loganair: Income fund managers Clive Beagles and James Lowen have sold the last of their shares in Sainsbury's from their £3.7 billion JOHCM UK Equity Income fund and bought into supermarket rival Tesco. Beagles and Lowen have been reducing their stake in Sainsbury's since August, after their review of the supermarket's planned merger with Asda revealed more downside than expected to a rejection of the deal. In their latest update to investors, they said they had now sold the last of their shares in the supermarket. 'We have noted in the last few monthly reports that we had been reducing our position in Sainsbury’s,' they said. 'This was partly a function of its performance (after the step change up in the share price following the announcement of its proposed merger with Asda) and partly a function of lacklustre operational performance. We sold the residual position during October.' The managers have meanwhile started to build a position in the shares of rival Tesco, after a 20% slump in its shares around its first-half results last month. 'This created the opportunity to enter the stock on a valuation more in line with other parts of the fund,' they said. 'As well as the UK turnaround, the opportunity in the wholesale segment (after the acquisition of Booker), the joint purchasing arrangements with Carrefour and the strength of the balance sheet, which will likely lead to strong ordinary dividend growth and special dividends, are the key attractions.'

kpmgaccountant: Sainsbury business model going to be hammered by the news of Amazon Go. The hope of surviving via a merger is more out of hope and desperation than rationality. The future is bleak and the share price will be suitably hammered.

loganair: Income heavyweights trim Sainsbury's on merger risk: Managers of £3.8 billion JOHCM UK Equity Income fund trim holding in Sainsbury's on risk of regulators rejecting Asda merger. Clive Beagles and James Lowen have trimmed their JOHCM UK Equity Income fund's holding in Sainsbury's (SBRY) after a review of the supermarket's planned merger with Asda revealed more downside than expected to a rejection of the deal. Beagles and Lowen have been strong backers of the UK supermarket sector in their £3.8 billion fund, with 1.4% of their fund held in Sainsbury's and 0.8% in Morrisons at the end of June. But in their latest update to investors, they said they reduce their weighting to Sainsbury's, although they remain 'overweight' the stock, holding more than the market weighting. 'Further analysis highlighted more upside than we expected should the deal with Asda be cleared by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), but also more downside should it be rejected,' they said. 'Given the current ongoing sluggish relative performance of the Sainsbury's stand-alone business, and with the share price already up 40% year to date due to the Asda announcement, we took the opportunity to rebalance our weighting.' Plans for a sensational merger of Sainsbury's and Asda, the UK's second and third largest supermarkets, were announced in April. The merger is likely to be subjected to tough scrutiny from the CMA, given it would create the UK's largest retailer. Analysts believe the regulator's approval of Tesco's (TSCO) acquisition of convenience store operator Booker last year had emboldened Sainsbury's, although most predict it will need to sell off a large number of stores to gain approval. 'As the CMA decision is unlikely to be announced before April/May next year, we will continue to monitor the situation,' said Beagles and Lowen.

loganair: Supermarkets can stay hot stocks after heatwave by Danielle Levy: Supermarkets have been strong performers over the last year, with the summer heatwave providing the latest boost. The hot weather and England’s surprisingly lengthy run in the World Cup provided UK supermarkets with an unexpected boost. Nielsen, which records grocery food volumes, last week reported the strongest four-week sales volumes outside of Christmas and Easter across UK food retailers since July 2013. Meanwhile, Kantar Worldpanel reported 12-week supermarket sales growth of 3.6% to 15 July. ‘Just imagine the sales outcome if it wasn't for those pesky Croatians (not that we dislike Croats of course),’ noted Shore Capital analysts Clive Black and Darren Shirley. Both Kantar and Nielsen recorded strong sales growth for beef burgers, salads, pizza, beverage, sun care and painkillers, as revellers enjoyed the warm weather by hosting World Cup parties and barbecues. That has provided a further boost to the strong share price performance of supermarkets over the last year. Tesco is among the 10 best performing shares in the FTSE 100 over the last year, up 45% over the last 12 months as profits have surged and the supermarket has resumed dividend payments. Nor far behind is Sainsbury's, 30% higher as investors have cheered its sensational swoop on Asda. The FTSE 100 is up just 3% over the same period. Miton's Gervais Williams holds both across the funds he manages, which include the LF Miton UK Multi Cap Income fund, together with a stake in Morrisons. ‘We believe that irrespective of the hot weather, the underlying opportunities for like-for-like growth are there,’ he said. He acknowledges that the sector has been through a difficult period over the past three to five years. This has been marked by a price war caused by discounters Aldi and Lidl; over-capacity; as well as the devaluation of sterling following the Brexit vote, which resulted in higher food prices. After surviving this difficult period, Williams notes that supermarkets have narrowed product ranges to offer products at competitive prices. The sector has also benefited from more people eating in - a trend that the fund manager expects will continue, as consumers remain cautious about spending. With this in mind, he believes supermarkets can continue to perform well, even if economic conditions worsen. ‘Supermarkets are one of the safest areas to invest. In terms of fundamentals, they are delivering value, share prices are recovering, they are generating more cash, while dividends are growing nicely,’ he explained.

