Next plc has its roots in menswear business J Hepworth & Son, which was founded in Leeds in 1864. In 1981, Hepworth bought the chain of Kendall and Sons stores and converted them to the new Next brand. Hepworth stores then followed suit, and in 1986, the company changed its name to Next plc.

There was a period of turmoil in 1988, when NXT shares plunged as the business overstretched itself and chief executive George Davies was sacked. But by 1994, Next had opened its 300th store and was trading in 16 countries around the world. In 2008, the company acquired younger women’s fashion brand Lipsy. Next was named British High Street Retailer of the Year in 2009.

Today, Next operates through three divisions: Next Retail, a chain of 550+ retail branches in the UK; Next Directory, a home shopping catalogue and website with more than 3 million active customers, and Next International, with 180+ international stores. 

Its other businesses include Next Sourcing and Lipsy, which designs and sells its own branded younger women's fashion products through wholesale, retail and website channels.

The Next stock price has been rather volatile in recent years, falling from an all-time high of £80 in October 2015 to £36.55 in July 2017, before staging a modest recovery. The first quarter of 2018 saw the shares trading between £46.80 and £52.20. The stock ended the year at £44.78 per share.

NXT shares then gained an upside momentum in 2019, starting to soar from the first days of the year. The stock eventually peaked at £73.40 on December 16, before closing 2019 at £68.92.

However, in the first half of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic led to many brick-and-mortar retailing businesses losing their customers and, hence, profits, with a number of companies filing for bankruptcy. Next also took a hard hit and, on April 3, the stock traded at £33.90 per share, its multi-year lowest level. At the beginning of summer, the Next share value jumped higher to £56 on June 8.

JEYAKUMAR

great app, love the weekly and monthly insights, and review they send about my trading habits. spread for gold is usually 0.3 but at times fluctuates up to 0.9 this often makes it hard trading on the low time frames and not losing my position to spread even if my bias was correct, if the spread was better I'd give 5 star.

chris hoeben

Capital.com is the best broker of all time and I Should give it five stars but there is a small issue about execution of my orders through traddingview it is a bit slow. But the execution of orders directly from the capital.com App or Website is absolutely fast and apart from that everything is simple incredible.
