FTSE 100: Next shares climb on improved outlook

Recommended Posts

Despite what many are warning will be a difficult winter for consumers, FTSE 100-listed retailer Next plc has raised its outlook for the full-year.

Next Q3 numbers

The High Street retailer Next PLC has published a third quarter (Q3) trading statement today, and in it it's announced an improved forecast for full-year (FY) pretax profits up 2.1% to £840 million.

Let's take a look at the numbers in that update this morning. The FTSE 100-listed business said that full price sales were up 0.4% compared to this time last year. That was slightly ahead of expectations, but broken down, the online sales were down 0.3%, while its sales for its shops rose 3.1%.

The sales increase was given a lift by one strong week, according to the company, at the end of September, when temperatures dropped and sales of autumn clothing started to climb.

Next share price

Let's take a look at the share price reaction. At one point this morning, it was the best performer from the FTSE 100. You can quite clearly see this rise that we've got in the markets here at the moment. The stock is now up 2.5%.

Now, the big question is, can this positivity continue? If it does, when we get a candle close beyond the 5195, which is the level of resistance just above it.

The next line to watch out for is then this line up here, which was the low point we had back in June this year at 5575, that's a long way off. But the company will have to continue to impress analysts with further publication of good results over the all-important Christmas and New Year period I think, to sustain the share price at these sort of levels.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
