I shop there quite abit whenever I'm in China. Not vested. From DB:-

* Lianhua Supermarket -

Dec SSS growth update - (Hold, 0980.HK, HK$9.57): After an update with Lianhua management, we estimate that sss growth for Dec was flat at c. 1% yoy.

This is compared to mid single digit in Oct/Nov. We believe this might be partly due to Chinese consumers holding up their budget for Spring festival.

Consumers are expected to start shopping for this big festival one week or so prior to the festival.

DJ MARKET TALK: UBS Raises Lianhua Supermarket Target To HK$18.41

1539 [Dow Jones] STOCK CALL: UBS maintains Lianhua Supermarket Holdings (0980.HK) at Buy, raises target price to HK$18.41 from HK$17.15; says 1H net profit was CNY249.7 million, higher than broker's estimate of CNY223.8 million, due to improved hypermarket operating margins, higher income from term deposits.

"The hypermarket EBIT margin improved from 1.4% in H108 to 1.7% in H109 as a result of fewer loss-making stores and strengthening operating efficiency." Broker remains optimistic on Hualian Supermarket acquisition as says stores mainly located in Yangtze River Delta region, further consolidation in Eastern China will likely help Lianhua's overall operating margins.

Revises up EPS estimates to CNY0.82/1.01/1.31 from CNY0.76/1.02/1.27 in 2009/10/11, due to higher income from term deposits.
