creditcrunchies: It's their share options they're selling they've been doing this for the past 10 years at least. We got a share scheme where the company matches the shares you by so double your money if the share price is flat. At year end you sell the lot where you make double plus capital gains.
unastubbs: similar thoughts to you NYB, tho' it may take years...(unsure!) - but the dividend is useful and generous while we stick it out. my average price is 2.35 and I'm comfortable holding. bought some more tesco today also. read a great article in the economist last week about how different the US supermarket sector is to the UK. my interpretation is that there is no genuine read across in the crashing share prices of Walmart and Target for the two major quoted stores here.
dipa11: With in a short time it will be back to 2.40 gbp plus And don't forget this is on takeover target as well Shorting is above 4.4% and shorter will have to pay 10 pence dividend if i am correct Any share buy by shorter will give the opportunity to price increase I am very sure that shorter are helping for takeover by Americans by way of reducing share price Good afternoon and good luck
loganair: If up to me, 90% of directors pay would be based on combined margins and profits of the company as the share price can easily be manipulated.
spob: The lower the share price the higher the pay for directors Maybe one day the people who vote at AGM's will actually use their vote. If it was up to me, 90% of director earnings would be directly proportional to the share price of the company. There is no better way to align directors with the actual OWNERS of the company. Institutional investors and pension funds who manage other peoples money have a lot to answer for.
westdean: Higher interest rates, tighter money supply, soaring inflation, tougher financial conditions for an average grocery shopper, aren't all these factors going to conspire to drive people away from the likes of Sainsbury to no-frill retailers such as Aldi, etc? Where is the case for being long in Sainsbury? Regardless of what the true underlying value of this stock is, is it wrong to assume that the share price would continue to suffer in the current climate? I would welcome any useful constructive comment from anyone. So please do not be bashful or inhibited, get posting. Your views and sentiments are very important. It is precisely these that, for better or worse, drive the market.
loganair: Another lot of share options for useless directors. Personally I would like to see far stricter and higher criteria's needed in order for directors to be issued with shares from their share options, such has 10% increase in profits per year and 10% increase in margins per year rather then being based say for example on the share price which can easily be manipulated.
unastubbs: final div raised to 9.9p (13.1p fy = 5.4% yield on yday's close) payout ratio increased from 53% to 60%. outlook: "we expect underlying profit before tax will be between £630 million and £690 million in FY 2022/23. This is below the £730 million reported in FY 2021/22" given what happened with the tesco results this must have been widely expected and sainsburys shares have fallen since those results, while the tsco share price has recovered. i'm hopeful that the increased dividend will win out over the 'profit warning' - but the market likes to focus on the negative with these so let's wait and see. the dividend yield is very high and i am very happy to hold here. would consider buying more if it fell say 10% from here.
loganair: Hedge fund short sellers rocked by Sainsbury’s share price surge amid Apollo takeover talk: Hedge funds betting against Sainsbury’s have been left counting the cost of their negative wagers this week after the FTSE 100-listed supermarket giant saw its share price rocket on the back of fresh takeover rumours. BlackRock Investment Management, Marshall Wace, and the Pelham Long/Short Master Fund are among the high-profile hedge funds positioned short against the UK supermarket giant, according to regulatory disclosures made to the UK Financial Conduct Authority. The UK’s second-largest grocery chain initially saw its share price rocket by some 15 per cent on Monday following weekend media reports that US private equity firm Apollo Global Management was preparing a potential GBP7 billion (USD9.6 billion) swoop for the retailer. Though Sainsbury’s value has since pegged back slightly, it remains up more than 10 per cent this week. Wednesday’s 321p is approaching a near-three year high for the retailer, which only last month was found to be the second most-shorted company among London-listed stocks, according to GraniteShares data. FCA disclosures show BlackRock has a 2.02 per cent net short position, Pelham is sized at 1.28 per cent net short, while Marshall Wace is 0.65 per cent. In the past, well-known brand name hedge funds including Citadel, AHL, and GLG Partners held bearish bets against the company. Earlier this summer, short sellers took a hit after the company surged on the back of surprisingly strong Q1 sales numbers, which prompted it to revise its profit outlook upwards. New York-based Apollo – which is also understood to be eyeing a consortium bid for rival retailer Morrison’s alongside Fortress Investment Group – is one of several PE giants said to be weighing up a bid for Sainsbury’s. Along with Tesco and Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons comprise the UK’s ‘Big Four’ supermarkets that dominate the grocery sector. Sainsbury’s is seen as a particularly attractive target due to its extensive property portfolio in the southeast of England.
loganair: Is the Sainsbury’s share price (SBRY) about to explode? The J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) share price has performed brilliantly over the last year, rising 57% by last Friday’s close. It’s up another 11% this morning. Could it be about to explode? Sainsbury’s share price: ready to rocket? According to headlines over the weekend, private equity group Apollo is taking a closer look at Sainsbury. While this has been referred to as merely “exploratory”, it does suggest that we could be about to see an offer submitted for the FTSE 100 member. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise given the bidding war that has erupted for fellow listed supermarket Morrisons. Last week, it was revealed that management would be recommending holders accept a 285p per share bid for the company from Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R). This valued MRW at £7bn, up from the £6.7bn offer received from rival Fortress. Sainsbury’s attractions aren’t hard to fathom either. For one, the shares still look reasonably valued and, before this morning, changed hands for a little less than 14 times earnings. It’s also got a big property portfolio and currently has the second-largest share of the UK grocery market. Based on recent news, I think there’s certainly a chance the share price could continue rising — and potentially explode — over the next few weeks. The fact that it’s already up 6% in early trading today is certainly evidence that the market is getting excited over the company’s near-term outlook.
