ABF is one of those shares that I don't worry about in my SIPP. It has a nice broad spread of profitable companies that help generate decent dividends for me each year. 2950p would be good but only when I am looking to convert my SIPP to cash. Until then keep sending the dividends over :-)

From HL article earlier today..... Some economists have said the figures demonstrated that consumers were not fazed by the imminent Brexit deadline, while “others have said consumer spending also got a lift from the heatwave in July, and were sceptical that consumers would keep spending as much, as the 31 October Brexit deadline moved closer” reports The Guardian. The answer, as usual, appears to be somewhere in between. “To be sure, there were a couple of special factors that explain why spending, after a bumper June, was again solid in July,” says Larry Elliott in The Guardian. “That said, though, there are also underlying reasons why spending is holding up” he adds, citing record employment and faster wage growth. Whatever the reason, “shoppers spent so vigorously last month that the economy is set to return to growth, dodging recession despite the pressure from the US-China trade war and the risk of a ‘no deal’ Brexit”, says Tim Wallace in The Daily Telegraph. While the surge in retail sales relied in part on heavy discounting and food sales slipped and household goods shops also struggled, “nonetheless the overall improvement in sales indicates the strong jobs market and rising incomes are giving the economy more support, boosting domestic demand even as exports struggle and businesses hold off investment in the face of intense political uncertainty”, he adds.

“Retail sales were markedly stronger-than-expected in June as volumes rose 1.0% month-on-month. This was a much better performance than had been indicated by soft June surveys from the CBI and the British Retail Consortium and followed month-on-month declines in both May (0.5%) and April (0.3%),” commented Howard Archer, the chief economic advisor to the EY ITEM Club. “Non-food sales led the way in June with volumes rising 1.7% month-on-month in June with a decent gain in sales of textiles, clothing and footwear (1.2%) which was helped by sales and also reflected a bounce-back after a marked fall the previous month. Sales of household goods rose 1.9%,” he added. “Consumers have clearly been more resilient than most other sectors of the economy and have seemingly largely brushed off Brexit concerns – no doubt helped by the overall improvement in their spending power since mid-2018 as well as record-high employment,” Archer suggested.

Primark beats High Street slump and steps up its US invasion Primark on Thursday defied the slump in the clothes sector and the chaos on the high street as it unveiled rising sales and widened its attack on the US market. The fast-fashion retailer is to open three US stores, including one on a prime piece of retail estate on State Street in Chicago, taking the total to 12. John Bason, finance director of Primark’s parent AB Foods, said the US expansion was “considered” but put no limit on Primark’s US ambitions. There is a long and painful history of UK retailers flopping in America, most notably Tesco and Marks & Spencer. Bason said these failures are “etched on my forehead” but insisted Primark has a strong niche and no obvious direct competition. “We’ve got a model,” he said. “There is nobody quite like us.” The City seems to agree. Darren Shirley at Shore Capital said the new stores are “a clear sign of growing confidence in the US opportunity, an opportunity we believe is not being reflected in ABF’s valuation”.

Nicholas Hyett, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: "Primark continues to deliver a very impressive performance in a tough retail environment without the aid of the online businesses that’s keeping most retailers’ necks above water. Offering shoppers value for money when rivals are struggling has seen Primark seize market share in the UK, and the proposition is proving attractive overseas too, with a reasonable performance in Europe and promising noises emerging from the fledgling US business. "The retail performance is unfortunately being soured by the struggling sugar operations, where the end of quotas has seen sugar prices plummet. The good news is that conditions seem to be stabilising. Throw in a good performance from ABF’s branded groceries business, which includes Twinings, Ovaltine and balsamic vinegar brand Acetum, and it looks like the rest of the sprawling empire might finally be set to support rather than undermine the success on the high street.” HTTPS://www.sharecast.com/news/market-report-midday/london-midday-stocks-remain-subdued-in-quiet-trade-burberry-bounces-higher-on-upgrade--6792732.html

A pledge by Boris Johnson to launch a review into the so-called sin taxes on products high in salt, fat and sugar if he wins the contest for leader are likely to boost shares in UK drinks makers, ABFoods, Fevertree, AG Barr and Britvic. Some dealers see the shares rising as he would look into whether or not the levies "unfairly hit those on lower incomes" even amid pressure to put taxes on high salt and fat content.
