British consumer facing stocks have been the worst hit in the year since the U.K. voted to leave the European Union, as retail sales falter in the face of the impending divorce.
Retailers Next ( (NXGPY) ) and Kingfisher ( (KGFHY) ) were among the worst performers on the U.K.'s benchmark index, the FTSE 100, in the year since the Brexit vote, Hargreaves Lansdowne Analyst Laith Khalaf said in a Friday note.
Clothing retailer Next has lost 27.3% since June 23, 2016 and DIY retailer Kingfisher has lost 17.5% of its value.
