FTSE 250 movers: Hyve Group gains after pulling dividend, founder switches out of Dixons Carphone

By Alexander Bueso

Date: Wednesday 08 Apr 2020

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - London's second-tier index was trading firmly higher on Wednesday afternoon, outperforming peers on the Continent by a wide margin.

Pacing gains were an assortment of travel-related issues, including PPHE Hotel Group, TUI and WH Smith.

Boosting the former was news that it had clinched a 180m syndicated facility agreement arranged by Bank Hapoalim to fund the development of Art'otel London Hoxton.

Events outfit Hyve Group was also near the top of the leaderboard after it pulled plans to pay a dividend and outlined various cash conservation measures, including a 20% pay cut for its top executives.

Homebuilders McCarthy&Stone and Crest Nicholson also found a bid.

Analysts at Deutsche Bank cut their target prices for the two companies' shares from 170.0p to 90.0p and from 386.0p to 202.0p, but kept a 'buy' recommendation on the former's while upgrading the latter's from 'sell' to 'hold'.

"Forget earnings downgrades, ignore sensitivity analysis, none of it matters. The housing market has stopped in its tracks. Consider Persimmon, sector bellwether that most (ourselves included) view as better financed than most," they said.

"Prior to the pandemic, it was on track to deliver 2020E pre-tax profit of c1bn. If it doesn't sell a single additional unit between now and year end, it might break even. The truth (we hope) lies somewhere in between and, in the absence of clarity on the duration of all of this, we cannot forecast earnings accurately."

Among shares going the other way, stock in Dixons Carphone was in the spotlight after it emerged that on Monday he reduced his stake in the company from 6.9% to 1.2%, in a transaction worth roughly 50m in the process.

Over the past two years, Dunstone had been shifting out of Dixons Carphone and into TalkTalk, the firm that was spun off from Carphone baxk in 2010.
