7-Eleven: expanding at a cost

7-Eleven has announced a Q4 net loss of $11.5 million compared to a gain of $17.1 million for Q4 2001. Despite this, the outlook for the company remains strong for 2003. As it continues to improve efficiency and expand, 7-Eleven must take care not to stretch resources too thinly.

Abbey National: going back to the future

Abbey National likes to use the slogan 'because life is complicated enough'. Life certainly seems complicated for the UK bank at the moment, as it searches for a new CEO, refocuses on its core mortgage and savings business, and is the subject of takeover rumors.

Aberdeen/Yeoman: a splitting headache

The market downturn has caused split capital trusts to collapse, with no end in sight to the bad news. The effect has been exacerbated as many split capitals borrowed money to invest in each other's shares, now creating a downward spiral.

Adidas/Nike: scoring with World Cup sponsorship.

Nike and Adidas' sponsorship of the World Cup has proved successful, increasing sales and boosting Adidas' entry into the valuable US market. However, the 'upset' nature of this year's competition indicates how much of a gamble sports sponsorship can be.

AES: cutbacks could hurt future growth

AES' languishing share price in the wake of Enron has forced it to scale back its growth plans. This is unfortunate, given that one of the long-term strengths of the company is its involvement in developing markets. If this situation continues, more US utilities may have to sell out to cash-rich foreign companies - as seen in Centrica's acquisition of NewPower.

AG Barr: strong growth in 2009/10 sales gives hope to firms in the industry

AG Barr expects sales for 2009/10 to reach GBP220m, with profits also set to increase. The group has performed well despite difficult conditions in a category that continues to be maligned due to health concerns. Soft drinks remain affordable and occasional treats in the eyes of consumers, and this success further shows that companies in the sector can still prosper during recession.
