It's a little like when you listen to the "good news stories" on the TV and radio. Irrespective of how good the news is they always have to end it with a BUT !

I don't think there are many idiots presenting CNBC's key shows. As I read the TU, ABF has had a good half. It is however confirming guidance for the year, not increasing it. Specifically on Sterling currency weakness it comments that most of the translation benefit is now in (because sterling weakened in June 2016, part way through 2HFY16), so there won't be so much translation benefit to come YoY in the 2HFY17 results. On transaction exposure though, it comments that hedges for 2HFY17 have been put on at less favourable rates than for 1HFY17, hence the pressure on margins in Primark. Looking ahead, everything else being equal (which of course it won't be), as ABF gets into FY18 YoY translational gains can be expected to be minimal (because 1H FY17 was already at the lower sterling levels) whereas Primark margin pressure can perhaps be expected to increase (because 1HFY18 hedges are likely to be at worse rates than 1HFY17).

The idiot who picked that bit of negativity out obviously hadn't read the entire document. Had he or she done so then it would be clear that the huge improvements elsewhere in the business will far outweigh any minor falls in one sector.

CNBC would as they are still banging on the Brexit agenda. Maybe ABF should process more in the UK then. I would also think the gain on exports and translation of overseas profits in sterling outweighs this.

"the full effect of sterling weakness against the US dollar on Primark's purchases will result in a greater margin decline in the second half because our currency hedges were at more advantageous exchange rates in the first half" This was the bit picked out by CNBC this morning.
