Any reason for it not to go back to 3000?

GRG and KGF are my favourite retailers, great hopes for both longer term. Phil knows GRG very well. ABF- pristine balance sheet, cash generative food business, Primark arguably offers a nice longer term growth opportunity, just a case of how much you are willing to pay in terms of multiple.

The forward PE is just under 23X. That is still a pretty rich valuation in my book. In 2012 ABF was available under 15x forward. What you are seeing looks mainly sector rotation.

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!

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.

This is really beginning to look ugly. Anyone have TA support levels?, getting a little tempted.

Market report: ...retailers came under pressure after Morgan Stanley warned 2017 could be “a very tough” year for the sector. Geoff Ruddell, of Morgan Stanley, said: “We see a plausible scenario where 2017 could be as tough for the retailers as the 2008-9 recession.” Shares in Associated British Foods tumbled 45p to £23.86, Tesco shed 3.2p to 194.6p, Next fell 56p to £38.30, Debenhams slipped 0.5p to 52.6p and Marks & Spencer ended the day down 4.4p at 335.5p.

Would be a great addition to the ABF stable should they get it for the right price.

Hi Phil, added 3 lots of GRG today so far, just had another few. On ABF, well it's a fantastic company, just see the price as a little high atm, you pay for quality in fairness and this is unlikely to ever be cheap- provided the Primark growth story keeps rolling on. Regret not adding DGE yesterday, this was a key set of results for the CEO today, lots of promises and now they may finally be delivering.
