M&S Shares Surge by 20%


Shares in Marks & Spencer have surged by more than 20% after it raised its profit forecasts for the second time in less than three months.

M&S said it expects full-year profit to hit roughly £500m – a jump from its previous estimate of around £350m.

M&S’s improved performance was driven largely by food sales, which jumped 10.4pc in the first half as more people cooked at home during lockdowns. Its clothing line – historically its more troubled division – suffered from store closures, but revenue was down only 1pc.

Shares jumped as much as 21pc, hitting the highest level since 2019, before falling back to gains of 16pc.

However, it warned that it was hard to “unravel” the continued impact of the pandemic on higher sales, adding that supply chain troubles and cost inflation posed a threat.