pj fozzie: TMWTPG, Your sage advice to urgently sell SBRY piqued my interest. Whenever I see advice like this, I like to look into the track record of the advisor and gain some insight into his/her wisdom. Your track record did not disappoint! (However, I would suggest you buy a new keyboard - clearly your CapsLock key has got stuck - and as a successful investor, a few quid for a new keyboard should be a drop in the ocean for you.) Now to your advice, I looked at your last five share tips - I'm afraid I'm too busy to go back further than that. Here is a summary: Date Share Price then Your advice Price now 16/01/18 XTR £0.03 STRONG BUY TARGET £0.09 £0.02 25/06/17 SKY £9.68 STRONG SELL TARGET £7.94 £13.77 25/06/17 SBRY £2.29 STRONG SELL TARGET £1.94 £3.04 23/06/17 BARC £1.97 STRONG SELL TARGET £1.52 £2.04 22/06/17 TSCO £1.68 STRONG SELL TARGET £1.44 £2.34 I must congratulate you on managing a 100% failure rate, it takes a special kind of talent to get it that wrong. Oh, and I understand now why you can't afford a new keyboard. Can I suggest that you put your money in a bank deposit account instead of buying shares - at least that way you wont be losing it. Kind regards, PJ

careful: what a load of old tosh. how can you analyse the SBRY share price with so many short positions open. over 10% on loan. i do not understand the logic of the shorters here. short at 400p ok that makes sense. ..but short at 270p is crazy. there must be better targets.

edmundshaw: Deal is worth over 160p even if you assume Sainsburys share price was fair at 240p. What? So Coupe accepts 240p as the new normal for SBRY share price? While accepting that 100p was a vastly depressed share price for HOME? Seems that "We will not overpay" is director code for "we are prepared to overpay substantially and screw out own shareholders". Must remember that for future reference :-(

