spob: Actually most people did think it would go through. (myself not included) Which is why the share price shot up and stayed over valued for a long time Mr Coupe was singing about his share options when the share price jumped 22% in one day " Sainsburys are a big company, so they must know what they are doing " LOL people are so easily swayed by money/size

loganair: If Sainsbury's had taken over Asda and as predicted the Sainsbury's share price would have risen to somewhere near 400p and I would have been out and put my money else where as it seems to me that would have been as good as it gets, share pricewise. Sadly I was away when the share price rose to around 340p so am still holding and will be looking to buy more when the share price goes sub 150p, giving a yield of 7.3%. Without such a yield I think Sainsbury's is not attractive or worth buying into. I have been posting for the past 3 years that I think the combined market share of Aldi/Lidl will stabilize when it gets to around 18%, which is 4.1% higher than it is today.

loganair: Is now the time to invest in Sainsbury’s shares? After its failed merger attempt with Asda, supermarket chain J Sainsbury has been having a tough year. In the last 12 months its share price has dropped by almost 40%, and the company has been weighed by the uncertainty surrounding Brexit – food supply disruptions an on-going threat for the company depending on the exact terms of the deal (or indeed no-deal). It may surprise you to hear that I think Sainsbury’s may be an investment worth considering. Cheap returns: Firstly, Sainsbury’s shares are currently offering a dividend yield of about 5.5%, far outweighing the numbers of its listed rivals Tesco and WM Morrison, which return 2.6% and 3.3% respectively. Furthermore, the share price declines of the last 12 months now make the stock cheap, with a P/E ratio of just 9, again beating Tesco and Morrison’s that both have P/E numbers in the 13-14 range. The other number I analysed recently that cannot help but make me think Sainsbury’s shares are currently oversold is the company’s book value. Effectively measuring how much the company is worth if it were wound down right now, Sainsbury’s figure comes in at about £3.80 per share – far above today’s current price of £1.97. Again compared to Tesco and Morrison’s, this number offers both the largest value and is the only one of the three above the current share price. Tesco’s book value is about £1.50 per share compared to the current £2.20 stock price, while Morrison’s is £1.80 vs. a £1.95 share price. Some concern: This isn’t to say there is nothing to be concerned about however. My main concern is due to the broad moves the world has seen in recent years away from bricks-and-mortar stores to the world of online retail. Consumers are becoming ever more tech-savvy, and the convenience of smartphones, tablets and universal broadband continue to boost online retail. Sainsbury’s, while perhaps not part of a dying industry, is certainly a key player in one that needs to adapt. On the plus side though, all the signs are that the company is attempting to do this. Recently rumours emerged that talks may be underway with Uber Eats regarding a partnership for grocery delivery services, while the company is already participating in a two-month trial with Deliveroo, to test the viability of delivering freshly-baked pizzas. Meanwhile, away from its core grocery ops, sales in other areas of its business have been under pressure of late, Sainsbury’s reporting earlier this month that for the 16 weeks to the end of June, clothing sales were down 4.5% while general merchandise sales were down 3.1%. It should be noted though that these are both areas very susceptible to the weather — unsurprisingly fewer shorts, T-shirts and sun loungers are sold in bad weather. I think it is fair to say Sainsbury’s shares may not be the surest investment I have ever talked about, and it is perfectly possible that the shares will fall lower before reaching what I think is their true value. That said, I think even with concerns surrounding the future of high street retail, Sainsbury’s shares may just be worth investing in for those who can hold them for the long term.

