Sell at 332p (this week’s price 317p), advises Credit Suisse. A recent first quarter trading update brought news of a surprise fund raising exercise (£430m), the bank highlights.

However, the move accelerates the company’s growth strategy, with 40pc of the new floor space being acquired being used for non-food sales, notes Credit Suisse. The bank remains sceptical that Sainsbury can profitably replicate competitors, believing that the expansion increases investor risk.
