FTSE Gains But BT Shares Fall

Friday, July 31, 2015

The FTSE 100 posted modest gains on Thursday, as the UK’s leading index enjoyed a better-than-expected trading session, with strong corporate updates from the Royal Bank of Scotland and Rolls-Royce boosting the index.

The UK’s leading index continued the gains begun on Wednesday, showing signs of shaking off the gloom of the previous week. Royal Bank of Scotland was the top performer, up by 2.7 percent after it reported a modest increase in second quarter profits. Meanwhile, Rolls Royce gained 2.5 percent, posting first-half profits that were better than expected. The company’s profits have fallen by 32 percent, and it has been under heavy pressure over the last few months, slashing profit forecasts three times since October last year.
