Must be after that award of £5m shares to the finance director designate today #shocked

"Grant of conditional award"

I hope that one of the conditions are that he doubles the share price within the next twelve months ;-)

I hope they put their foot to the floor with their share buy back scheme.

Have any figures been released recently as to how far though that process we are?

Trading ahead, yet only up in line with the market. Hopefully broker upgrades and a bit of a tailwind will help push this much higher over the next few weeks.

there's no way this would survive as a conglomerate in this form without the controlling shareholder.

Lack of focus? We must be looking at different companies called ABF ;-)

For clairity .... details of the diverse one that I am posting about are here :-

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Associated British Foods plc (ABF) is a British multinational food processing and retailing company headquartered in London, England.

Its ingredients division is the world's second-largest producer of both sugar and baker's yeast and a major producer of other ingredients including emulsifiers, enzymes and lactose.

Its grocery division is a major manufacturer of both branded and private label grocery products and includes the brands Mazola, Ovaltine, Ryvita, Jordans and Twinings.

Its retail division, Primark, has some 384 stores across several countries, predominantly Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, and the UK. ACH Food Companies is an American subsidiary.

Associated British Foods is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

it's more a family wealth vehicle than a business focused on shareholder returns IMV.

i think each business unit is run very well, but it has an overall lack of focus on shareholder returns - they should have been buying as much stock as the market would offer when the price dropped below £15. an activist would have a field day pulling apart the idea of putting all these different assets together but they're protected from that scrutiny by the family control.

ABF are a well run, profitable and diverse organisation with decent cash reserves.

At £20 the shares are undervalued IMHO A steady rise back up to £25 over the next twelve months would be very acceptable ;-)

it's no longer the bargain it was at about 7.5 x EBIT, but still reasonable value at about 12 x EBIT IMV. sentiment seems to be on a bit of an upswing at the moment and ABF is generally considered sensitive to a downturn or upturn. i've never understood that, it's a very steady performer throughout the cycle, yet despite that has seen pretty wild swings in valuation this year.

J777j nobody forces you to go in their shops or buy their products.


Given the continued profits and growth that they have been generating over the years I think they know a little bit more about running a business and making money than you do.


Nevertheless, thank you for sharing your wisdom with us. I take it that you don't own any sharess in ABF.


Indeed some might smell a rat and think that you are simply just an under pressure shorter. LMAO
