Inghams (ING) - Strategy Day 2023

Margins higher

17 November 2023

Inghams strategy day provided an upbeat tone about the opportunities to improve its sales mix and capex projects that will lift profit margins.

JB Hi-Fi (JBH) 1H23 result insights

While JB Hi-Fi had a record half of earnings in 1H23, that is in the rear-vision mirror. The forward trajectory suggests a normalisation of sales and earnings is imminent. We expect negative comp sales in 2H23e and 1H24e for both JB Hi-Fi Australia and The Good Guys. We expect gains from inflation, and The Good Guys improved buying terms.

We expect sales growth to recover to 5%-6% from here and the growth gap to Coles will narrow. The market remains orderly around price inflation, which will support earnings growth. Moreover, the headwinds in NZ should ease soon and margins are likely to recover in calendar 2023.
