These FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) shares might not be the cheapest. But if you're looking to make big returns, Royston Wild reckons they're worth a serious look.
These two FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE:UKX) stocks are long-term market outperformers... and are trading at bargain prices, says G A Chester.

The FTSE 100 index lost 0.7 percent on its worst day in a month, but the midcaps gained 0.4 percent with gold miner Centamin leading gains after a strong quarterly update. The blue chips, which had touched a near seven-month high in the last session, lagged European markets where strong earnings from the likes of SAP and Credit Suisse kept a lid on losses. Bellwethers Shell and BP dropped from multi-month highs as crude prices retreated after having jumped to their 2019 highs this week as the United States pushed to tighten sanctions against Iran.
Here are two of my top picks for a beginner's FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) stock portfolio. Read on to find out what they are and why.
It reported flat adjusted earnings per share of 61.1 pence for the 24 weeks to March 24 with a near wiping out of profit from its sugar operation offset by growth in its other businesses. "No further year-on-year decline in the second half and then we would expect to see improvement into next year," Chief Executive George Weston told Reuters. Europe's sugar industry is going through a period of restructuring as it seeks to meet the challenges of low prices in a liberalised market.
In 2005 George Weston was appointed CEO of Associated British Foods plc (LON:ABF). This report will, first, examine the CEO compensation levels in comparison to CEO compensation at other big companies. Then we'll look at...

Babcock, a key supplier to Britain's ministry of defence, said on Wednesday Cairnie will assume the role on Turner's retirement at the annual general meeting on July 18. Turner's resignation in January came amid a decline in Babcock's share price and company warnings that income from nuclear decommissioning would fall sharply.
Farmers in western Europe have begun sugar beet planting, with first indications pointing to a drop in area for the next harvest after a price slump fuelled by the end of European Union production quotas. The market downturn has prompted Europe's biggest sugar refiner Suedzucker to announce the closure of several factories by 2020, which could lead farmers in affected zones to make further cuts to beet planting next year. This year's expected decline in planting should curb EU production and help to turn a global sugar surplus that has been pressuring prices into a net deficit, analysts say.

The FTSE 100 closed 0.1 percent higher, lagging other major European bourses where investors took comfort from U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to delay raising tariffs on Chinese imports. Lloyd's of London insurer Hiscox, which recently joined the FTSE 100, added 3 percent after reporting a profit for the year that beat market expectations. The pound gained after European Council President Donald Tusk said delaying Brexit beyond the planned March 29 exit date would be a "rational solution" as there was no majority in the British parliament to approve a divorce deal.
It is "unbelievable" the British government is contemplating leaving the European Union next month without a deal to smooth its exit, the finance chief of Associated British Foods, one of Britain's biggest food producers, said on Monday. With only 32 days until Britain is due to leave the European Union, Britain's parliament is deeply split over how, or even whether, the country should leave the bloc. AB Foods owns the Primark fashion chain and food brands such as Ovaltine, Ryvita, Twinings and Jordans.
Primark-owner Associated British Foods PLC (ABF.LN) said Monday that it expects to report flat first-half adjusted earnings on sales that are forecast to grow in all of its divisions apart from the sugar segment. For the six months ending March 2, the food-processing and retail group said it expects adjusted earnings per share to be in line with the year-earlier period, with a small decline in adjusted operating profit offset by lower financial expenses. Sales at clothing-retail business Primark are expected to rise 4%, due to an increase in retail space, the company said.
