British online fashion retailer Boohoo forecast sales growth of 50 percent in its new financial year after a doubling of profit in 2016-17, resisting signs from other retailers that shoppers are turning cautious on spending. Recent official data, industry surveys and company comments, for example from Carpetright (Other OTC: CGHXF - news) and Costa Coffee owner Whitbread (Frankfurt: WHF4.F - news) on Tuesday, have indicated that Britons are starting to feel the strain of rising prices after last year's vote to leave the European Union sent the pound plunging. Boohoo, which sells own-brand clothing, shoes and accessories online to a core market of 16-24 year-olds, has been one of the best performing UK stocks over the last year, almost quadrupling in value.
