In other news ………;.. Clothing chain Primark expected to report resilient sales, bucking the trend of High Street gloom Clothing chain Primark is expected to report resilient sales figures later this month, bucking the trend of high street gloom. Its next trading statement may even outshine its Christmas performance, according to City analysts. Brokers at Jefferies said Primark could increase profits in the six months to March by as much as 25 per cent to £425 million. It said the chain could also have been lifted by better weather and solid performances in the US, Italy, France and Poland. The broker added that Primark could also benefit from a 'rational completion of Brexit' and a subsequent recovery in sterling that would make imports relatively cheaper.

Morning EI My caution would be similar to most I guess - everything rides on when you invest/invested, my focus/comments have been based on the value which was North of £33.30+ just 15/16 months ago If you divide the business into two Primark then the rest = the rest is fairly dreadful with Primark being the driving force for the past ten years or so, this is the reason ABF have never split the business as without Primark there is no viable business The issue that I believe is that they have with too many eggs in one basket, with that side of the business having too consistently over perform & it isn't Some of this is out of their hands with Brexit, the decline of the High Street etc, factors like Ethics & sustanability will always make volume retailers a target for bad press & in house decision making In house decision making - Some great some questionable France = incredible success Germany = dreadful - believed their own hype & opened too many huge stores too close to each other & the Germans have a huge issue with Primarks Ethics Poland = not opened yet .....even though a recent report shows strong trading there! will be a huge success in my opinion - new market = massive opportunity USA = PR stunt, too go where others have failed! Huge loss maker, cutting back plans & footage to suit the reality of the US customer, may work long term however at a cost, not sure income will outweigh investment UK - there will be massive coverage of landmark stores this year the Bluewater & Birmingham will be surrounded with huge hype however the fact is that Like for Like sales have been in decline for 12 months Spain = great success with another Flagship in Barcelona on the way Online - 2020 click & collect (from stores only) 20 years behind the times & will cost a fortune to implement something that customers don't want Summary = I would be cautious as the drop over the recent time period has been dramatic & out of line with FSTE & I'm not sure if/when the price gets back to the £33/£34 mark & if/when it does it will be down to 'the rest' performing & not Primarks growth 'You pay your money & takes your chance!'

'Primark won't easily surrender its position as the face of fast fashion with market share growing' Fast fashion's poster child has survived a bout of bad publicity courtesy of MPs on the Environmental Audit Committee to post a solid set of numbers.

Associated British Foods fears overdone, says Jefferies Signs point to investor fears of a rebasing of earnings at Associated British Foods (ABF), warns Jefferies. Analyst James Grzinic retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £28 on the shares, which jumped 7% to £23.30 yesterday. ‘A price/earnings at the low end of history, trough 2018/19 sugar earnings, and peak net cash balances suggest investors are fearing an earnings rebasing to come at ABF,’ he said. But he argued yesterday’s update showed those fears were ‘overdone’ and ‘encouragingly, Primark continues to add ample market share in the UK, and to trade strongly in markets which represent the core of its growth opportunity over the next five years’ HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-whitbread-gvc-and-experian/a1192281?section=funds-insider&_ga=2.210367573.119934499.1547811627-1331912547.1547811627#i=5
