Deutsche Bank upped its target price for Associated British Foods on the premise that it was set to continue benefiting from a consumer shift towards value driven by pressure on spending power. To back up its case, it pointed to the company's 13% sales growth over the 16 weeks to 24 June and data from Kantar showing a continued loss of market share by the largest mid-market retailers while Primark was gaining. Indeed, Primark had seen like-for-likes in the UK accelerate from growth of 2% during the first half to 6% during the third quarter. According to Kantar data, it was also still gaining market share despite not being in the online channel. Management was also succeeding in mitigating supply chain inflation as a result of the weker pound, Deutsche said. Analysts at the broker said that was "particularly encouraging" and that the benefits should roll into the first half of 2018, giving them "greater confidence" that margins could be rebuilt next year. Deutsche said it was also expecting significantly higher profits from sugar in the third quarter and for them to remain at their new level in 2018. Sharecast.com

UBS upgrading to BUY. tp. 3150p In spite of a strong write-up from UBS, Primark owner Associated British Foods did not move much. The Swiss bank said the share price has "overreacted to the first-half space slowdown" and so upgraded ABF to 'buy' from 'neutral' with a 3,150p target price that compare to Friday's close of 2,706p. UBS's analysis of Primark's potential to expand in Europe, examining how many households are within a half-hour drive of a store, suggest "circa 80% upside in store numbers in the UK/Europe, which should keep space contribution close to 10% for another 5-10 years", with gross margins also set to strengthen as foreign exchange pressures reverse.

If they couldn't compete before then why does this chump think that a joined slimmed down pairing will compete more?Primark have built a very good reputation that Asda or Sainsbury's can't compete with.Although they said the stores will stay open there will no doubt be several shops closing which will reduce competition in the UK not increase it. Beyond that the significant growth overseas will signal further strength for the brand.

Market report: Associated British Foods also rallied after it left its annual outlook unchanged as falling profit at the company’s sugar business offset the strength at its clothing chain to result in a 1% decline in first-half profit. "Investors appear to be giving the group a free pass on the numbers this morning, reasoning that better weather and an improvement in consumer spending could help cushion performance in coming months, even if some will continue to wonder why the firm bothers to hold on to its underperforming sugar business," said IG analyst Chris Beauchamp.
