It's a little like when you listen to the "good news stories" on the TV and radio. Irrespective of how good the news is they always have to end it with a BUT !

I don't think there are many idiots presenting CNBC's key shows. As I read the TU, ABF has had a good half. It is however confirming guidance for the year, not increasing it. Specifically on Sterling currency weakness it comments that most of the translation benefit is now in (because sterling weakened in June 2016, part way through 2HFY16), so there won't be so much translation benefit to come YoY in the 2HFY17 results. On transaction exposure though, it comments that hedges for 2HFY17 have been put on at less favourable rates than for 1HFY17, hence the pressure on margins in Primark. Looking ahead, everything else being equal (which of course it won't be), as ABF gets into FY18 YoY translational gains can be expected to be minimal (because 1H FY17 was already at the lower sterling levels) whereas Primark margin pressure can perhaps be expected to increase (because 1HFY18 hedges are likely to be at worse rates than 1HFY17).

The idiot who picked that bit of negativity out obviously hadn't read the entire document. Had he or she done so then it would be clear that the huge improvements elsewhere in the business will far outweigh any minor falls in one sector.

CNBC would as they are still banging on the Brexit agenda. Maybe ABF should process more in the UK then. I would also think the gain on exports and translation of overseas profits in sterling outweighs this.

"the full effect of sterling weakness against the US dollar on Primark's purchases will result in a greater margin decline in the second half because our currency hedges were at more advantageous exchange rates in the first half" This was the bit picked out by CNBC this morning.

mbmiah... Kraft Heinz is backed by Berkshire Hathaway and it is run by Warren Buffett’s favorite deal-making partner, Brazilian private equity firm 3G Capital. To date, Buffett has only participated in friendly merger transactions negotiated by 3G Capital’s deal extraordinaire partners. Perhaps 3G Capital and Kraft Heinz will go back to the drawing board on their deal strategy, either through a negotiated transaction with Unilever or setting their sights on another target.

Kraft Heinz confirms it has approached Unilever about a deal that could be worth over £100bn. I wonder if any or all the parts of ABF look attractive to a foreign buyer?

Investors piled into Associated British Foods, up 34p at 2534p, after Morgan Stanley raised its rating to overweight and said Primark, its prized asset, could grow profits by more than 40% next year. That will happen if the discount clothes retailer hikes prices to compensate for a fall in margins as a result of Brexit, which Morgan Stanley analysts think will happen “in due course”. “Primark remains an excellent long-term international growth story and its margin problems are temporary,” the investment bank argued.

yesterday`s note... ABF has long-term fire power, says Shore Capital Primark-owner Associated British Foods (ABF) may currently run on a ‘fulsome’ valuation, according to Shore Capital, but the analysts are optimistic about the future. Analyst Clive Black retained his ‘hold’ recommendation on the stock, which yesterday rose 49p to close 2% up at £24.96. ‘ABF is a high quality company, in our view, with excellent management, financial constitution, organisation make up and long-term prospects. In recent times the share has perhaps over-run on over-exuberance with respect to the prospects of the best in class Primark discount apparel business; maybe more realism is now present,’ he said. Black said the ‘hold’ recommendation reflected ‘the currently reasonably fulsome valuation and the more recent mellow news from Primark on margin investment against strong progress elsewhere in the group’. However, he added the company has ‘a powerful balance sheet and much fire power for long-term development’.
