Sainsbury and Asda - a match made in necessity

2018-04-30 03:25:20

It is undoubtedly too early to congratulate the newly married couple as you don't put two of the big four food retail names together and get it through the competition authorities without some strife, but Sainsbury (SBRY) and the Walmart-owned Asda are doing the right deal for themselves and the other big food retailers. Of course for employees some will unfortunately lose their jobs.

Feck you Sainsbury it is a fecking Easter Egg you Godless morons

2018-03-26 06:17:32

In Greece in a couple of weeks they will celebrate Easter with real eggs dyed a range of bright colours. It was, as it happens how we used to celebrate here as well. I remember my mother preparing such eggs on our hippy dippy self sufficient homestead in 1970s Northants. We did it at Easter to celebrate the re-birth of Jesus, the idea of new life bursting out. Don't tell kids today but that is why we all have eggs at Easter.

Three Shares I Will Sell Soon

2018-01-22 01:20:33

Hello, Share Peckers. I’ve just recently named three of my shares I have high hopes for. So to balance the boat, I’ll now nominate a trio of not-so-hopeful members of my portfolio. Three shares that I plan to sell as soon as the market indicates the best time.

Sainsbury Joins Morrisons on my 'Less-Than-Enthusiastic' List

2018-01-11 01:05:01

Hello, Share Trudgers. Following my less-than-enthusiastic article on Morrisons (MRW) yesterday, I now turn a jaundiced eye on its rival Sainsbury (SBRY).

Though Sainsbury Tries Harder, the Competition is Just Too Much - sell

2017-07-11 00:00:00

Hello Share Peggers. The latest set of figures from Sainsbury (SBRY) show that sales in the last four months improved by 2.3%. Which is not too bad, considering the huge challenge from the competition these days.

Sainsbury’s: piling it high and selling it cheap (so treat the shares the same)

2016-09-28 03:09:59

As I will publish one day as ‘Chris Bailey’s guide to reading regulatory news statements’, rule 354 is ‘worry about any retail company that starts talking about the price of their products in a RNS’.  Normally such price disclosures highlight desperation and hence Sainsbury’s (SBRY) musings earlier today that…

Sainsbury's does vinyl..are the shares a hit or a flop?

2016-06-08 03:02:56

If you are interested in retail shares then one of the more sensible uses of your research time would be to become familiar with the output of Kantar. Even for cheapskates like me there is a reasonable flow of free insights from the business research consultancy to provide a bit of colour. 

Reviewed: Performance of the most shorted London-listed shares as at the start of 2015

2016-01-15 01:27:56

From the FCA's spreadsheet of short positions required to be disclosed to it, we recently detailed the most shorted London-listed shares at the start of 2016 - see HERE. Is this worth paying some attention to? The following reviews the 2015 performance of the most shorted such shares as at the start of that year (those in bold also on the 2016 list), completing our review of 2015 (which has included of the ShareProphets writers share tips of the year HERE, the China AIM 'Filthy Forty' HERE, the AIM shares shorted HERE and the 2015 UK Investor Show bear calls HERE)...

If you want me to analyse a stock for you just drop me a line at [email protected] - Today I look at shares in Bacanora Minerals (BCN), Polo Resources (POL) and J Sainsbury (SBRY) setting share price targets for all three stocks.

Trouble in Old China, Yes - But What Has that to Do with Barnsley?

2015-08-27 00:08:11

I want to draw your attention to the absurd affect that the trouble in China is having on British shares. One of the biggest fallers has been ITV (ITV). This company makes it money by advertising British companies, like Tesco (TSCO), Sainsbury (SBRY), WM Morrison (WMR) and loads of other very familiar products in the UK.

Let’s Have a Look at Sainsbury’s Strategy Part Two

2014-12-23 08:21:33

How many stores does Sainsbury’s (SBRY) have? According to its website “We operate over 1,200 stores ranging from convenience formats to supermarkets and mixed use developments. Whilst growing and adapting our floorspace to suit customers and local communities, we are always looking to make our stores more environmentally friendly.” I think it’s interesting to look at the wording of that.

Let’s Have a Look at Sainsbury’s Strategy Part One

2014-12-23 05:31:58

Sainsbury’s (SBRY) is more upmarket than any of the other ‘Big Four’ supermarkets, Asda, Tesco (TSCO) and Morrisons (MRW). It leaves German upstarts Aldi and Lidl in the dust in terms of the range of products. And if you’re into ‘Fair Trade’ bananas... well it’s the place to go!

Is Sainsbury’s Being Targeted by Investors Hungry For Profits?

2014-12-15 08:05:37

There are persistent rumours that Sainsbury’s (SBRY) is being targeted by Crystal Amber Fund Ltd in a bid to spice up the ailing supermarket. Crystal Amber is a London based hedge fund which already holds stakes in Aer Lingus, Thorntons and Pinewood Shepperton. However the fund is currently only worth £100 million, so obviously it cannot eat up the big beast that is Sainsbury’s whole.

