FTSE unchanged after review
Membership of the FTSE 100 of the UK’s leading company shares has stayed the same after its latest quarterly review, the first time in 10 years this has happened.
“Things are going so well at the moment that no one’s shares performed like a dog and dropped below the value of the top performers in the next index down, the FTSE 250,” said City analyst Colin Perry.
“The only change was P&O, which has been bought by a Dubai company, and its place in the FTSE 100 has gone to steel group Corus.
“There is real potential for investors to make money on the FTSE 100 this year, so keep your eyes peeled for good deals.”
