JBHIFI ( JBH ) Buy Buy Buy

JB Hi-Fi. Consumer electronics retailer JB Hi-Fi has been one of the better performers during the slump in the equity markets and with the company continuing to build market share and snare customers from its rivals, stock pickers continue to see further upside for investors.


The retailer has upgraded its 2008-09 profit guidance by 41% to $92 million, up from the previous guidance of $87 million. One stock picker says the company is better-placed than many of its peers if retail conditions weaken as the federal government’s stimulus cheques begin to peter out and unemployment rises.

JBH -About

JB Hi-Fi Limited engages in the retail of home consumer products in Australia and New Zealand. It offers consumer electronics, including televisions, high fidelity, DVD players, home theatres, digital still, video cameras, mobile phones, and accessories; electrical goods comprising whitegoods, computing equipment, kitchen equipment, air conditioners, and small electrical appliances; car sound systems, such as audio and visual products; and music, games, and movies. As of June 30, 2008, the company operated 93 stores in Australia and 12 stores in New Zealand. JB Hi-Fi was founded in 1974 and is based in Brighton, Australia.

There is no question that the stimulus payments have helped the company improve its margins. One stock picker says that despite the considerable run up in price, the stock remains an attractive alternative to its traditional rivals like Harvey Norman.
Management has reiterated that although the business is not recession-proof, it is currently the best-positioned retailer listed on the ASX.
