Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/30/2014 -- Recently released data from Eurostat showed that Spain's economy exited recession in Q313, supporting our long-held view that the economic recovery would begin picking-up in the second half of 2013. We have revised our forecast for the economy to grow by 0.7% in 2014, from 0.2% previously, against the backdrop of a steadily improving export outlook. Nevertheless, we caution that the recovery will be sluggish and undermined by fiscal austerity, weak fixed investment, and dire labour market conditions. This means more sluggish growth for the food and drink sector, while the lower end of the sector will continue to outperform the rest. In line with this, we believe that Dia is one of a select few Western Europe-based food retailers with good near-term growth prospects in the region.
