Don't Lose Sight Of The Grocery Prize, Ocado: Analysis

Stockbroking services firm AJ Bell has said that while online retailer Ocado is right to toast its new business wins for its 'solutions' arm, its core retail operation remains a key revenue driver that should not be overlooked.

“Although Ocado would like to be seen as a technology company, its half year results paint a very different picture," said Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell. "It generated 11 times more revenue from selling groceries than supplying technology systems and services.
