Alt Text Next Retailer warns rising costs and changing shopping habits could threaten high street stores One-Minute Read Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 10:57am Next's shares have rallied strongly in an otherwise flat market this morning, despite the clothing and homeware retailer reporting its first fall in profits since the financial crisis. Pre-tax profit dropped 5.5 per cent from £836.1m to £790.2m last year, says the BBC , and there were also warnings over trading conditions for this year and, in some areas, the next decade. Nevertheless, the retailer's share price jumped more than six per cent to £41.24, the highest it has been since mid-January. This is mostly attributable to Next's strong balance sheet, which means it has been able to announce a final-year dividend of 105p per share, says the Financial Times . It has also maintained full-year investor distributions in line with 2015, at 158p.

After Russia managed to hack the servers of the Democratic National Committee and spread fake news on an industrial scale, his warnings were finally recognized as all too prescient. But it is only over the past weeks, as journalists around the world have broken dozens of stories about Russian meddling in the democratic process, that the sheer scale of this effort has become apparent.

To be fair, Trump doesnt really have a North Korea policy yet. Tillerson stressed repeatedly that a comprehensive policy review is underway and that the purpose of his trip to Asia was to hear out the North’s neighbors. How much he was able to do that is questionable. South Korea has only an interim government these days, since its president was forced out of office because of a scandal. China, North Korea’s economic lifeline, has a longstanding dialogue-based agenda that Washington is familiar with but has never shown much interest in. On the other hand, Tillerson did raise some eyebrows with a few tough-sounding warnings. While in Seoul, he said “everything was on the table,” including military intervention or even a pre-emptive strike if tougher sanctions or other diplomatic measures fail to achieve Washington’s goals. Tone matters Some policy experts in the U.
