Strong Sterling Weighs on FTSE

Thursday, 18th October 2018

A strong Sterling is bad news for multinationals and exporters, and while the Wall Street and European markets were strong, the FTSE 100 gained just 0.4 percent, a far cry from the STOXXE, which gained 1.8 percent.

British American Tobacco was the poorest performer on the index, shedding 4.6 percent after they cut its full-year revenue target down from 1 billion to 900 million for their cigarette alternatives. BAT’s statement left questions about the shift to e-cigs, which many companies in the tobacco industry are making as cigarette consumption is trending downwards.

Shares in Tesco, meanwhile, are down by 3.4 percent, as Kantar Worldpanel published data that shows that Tesco has lost market share over the last 12 weeks. Consumers are turning to Aldi and Lidl and other out of town discounters, as they are beginning to feel the pinch.

Online grocer Ocado was one of the top performers, topping the FTSE 100 thanks to an upgrade from analysts. BAML raised their target for the stock twice, all the way from ‘underperform’ to ‘buy’, which led to a 5.5 percent gain for the stock. Meanwhile, the FTSE 250 performed slightly better, gaining 1.8 percent over the course of the trading day, although there was some domestic weakness, with Merlin Entertainments falling by 8 percent after Legoland failed to perform well over the summer.
