This week's show has a retail theme. Helal Miah from The Share Centre looks at decent results from the supermarket chain, Morrisons, which is now well into a three-year recovery. We've also had an update from Associated British Foods - its Primark chain is doing well but the firm's sugar division has been hit a supply glut. Looking ahead we should hear from Ocado next week. The big question will be whether the online grocer can announce any more technology deals with overseas supermarket chains.
