TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

Sales of products to stop pets overheating, such as paddling pools and special cooling vests, jumped while its vet services division enjoyed an 18pc surge in revenue, helping to vindicate its new low-price strategy. The pets products store’s overall first-quarter revenue advanced 9.1pc to £277.4m.

New boss Peter Pritchard, who has promised to return the company to growth, said Pets at Home was “capitalising on the hot weather”. But he warned that the firm still needs “a sharpening of focus”.

Upgrading it to “hold”, Liberum argued that four consecutive quarters of like-for-like sales growth above 5pc raised questions over whether earnings had now bottomed out.
