There are many, many great income shares dealing far too cheaply at present. In this article Royston Wild considers two of the greatest.
The founders of British fashion retailer SuperGroup (Frankfurt: 49S.F - news) , owner of the Superdry brand, have launched an incentive plan that would see them share their wealth with the firm's 4,500 employees - if its share price rises significantly. SuperGroup detailed the move, which forms part of its strategy to attract and retain talent, at its annual shareholders' meeting on Tuesday. The scheme, which runs to September 2020, would see Julian Dunkerton and James Holder, transfer into a trust 20 percent of their gain from any increase in the group's share price over 18 pounds ($23.9).
Donald Trump will have a chance to weigh in on North Korea at an 0830 GMT press conference in Warsaw with his Polish hosts today. Washington warned on Wednesday it was ready to use force to stop North Korea's nuclear missile program but said it preferred diplomacy against Pyongyang after it launched a ballistic missile that could hit Alaska. The question is whether Trump, who appears to have overestimated China's influence on this issue, will take a more belligerent tone.

SuperGroup (Frankfurt: 49S.F - news) , the British company behind the Superdry fashion brand, reported a 27 percent rise in annual revenue and said it would meet profit forecasts, helped by its overseas expansion and a weaker pound. The firm, whose trademark jackets, hooded tops and jogging bottoms are popular with teenagers and twenty-somethings, said on Thursday currency changes accounted for about one third of the revenue growth in both its retail and wholesale operations. Shares in the company, which have increased 31 percent over the last year, fell almost 7 percent on Thursday on the lack of a profit upgrade and declining margins.
John Lewis and Waitrose workers face a cut in their annual bonus this year despite an upturn in Christmas sales - as the retailers face a turbulent period ahead. Both brands are part of the employee-owned John Lewis Partnership, which last year awarded a bonus pool of £145m to its 91,500 staff - or more than £1,500 each. The John Lewis Partnership said the sector was under pressure from a shift to online shopping and the fall in the pound.