loganair: By Robert Stephens Equity Analyst - Following news that the merger between Asda and J Sainsbury was not going to be allowed on competition grounds, the share price of the latter has fallen significantly. In fact, in the last year the company’s shares are down by 36%. This has pushed them to their lowest level in over 25 years. In the short run, it wouldn’t surprise me if the company and peers such as Tesco and WM Morrison Supermarkets see their share prices come under a degree of pressure. Consumer confidence in the UK is weak at the moment, and this may make shoppers more price conscious than they otherwise would be. However, with wage growth being ahead of inflation, I remain relatively optimistic about the long-term prospects for the wider retail industry. Therefore, I believe that Sainsbury’s P/E ratio of around 9.5 suggests that it could offer good value for money at this moment in time. It’s a lower rating than Tesco’s 14 and Morrisons’ P/E ratio of 14.5. However, it should be pointed out that both of those companies have stronger EPS forecasts than Sainsbury’s for the current year, with them being 20% and 10% respectively versus a figure of just 4% for Sainsbury’s. As a result, I think all three supermarkets have long-term investment appeal. Although they may experience challenges as the retail sector transitions towards an increasingly online focus, which may suit sector peer Ocado Group to a greater extent, I’m of the view that they have sound strategies through which to generate improving sales. Further, Sainsbury’s remains highly profitable. Ocado may be able to deliver higher sales growth, and could post stronger capital gains in the near term, but its lack of profitability remains a risk in my eyes. Sure, I’m optimistic about the online-focused company. But, equally, I think that the Sainsbury’s share price could offer investment appeal due to what I view as a low valuation and a strategy that focuses on differentiation and customer loyalty. While further volatility may be ahead for the retail sector, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is capital growth potential on offer over an extended time period.

the grumpy old men: invezz Sainsbury’s share price: Analysts weigh in on Q1 results Tsveta Zikolova Tsveta Zikolova July 4, 2019 2 min read Share this article! Hargreaves Lansdown reckons that the real challenges for J Sainsbury (LON:SBRY) are coming from the industry, Citywire reports. The comments came as the blue-chip grocer updated investors on its first-quarter performance yesterday, posting a fall in sales and cautioning that retail markets remained “highly competitive and promotional and the consumer outlook continues to be uncertain”. Sainsbury’s share price fell in the previous session, giving up 0.53 percent to close at 198.45p. The stock underperformed the broader UK market, with the benchmark FTSE 100 index extending its rally and adding 0.66 percent to 7,609.32 points. This morning, the grocer’s shares have gained ground, having climbed 1.59 percent to 201.60p as of 08:18 BST, as compared with a flat Footsie. Sainsbury’s faces industry challenges Citywire quoted Hargreaves Lansdown analyst Sophie Lund-Yates as commenting yesterday that the latest dip in Sainsbury’s sales was not ‘a complete surprise,’ pointing to tough comparisons with the prior year’s figures, when the royal wedding boosted sales. “Looking ahead, the group said conditions are set to remain uncertain,” she said, adding that the supermarket sector was “still seeing competitive pressure, meaning the likes of Sainsbury’s are being forced to push prices down across core products”. “So, while last year’s strong performance makes this trading update harder reading, the real challenges are coming from the wider industry,” the analyst concluded. Other analysts on blue-chip grocer The BBC meanwhile quoted Thomas Brereton, retail analyst at GlobalData, as commenting that the price cuts showed that Sainsbury’s was ‘trying to compete,’ while cautioning that “its more premium image means it will continue to stumble if it tries to overcome its competitors on price”. Shore Capital reaffirmed the blue-chip supermarket as a ‘sell’ yesterday, without specifying a target on the Sainsbury’s share price. According to MarketBeat, the FFTSE 100 group currently has a consensus ‘hold’ rating and an average valuation of 236.60p.

