[…]Earlier on Wednesday, a survey showed consumer confidence suffered its sharpest fall in over a year in December, even as other data showed both job placements and wages rising.M&S said underlying UK sales growth was nearer 2 percent adjusting for the fact that the comparable period the previous year included an extra day of the post-Christmas clearance sale.[….]

Attenzione, perchè M&S non è un titolo qualunque , ma è probabilmente il più importante del settore retail Europa , il punto di riferimento per misurare la tenuta dei consumi.
E sarà interessante anche in chiave futura vedere la reazione del mercato a risultati più o meno in linea con quelli previsti dagli analisti, ma con previsioni caute per il 2010 .

In questo momento M&S fa – 5% , in ogni caso vediamo come si evolverà la giornata.
