Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
Back in January I was enticed into making a value call on AB Foods(ABF) versus Next (NXT), coming to the conclusion that Next, which does not have a sugar business, looked the better value on what looked like a less excitable more restrained valuation. I now note that the gap between AB and Next has narrowed to about the narrowest it has been for a year.
