My trouble with AB Food shares is that whilst I understand flour mills, I don’t understand Primark!

My personal pension fund did alright last year, mainly because I had a decent amount of commodity and tobacco investments, the firm dollar helped more than hindered and when the world markets got volatile I embraced it rather than ran away into a load of cash. Obviously, as with every year as an actual investor, I bogged plenty of things up too. Back in early September, I said I was going to be “still leaving Associated British Foods (ABF) to the experts”. Initially that worked out alright as the 1400p share price it was became more like a 1200p one. By contrast, today though it is north of 1800p.


Until Associated British Foods spins-off Primark it is going to remain an avoid for me

Back in September last year I asked the question “is Associated British Foods (ABF) cheap or boring?”. My answer back then was the latter and since then the stock has fallen a further 15% to a share price level last seen in late 2012. So should we buy shares in the diversified international food, ingredients and retail (including Primark) group following its 24 weeks ended 5th March 2022 numbers out earlier today?
