London close: Stocks finish with a flurry

Date: Wednesday 22 Apr 2009

  • Market Movers
  • techMARK 1,181.27 +0.47%

  • FTSE 250 7,159.96 +2.47%

LONDON (ShareCast) - London benchmark index shares finished with a flourish as shares traced the bright start on Wall Street, while attention also went to the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s Budget speech.

In one of the shortest Budget speeches on record, Alistair Darling announced a sharp deterioration in Britain’s financial health while still finding some money to invest in protecting jobs and boosting the government’s green credentials.

Darling said net public borrowing will hit £175bn, a new 50p top rate of tax will be introduced for high-earners and Britain will drag itself out of a recession by 2009.

He also said the banking bail-out had, according to provisional estimates, cost 3.5% of UK GDP. Little wonder, then, that UBS said part-nationalised bank Lloyds Banking has “a balance sheet structure which affords more protection than most from structural margin pressures resulting from the current interest rate environment.”

UBS rates the shares a buy and has lifted its Lloyds price target from 100p to 120p.

Other UK banks have been buoyed by US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's comments yesterday that their US counterparts have enough capital. Barclays, Standard Chartered and Royal Bank of Scotland are both making decent gains.

Confirmation that higher rate tax relief on pension contributions by high earners is to be clawed back by the Treasury hit insurers such as Friends Provident, Prudential and Old Mutual.

Housebuilders welcomed the holiday on stamp duty for homes worth up to £175,000, which will be extended until the end of the year. Barratt Developments, Berkeley Group and Bovis Homes surged.

Property firms also did well with Hammerson topping the Footsie risers with British Land and Land Securities close by.

Meanwhile, ex-dividend status dragged down Centrica, Cadbury and Reed Elsevier.

GlaxoSmithKline said first quarter profit performance had been negatively effected by US generic competition, and one-off R&D intangible write-offs. Pre-tax profit was £1,931m before restructuring costs, down from £1,961m in the first quarter of 2008. Turnover rose to £6,769m from £5,686m a year earlier.

Miner BHP Billiton forecast a larger than expected 30% drop in output from copper mine, Escondida, this year following a sharp fall in the last three months. Production of iron ore and aluminium also fell in the quarter.

Marks & Spencer, Kingfisher and Next are leading the retail sector today after the good gains seen yesterday for Tesco and a positive research note on the sector from Citigroup.

Shares in commercial broadcaster ITV soared on City rumours of a bid interest from Italy's Mediaset

Game Group boasted record sales and profit for the year ended 31 January and says current trading is ahead of expectations. Full-year profit before non-recurring costs and tax leapt 67% to £126.2m, slightly better than forecast, on sales up 32% to £1.97bn. Like for like sales rose 8.8%.

Carphone Warehouse has decided to split itself into separately listed retail and telecoms businesses, but has delayed the move until the cost of financing improves. When the separation does go ahead, Carphone Warehouse will run the retail operation, while TalkTalk will focus on the broadband and landline side of the business.

A longer selling season ahead of Easter helped chocolate seller Thorntons post an 11.7% rise in sales for the 14 weeks to April 18. Sales totalled £58.6m for the period.

Building materials giant Wolseley has received acceptances from 98.31% of shareholders for its recent rights issue.

Digital TV technology group Pace said trading remains strong in line with the positive position the company reported earlier this month remains.

Financial software specialist Gresham Computing said it was benefiting from the downturn as companies use its products to cut costs.

Carpathian has been approached by New Europe Property Investments with details of a possible cash offer of €0.2 a share for the property investment firm.

AIM-listed fund manager Syndicate Asset Management leapt more than 40% at one stage Wednesday after admitting it has rejected a number of bid approaches.

Meanwhile property group Commercial Group Properties extends its recent sharp rally, to the mystification of the group’s bosses, who professed to know of no reason for the recent share price improvement.
