Asda has revealed a lacklustre set of full-year figures for 2016, as profits collapsed and the supermarket failed to stem falling sales. The Walmart-owned company’s like-for-like sales were down 5.7 per cent in 2016 compared with a year earlier, while profits sank 19 per cent to £791.7m, annual accounts filed at Companies House show. Asda also reported an operating cashflow of £1.41bn, an increase of 8%, and said a dividend of £450m was paid to Walmart. Low-cost Asda has been hit hardest by the rise of discount rivals Aldi and Lidl, and has also failed to make headway into the convenience sector, which has grown strongly as large-store sales have stalled. While shoppers can buy Asda food over the internet, the supermarket has been hit harder than most because it refuses to join rivals in opening smaller stores. Asda again has been affected more than the others because its biggest point of difference was price, something that has been cannibalised in recent years with the low-cost operators. Asda has been too slow in responding to that competition, at a time when its arch rival Tesco has managed to turn its business around. As a result, the supermarket chain has reported 11 consecutive quarterly falls in sales. Asda’s market share fell 0.9 per cent to 15.7 per cent in 2016, according to data company Kantar. Last August, Asda posted its worst ever quarterly sales fall of 7.5 per cent. While for a time all the so-called "big four" grocers were shedding customers - and Tesco and Morrisons were suffering some self-inflicted wounds - only Asda appears not to have turned a corner. "Asda’s 'we’re the cheapest schtick' started to fail when Aldi and Lidl reached critical mass and people woke up to the fact that they’re cheaper still," says James Moore. Tom Berry, retail analyst at GlobalData, said: "Asda has chosen to focus on price rather than range and in-store experience, which has clearly been the wrong strategy. "Asda has been flailing without direction for too long, and a comprehensive plan is needed if it is to survive in the highly competitive UK grocery market." Retail Remedy's Phil Dorrell, a former marketing chief at Asda, added: "It is not changing significantly or fast enough to pull around the results. It did not get its proposition right." The grocer had reportedly been lining up a £4bn+ bid for successful non-food retailer B&M, but Moore says that is now looking less likely after the discount store announced it had its own acquisition: the £152m buyout of Heron Foods. That has moved B&M into food retail - and " leaves Asda furiously cutting prices in an attempt to compete".

Some strength here the last few days although it seems to be across the sector.

Income investors frustrated by the low rates of interest have had to look elsewhere for alternative sources of yield. The ideal investment for anyone in this position would be a relatively low risk fund that pays a reliable inflation-linked income like a property or infrastructure investment trust, but most of these vehicles are now trading at a significant premium to their net asset value (NAV). A new investment trust has recently floated on the London Stock Exchange that ticks all the right boxes and it is still trading close to its NAV. The Supermarket Income REIT (LON:SUPR) will invest in a portfolio of supermarket real-estate assets. Its tenants will mainly be the four largest supermarkets and these will provide the fund with a secure, long-term source of inflation-linked income.

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."
