Next (NXT) has been a perennial source of frustration for retail investors. In the past 20 months, the share price has gone precisely nowhere, up just 1.77%. There’s been ups and downs along the way, though, with results fluctuating quarter to- uarter.

Of course, it’s in a tough sector. Retailers have had to contend with the threat of online offerings taking market share from the traditional bricks and mortar sellers. Consumers’ purchasing power has been squeezed, too, by rising inflation and stagnant wage growth.
