Ftse Top Three Risers, Move Over George Sorryar5e

Recommended Posts

Tate & Lyle, Rentokil and Wimpey all up; sugar needed as bait to catch the rats running rampant in the empty studio flats the govt buys up to shore up the UK economy...KAZAKHMYS also up in fourth place following the need for copper pots to reduce/refine the sugar... :)

Financials getting stronger by the day, (backed by their chums in Govenment).

Wave goodbye to that nasty credit crunch.

Cancel that house price crash.

Tell Gordon he can stay after all, we were just kidding.

Buy a house now while its at the bottom.

Theres green shoots of recovery appearing before our eyes.

Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!

I thought we had nothing left to sell, but at >60% off anything will sell.


LONDON (SHARECAST) - British Land and Land Securities moved to the top of the FTSE 100 leaderboard after an offshoot of sovereign wealth fund Dubai World launched a bid for smaller property group Minerva worth more than double its share price.

The move sparked further speculation that there is a flood of Middle -Eastern money eyeing up UK property businesses, most of which have taken a pounding following the slide in property values over the past year. Landsecs has shed a third of its value while British Land's share price has nearly halved.

Elsewhere, miners are having a good day on rising metal prices led by Ferrexpo and Vedanta.

HBOS is one the main casualties after all but 8% of its shareholders shunned its £4bn rights issues.
