  • Well, Ted Baker listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1997 and from then onwards its revenues and dividends (which it started paying in 1999) have increased every single year.
  • And if it wasn’t for a minor one-year decline after the financial crisis, its profit growth would be just as impressive.

  • I would claim that we’ll really start to see the consequences of monetary tightening around now.
