Alan Green joins the Podcast for an exploration of a selection of UK equities.
We discuss Marks and Spencer (LON:MKS), Halfords (LON:HFD), JD Wetherspoon (LON:JDW) and Power Metal Resources (LON:POW).
With a backdrop of a Bank of England surprising markets by not hiking rates last week, the focus of this Podcast is UK consumer shares and whether their results reflect the doubts the BoE has on the strength of the UK economy.
We question whether M&S recent results are a sign of a turnaround in the business or just a bounce back from the pandemic.
JD Wetherspoons saw a 30% drop in Ale sales contributing to an overall 8.9% drop in like-for-like sales as the company highlighted a change in the demographics of their customers.
Halfords have enjoyed bumper sales from their auto centres sending shares up over 15%.
UK Investor Magazine Podcast – Barratt Developments, UK Economy and CryptoCurrencies with Alan Green
Alan Green joins the UK Investor Magazine Podcast for a broad discussion around the UK economy, NFTs and a selection of UK equities.
Barratt Developments shares soared following a trading statement which was more upbeat than investor shad may be expected. The rest of the housebuilding sector rose in line with Barratts and we look at whether the environment is right for further share price increases.
We explore the most recent set of UK economic data and whether an interest rate hike could derail general optimism in markets at the moment.
With CryptoCurrencies still grabbing headlines we run through developments at Aquis-listed Coinsilium and the NFT market.
Alan Green joins the UK Investor Magazine Podcast to discuss the key themes in UK markets and explore individual equities.
This week we look at the takeover offers for Entain and the wave of cash being deployed in the takeover and buy outs of UK companies. We then look at junior explorer Caerus Minerals.
Entain is the latest UK company to be subject to takeover interest from a US entity. In this case it’s mergers and acquisitions activity as the interested party is DraftKings. DraftKings has made a £16.4bn offer for the owner of Ladbrokes which saw Entain shares soar and pulled up the prices of other gambling shares on hopes of more interest in sector.
William Hill was acquired by US-based Caesars in a near £3bn deal and Entain would be the latest UK gambling company snapped as the US gambling market develops.
We look at the wider trend of US interest in UK companies and question the ramifications for Uk equity in the rest of 2021.
Caerus Minerals has avoided the downturn in mining shares and we look at the merits of the company and their operations in Cyprus.
