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.

All these broker notes are just toilet paper, a few were calling 3700p last year, most should be locked up in The Tower until they get a call right! Looking at a bit of bottom fishing this quarter but will avoid for now with trouble brewing in the Middle East Trump & Putin itchy fingers near the buttons, outlook appears troubling for markets I feel.

Barclays note... Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) has trimmed its target price for Associated British Foods PLC (LON:ABF) (ABF) to 3,330p from 3,380p but said it remains confident in its growth prospects for the company’s clothing arm Primark. In a note to clients, the British bank said results from the FTSE 100 food and clothing retailer for the half-year “may not prove a catalyst as such, but we certainly expect steadier news flow and commentary starting with confidence around an H2 [second-half] margin recovery at Primark (with the group currently sitting on favourable FX tailwinds – possibly ahead of current guidance). “We expect few surprises with the results due 17 April, with the group having provided a detailed pre close (26 Feb). Poor weather in March in the UK / Europe has been well documented in recent retail reporting, and we account for this in our estimates (FY LFL at Primark moves from -1.1% to -1.4%). We believe this only has a limited bearing on the FY group outlook,” the bank added. Barclays was also upbeat about the potential growth of Primark: “We also expect to gain comfort on the prospects for Primark’s business on the [European] continent as well as the midterm outlook for Sugar. We do not rule out growing confidence in the proof of concept for Primark US through the course of H2, with the likelihood of a further roll-out soon thereafter. “Based on our Food division valuations (9.1x CY18E EBITDA), we estimate Primark trades on 8.7x CY18E EBITDA, a 32% discount to Inditex (or a 3% discount to low-growth Next). Inditex is structurally higher margin / return vs Primark. However, Primark is one-fifth the size of Inditex outside of their respective domestic markets, or in only 12 countries vs 96 at Inditex. This implies Primark’s scope for long-term space growth (in CE alone) should be considerably greater.” proactiveinvestors.co.uk

Yes , a much needed bounce :-) Market report... Primark owner Associated British Foods climbed 79p to £25.02 on the prospect of the dollar dump on currency markets boosting its future earnings. Primark sources its clothing from Asia in US dollars but then sells most of it in Europe and the UK, knocking its income when the euro and pound are weak. Morgan Stanley argued in an upgrade that this forex headwind will soon become a tailwind when the effect of the two currencies strengthening against the greenback feeds through. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/03/28/market-reportunilever-shares-surge-hopes-deal/

In the world of the consumer, B&Q owner Kingfisher (down 8.5p to 288.2p), Primark owner AB Foods (down 57p to £23.89) and retailer Next (down 109p to £48.75) were laggards. The reaction was likely down to there being only a small rise in unsecured consumer credit from high street banks, which was up by 0.8pc compared to a year earlier, according to data from trade body UK Finance. That number was an improvement from the 0.6pc rise in January although still suggests consumers 
are being cautious about what they spend, something which is being borne out by the growing number of casualties on the high street from Carpetright through to restaurant groups including Prezzo and Jamie’s Italian. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/03/26/market-reportfresnillo-shines-analyst-upgrade/

It looks like the alarmist headlines predicting doom and gloom for Next have given their shares a healthy boost of over 3.5% so far ! I'd take that for ABF today ;-) Edit .... Next now up 4.6% !!
