loganair: Sainsbury’s moving up a gear, says AJ Bell: Strong Christmas sales from Sainsbury’s (SBRY) show the supermarket is ‘moving up a gear’ and accelerating growth, says AJ Bell. The supermarket reported a 9.3% rise in like-for-like Christmas sales, with third quarter sales up 8.6%. Russ Mould, head of investment at AJ Bell, said sales of the group’s Taste the Difference premium range showed ‘the supermarket game isn’t always about having the cheapest possible price’. It has also seen success with Argos, which benefited from the ‘digital Christmas’ caused by the pandemic, he added. ‘After years of struggling and trying to work out ways to accelerate growth, Sainsbury’s finally looks like it has moved up a gear,’ said Mould. ‘New chief executive Simon Roberts is off to a great start, although there still remain numerous pressures on the business, such as being able to satisfy ferocious demand for online delivery slots, dealing with supply chain disruptions, and never taking [its] eye off the grocery competition.’ The shares were trading up 5.2%, or 12.1p, at 245p at time of writing yesterday.
spob: Tesco to pay back £585m of Covid business rates relief Supermarket says it is ‘conscious of our responsibilities to society’ Opinion: where Tesco leads on rates relief others should follow Mark Sweney The Guardian 2 Dec 2020 Tesco is to pay back the £585m in business rates relief accepted from the UK government to help the supermarket weather the coronavirus pandemic, months after paying investors hundreds of millions in dividends after sales soared. Tesco, which said “every penny” of the rates relief had been spent on responding to the pandemic, added that in making the repayment it was “conscious of our responsibilities to society”. In total, the big six supermarkets – Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrison, Aldi and Lidl – will save £1.9bn in bills during the tax year to 31 March 2021, according to figures from Altus Group, a property adviser. Tesco, which defended its decision to pay a £315m dividend to shareholders in October, is to pay back the rates relief and its move ramps up pressure on rivals to follow suit. “The board has agreed unanimously that we should repay the rates relief we have received,” said John Allan, the chairman of Tesco. “We are financially strong enough to be able to return this to the public and we are conscious of our responsibilities to society. We firmly believe now that this is the right thing to do and we hope this will enable additional support to those businesses and communities who need it.” The big supermarkets have been heavily criticised for taking the payouts over concerns that taxpayer money could have been directed to sectors that really needed the financial support. Tesco maintains that the government made the right decision to step in with the support at the beginning of the pandemic, when supermarkets faced being overwhelmed logistically as shoppers started panic-buying, supply lines were stretched to breaking point and there was the possibility of mass absenteeism. “[There was a] real and immediate risk to the ability of supermarkets to feed the nation,” the company said. “We are immensely grateful for the financial and policy support provided to us by the governments of the UK. This was a gamechanger and allowed us to ensure customers got access to the essentials they needed.” Tesco said costs relating to the pandemic are estimated to hit £725m this year but paying back the rates relief is the corporately responsible thing to do. “While business rates relief was a critical support at a time of significant uncertainty, some of the potential risks we faced are now behind us,” said Ken Murphy, Tesco’s chief executive. “Every decision we’ve taken through the crisis has been guided by our values and a commitment to playing our part. In that same spirit, giving this money back to the public is absolutely the right thing to do by our customers, colleagues and all of our stakeholders.” Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons have paid dividends to shareholders even while receiving the state aid. Sainsbury’s disclosed business rates relief worth £230m in the first half of its financial year, while paying £231m in dividends. The government introduced a 12-month break on business rates in March across England and Wales because it feared the pandemic would strain retailers’ finances, potentially threatening their ability to feed the country. However, the reality proved very different, with big supermarkets enjoying a sales boost, albeit with higher costs. Altus’s projections showed that Tesco, the UK’s largest supermarket chain, is expected to receive relief worth £585m during the year, while Sainsbury’s will receive £498m. Asda and Morrisons will receive £297m and £279m respectively.
unastubbs: rns from tesco, they will repay business rates relief. sbry must surely follow. will they pull the dividend??
pierre oreilly: Of course the share will be marked down by the divi amount first thing tomorrow - but i'm expecting it to soon regain that 10p, just to get back on the same p/e as now. The xd date is when you qualify for the divi, on or after xd (i.e. xd = without dividend) you don't qualify. The record date is when the register is read and determines where the divis are sent. For those in before opening on xd day and not yet in the shareholders register on the record date, (and vv) the divis get sent to the wrong place, and the brokers sort it out, ensuring those who qualify get them, and those who don't don't. I recently bought due to the far better trading than i was expecting, and nudged along by th lumped together interim plus last years final.
paulo435: Yes dividend buying likely going on, but also there’s heavy lobbying for extended opening hours in the run up to Xmas. Anyone know why the ex dividend date is declared as being tomorrow the 12th, but yet in the recent results announcement the special dividend is being paid to those on the register of members as at close of play on the 13th. Wondering if holders need to stay until 13th for this, not the 12th, unless the register is based on data from the 12th. Either way, I’m curious to see if this price drops significantly or not after these dates and if the dividend milkers have upped and left. 5%+ dip to come do we think ? (All other things being equal)
loganair: Sainsbury's is tipped to restart dividend payments this week despite a row over it receiving a huge tax break and a second national lockdown. City analysts said they expect the supermarket to give the green light to dividends again – with analysts at Barclays pencilling in a £220 million payout to shareholders. That assumes the chain pays both a dividend for the past six months and a 'catch-up' for a payout it postponed earlier this year. Shore Capital analyst Clive Black believes Sainsbury's will resume dividends. He said: 'Retail investors and pensioners who have no interest coming in from their savings have seen dividends from banking, insurance and oil dry up and are increasingly looking to supermarkets as a source of income.' Black said payouts were justified because supermarkets had invested in adapting stores for social distancing and hadn't furloughed employees. Sainsbury's, which owns Argos, is expected to report a 15 per cent rise in retail profits.
