philanderer: Primark's US expansion in doubt as Morgan Stanley downgrades AB Foods Primark's management regards its US pull-back as "fine-tuning" and remains committed to the US market, but MS now assumes no further expansion in the US in its base case Primark could become the latest successful UK retailer to come a cropper in the US, opined US investment bank heavyweight, Morgan Stanley. The bank is stripping out further Primark US expansion from its base case model on Associated British Foods plc (LON:ABF), the owner of Primark. As a result, the stock has been downgraded from ‘overweight217; to ‘equal weight’, with an increased price target of 3,100p, some 55p above the current AB Foods share price and 300p higher than Morgan Stanley’s previous target price. Morgan Stanley said it is struggling to identify positive catalysts for the share price on a 12-18 month horizon, “We have not given up on Primark eventually succeeding in the US, but now believe that it will be at least another 12-18 months before any further expansion is announced, and with Primark currently delivering c7% lfl [like-for-like] sales in the UK, and sales densities in Europe already extraordinarily high, we find it hard to see where incremental good news will come from in the coming months,” Morgan Stanley (MS) said. On the plus side, MS is increasing its sum-of-the-parts valuation of the group’s food division, which includes Twinings Ovaltine and Jordan Ryvita from around £3.7bn to roughly £5;.6bn. Nevertheless, Primark remains the key to AB Foods in MS’s view, and the retailer has not signed any new leases in the US for around 18 months and has announced plans to reduce the size of three of its eight stores in the US. proactiveinvestors.co.uk

philanderer: 'Credit Suisse raises ABF target price, highlights margins and valuation' (ShareCast News) - Analysts at Credit Suisse bumped up their target price for shares of Associated British Foods, highlighting the potential for the introduction of a 'Click and Collect' model and the likely boost to earnings from currency tailwinds alongside an 'attractive' entry point in valuation terms. Foremost, they highlighted the company's sustainable cost advantage versus peers and then went on to explain how introduction of an online 'Click and Collect' model might boost the firm's margins and sales. As for the impact from currency swings, the Swiss broker believed it would be premature to look for a positive impact from dollar weakness on the company's EBIT margins. "Currency impact is still to fully work through, mark-downs were abnormally low this year, Primark traditionally reinvests in price, and the US is still in investment phase," they said. However, those FX tailwinds would help when translating its Primark arm's profits from overseas into Sterling, which led the broker to bump up its 2016/18 estimates of retail by roughly 4%. Weakness in Sterling versus the single currency would also boost the company's sugar profits by 6%, it said. Finally, trading on about 29 times earnings, down from 40 times two years ago, Credit Suisse believed the present share price presented a "good" entry point given the ABF's structural growth story. Ahead of the firm's 11 September trading update, Credit Suisse raised its target price on ABF from 3,350p to 3,600p while reiterating its 'outperform' rating.

bookbroker: A good thing the Weston family most likely pay no attention to the share price, over their ownership in principal they have seen remarkable growth in the business of ABF, in all due respect to Primark in recent years, it is nice for them to know that they will continue to receive large dividends annually for the foreseeable future!

bookbroker: I comment on small cos. generally, and most likely a load of hogwash, but it is striking when you see the pressure that is reflected in the share price of large caps. like this and say EZJ. Different sectors completely but no business/conglomerate is immune to the stresses of today's business environment, particularly margin pressure as a result of numerous factors! Getting to the point though is the general markdowns in valuation, it is certainly making investing these days very difficult unless you are really in for the long haul, I mean like BT.A recently, and the loss of capital that can result due to weak trading statements, etc.

philanderer: Primark to debut in Milan Clothing retailer nicknamed Primarni plans three stores in Italy with first branch in home of Armani, Prada and Versace HTTP://www.execreview.com/2015/07/primark-to-debut-in-milan/ Telegraph market report: The decision of discount fashion retailer Primark to venture into the Italian market next year helped Associated British Foods add 149p, or 5.1pc, to its share price, closing at £30.80. In a trading statement, the FTSE 100 company said its earnings expectations for the year were unchanged. Primark is also due to open its first store in the United States in September. Darren Shirley, of Shore Capital, said he expects the stock to trade flat after yesterday’s update, but sees “scope for outperformance over the forthcoming couple of months as market excitement around the US store debut feeds into the share price”.
