FTSE LIVE: JD Sports increases sales and profit; Card Factory stumbles when pedestrians fall; British stocks in the green
- JD Sports said that sales increased by nearly 50% last year, while profits increased by 15%
- Card Factory's turnover was dented by higher costs and lower visitor numbers
The ever-popular JD Sports, which is going to buy rival Footasylum, said today that its sales have increased nearly 50 percent last year.
With less success in the High Street, however, it is a prize winner with ticket sales, Card Factory, where last year's profits fell by 8 percent, thanks to higher costs and lower visitor numbers.
After a relatively moderate day on Monday, the footsie in green opened on Tuesday, a handful of points up to 7,447.57.