loganair: Time to go shopping for Sainsbury’s? By Robert Sutherland Smith: Sainsbury at 253p after the interim results. The traditional quoted food retail sector is still undergoing a big change on an undetermined time scale. On that basis, Sainsbury shares may not look an obvious buy. However, I argue that the shares are attractive when the financial fundamentals are recognised. The shares, after the results of the first half of the current year, are priced at 253p and look pretty bombed out on those fundamentals. Our home grown food retailers (who of course sell more than food) have been in the grip of an insurmountable problem: losing market share to outside competitors who have been increasing their market share. Nothing can be more debilitating for a big business than the loss of scale and economic and financial benefits that come with scale of operations, whilst the competitive interlopers (in this case Lidl and Aldi, the Hengist and Horsa of UK retailing) are increasing and improving theirs. That is a bit like their fighting with one arm tied behind their back. The big question is how long it will take before the now more competitive sector settles down into a new equilibrium. No one knows and it is difficult to guess. Moreover, there are other threats to the current sector players – including the invaders. As our legacy retailers of staple products spot ‘on line’ shopping as a lower cost opportunity, internet operators like Amazon spot ‘on line’ sales of food stuff as a new market opportunity. We are clearly only part way through some pretty momentous changes in this sector; none of which are susceptible to clear visibility and easy prediction and certainly not credible forecasting. However, as always, there is the usual solution of some future consolidation amongst the retreating traditional players like Sainsbury, Tesco, Morrison and Waitrose etc. I suspect that will become a genuine prospect in due course, particularly if Amazon come into the food retailing business – taking even more British Exchequer tax revenue to other taxation jurisdictions no doubt. So, is there a case for buying UK food retailers and Sainsbury in particular? The elementary factors guiding us in answering such a question, include the following: that all companies in their activities are subject to degrees of uncertainty; share prices over time move to discount evolving news, facts and prospects; long term investors with wealth to preserve and hopefully grow, need a spread of investments and risk. That includes food retail shares of course. Coming to Sainsbury specifically, the best argument for investing money in it in comparison with other retail shares is that the share price is now discounting the difficulties. The share price last seen was 253p after the last interim results. About two years ago, the share price was over 400p. What does an investor now get for his or her money? First, a lot of sales revenue; on the basis of last year’s sales annual revenue at £23.5 billion on an equity capitalisation of £4.8 billion; put another way a share price of 253p buying historic sales revenue of an estimated 1,237p per share. Second, a very low price to book valuation. In fact the share price last seen stands at a 13% discount to balance sheet net assets in March. The market capitalisation of Sainsbury equity, currently standing at a value of £4.8 billion, commands an enterprise value which is three and a half times larger. In the balance sheet of 14th March last, total assets were stated as £16.5 billion. Also note that last year’s EBITD (basically profits before interest, taxation and depreciation are charged) amounted to £770 million putting Sainsbury shares on an EBITDA ratio of only 6.2 times on the basis of last year’s figures. Despite the gearing, interest costs were reportedly covered 6 times on an annual basis and 7.4 times on an interim basis. The shares price also stands at only 3.7 times last year’s annual cash and near cash held. Such valuations are strikingly low. Turning to the latest interim results, the disappointing news include the facts that the interim dividend was cut 20%; that there was a loss of market share and thinner margins; that sales fell 2%; and that underlying profits fell by 18%. The company is responding, we are told, by improving its own branded ‘taste the difference’ products, which, against the 2% fall in sales, actually grew by a reported 2% in volume terms. However, the incoming new CEO Mike Coupe talks of cutting costs according to a programme that seems ahead of schedule. The company is also increasing its convenience stores (very much the fashion in the sector) where sales have risen by a reported 11%, on the back of a one fifth increase in the number of such stores. Moreover, the retailer is developing its new Tu clothing offer – sales up 10% over the first half – as well as building its Sainsbury banking operation which is for the moment absorbing transformation cost. At a given point the bank should obviously be making a contribution to net profits. The market is estimating a 17% fall in earnings this year to earnings per share about 22p, putting the shares on a forward estimated price to earnings ratio of just over 11 times. The consensus estimate, at this juncture, is for a further 2% decline in earnings the year after that. Interestingly, it forecasts top line sales revenue for this year as being static at £23.75 billion and pretty close to that again in the following year at an estimated sales revenue figure of £23.52 million. In essence then, the market seems to be calculating that Sainsbury will hold its sales, with a well understood fall in earnings this year but holding on to most of those earnings the following year. The market consensus also estimates that the annual dividend will be reduced twenty per cent in line with the cut in the interim dividend. At the 10.5p dividend payout estimated for this year and next year the estimated annual dividend yield for this year and next is 4.4% p.a. As I always say on such occasions, I am no more gifted in seeing the future than the rest of humanity. However, as a compensation for that lack of prophetic vision, I can identify value in the here and now. Sainsbury at this level shows quite a lot of what we call fundamental value, as indicated above. With the share price at a discount to balance sheet net assets, investors now are arguably being asked to pay nothing for earnings. It will be interesting to see whether at this stage and at these levels of valuation, the bears will be tempted to fold up their short positions together with their tents. Sainsbury is reported to have been one of the most shorted shares in the market. Technically, the shares have been moving sideways for over a year in a trading range of roughly between 220p and 290p. Arguably, the share price looks as though it might have broken out of the earlier downtrend that took it into that range. Have a look and see if that is your interpretation.
