On Thursday, Premier Investments (ASX: PMV) announced its full year results. Premier's underlying earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) was up 26.1% on the year prior to $133.3 million. The continued rollout of Smiggle stationery stores presents a large opportunity globally and we believe Premier Chairman Soloman Lew and Premier Retail CEO Mark McInnes are two of the best retailers in Australia. Shares in Premier closed up 0.7% for the week. We own in Premier as a market-driven investment in WAM Capital, WAM Leaders and WAM Active.
