+ Watch TSCDY
on My Watchlist
5/15/2013I would just look for an entry point, they might drop a bit more not sure. The way I am planning on playing this one is to buy on the next dip and turn on div reinvestment and let it ride. I have about 20-30 of these picks active on here right now and in the end it is just not likely that they will lose to the market. just depends on your time horizon if you want it slow and steady or if you want to look for other ways--maybe growth stocks. What so many people forget though is to use covered calls with these types of picks--strong div, covered call, plus cap gains=10-15% a year.
Basically the Walmart of Europe and expanding in other countries.... if you don't understand how awesome of a company Walmart has been you should not invest money on your own......... ever. This is a pick were I am not looking @ short term earnings growth because there will be none. This is a market leader pick.....brand name also. You have a huge dividend while u wait. I am confident this company will be making a lot more money 5 to 10 years from now and the stock price will be way higher also.
Nice review of Tesco by Matt Koppenheffer (6/13/12) noting that Buffet has increased his stake significantly. I take that as a bullish sign.
Solid growth outside the UK, huge overreaction over a slight drop in uk market share, expect a gradual correction over the coming years with a nice 4.5% divi along the way
when the market ignores a stock is sometimes a good time not too
U.K. Big box giant with 30% market share has been yelled at by Wall Street for underperforming in their homeland. While their at-home operations can, and I think will, improve, their international operations are growing nicely and see no signs of slowing down.
Simple, profitable business, good corporate reputation and good dividend yield. Possible overseas expanstion may yield growth but a good income producer even if not.
Tesco is the 800-pound gorilla of British grocers: a roaring, chest-thumping giant in a green apron, aggressively discounting its way through the retail jungle. While its market share (30% !) and margins are likely to continue to erode at home, the reason to buy Tesco after its January fall is for its international prospects (the more than 4% dividend doesn't hurt either). Shares are priced for perpetual mediocrity. It's been interesting to see Warren Buffett, never a fan of diworsification for its own sake, choosing Tesco over Wal-Mart/Alda as a home for Berkshire capital.

Long haul buy and hold staple
The top retailer in Britain is doubling their stores in China and most likely to have winning bid on Carrefour's Southeast Asia supermarkets.,in an effort to keep up their growth. They are also an innovator in their multiline stores and more creative than Walmart in providing ancilliary services, such as financial and Video.Warren. Their corp bonds were amoung the best returns ths past year in the global bond market affirming this companies strength. even when they mis-step, they correct it quickly as evidenced in the closing of 8% of their 168 Fresh Direct stores in the US. Buffett (BRK.A)added to his stake in July and owns 3% of the company now.
Mmm...grocery shopping online...
Well managed company. I like it !
The prices are going up people are not taking the risks
Tescos is massive in the products and services they offer, they dominate the UK market. And now they are opening "Fresh & Easy" stores in the US market, these stores are different than the UK stores but offer healthy and affordable alternatives. I would definately recommend this stock for growth.
I am finally going to jump on this wagon and go for the ride. Tesco's "Fresh and Easy" grocery markets are becoming a hit in various parts of Europe already. My Wife and I shop at one near our home. Between them and Trader Joe's, we eat very well and save a bundle over all of the major Grocery Chains. There are a few acceptions, They don't carry a large variety of brands, we learn to adjust. Theit self check-out is the simplest I've ever used. I normally avoid them at all costs, because they are so awkward and work about half the time.These stores will be a big hit, I'm sure. With the dollar not going very far these days, this will be some relief.
