debsdowner: Tesco comments about Jacks laughable and the market know it. Aldi and Lidl are opening 20 times faster than Jack's its too little too late, as some have said about the big four they are dinosaurs now outdated and are becoming extinct. The real market (shareholders) know this and that is why the share price tanked today, 2.5% isn't good enough at this state of play. The rate ALDI and LIDL are expanding the big four will lose more market. share yet TESCO hoping to achieve far better margins of between 4-5% may not happen.

loganair: “There’s little for Tesco to crow about outside of the UK and Ireland. It’s clearly having a tough time in Thailand and there are costs associated with its gradual pull-out of Poland,” said Emma-Lou Montgomery, a director at Fidelity International. “With Aldi ramping up its UK expansion, Tesco clearly has an ongoing battle on its hands to retain its number one spot in the supermarket stakes.” “Tesco is in good shape to go into battle, and the successful acquisition of Booker combined with improved operating performance, means the CEO Dave Lewis will have a spring in his step,” Hargreaves Lansdown analysts said in a note, adding that the fall in the share price today reflects a reality check for the market, given the stock has jumped a fifth in the last year. Though the profit miss “rattled the market” according to analysts at The Share Centre, they believe that investors who back Lewis’ strategy and are willing to be patient, are likely to be rewarded further.

demo trader: Tesco's margins are rising and the 3.5% to 4% range it set as a target by 2020 now looks within touching distance, at least at its lower end, although the market was "expecting more improvement on this front," says Hargreaves Lansdown. That disappointment has fed through into the share price, which had been on a strong run of late, so a correction "reflects a bit of a reality check," the analyst says. "Things are getting better, just not quite as quick as stretched expectations would suggest," Hargreaves Lansdown says. 217.7p now, -14p

lammylover: I'm not a Jamie fan, but Dave Lewis (CEO) knows what he is doing and the Tesco - Food Love Stories advertising campaign has been good in my opinion. Next week sees the launch of Jacks, with an unveiled branch in Chatteris Cambs - this is to take on Aldi / Lidl at their own game. I'm confident that Tesco keep doing the right things and the recent dip in share price, is just a breather / temp before we move up past 260p. Rich

lefrene: pvee, once you get behind the scenes of the food industry you find that a handful of manufacturers supply just about all of the food retailers. I once saw a production line churning out slab fruit cake packaged for Marks and Spencer, and once the M&S quantity was complete they switched the packaging to Kwik-Save. I asked the foreman about this and he told me that the M&S cake had to have guaranteed minimum quantities of fruit, which took employee time to monitor accurately, whereas the Kwik-Save cake required no such guarantee, but in all other respects the cakes were identical. The Kwik-Save cake was 85p the M&S £3.45p. More recently at a cheese cake plant I found just about every brand you could name, and discovered that the 'fresh' cheese cakes had simply been taken out of the cold store and placed in a container for 24hrs kept at 2C. Marketing is a wonderful tool! Food is like a great many 'branded' products, very often the owner of the brand has very little to do with the actual production of the good, and the specialist manufacturer is also supplying the competing brands. When it suits I quite happily buy from the discounters as I am able to discern quality for myself, and know that price is not necessarily a reliable indicator of quality, as indeed was reflected in the Tesco share price a while back! Now Tesco at a much cheaper price looks better value and with improved quality.

big yankee dealer: Times Business News "Commentary Column" yesterday: Tesco ignores bump on Booker road Alistair Osborne Recommended takeovers can be dull. So full marks to the hedgies for trying to keep things interesting. They’ve invented “bumpitrage221; — a delightful game designed to wind up chief executives everywhere just when they are on the brink of completing their big deal. It’s a simple jape: jump on the target company’s register and then, in the run-up to the investor vote, threaten to bring the whole thing down unless there’s a bump in the takeover price. Make enough noise to get other investors onside and you might even pull it off without actually owning any shares — just contracts for difference. It has become an Elliott forte. Paul Singer’s hedge fund has a CV full of bumps: forcing Anheuser-Busch Inbev into extra froth for SAB Miller, pushing Lone Star to up its offer for Quintain and getting more fuel out of ENOC for Dragon Oil. It even spooked Steinhoff into paying extra for Poundland — and all en route to the South African oufit’s implosion amid fraud claims. So at least here’s one bit of cheery news for Tesco boss Dave Lewis: no sign yet of Elliott on the Booker register. No, the bumpitrageur here is 1.75 per cent holder Sandell Asset Management. It reckons Mr Lewis’s £3.9 billion cash-and-shares bid for Booker is from the supermarket discount range. It’s got a point, too. At last night’s 204½p close, Tesco’s offer values Booker at 219p a share — below the present 225p. Moreover, Sandell has landed itself a vocal supporter: the proxy voting agency ISS. It’s telling the cash-and-carry outfit’s shareholders to “vote against the transaction” at February 28’s investor meeting. Booker needs 75 per cent of voting shareholders to approve the deal. ISS makes some decent points. Booker has only 6 per cent of the faster-growing, £85 billion “out of home” food market, so it still has lots to go for. Its 6.3 per cent compound average revenue growth over five years trounces Tesco UK’s 0.5 per cent. A 16 per cent share of the £200 million mooted synergies is no compensation for sharing 84 per cent of its profits with Tesco. And look at total shareholder returns over five years: 203 per cent for Booker; minus 33 per cent for Tesco. Now Booker’s locked into Tesco’s share price, it’s also missed the 20 per cent rise of its wholesaler peers. Some blame must lie with Mr Lewis, whose four-year turnaround has failed to extend to the Tesco share price. But at least he has one card to play: Booker boss Charles Wilson. He’s so keen on the deal that he’s rolling over £230 million of Booker shares into Tesco’s — and locking them up for five years. True, he is Mr Lewis’s heir apparent. But, after all the money Mr Wilson has made for them, would Booker investors really vote down his deal and risk his resignation? It’s hard to equate that with the ISS view that “if the deal with Tesco falls apart, there is seemingly limited downside risk for Booker’s shares”. Tesco needs only 50 per cent support. But Mr Lewis already has two rebel investors: Schroders and Artisan, together with 9 per cent. Bump the price and he may have more. Besides, there’s a fair bit of overlap on the shareholder registers. So, for now you would expect Mr Lewis to tough it out — even if logic says he deserves to be bumped.

alphahunter: As often with mergers/take-overs, there has been an overshoot in TSCO share price. Day-trading short is looking good.
