FTSE 100 Live: BoE intervention to reach £65 billion; further drops in opening trade

Sep 29, 2022

September 29, 2022 Tea The Bank of England’s intervention in the UK government’s debt market was expected to cost £65 billion, and it would cost £5 billion to buy bonds every day for 13 days. - Advertisement - Further declines were expected in the London FTSE 100 in early trading, in line with declines in continental European markets. live update - Advertisement - The reaction to the dramatic crackdown on UK asset markets since the government lowered its tax and spending plans continues to flood in. The Bank of England’s intervention in the debt market has worked to ease concerns about the potential impact of the gilt turmoil on pension funds, but continues to be the main thing on a day when stocks and the pound have fallen. . Here’s a roundup of some expert feedback in and out of town. gordon shannonportfolio manager Twentyfour Asset Management: “The Bank of England extinguishes a fire sparked by mini-budgets, but monetary and fiscal policy need to start working together. A run on pension plans is only one symptom of this policy’s failure. Government tides over.” Can’t stop it.” James HughesAnalyst and scope market: “It is clear that the markets are not confident about the government, its credibility on tax plans and the market downturn has been mismanaged. With the great risk of further Bank of England intervention, volatility will be in place for some time. The turbulence is likely to remain, paving the way for the UK economy to stumble into a doom loop.” Richard Hunterhead of markets Interactive Investor: “The government’s potential conflict of interest with the Bank of England has already forced emergency remedial action from Threadneedle Street. Sterling and broader markets in general will remain under pressure, due to high inflation and aggressive interest rate hikes.” The fear of recession remains in the era of policies. wes wilkesCEO at Wealth Management Firm iron market: “The Chancellor and Prime Minister are exacerbating a self-inflicted problem and displaying breathtaking arrogance and indolence in the face of extreme market turmoil. This volatility will continue until the critical policy error of the mini-budget is reversed or mitigated. , Adrian KiddoChartered Wealth Manager at EQ Financial Planning: “The only way to address this is to U-turn or postpone the policies introduced in the mini-budget. With a lot of selfishness at the top of the table, it doesn’t seem possible, but it will show the right leadership and what the markets really need to regain lost trust in Britain. , James Thompsondirector of financial advisors Becketts FS:”It is important to note that the bond purchase exercise is an asset swap, as opposed to pure fiscal spending. It is not directly comparable with other forms of stimulus, with much consideration to generate high levels of volatility in a fragile market environment. or analysis. City comment: Wolfson’s worrying warning If he hadn’t been busy running perhaps the best retailer in Britain, Simon Wolfson would have turned into an expert internet troll. The next boss might change a phrase. Their result descriptions are more than just a dull description of their results, they are events. In today’s presentation of half-year results they begin negative and then focus on: “Before this document sinks to the level of depression seen only in newspapers, it is worth pointing out that our There are certain characteristics of the economy, such as employment opportunities and accumulated savings which bring some comfort.” Ouch. Of course, it would be nice to be optimistic, if only for the sake of diversity, but there is no specific reason for it. Wolfson quotes the famous economist John Kenneth Galbraith: “There are two kinds of predictions: those who do not know, and those who do not know do not know.” I know I don’t know. But in anything that comes in normal times, Simon Wolfson knows. His style is to lower expectations and then defeat them. Anything can happen, he can say, while clearly having the most obvious idea of ​​what is likely to happen. At this point they state that their own “informed best guesses” are less informed than usual. “More than ever, it is not possible to predict the future based on the past,” he says. The past has never been a definite predictor of the future, but it is considered a proper guide, a clue of the direction of travel. Even Wolfson says he can’t be sure of anything that worries us all. Barratt biggest singles faller amid wave of UK sales: Morning Round-up A massive sell-off wave in UK asset markets was focused on stocks today, taking the FTSE 100 to March lows, which were in wide decline, reaching a handful of its most defensive companies. Went. London’s main stock index reached 6893.60, down 111 points, which has not been touched in seven months.

Barratt Developments fell from 42p to 328p and was the biggest single faller in percentage terms, dropping over 11%. The company built more than 17,000 homes last year and its shares were worth more than 750p in January. Property website RightMove fell 23p to 483p, a drop of nearly 5%. It started the year at around 770p. Shares of pension fund providers fell for a second session even as conditions in the UK debt market remained calm, with the Bank of England acting as a £5 billion-per-day backstop buyer of Gilt. Concerns that low prices for loans are making it difficult for the sector to use its sales to meet its financial obligations prompted the BoE’s dramatic intervention yesterday, which is expected to reach £65 billion. Legal and General, which runs pension schemes for nearly 40 lakh people, fell from 6p to 214p. Aviva, the operator of over 26,000 company pension policies, was down from 10p to 379p.

Wes Wilkes, chief executive of wealth manager Iron Markets, said: “This volatility will continue until the policy error is reversed or eliminated. But the prime minister is acting like a bull in China’s shop instead. , while the Bank of England is picking up the broken pieces to try and protect Britain’s assets and some credibility in our economy.” Co-op has less profit as it promises to narrow the product range The cooperative group’s profits fell by more than 80% as supermarkets promised to abandon branded products in favor of their own-brand range as it slashed costs to cope with rising energy and food prices. The Manchester-based firm posted revenue of £5.6 billion for the first six months of 2022, flat over the previous year, while profit before tax declined from £44 million to £7 million. The firm said it would prioritize narrowing down the product range across stores. Co-op CEO Shireen Khouri-Haq said: “While 2021 provided us with some unexpected headwinds, the first six months of this year have proved even more challenging. We have had to make difficult decisions in managing our cooperative, including reducing our cost base and making some planned investments. At speed, we should do fewer things, and do them better.” She told Standard: “We definitely want to promote our brand – our honest price range … They are in a low price range, you may not need many varieties of a specific product.” Last month, the firm sold 129 petrol forecourts to rival Asda in a deal worth £600 million. Shire Foods and Indulgence Patisserie owner Wolver’s losses widen Losses at Wolvray, owner of Shire Foods and Indulgence Patisserie, increased as the company abandoned part of its turnaround plan due to lack of fixed energy costs. The firm posted revenue of £17.87 million in the first 6 months of 2022, up 13.7% over the previous year, while losses widened to £1.1 million during the period. The firm canceled its turnaround plan to manufacture retail products because it was unable to cushion the sharp rise in raw material prices, and said it would exit retail manufacturing entirely. Shares fell 18% to 760p. Wolver boss Jonathan Lander said: “The business performance of the first half of 2022 was disappointing. The tragic war in Ukraine and the associated increases and volatility in raw material, energy and labor costs pushed the price of products to customers with a reasonable certainty of acceptable profits. Made it very difficult. “Shire Foods and Indulgence Patisserie have both been impacted by cost inflation, but Shire entered this period from a strong position, with its energy costs fixed for a longer period, and as an established market player. Indulgence on the other hand was faced with a similar environment without energy price certainty and with the added challenges of change.
