queen gibbs: 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

queen gibbs: ABF - overall the share price has dropped 30+% in recent times The group have relied on Primark's performance during that time This is a dangerous game to play in the current climate - the high street as a retail destination is dead & buried The lack of online presence was always down to ignorance/arrogance - this will bite hard & the 2020 vision of 'click & collect' is so dated it belongs in the ark! The leadership team & far & away not what it used to be & the retail DNA that always delivered has been lost, as several key figures are no longer in the business Interesting times ahead?

philanderer: Soc Gen is with you tl :-) "...Shares in Associated British Foods were sliding after it said profits were improving at its Primark clothing retail arm but its sugar business was being hit by lower prices. Analysts at Societe Generale said: "With full year guidance maintained, we expect little change to FY18 consensus EPS forecasts, although FY19 may come down to reflect the ongoing difficulties in Sugar. But on balance we expect the share price to react well to the changing profits mix and better news on Primark." HTTPS://uk.webfg.com/news/market-report-midday/london-midday--3381709.html

ed 123: Yes, brokers do seem keen. I noticed the disparity between the brokers' targets and the current share price. That had me looking into ABF. Maybe a trading opportunity at some point? Primark is the obvious driver. ABF is a curious mix of businesses. Could the brokers be looking at a possible split and valuing on a sum of the parts basis? High rating deserved by Primark? Other parts more mundane?

tlobs2: It looks like others read a different RNS to the one that I read. The one that I read was in the majority full of good positive news! Improvements in many areas of the business on improved margins and the share price goes down 3%. It's crazy.

philanderer: Primark's US expansion in doubt as Morgan Stanley downgrades AB Foods Primark's management regards its US pull-back as "fine-tuning" and remains committed to the US market, but MS now assumes no further expansion in the US in its base case Primark could become the latest successful UK retailer to come a cropper in the US, opined US investment bank heavyweight, Morgan Stanley. The bank is stripping out further Primark US expansion from its base case model on Associated British Foods plc (LON:ABF), the owner of Primark. As a result, the stock has been downgraded from ‘overweight217; to ‘equal weight’, with an increased price target of 3,100p, some 55p above the current AB Foods share price and 300p higher than Morgan Stanley’s previous target price. Morgan Stanley said it is struggling to identify positive catalysts for the share price on a 12-18 month horizon, “We have not given up on Primark eventually succeeding in the US, but now believe that it will be at least another 12-18 months before any further expansion is announced, and with Primark currently delivering c7% lfl [like-for-like] sales in the UK, and sales densities in Europe already extraordinarily high, we find it hard to see where incremental good news will come from in the coming months,” Morgan Stanley (MS) said. On the plus side, MS is increasing its sum-of-the-parts valuation of the group’s food division, which includes Twinings Ovaltine and Jordan Ryvita from around £3.7bn to roughly £5;.6bn. Nevertheless, Primark remains the key to AB Foods in MS’s view, and the retailer has not signed any new leases in the US for around 18 months and has announced plans to reduce the size of three of its eight stores in the US. proactiveinvestors.co.uk

philanderer: 'Credit Suisse raises ABF target price, highlights margins and valuation' (ShareCast News) - Analysts at Credit Suisse bumped up their target price for shares of Associated British Foods, highlighting the potential for the introduction of a 'Click and Collect' model and the likely boost to earnings from currency tailwinds alongside an 'attractive' entry point in valuation terms. Foremost, they highlighted the company's sustainable cost advantage versus peers and then went on to explain how introduction of an online 'Click and Collect' model might boost the firm's margins and sales. As for the impact from currency swings, the Swiss broker believed it would be premature to look for a positive impact from dollar weakness on the company's EBIT margins. "Currency impact is still to fully work through, mark-downs were abnormally low this year, Primark traditionally reinvests in price, and the US is still in investment phase," they said. However, those FX tailwinds would help when translating its Primark arm's profits from overseas into Sterling, which led the broker to bump up its 2016/18 estimates of retail by roughly 4%. Weakness in Sterling versus the single currency would also boost the company's sugar profits by 6%, it said. Finally, trading on about 29 times earnings, down from 40 times two years ago, Credit Suisse believed the present share price presented a "good" entry point given the ABF's structural growth story. Ahead of the firm's 11 September trading update, Credit Suisse raised its target price on ABF from 3,350p to 3,600p while reiterating its 'outperform' rating.
