Yes , happy to hold here :-) European rivals will outstrip UK high street giants, warns Moody's Moody's has warned that British retailers will be outstripped by their European rivals next year as disposable incomes are squeezed by slowing wage growth and a return of inflation. Despite robust retail sales growth this year the credit rating agency has warned it expects high street bellwethers Next and Marks & Spencer to suffer from “anaemic growth or even a contraction of earnings” next year. Analysts at the credit rating agency predict these retailers will “continue to face a challenge to retain their market shares and maintain profitability levels against the combined onslaught of a broad range of competitors, including value-focused Primark, international fast fashion retailers like H&M and Zara, relatively new but rapidly growing names such as Superdry and online specialists Asos, Boohoo and Missguided.” In its study of European retailers, seen by The Daily Telegraph, only the UK retail names are listed as losers for next year. Debenhams, House of Fraser, B&Q owner Kingfisher, Marks & Spencer, New Look and Next are all predicted to have negative earnings.

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.
