf. The mooted price for Nisa -- 130 million pounds -- is a drop in the bucket for Sainsbury, which has a market capitalization approaching 5.5 billion pounds. And it's true a tie-up would have some merit. Adding Nisa, which generated about 1.3 billion pounds in sales in the year to April 2017, would boost Sainsbury's buying scale. Tesco will gain 5 billion pounds of revenue from Booker, and so Sainsbury would be bolstering its defenses against a more muscular competitor. Sainsbury has also made no secret of the fact that it would be interested in a franchise model for its convenience store arm. That would help expand sales without requiring significant capital expenditure. Finally, Tesco has sparked a shake-up in the wholesale market. Distributor Palmer & Harvey Holdings Plc is up for sale, according to Sky News, and rival suppliers Costcutter Holdings Ltd. and The Spar Group Ltd. may decide they need to take part in the industry consolidation, too. With the big supermarkets on one side of the dance floor, and the wholesale groups on the other, it's understandable that Sainsbury wants to make sure it gets a desirable partner. But with Nisa, the risks outweigh the benefits. Sainsbury CEO Mike Coupe was the one who actually kicked off the supermarket spending spree, acquiring the Argos general-merchandise chain last year for more than 1 billion pounds. Despite skepticism about the deal -- including from Gadfly -- Sainsbury seems to be making a pretty good fist of it. Trading Places Shareholders are warming to Sainsbury's Argos deal, and going cold on Tesco Booker. Argos's sales have been better than expected, and Coupe will give a further update when Sainsbury reports first-quarter sales Tuesday. Sainsbury, which has done a decent job developing its own clothing and home-furnishings offering, has also been quietly revamping Argos's product range. It's taking the retailer's flat-pack furniture and cheap jewelry upmarket in an effort to tempt Sainsbury's more affluent customers away from middle England's favorite shop John Lewis. Coupe should stick with this strategy, and not be distracted by Nisa. Those distractions could be manifold. Nisa is owned by its independent shopkeeper members, and they've already rejected bids from Costcutter twice in 2006 and 2009. As with Tesco's purchase of Booker, there might also be some competition concerns, particularly if Sainsbury's interest was to extend beyond Nisa to McColl's. That's another headache Coupe could do without. Britain's supermarkets are all scrambling to find new avenues of growth amid the twin threats from Germany's no-frills operators and Amazon.com Inc. But Sainsbury trying to break into the wholesale food market looks more like a dead end than a winning strategy.

Nisa takeover: Biggest customer McColl's holds own talks with Sainsbury's by Alys Key. Convenience chain McColl's has entered the fray in the battle of the supermarkets, holding its own meetings with Sainsbury's as the supermarket giant attempts to buy Nisa. Senior executives from McColl's, which is supplied by Nisa, met with Sainsbury's officials on Friday to discuss the potential deal. McColl's currently accounts for almost 40 per cent of Nisa's sales, but could wrap up its contract with the mutual group and strike a new one with Sainsbury's or another big player like the Co-Operative. Nisa has multiple contracts with McColl's, one of which ends as early as next year, while others run through to 2020. A new supply deal between Sainsbury's and McColl's could be worth up to £2bn. Although McColl's is Nisa's largest customer, the £130m offer tabled by Sainsbury's is not thought to be dependent on a continuing contract with McColl's. But some observers have questioned whether the price tag for Nisa could be considered too steep without the income from McColl's. The news comes off the back of suggestions by City analysts that McColl's could be another target for acquisition as supermarkets battle to gain control of convenience stores. Nisa became an attractive prospect after the Booker merger with Tesco prompted rivals to consider other ways to control the supply chain. This week the member-owned organisation unveiled that a turnaround plan delivered profit of £2.8m for the year to April 2017, compared to a loss of £5.4m in the same period last year. Meanwhile Sainsbury's will hold its AGM this Wednesday amid calls from Pensions and Investment Research Consultants (PIRC) for shareholders to oppose the company's remuneration policy saying the potential for executive pay to reach 500 per cent of salary was "excessive". A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: “We consult with shareholders on a regular basis and are confident that our remuneration policy is appropriately set and encourages long-term shareholder value creation.” In a report released ahead of the AGM, PIRC also advised voting against the re-election of chairman David Tyler on the grounds that he is also chairman of Hammerson and "should focus his attention onto only one FTSE 350 company."

Sainsbury’s to report recovery thanks to Argos gains and inflation By Noor Nanji. SAINSBURY’S is expected to report a sales recovery when it announces first quarter results this week, helped by rising shop price inflation and a continued strong performance at Argos. The supermarket giant is tipped by City analysts to report a 2 per cent rise in like-for-like sales over the period, a significant improvement on the last quarter’s 0.3 per cent. Overall sales are expected to be boosted by a further rise in inflation and a strong performance in non-food categories, as well as growth at Argos. James Grzinic, analyst at Jefferies, said the performance will be boosted by “recovering supermarket like-for-like sales, albeit with growing inflation masking soft food volume performance, and solid Argos gains”. The pound’s collapse following the Brexit vote has driven up inflation which, in moderation, can help supermarkets boost their sales and profit margins. However, it can also drive shoppers to seek out bargain alternatives as rising costs are passed on to consumers. In May, the Big Four chain warned over a hit from falling consumer confidence as price hikes start to bite after it suffered its third straight year of falling profits. Sainsbury’s said the squeeze on household spending was impacting general merchandise and clothing sales growth. This was only partly offset by a £77million boost from the recently bought Argos chain, snapped up last year when it took over Home Retail Group for £1.4billion. Sainsbury’s is forecasting cost price inflation of 2 per cent to 3 per cent over the financial year, which is providing a welcome fillip for underpressure food sales. First-quarter results will combine the numbers for Argos and Sainbury’s for the first time since the acquisition last year. Although no split for Argos will be provided this time around, Barclays analysts expect like-for-like sales growth at the chain to track in line with the two prior quarters, at around 4 per cent. With the Argos acquisition secured, Sainsbury is continuing to look for brands to add to its shopping basket. It is understood the group is now looking to buy Nisa, the network of more than 2,500 independently owned convenience stores, in a deal worth close to £130million – as part of a response to Tesco’s £3.7billion merger with wholesaler Booker.

Telegraph - McColls plays kingmaker in Sainsbury's Nisa takeover A Nisa source said that Sainsbury’s takeover bid was not conditional on McColl’s contract. Industry sources nevertheless questioned whether Sainsbury’s would be willing to pay £130m if 40pc of sales disappear. Nisa granted exclusivity to Sainsbury's last week after believing that the supermarket offered its members more cash upfront than rival approaches from the Co-operative or wholesaler Bestway. McColls itself is viewed as a potential takeover target as supermarkets jockey for position in the convenience market following Tesco’s £3.7bn bid for Booker. Analysts at Peel Hunt have said the newsagent could be “irresistable” to Sainsbury’s or Morrisons. Industry sources are sceptical on whether Sainsbury's takeover of Nisa will succeed because of the latter's complicated ownership structure. Around 1,400 shopkeepers, many of which are fiercely independent, are members of the chain and will have a vote on any deal. I mentioned over a year ago when Sainsbury's where making their bid for Argos that McColl's will be a good fit for Sainsburys and I thought they would make a bif for McColl's.
