Ahold: the last days of Disco

Scandal-ridden Ahold can't afford any more nasty surprises, so it's focusing on mature markets. For a healthier firm, however, Ahold's South American businesses are a strong opportunity.

Ahold: trouble in the US ongoing

Ahold's strong Q4 trading in the Netherlands could not offset the losses incurred in the US, where long running underperformance continued, even though US like-for-like sales declines were clearly exacerbated by a weak dollar. This could prompt activist shareholders Centaurus and Paulson & Co to step up their pressure on the retailer to break up its operations.

Aldi has entered the fuel retailing market by opening three service stations in the Austrian town of Salzburg, offering heavily discounted fuel. With such a strong brand image and efficient business model, Aldi is likely to extend its petrol retailing presence across Austria and Europe, and may soon pose a challenge to the more established industry players.

Aldi: rise of the discounters

Aldi's ambitious five-year expansion plan could help it to achieve its long-term goal of 1,500 UK stores, as with a current store portfolio of just under 400 stores, its progress in the UK has been relatively unspectacular. Although major changes to the proposition have boosted sales and shopper numbers, it remains to be seen whether Aldi can become a significant player in the UK grocery market.

Aldi: strong UK prospects dampened by rivals
