What can we expect to see?

One household name that investors will be paying some attention to today is supermarket operator Coles Group.

A month ago, news hit the headlines of inflation adding some sting to the prices of food and groceries. Analysts from UBS noted that Woolworths Group Ltd (ASX: WOW) had produced larger price increases than its major competitor.

Furthermore, UBS suggested the lower increases from Coles were a strategic move to take more market share. Today, shareholders will be wanting to see whether the strategy paid off and what it meant for margins.

Heading into today, the consensus estimate for Coles’ net profit after tax (NPAT) was $582 million. This would represent a year-on-year increase of 6% if achieved.

An even larger ASX share is set to report its half-year results on Tuesday. Australia’s BHP Group could report net profits of US$8.7 billion today. While the number might sound impressive, it would actually represent an 8% decline from the prior corresponding period.

Unfortunately, both iron ore and copper prices were significantly lower during the second half of 2022. The extent to which this impacted BHP’s revenue and profits will be squarely in focus today.

According to Bloomberg, the Aussie miner could announce a dividend of 90 cents per share.
