LONDON (ShareCast) - Leading shares drift lower despite Wall Street opening firmer. There is little in the way of corporate news flow from the major players to affect sentiment.

Telecoms titan BT has made a fighting recovery after being downgraded to ‘sell’ from ‘neutral’ byGoldman Sachs. The shares have recovered all of the morning’s losses and more, despite Goldman Sachs predicting a suspension of the company’s dividend as BT tries to ‘shore up an over-leveraged balance sheet and pay down a forecast £8bn (gross) pension liability.’

In contrast, Goldman gives the thumbs-up to mobile phone giant Vodafone, adding it to its conviction ‘buy’ list. The stock also receives support from Morgan Stanley, which has upgraded it to ‘overweight’ from ‘equal weight’.

Shire has taken over from BT as the worst performing blue-chip, as investors take profits following yesterday’s sharp rise in the wake of the co-promotion agreement in the US with Glaxo.

Mining giant Rio Tinto announced that China’s state-owned aluminium group Chinalco has received approval from the German Federal Cartel Office for its proposal to enter into a strategic partnership with Rio. The partnership, a $19.5bn fundraising deal announced in February, would bring Chinalco’s stake in Rio up to 18%.

The news has done little for the share price, however, which, in keeping with the likes of Anglo American, BHP Billiton and Lonmin, is sharply lower. Oils are also out of favour, with the big two: BP and Royal Dutch Shell the worst affected.

Car catalyst provider Johnson Matthey's trading in the three months to 31 March has been in line with expectations, though sales were lower due to the drop in demand for catalytic convertors as car sales slide and lower platinum group metal prices.

Support services giant Capita could be forced to sell all or part of recent acquisitions IBS OPENSystems after the Competition Commission ruled the deal could be damaging. In a provisional ruling, the Commission said the deal could damage competition in the market for the supply of revenues and benefits software to local authorities in the UK.

Troubled sub-prime lender Cattles's provisions for bad debts could nearly triple to £1.1bn, a review undertaken by accountant Deloitte has provisionally estimated. It has originally set aside £400m, but Delotitte says another £700m is definitely needed with another £150m also likely.

Restaurant chain Carluccio’s revenue in the 26 weeks to 29 March rose 14% over the same period last year. The group said it responded to consumers' search for value by running a series of promotions during January and February. ‘We always run promotions in January because it is quiet month,’ the company told Sharecast, adding ‘we just went a little further this year.’

Southampton Leisure, owner of Southampton Football Club, has confirmed the suspension of its shares pending talks over additional funding.

The private equity group considering a bid for insurance software group Innovation has ended its interest. It had mulled an offer at a price of 15p per share, but today CETP announced that it is no longer considering making an offer.

A rapid downturn in the diamond market resulted in Gem Diamonds falling into losses in 2008. The miner has announced a share placing to raise £75m to meet debt commitments amid continuing declines in the market.

Shares in molecular diagnostics firm Osmetech rose after it confirmed that it has signed a five-year US distribution agreement with Fisher HealthCare for its eSensor XT-8.

Plant hire specialist Speedy Hire has agreed a revised £300m banking facility that extends to June 2012 which it says gives its ‘prudent levels of headroom.’

Software house Gresham Computing surged after announcing a new contract with a global banking group for the provision of software, services and support in respect of its cash management, payment gateway and cash reporting capabilities.

Engineer Lupus Capital plummeted as it warned it had breached a bank covenant and triggered a default on part of its borrowings.

Shares in CMR Fuel Cells soared after the developer of fuel cells for portable electronics applications said it had successfully demonstrated the first prototype of its hybrid fuel cell power supply system to a leading Asian original design manufacturer.

The launch of a new product range targeting healthcare providers with different time and temperature based solutions gave Timestrip a lift. The company said the Whittington Hospital in London has placed an order for six months worth of its TimestripIV product.

Eurasia Mining moved ahead after an exploration update revealed the definition of two mineralised zones with the potential to form an open pittable resource at Monchetundra in the Kola Peninsula, Russia. It also announced the discovery of low grade platinum group metals (PGMs) at Volchetundra which suggests the discovery of a new zone.

Insurance broking and financial services business Brightside is upbeat after boosting profit from continuing operations by 182% in 2008 to £6.2m on revenue up 42% to £33.2m.
