loganair: There is no dividend, remember. This was suspended in April, even though rival Tesco has stood by its payout. Interestingly, recent Sainsbury’s share price performance has been marginally better. It is up 7.5% in the last month while Tesco is down 2%. I suspect investors are indulging in a bit of profit-taking today, because these are good results. The dividend will return at some point. Right now, analysts are forecasting a yield of 4.8% in 2021, and 5.1% in 2022. That is the main reason to buy into the Sainsbury’s share price – for income. Share price growth has been non-existent for years.
loganair: I do not understand why when I post that a companies share price is going to fall, so many posters say I'm 'Short' and when I post that the share price is going to rise then I am 'Long'??? When all I am doing is posting information to engender dialogue, discussion and involvement of other posters so they can carefully explore, examine and interpret the value of the information while not selling an opinion or recommending a specific course of action, rather giving all on this thread a better understanding and knowledge about the company with which to form their own opinions on.
loganair: Sainsbury’s share price continues to trade towards multi-year lows, due to the bearish fundamentals surrounding the UK supermarket chain. Sainsbury share price analysis shows that more downside towards the 105p level remains possible while the price trades under the 225p resistance area. Sainsbury’s medium-term price trend: Sainsbury’s share price is trading close to the weakest levels of the year so far, as investors continue to shun the stock and traders sell any upside rallies. Since the start of 2020 Sainsbury’s share price has lost more than 15 per cent and it is trading basically flat on a year-to-date basis. SBRY share price technical analysis shows that a bearish head-and-shoulders pattern is warning of further losses towards the 105p level. The daily time frame shows that a bearish head-and-shoulders pattern has been activated, with around 120p downside projection. Failure to move the price above the neckline of the pattern, around the 235p level, could see the stock falling towards the pattern’s bearish target, around the 105p level, over the medium-term. Sainsbury’s short-term price trend: SBRY share price technical analysis shows that Sainsbury’s stock has a short-term bearish bias while the price trades below the 210p resistance level. According to the size of the bearish pattern the stock could fall towards the 163p level if the pattern reaches its full downside potential. Traders should note that the bearish pattern has been activated now that the price trades below the 200p level. Bulls somehow need to move the price above the 237p resistance level to invalidate the pattern. Sainsbury’s technical summary: SBRY analysis highlights that the share price of the British supermarket giant could fall towards the 163p level, and possibly even the 105p support level.
loganair: Robert Stephens Equity Analyst - The share prices of supermarkets such as Morrisons and Sainsbury’s have outperformed many of their peers in the past three months. Morrisons’ share price is up 2% over the period, and Sainsbury’s has dropped 10%. Both stocks have outperformed the FTSE 100. I think the two companies are in good positions to generate improving financial performances in the long run. Sure, Covid-19 could cause higher costs for them in the short run, but I feel that their online operations could now become increasingly popular. This may differentiate them from budget peers that have been a thorn in their sides for the past few years. Sainsbury’s plan to reduce debt and shut some unprofitable stores may catalyse its financial performance. It is due to have a new CEO in place in the short run, which could cause some disruption to its share price to my mind as its strategy may be subject to change.
loganair: 3 reasons why I’d buy Tesco shares and sell Sainsbury’s: The Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price rose modestly this morning, after the UK’s biggest supermarket reported “strong” Christmas trading despite “a subdued UK market”. In fact, Tesco’s UK sales were flat over the holiday period, but even so, investors were pleased. In contrast, J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) reported rising sales over Christmas on Wednesday, but the smaller supermarket’s share price fell. Tesco shares have risen by over 15% over the last year. Over the same period, Sainsbury’s have fallen more than 15%. Here’s why I think the market is right to be bullish about Tesco and worried about Sainsbury’s. 1. What’s the point of this business? Sainsbury’s shares currently trade at a 36% discount to their net asset value of 357p per share. This is unusual for a profitable retailer. Tesco stock, for example, trades at a 76% premium to its net asset value of 143p per share. Sainsbury’s valuation means that its shares trade below the breakup value that might be achieved if its property portfolio and banking business were sold. I can only see one reason for this, which is that the group’s trading business is not currently profitable enough to justify its existence. Looking back over the last year, Sainsbury’s reported an operating margin of 1.9% and a return on capital employed of 3.3%. I don’t think that’s