London afternoon: Miners revival not enough

Date: Tuesday 08 Jun 2010

  • Market Movers
  • techMARK 1,572.67 -0.85%

LONDON (ShareCast) - Footsie staged a small revival over the lunch time session, helped by a recovery by mining stocks, but the majority of FTSE 100 constituents are still in the red with laggards outnumbering leaders by three to one.

BP is again among the worst performers as US president Barack Obama said he’d sack the British company’s chief executive Tony Hayward in an interview with NBC to be aired tonight, Obama took exception to Hayward’s comments that he wanted his “life back” and that the Gulf of Mexico was “a big ocean”.

BP suffered another blow when Russia’s state-run gas giant Gazprom said it had no need for the British oil company’s massive Kovykta gas field in Siberia. The Russian export monopoly had planned to buy the field from BP's 50:50 joint venture TNK-BP in 2007 for as much as $900m, but the deal eventually fell apart. It had been hoped that Gazprom had revived its interest in the gas field, which contains 2trn cubic metres of gas, and would pay up to $1bn for the asset.

Tesco is also on the ropes after chief executive Sir Terry Leahy announced he’ll retire next March, with Philip Clarke moving up to take his place as CEO at the UK's top supermarket chain.

Chloride leads the second line after agreeing an £860m, 325p per share takeover bid from ABB. Emerson Electric is the other suitor interested in the power supplies group.

Newsagent chain WH Smith announced the retirement of chairman Robert Walker as it revealed a 4% fall in like-for-like sales in the 14 weeks to June 5.

Falkland Basin oil explorer Rockhopper has wasted little time in tapping shareholders after its recent discoveries in the South Atlantic. The firm is to raise £48.5m through a placing of 17.3m new shares at 280p apiece, a small discount to last night's close of 290p.

Revenues edged up at mobile phone messaging group Synchronica in the year to December 31, but converting its sales pipeline into revenues will need to speed up if the company is to meet expectations for the year.