Sainsbury’s Opens Netto in the North Of England

2014-11-06 06:19:04

The share price of Sainsbury’s (SBRY) has shot up today. The stock has risen 6.4% to reach 263.2p. It’s a personal relief to me- my first article on this site was on Sainsbury’s and I have invested quite a bit of money in the shares. It’s interesting to note that despite this rise the PE is still 6.56 and the yield is 6.56% too. The share is trading at around or even below its net asset value.

Sainsbury’s Needs to go back to Basics

2014-10-06 08:12:16

Let’s talk about Sainsbury’s (SBRY). My article about it was the first I wrote on this site, feel free to check it out HERE. You’ll notice what has happened to the share price since then is... not pretty.

Sainsbury’s is not Tesco!

2014-09-26 13:20:11

So the share prices of both Tesco (TSCO) and Sainsbury’s (SBRY) have been massacred lately. There are genuine reasons for Tesco being destroyed, such as its reason to slash the dividend by 75% and its ‘overstating’ of profits by £250 million. You could call that latter point fraud.

The Advice of Others

2014-09-23 12:50:02

My father originally advised me that Sainsbury’s (SBRY) was a good buy at 315p. “In the long term they’re good value at this price.” I did my own research, saw that the PE was low and the yield attractive. I didn’t have any shares in the supermarket sector and never had, so it was good from a ‘diversity’ view I guess. I bought the share.

Buying Shares is an Important Long Term Decision

2014-09-22 09:15:35

So I’m looking at my Sainsbury’s shares now, feeling quite sad. They’re currently trading at 275.1p. I first bought my original batch at 315p. I think it’s important for share investors to be as honest about their losses as their gains.

Buy J Sainsbury at 302p

2014-08-21 07:33:40

Shares in J Sainsbury (SBRY) are currently trading on a PE of 9.6 and a yield of 5.8%. You can buy Sainsbury's as both a value play and a long term buy and hold share. This article examines the strengths of Sainsbury's brand as well as the value investment case.

Sainsbury at 337p; still good value in a sea of competition

2014-06-12 06:07:14

Last month, I gave my reasons why I thought Sainsbury’s equity was attractive at the then share price of 340p. I described the company as “impressive fundamental value in a sea of intense competition”. In essence, that was based on an estimated prospective dividend yield of 4.8%, backed by a strong balance sheet net asset value of an estimated 317p a share. The share price continued a slide down to about 326p before bouncing; last seen, Sainsbury shares were back up to 337p almost back to where we came in about a month ago. 

Food Glorious Food Won't Help the Share Price Ref: Morrisons, Tesco and Sainsbury.

2014-06-07 11:35:43

Hello Share Persons. Stay away from supermarkets. I don't mean you should stop eating. But think long and hard before buying shares in them. 

Sainsbury shares at 340p, a fundamentally attractive buy

2014-05-28 07:00:33

The results from Sainsbury (SBRY) for the year to 15 March were far from being a disaster; which was good news given the cloud the food retail sector has been under from those drat German price discounters, who seem to have learnt how to compete on both price and perceived quality. Sales were up by 2.8% - not bad even if the ‘like for like’ sales from the stores that had been open a year or more, were up by a mere wisp at plus 0.2%. The company retained its market share in the year to March 2014.

Bye Bye Supermarkets Stocks – It Wasn't That Nice Knowing You.

2014-05-08 07:38:05

Hello Share Twiddlers: I hold shares in Tesco (TSCO), Morrisons(MRW) and Sainsbury (SBRY). I wish I didn't. I'm waiting for a good exit point.

Goodbye Supermarkets - You've Let Me Down Too Often.

2014-04-14 06:00:20

Hello Share People: I hold shares in a few supermarkets - Tesco (TSCO) Sainsbury (SBRY) and Morrisons (MRW). I am inclined to dump them all, even though I have been loyal to them for very many years.

Sainsbury: consumer impoverishment in the UK is making life tougher

2014-01-08 14:53:09

At 360p (last seen) and on an historic dividend yield of 4.6%, Sainsbury shares look a good bet. But.. 

Sainsbury: a respectable relative 2012 performance suggests dividend growth ahead

2013-05-14 14:17:41

Another year, another buck! Sainsbury’s year to the 16th of March was helpful and modest. Sales revenue grew by 4.6% to the £25,632 million of turnover which makes it the UK’s third largest retailer. 

Sainsbury: get your dividends here; even better value than Tesco!

2013-03-17 17:18:21

In the chemical filing cabinet that serves that as my memory, I had evidently misfiled Sainsbury under the heading ‘no dividend interest’; presumably nudged by another memorized observation that Sainsbury has been handsomely outperforming William Morrison and Tesco - which I have also recently reviewed as a dividend paying candidate.
