SAO PAULO Dec 9 (Reuters) - GPA SA , Brazil's biggest retailer, will be more selective with investments and protective of cash in 2016, it said in a Wednesday presentation.

With Brazil's economy suffering its worst recession in 25 years and consumer prices climbing nearly 10 percent in a year, GPA has struggled to maintain supermarket sales, while demand has plunged at its home appliance division Via Varejo SA .