loganair: Never mind Tesco, is the Sainsbury’s share price the one to buy now? The J Sainsbury share price is down 35% over the past 12 months, exacerbated by the failure of the planned merger with Asda. It’s a very competitive environment, and without the claimed economies of scale that a mega-merger could possibly achieve, it’s difficult for Sainsbury to compete with the onslaught of Aldi and Lidl on top of the UK’s already squeezed marketplace. The slightly upmarket appeal of Sainsbury appears to have largely evaporated these days, and I don’t know how it’s going to differentiate itself in now that it’s all down to price, price, price. Bank? Actually, one possible approach is to provide more in-store services, as I was reminded on Tuesday when I read of the appointment of Jim Brown as the new CEO of Sainsbury’s Bank. There’s nothing earth-shattering in that, but then I think back to Tesco and its diversification into banking and things like that leading up to its over-stretching crisis. Sainsbury’s Bank seems to doing reasonably well, though operating profit from the company’s financial services (including Argos Financial Services) dropped to £31m in the 2018-19 year. To put that into some perspective, RBS reported operating profit of £1bn in its first quarter this year. And Sainsbury’s itself recorded a retail operating profit of £692m in the year just ended. It’s only a few weeks ago that Tesco told us it was quitting mortgage lending, and was considering ways to dispose of the business entirely. As Kevin Godbold put it, “providing mortgages looks like another commodity-style pursuit with precious little to differentiate between one provider’s offering and another’s.R21; No differentiation: When the main service a company is providing is a non-differentiated commodity, I don’t think adding more non-differentiated commodities is really providing much of a competitive advantage. We already have a very effective and efficient one-stop shop for all our run-of-the-mill stuff — it’s called the internet. No, it seems to me that for a supermarket to compete, it increasingly needs to do so on price, so how do Sainsbury’s and Tesco shape up on that score? I know some of my colleagues are seeing Tesco at least as an attractive long-term buy at the moment. Looking at current forecasts for it, predicted EPS rises would drop the forward P/E to only around 12 by 2021, and the dividend would be up to a yield of 3.9%. And I’ll admit that looks like a tempting valuation right now. And a look at Sainsbury’s shows a valuation that, on the face of it, looks even more attractive. Here we’re talking about an even lower 2021 P/E of 11, with a dividend yield of 4.6%. Further ahead: But I think we need to look to the greater future here, and I reckon Edward Sheldon has picked up on that very well. He points out that consumer data experts Kantar Worldpanel saw no growth from Tesco or Sainsbury in the 12 weeks to 19 May. And that’s during a period when Lidl sales grew by 11.1% while Aldi recorded an 8.5% jump. City analysts might be predicting decent growth for both over the next few years, but I don’t yet see where it’s coming from. In fact, I can see all of our big supermarkets experiencing a tighter and tighter competitive squeeze. And that, to me, is not an enticing prospect for my retirement investments.

loganair: Could the Sainsbury’s share price ruin your Stocks and Shares ISA? by Andy Ross: From the infamous moment that J Sainsbury (LON: SBRY) boss Mike Coupe was caught singing “we’re in the money ” while waiting for a TV interview, his goal of merging the supermarket he runs with Walmart-owned Asda seemed to start slipping from his grasp. And so it has proved with the Competition and Markets Authority blocking the deal on the grounds of reduced customer choice and likely higher prices. With the merger having been called off, what shape is Sainsbury’s now in as a business and investment prospect? Could it drive your Stocks and Shares ISA to new heights or leave it generating even lower returns than a Cash ISA? The results paint a picture: The simple answer to that question is: not good. The full-year results showed that despite acquiring Argos in 2016, the group only just managed to increase its overall sales by a fairly measly 2.1%. But the bigger problem was the falls in profit before tax and earnings per share. The former fell by a massive 29%, the latter by 32%. The results paint a pretty bleak picture to me of a company that is in poor shape and was desperate to acquire growth and market share through a major acquisition or merger. That is not a recipe anyone should embrace. Indeed, rightly or wrongly, it reminds me of the desperate antics of Carillion trying to buy Balfour Beatty not that long before it collapsed. I’m not saying the same thing will happen at Sainsbury’s, but the company does have some parallels – huge debt, reliance on acquisitions for growth and a high and growing dividend despite a poorly performing business. Debt: Addressing debt first of all, it is seven times greater than pre-tax profit which for me is uncomfortably high. Management recognises the issue and has an aim of reducing debt by £600m over the next three years. This is a good first step, but the level for me is still a concern. Acquisition growth? Although there was praise for the Argos acquisition at the time, nearly three years later, the question has to be asked: was it worth it? In the final results, Sainsbury’s, did not separate Argos’s financial contribution to the group and instead focused on synergies and its presence in Sainsbury’s stores. I think investors deserve a little more detail than that, given £1.4bn was spent on acquiring the business. The dividend: Then there is the dividend. It may be tempting to want to grab shares in a company yielding over 5%. However, with profit before tax plummeting, it is hard to see the sustainability in increasing the dividend and unless the underlying business improves, a future cut to the dividend looks likely to me. It happened to Tesco in recent memory and it could happen to Sainsbury’s too. Even with the share price at its lowest in a decade, I would not be tempted to buy into Sainsbury’s. To me it looks like a value trap, and one that I’m keen not to fall into.
