Supermarkets Leading FTSE After a Strong Summer

Tuesday, 19th September 2017

The sales report, published by Kantar Worldpanel, said that sales grew by 3.6 percent for the 12 weeks leading up to the 10th of September. Discount retailers Lidl and Aldi are continuing to grab market share from the big four, reporting growth of 19.2 percent and 15.6 percent respectively. Their market shares now stand at 5.3 percent and 6.9 percent.

Meanwhile, Tesco reported a 2.7 percent increase in sales, with Morrisons enjoying growth of 2.1 percent, Sainsbury’s seeing growth of 2.1 percent, and Asda enjoying growth of 1.5 percent. This news helped Morrisons to become one of the biggest risers in the FTSE 100 this morning, up by 2.2 percent, while Sainsbury’s added 1.9 percent, and Tesco gained 1 percent. The collective increase helped the FTSE 100 to add 23 points during early trading, a gain of 0.3 percent.

Online supermarket Ocado was not among those who enjoyed positive trading. The FTSE 250 listed company fell to the bottom of the mid cap index, shedding 3.6 percent after it warned that it had seen an increase in its short term costs.

The supermarket sector has been a turbulent one of late, with the increasing competition from the out of town discounters often weighing on the big four domestic retailers.
