Overall, Next (NXT) shares have performed well since our 2017 buy call (4,314p, 11 May 2017), but the stock slipped this morning on a lack of upgrades following an in-line set of annual figures. Factor in the continued struggle on the UK high street and perhaps investors are losing interest in the clothing chain? Total group sales increased 2.5 per cent over the last year to £4.2bn, while full price sales increased 3.1 per cent. A commendable performance against a difficult market, prompting analysts at Liberum to highlight Next’s strong balance sheet, good cash generation and well-covered dividend as further evidence of its defensive position. For now, our recommendation is under review.
Retail group Next has announced a 0.4% fall in full-year pre-tax profits from £726m to £723m on total group sales up 2.5% at £4.2bn. Full-price sales were up by 3.1% across the group and by 14.8% online. However, in-store full-price sales declined by 7.3%. The company says it has so far seen no trading effect from Brexit and has repeated its guidance for full-price sales growth of 1.7% and a 1.1% drop in pre-tax profits to £715m this year. Chief executive Lord Wolfson forecasts better times ahead for UK retailers, stating that "the prolonged period of real income squeeze appears to be coming to an end”.

Company Profile

Next is a relative newcomer to the UK retail market, having opened its first womenswear store in 1982. Within five months the group had 70 outlets open. In 1986 the group acquired mail order company Grattan and two years later launched its own directory business. With over 300 shops the group generates about three quarters of its revenue from its retail outlets. Almost all of the rest comes from its directory arm.
