Bestway is no longer a wholesaler. It’s an activist investor… in Sainsbury’s - By Adam Leyland:

It’s easy to dismiss Bestway’s £250m “investment221; in Sainsbury’s as the actions of a tilting upstart. It’s clearly in no position to pull off an acquisition via a debt-fuelled reverse takeover. And timing-wise, it’s arguably missed its moment from an investment point of view. Even before news broke of the 4.5% stake it’s now taken, Sainsbury’s share price was already up almost 50% from its low last October, including a 20% increase this year.

But this is no passive investment, relying on the Sainsbury’s management to boost the Pervez-Choudrey-Sheikh family’s wealth funds. No. We need to think of Bestway as activist investors, like Nelson Peltz, who got himself a seat on the Unilever board (and countless others before) with a stake way smaller than Bestway’s, and has taken an active role in the departure of CEO Alan Jope and the appointment of Hein Schumacher. Or Kelso Group with its new 0.4% stake in THG. Or MS Galleon, a Vienna-based investor that is trying to use its 30% stake in Topps Tiles to oust CEO (and ex-Sainsbury’s exec) Darren Shapland and make the DIY chain stock more tiles from a manufacturer it owns.

Bestway is “looking forward to supporting the executive management team”. That means altering the Sainsbury’s strategy, and with a view to bolstering the fortunes of Bestway in a far broader sense than shares alone. Sainsbury’s, of course, pulled out of its fledgling wholesale supply deal to focus on “food first”. But teaming up with other Sainsbury’s investors like Daniel Kretinsky and the Qatar Investment Authority, Bestway could form a powerful lobby for change, putting pressure on the Sainsbury’s board to do “a Tesco-Booker”. That deal achieved £200m of synergies, and who’s to say the combination of the Well pharmacy, retail franchise arm, combined buying capabilities, a strong property portfolio and better cash discipline couldn’t do something similar?

With a paper deal for a 10%-15% stake, Sainsbury’s wouldn’t even have to hand over any cash. So Sainsbury’s would remain a public company but controlled by Bestway and other non-execs. Smart, eh?

One thing I can see, is the broker / advising bank who is buying the shares for Bestway will do every thing they can to keep Sainsbury's share price down, to stop them rising.

I notice there were 3 x 921,501 Buys reported after hours and all 3 for the same price??? + after hours 329,724 and 280,000. I would say all 5 trades are far too large for the Private Retail Investor.

It is good to see share price improved and shorting is still not reduce @ current level 3.73% plus 1.00% sleeper account. I am waiting for others bidder to come forward that is why shorting is on hold. They are able to close shorting @ around 1.70 gbp the lowest price but not done. So wait and watch to cross 3.00 gbp and further reaction in price much better. Good luck

Not anti Sainsbury's

It's just obvious the management have not been aligned with shareholders for decades.

There's no getting away from it. The long term share price performance has been utterly diabolical. And for good reason.

If a good business manager had been running this company for the last 30 years, shareholders would be very happy indeed

UK inflation: how everyday items and services shot up in price

The UK’s inflation rate fell for a second month in December, dropping to 10.5%. But households remain under pressure as prices continue to rise for a wide range of goods and services.

Despite the fall in the headline rate, food and non-alcoholic drinks jumped by a collective 16.8%, the fastest annual rate of increase since 1977. Price rises for restaurant meals and overnight stays in hotels also accelerated.

The Office for National Statistics compiled the overall figures using the consumer prices index, but also logs individual goods and service prices. Here we break down how those everyday items have shot up over the past year.

J Sainsbury:

2022 has been a bruising year for the UK’s established grocers like Sainsbury’s (LSE:SBRY).

Takings have been hit hard by falling demand for food and other essentials. At the same time their margins have shrunk as they’ve slashed prices to tempt shoppers through their doors.

A subsequent fall in the J Sainsbury share price now leaves the grocer looking extremely cheap on paper. At 218p per share, it trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10.5 times. The forward dividend yield meanwhile clocks in at a market-beating 5.7%.

Pleasingly, the cost-of-living crisis is tipped to moderate during the second half of 2023. So shoppers could have more money to spend in Sainsbury’s.

But the business still has to grapple with the long-term problem of rising competition, a battle it’s shown little sign of winning. Its market share has dropped 1.7% over the past 10 years as discounters Aldi and Lidl have expanded.

Earlier this month, Sainsbury’s announced plans to invest another £50m to bring down prices. As a potential investor, I want to see the firm do more to defend itself. Profits-sapping price cutting hasn’t worked yet and I think the business is pouring away good money after bad.

The FTSE 100 firm also faces prolonged staff, energy and product cost inflation that could persist long beyond 2023. This low-cost share carries far too much risk for my liking.

I believe that Tescos share price was 477p some years back.
Surely - even if Sainsburys has lower profits and lower profits wont be down by 33% either - the share price cannot drop much further ??
Shows one can lose a lot money on a solid 100 share stock. £3 to 1.74 in 6 months.
A number of share prices have fallen off a cliff of late though.

But it looks like that the dividend of 7% may be held over the next 3 years, which will be good if it is not wiped out by a further lower share price. Are we at the bottom or near is the $64 question ??

But then for a dividend share - what about DEC.?

Posted at 01/10/2022 15:28 by clive7878
Has Sainsburys share price now bottomed out is the £64 question?. The yield is obviously very appealing. But then Vodafone is also in the same situation with a 8% yield. Is it a buying time, when will the share price stop falling ???

325p bid price, almost double what it is now, is almost dreaming.

they're doing the sale and leaseback to buy back the other portfolio of stores, which they've probably decided is the better bet. what they appear not to have considered is they could either borrow to buy them out (cheaper), or cut the dividend to fund it, either of which is a much better decision than another s&l. the way land values are going long term, a SBRY with high freehold ownership could be a rock solid business throwing off cash, underpinned by rising property prices.

so a truly baffling capital allocation decision, but that's the story of the UK listed supermarkets. a lesson in how not to allocate capital. the outcome of that is plain for all to see in the share price.

compare the shareholder returns of the REITs they sell to in the last 5 years or so. they do zero work, other than collect rent, and make a higher return on capital than the supermarkets themselves. consider all the work and risk they take, the fact that the REITs get paid before SBRY shareholders, and decide which business as investors you want to put your bets on.
