DSG International, the retailing group that owns Currys and PC World, is due to publish interim results on Thursday. It finished last week strongly with its shares spiking by nearly 21 per cent to 13p after analysts at Credit Suisse issued a positive update. The watchers, in something of a volte face, said that the group is likely to outperform the sector, adding: "In our view the market has overreacted to concerns about the group's sustainability in the medium term. After our long-term negative stance on the stock, we move to outperform with a target of 25p."
