Next trading update on 10.09.18 with sterling now much lower against the dollar and euro there could be some benefit to ABF profit expressed in pounds.

Always wanting to increase tax, why not do something out of the box and remove business rates over time. Let them compete. Death of the high street argument - the best will survive, id much rather so for a trip out than being stuck behind a computer or mobile trying to order clothes or groceries. Long Primarni!

When people reference death of the High Street, the growing divergence in retail tends to be overlooked. It's the small local shopping streets that are being mostly hit, the large shopping centres are destination draws, the later always seem packed. Ultimately though the government will act, and that will be driven by tax revenue concerns. So an online tax of some sort.

Primark did a trial with ASOS about 5 years ago - did it work? They sold the stock.......however was it successful? Not successful enough to roll out an online offer, Primark business model has never & will never be geared to an online offer - margins are far too low, logistics, returns etc all cost too much to process Primark's success has been build on the number of new lines inputted into stores daily & encouraging frequent visits = increased spend the theory is you visit for the two items you want & buy a further six that you didn't realize you wanted! The diminishing footfall on the High Street will take its effect No doubt they have been & will remain the busiest stores on the High Street making them a bigger fish in a pond that is drying up rapidly

hxxps://www.marieclaire.co.uk/news/fashion-news/why-primark-dont-sell-online-525940 Where that leaves their longer term physical store model I'm not sure. Would hope there is still a place for it. In Birmingham they are closing a smaller outlet and opening a store about 4x as large.

Phil, was in Guildford HoF yesterday early afternoon and never seen the place so quiet. Primark has thrived in very tough times, online competition is growing though, however think it's FX that is weighing on sentiment atm. From memory ABF tested a small Primark online trial, their conclusion appeared to be they could sell product cheaper in store than competition could online.

Afternoon EI, yes plenty for the markets to worry about at the moment. This doesn't seem to be helping much today... 'Discounts and online help retail sales bounce back in July' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45206107

Hi Phil, my betting is there will be ample opportunities in the months ahead, so there is very little I would be tempted to buy atm. I'm often too cautious though, only fair to say.

Just GSK out of my twenty blue today. Portfolio just gone negative for 2018 @ -0.2% FTSE100 -2.5% FTSE250 - 2.0% Only one I'm adding to at the moment is RRS .

Gibbs, the UKX was a good deal lower, around 6500 from memory. ABF has grown earnings significantly since. If we hard Brexit and GBP goes in to full on crash mode, around £19 might just be possible on ABF, unlikely imv. What I would be more sure of is the days of 24/25x earnings look gone for sometime to come, priced for perfection on last year's multiple. Had 2 small lots today

So have I, not too sure about the bargain price though. Getting whacked on GBP weakness with Primark sourcing heavily from Asia, coupled with sugar weakness.

Primark is an incredible achievement. In terms of the US they are being eminently sensible in adopting a highly conservative expansion. And would expect no less, as the Weston family have a controlling stake in ABF.

I do LOL when I read the doom mongering posts of Queen Gibbs. Primark is a shining light on the high street and a magnet for customers in the UK and now more so overseas. Wake up and smell the coffee. Not all buyers want or can shop for what they need on-line. DYOR especially with respect to the potential growth in the US.

The share price has dropped 29% since October Primark growth is slowing as stated The USA stores aren't working anywhere near as expected Several key people have left The business rates are the business rates are only one reason the stores are being hurt The change of retail is driven by customers & their choice in how they spend If a business is arrogant enough to believe that they don't need multi channel retail then good luck to them .............it will be costly
