    Britain's FTSE inches higher, shrugging off trade tensions

    The UK's top share index rose on Friday, shrugging off any worries over global trade after U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods took effect. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.2 percent at 7,617.70 points at its close, while mid caps (.FTMC) were flat in percentage terms. The U.S. imposed tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese imports, with Beijing saying it had no choice but to respond in kind.

    Primark lifts profit forecast due to fewer markdowns

    Primark says profits will be better than expected in its current financial year because it has escaped the worst of the discounting frenzy forced upon many competitors. The retailer's parent firm painted a rosy picture for Primark sales, while fashion rival Superdry also joined it in recording a strong trading performance amid the struggles facing much of the wider high street in the UK. Primark's trading update for the first 40 weeks of its financial year to 23 June showed total sales 6% ahead of the same period last year - with UK sales said to be performing well with like-for-like growth.

    Sugar outlook sours for Primark-owner AB Foods as prices fall

    Britain's Associated British Foods (ABF.L) warned that lower European Union prices would hit profit in its sugar business, sending shares in the owner of the Primark fashion chain sharply lower on Thursday. AB Foods stuck to its overall forecast for "progress" in adjusted operating profit and adjusted earnings per share (EPS) for the year to September 2018, saying the sugar weakness would be offset by higher margins at Primark, which accounts for about half of its revenue and profit. Shares in AB Foods, which also owns major grocery, agriculture and ingredients businesses, fell as much as 5.7 percent, the biggest faller on Britain's FTSE 100 index.
