    FTSE retreats as more drama hits UK retail

    British shares fell to a new 15-month low on Wednesday as Kingfisher (KGF.L) and Moss Bros (MOSB.L) piled more bad news on a UK retail industry reeling from the surge in e-commerce. Any end to the sustained squeeze on UK household incomes was not showing through in the retail industry on Wednesday, however.

    Primark-owner AB Foods sees margin boost from weaker dollar​

    Associated British Foods said profit margins at its Primark business are set to benefit from the recent weakness of the U.S. dollar versus the pound, given that the fashion chain sources the majority of its goods in dollars from the Far East. Primark, which trades from about 350 stores in Britain, continental Europe and the United States accounts for about half of AB Foods' revenue and profit. AB Foods said Primark's operating margin in the first half of its 2017-18 financial year would be close to that of the previous year, with better buying terms virtually offsetting the adverse effect of the U.S. dollar exchange rate.
