loganair: FTSE 100 retail opportunities: Other UK shares that could benefit the most from a stock market recovery include retailers. Although some retail stocks may find it hard to adapt to a changing operating landscape, the likes of FTSE 100 stocks Next, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons appear to be successfully adjusting to an increasingly online world. All four stocks have invested heavily in expanding their online presence since the start of this year. This may provide them with dominant market positions versus rivals, which may strengthen their financial prospects in the long run. They also have deep pockets through which to further shift resources from in-store offers to digital opportunities. After a mixed year for their share prices, they could offer capital appreciation opportunities relative to other UK shares in a likely long-term stock market recovery.
loganair: Sainsbury's share price forecast 2021: will the company adapt to the industry’s new reality? by Nicole Willing. Shares in UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s have dropped by 15 per cent this year, despite grocery sales rising at their fastest rate in more than two decades during lockdowns to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic. What is driving the company’s stock lower? And what is the SBRY share price forecast 2021 and beyond? The highly competitive grocery market in the UK makes for volatile stocks. Investors closely following Sainsbury’s share price news would have seen that the stocks of three of the four largest retailers – Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons – have all fallen by 15 per cent year to date, while the share price for online supermarket Ocado has doubled since the start of the year. Sainsbury’s cedes market share, faces increased costs: When deciding what to do with Sainsbury shares – buy or sell, investors should consider its position in the market. Sainsbury’s was founded in 1869 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1973 – at that time, the largest-ever initial public offering on the exchange. Sainsbury's share price has been in decline since 2018, as the largest supermarket chains have lost market share to discount retailers. The stock fell by around 10 per cent in 2019 and reached its lowest level in 30 years. Sainsbury’s market share has dropped to 14.9 per cent from 16 per cent in 2019, data from Kantar shows, while competitors like Aldi, Lidl, and Co-op have gained ground. Sainsbury’s share price forecast 2021: can the stock turn around? Sainsbury’s share price is likely to continue to trade lower, at least in the near term. In fact, SBRY is one of the most shorted stocks on the London Stock Exchange. Shore Capital last month reiterated its recommendation to buy the stock with a Sainsbury share price forecast of £1.87, and the stock has since risen above that level. Analysts at Barclays also recommended the stock as a buy ahead of its interim results on November 5, citing its strong underlying free cash flow, anticipated higher sales and strategic update. Their price target of £2.50 per share indicates a potential upside of around 25 per cent. Technical forecasting service WalletInvestor indicates the share price will continue to decline, falling to £1.89 in December. Its Sainsbury's share price forecast 2021 shows the price dropping further to £1.58 by the end of the year and slipping to £0.98 by December 2023 and £0.44 by October 2025.
loganair: Tempted by the Sainsbury’s share price? Let’s examine the facts: Sainsbury’s share price – recovering or ailing? Market sentiment has been against Sainsbury’s for some time now. Its share of the UK grocery market has declined from around 17% at peak to 14.9% currently, whilst the expensive failed merger with Asda dented confidence in the group management. Although the pandemic has led a surge in grocery demand, this has been through the less profitable channel of online sales. Analysts also expect around £500m of pandemic related costs, forcing a delay in store investment. It is also interesting to note that Sainsbury’s depends heavily on non-food sales, driven mainly by its acquisition of Argos. This element of choice purchases by consumers leaves it more vulnerable to the economic downturn that we now find ourselves in. The final dose of bad news for investors comes in the form of the ailing bank. After requiring significant capital injections over the last two years, the expectation is that a further £350m could be needed to cover bad debts and write-downs until 2023. The period of historically low interest rates also makes generating profit from banking difficult. summary: Given these significant headwinds, I can’t see any basis for investment, so I’m avoiding the Sainsbury’s share price for now. Indeed, it has declined further since the April examination. However, if you do like the look of the supermarket sector in general, I see reasons to be optimistic in Morrisons latest trading statement. The share price is nearly identical to Sainsbury’s, but Morrisons is yielding a superior dividend, and has lifted its interim payout by 5.7%. Although half year profits fell significantly, the rise in like-for-like sales excluding fuel sat nicely at 8.7%, leaving it well placed to focus on improving profitability. Similar to Sainsbury’s, a portion of this growth was through the online channel, but crucially Morrisons is starting from a smaller online and delivery presence than its rivals, and as such has more room to grow. The strengthening of its relationship with Amazon also gives more room for expansion in this area. In announcing expectations of improved free cash flow, reduction in net debt and underlying pre-tax profit, I see a momentum in Morrisons that Sainsbury’s lacks, and as such the former’s shares are worth a very close look from potential investors in my opinion.
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: 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.
bend1pa: Loginair - 'Both stocks have outperformed the FTSE 100 (in the past 3 months)'. Sorry, but that's just blatantly untrue. Any follower of SBRY shares would know that anyway. But I checked, and you can see clearly below how badly SBRY share price has performed against the FTSE 100 before and during the pandemic. Any analyst making such spurious claims isn't fit for purpose.
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: £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.
