Alan Green joins the UK Investor Magazine Podcast to discuss Barclays (LON:BARC), Lloyds (LON:LLOY) and Open Orphan (LON:ORPH).
UK inflation rose to 2.5% in June up from 2.1% in May. Fuel prices were a large component of the rises as oil prices increased having cratered last year.
The FTSE 100 slipped in the wake of the announcement as sterling surged to highs of 1.3800 against the dollar.
Those companies operating in the consumer space were some of the bigger fallers whilst those that typically benefit from higher inflation and rates were among the top risers.

Alan Green joins the UK Investor Magazine Podcast as we digest the latest update from the UK government on the reopening and removal of COVID-19 restrictions.
With all UK restrictions set to be removed 19th July we explore what it could mean for markets and UK shares. On the announcement of the vaccine last year we saw a ‘buy everything’ move in stock markets that then evolved into value vs growth stock allocation.

Alan Green talks Bitcoin, Berkeley Group #BKG, Mosman O&G #MSMN & Altona Rare Earths #ANR on UK Investor Magazine podcast
Alan Green joins the Podcast for our weekly instalment of markets and UK equities.
This Podcast starts by looking at Bitcoin and the factors driving the recent selloff. China has implemented restriction on Bitcoin that sent the price spiralling and we look at both sides of the argument around whether now is a time to buy.
We explore Berkeley Group Holdings (LON:BKG) after the company updates the market on a bumper 2020 where the South East focused house builder managed to grow their top line despite the pandemic.
However, shares in the London-listed company fell in the immediate aftermath and we question whether investors were simply expecting too much from the company, or were nerves around a slowdown in the wider housing market driving sentiment.
Rightmove said they saw house prices rise 0.8% in June, down from 1.8% in May.
We also discuss Mosman Oil & Gas (LON:MSMN) and Altona Energy (LON:ANR).
Alan Green talks inflation, BP #BP, Blue Prism #PRSM & Karelian Diamonds #KDR on UK Investor Magazine podcast
We once more welcome Alan Green back to the UK Investor Magazine Podcast for our weekly exploration of UK equities and global markets.
UK inflation was today’s topic of discussion before we drilled down into BP (LON:BP), Blue Prism (LON:PRSM) and Karelian Diamonds (LON:KDR).
UK inflation rose to 2.1% in May as fuel, recreational goods and clothing helped prices higher as the economy reopened. A reading of 2.1% is marginally above the Bank of England’s target rate of 2% but with signs prices could elevated, there may be concerns in some corners of the market that it will force the BoE to hike rates in an economy not fully recovered from the pandemic.
As a gauge of the market’s feeling around potentially higher rates in the future, GBP/USD spiked higher by 40 points to GBP/USD 1.4120 in immediate reaction, before falling back.
Fuel prices rose 17% year-on-year, the biggest jump since 2017 as oil prices continued their march higher.
