FTSE rebound led by mining shares

0000-00-00

CATHY ADAMS

The leading share index staged a rebound this morning, led by mining shares.

In early deals, the FTSE rose 0.6 per cent after suffering its sharpest one-day fall yesterday since July on concerns that the US Federal Reserve could wind up stimulus programme sooner than expected.

Headline miners made up the top five FTSE risers this morning – as metal prices rallied – with Kazakhmys leading the pack, up 2.74 per cent.

Russian precious metals miner Polymetal and steelmaker Evraz were both up 2.2 per cent.

Outside of the miners, luxury retailer Burberry was up 2.2 per cent, and industrial buyout specialist Melrose rose 2.1 per cent.

Mid-cap miners and oil shares were also doing well, with Finnish miner Talvivaara up 7.2 per cent and Fortune Oil rising 4.6 per cent.

A mixed bunch of shares made up the FTSE fallers this morning. G4S topped the blue chip loser board, shedding 1.4 per cent.

Education group Pearson, which also owns the Financial Times, sank 0.8 per cent.

Brewer SAB Miller fell 0.4 per cent in early trading. Yesterday Morgan Stanley initiated its coverage of the stock with an “equal-weight” rating and a target price of 3300p.

On the wider index, Indonesian coal miner Bumi fell 4.2 per cent, as the majority of board overhaul proposals from company co-founder Nat Rothschild were rejected at the company’s EGM yesterday.

UK banking shares were mainly in positive territory this morning. HSBC rose 0.56 per cent, Barclays was up 1.17 per cent and Lloyds Banking Group rallied 0.89 per cent. Only RBS fell, shedding 0.39 per cent.

In Asia, the Nikkei closed up 0.68 per cent and in the US, the Dow Jones closed down 0.34 per cent.
