PARIS — Shares in Carrefour SA increased 5.6 percent Thursday as the retail giant posted a 4.9 percent rise in first-half operating profits, and said business in its core French market is now demonstrating “good profitability” in all formats.
While acknowledging that Carrefour continues to face subdued demand in Europe and currency headwinds and wage inflation in Latin America, chief executive officer Georges Plassat assured the company is “on the path to self-confidence.”

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
