    AB Foods' sugar outlook soured by lower EU prices

    Results drive sharp moves in European stocks as euro weighs

    European shares dipped on Thursday as a bond market sell-off and a stronger euro took the steam out of the breakneck New Year rally in equities. The pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX) and euro zone equities (.STOXXE) ended the session 0.3 percent lower, extending sharp losses in the previous session when jitters over a report that China was considering slowing purchases of U.S. Treasury bonds spilled over into stocks. While the STOXX was roughly flat for most of the morning session, the index dipped followed the release of minutes from the European Central Bank's December meeting showing that the ECB should revisit its policy message in early 2018.

Once a venerable British institution, M&S faces unrelenting competition on the high street and online, while efforts to revitalise its 134-year-old business are being held back by a squeeze on consumers as inflation rises and wage growth falters. “I would describe the consumer as quite fragile and quite volatile and if there’s a reason not to spend they take it,” M&S Chief Executive Steve Rowe told reporters.

    Contrasting fortunes for UK retailers over key Christmas period

    Tesco has enjoyed its best Christmas since 2010, a detail packed with symbolism, as that was its last under Sir Terry Leahy, the chief executive who turned the company into the world's second-largest retailer and whose departure heralded several years of turmoil.
