Hedge funds have significantly stepped up bets against Britain's traditional high street retailers, as the sector struggles with online competition, worries about a stretched consumer and weakening sales and profits. The risks were on full display on Tuesday when shares in Debenhams (DEB.L) slid more than 3 percent to an eight-year low following a weak trading update and a warning on UK sales. Britain's upcoming exit from the European Union, an inconclusive general election, and worrying data on consumer spending have muddied the outlook for bricks-and-mortar retailers like Debenhams, Marks & Spencer (MKS.L) and Next (NXT.L), whose share prices have fallen this year.
Fears over U.K. consumer confidence has grown after one of the U.K.'s top retailers warned of a volatile trading environment, sending retail stocks down.
