Why is Associated British Foods struggling on strong Primark performance? Associated British Foods (ABF) continues to reap the rewards from shopping phenomenon Primark. Adjusted operating profit is expected to rise yet investors are focusing on the underperforming groceries division. Grocery revenues are expected to be level with last year, but adjusted operating profit is anticipated to be lower in the year to 30 September 2017. The news has acted as a drag on the stock, down 3.6% to £31.51. Margins at Allied Bakeries are suffering as a ‘very competitive UK bread market’ and inflationary cost pressures hit margins. WHY IS PRIMARK PERFORMING WELL? Liberum analyst Robert Waldschmidt says Primark’s full year margins in 2018 are expected to be similar to the prior year. He flags that strong demand and favourable weather has increased demand and reduced markdowns, helping to offset the impact of the weaker pound against the US dollar. Sales at Primark for the year to 16 September 2017 are expected to rise 13% when currency fluctuations are stripped out thanks to increase retail selling space. Operating profit is expected to rise to £1.4bn in the year to 30 September 2018 and £1.56bn in 2019. The company currently trades on 21.8 times forecast earnings per share for 2018.

So that's why then ... Primark owner Associated British Foods fell 162p to 3,103p although the company upped its full-year outlook. AB Foods now expects full-year sales at Primark to rise 13 per cent on a constant currency basis, with the UK seeing particularly strong turnover growth of 10 per cent. However, investors were disappointed with a warning that the pound's collapse was pushing up import costs for the low-cost retailer Read more: HTTP://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/markets/article-4871900/MARKETS-LIVE-London-shares-positive-start.html#ixzz4sOwfoyOK

The Share Centre: The shares were down 1.8% in early trading this morning, but are up by over 30% since the end of January. We continue to recommend Associated British Foods as a ‘hold' for medium risk investors as the longer term growth prospects for Primark remain sound, there is increasing global demand for food and there are signs of improvement in the sugar business.

The company is "well ahead of last year", according to Hargreaves Lansdown analyst George Salmon. He added on what the results mean for the rest of the struggling high street: "The UK has been singled out as performing particularly strongly, which would normally have positive read-across for the rest of the clothing sector. However, this probably isn’t the case this time. "We feel Primark’s good domestic performance is more a sign the UK consumer is tightening the purse strings and moving down the value chain as inflation outstrips wage growth."

Davy Stockbrokers: DAVY VIEW Associated British Foods (ABF) has released a positive pre-close trading update. The statement is broadly consistent with the Q3 update except for a stronger-than-expected margin performance at Primark and healthier net cash position for the group of £650m (Davy: £331m). We expect no material change to our forecasts. Overall, earnings momentum remains positive at ABF. HTTPS://www.davy.ie/research/public/article.htm?id=ST2_1774_1.xml.htm

AJ Bell Investment Director Russ Mould.... “Associated British Foods expects full-year adjusted operating profit to be well ahead of last time. Markdowns at its clothing chain Primark have been lower than expected and like-for-like sales have increased. Profit margins, though, have been squeezed due to the stronger US dollar and higher costs and ABF’s shares were down by over 1% in early trading.

- Associated British Foods expects adjusted operating profit to be well ahead of last year. In its third quarter update in July the group reported an improvement in its expectation for the full year underlying operating performance as a result of a stronger profit delivery from Primark. But a pre-close update today said that since then it had experienced an even lower level of markdown which had further improved the full year outlook. It said: "Net interest expense will be at a similar level to last year and, as previously explained, an increase in other financial expense will reflect the impact of last year's fall in bond yields on our UK defined benefit pension scheme. "The underlying tax rate for the full year will be slightly lower than that of the first half and, as expected, will be higher than last year which benefited from the revaluation of UK deferred tax liabilities following the announced reductions in the UK corporation tax rate. "In summary, we expect to report good growth in adjusted operating profit and adjusted earnings per share for the group for the full year."