enough of a return to justify the money tied up in the group’s operations. In contrast, the equivalent figures for Tesco were 4.0% and 6.4%. Those are much more appealing numbers, in my view. 2. Why are Sainsbury’s margins so low? In my view, Sainsbury’s has two main problems. One is that the group has tried to maintain its upmarket reputation while cutting prices to be more competitive. Competing with Tesco is tough, given the larger firm’s economies of scale. I believe that the second problem is Argos. I was bullish on this acquisition at the time. But I’ve since changed my mind. Argos has to compete against larger retailers such as Amazon and Dixons Carphone on high-value sales. Profits margins are very slim indeed – lower than for groceries, according to my sums. The end result is a business that turns over lots of cash, but appears to make very little money. In contrast, when Tesco went looking for new growth opportunities a few years ago, it decided to expand into wholesale. The acquisition of Booker provided growth and higher-margin sales. It was a very smart deal, in my view. 3. The growth problem: Talk of growth leads me to the final reason why I’d buy Tesco instead of Sainsbury’s. In 2014, Sainsbury’s reported an after-tax profit of £716m. Last year, that figure was £186m. The group has not yet figured out a way to return to growth. Tesco has had problems, too. But in 2014 it reported a net profit of £970m. By last year, that figure had recovered to reach £1,320m. The outlook for the year ahead mirrors this pattern. City analysts expect Sainsbury’s to deliver earnings growth of about 2% in 2020/21. Forecasts for Tesco suggest that its earnings will rise by about 8% over the same period. For me, it’s an easy choice. Sainsbury’s 4.6% dividend yield may be tempting, but I think the business has problems that will be tough to solve. I’d feel much more confident buying Tesco for my portfolio.
loganair: £1k to invest? I’d buy the Tesco share price ahead of Sainsbury’s by Harvey Jones: As the year draws to a close, I decided to take a sentimental look at some of my old stock picks from the start of the year, and this one leapt out from January. Why I would sell the Sainsbury’s share price today and buy Tesco. Different directions: Happily, that proved to be a good call, because Sainsbury’s has seen its share price fall by 27% in the last year, while Tesco has shot up in the opposite direction, climbing 20%. Both started the year in a bad place, with the Sainsbury’s share price down 17% over five years, and Tesco down 30%, as they wilted under the Aldi and Lidl onslaught. I favoured Tesco because it boasted superior earnings growth, operating margins and return on capital employed. I have also been impressed by Dave Lewis’s energetic turnaround plan since joining Tesco in 2014, although I also admired Sainsbury’s boss Mike Coupe’s £1.4bn Argos acquisition, which appears to have paid off so far. Going head to head: What I couldn’t know at the time was that the Competition & Markets Authority would block Coupe’s bid to merge Sainsbury’s with Asda, although I knew it was a risk, given that the new group would have a total market share of more than 30%. It was a step too far for Coupe, and Sainsbury’s is now searching for a replacement. So would I still favour Tesco over Sainsbury’s today? Tesco is by far the bigger operation now, with a market-cap of around £24bn. I was surprised to see how far Sainsbury’s has shrunk, as it had now dipped below £5bn. Perhaps inevitably, given recent underperformance, Sainsbury’s is cheaper trading at 11.2 times forward earnings, but Tesco isn’t that much more expensive at 13.6 times. Going for growth: The best reason for buying Sainsbury’s is the yield, which now stands at a forecast 4.8%, with cover of 1.8. Tesco is still in the process of restoring its dividend, so today’s 3.5% payout looks disappointing, although cover of 2.1 gives scope for further growth. Operating margins of 2% at Sainsbury’s are lower than Tesco’s 3.2%. The difference in return on capital employed is cavernous by comparison, 3.2% at Sainsbury’s, against 13% at Tesco. The earnings are the real clincher. Sainsbury’s is in a spiral, with earnings down in four of the last five years, and the negative trend forecast to continue this year and next. Tesco, by comparison, has delivered earnings per share growth of 65%, 82% and 12% over the last three consecutive years, and that looks set to continue, with analysts predicting 13%, 10% and 8% over the next three. Same again, please: The Tesco share price has been given a further lift by its plans to offload operations in Malaysia and Thailand. Barring accidents, Lewis will move to fresh pastures next year bathed in glory following a successful turnaround operation. Now some investors like to sell their winners, and that’s tempting here because, surely, Sainsbury’s is ready for a comeback? However, I still favour Tesco because it appears to boast the better bottom line. I’d buy it ahead of Sainsbury’s once again.
loganair: A few years ago when Sainsbury's had a higher share price then it does today Ocado share price was 60p and all the financial pundits were saying that Ocado's share price is way over priced. Today, Sainsbury's share price is lower while Ocado's share price has risen some 20 times.
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.
