FTSE 100 climbs as bidders from India show interest in venerable UK companies

Nov 29, 2021

FTSE 350 risers are also led by 'lockdown stocks', including travel companies, namely Carnival, Cineworld, WH Smith, Restaurant Group and easyJet FTSE 100 rises 63 points BT higher on rumours India's Reliance is sizing it up Johnson Matthey wanted on reports India's Tata is interested in its batteries business More on the speculation that is driving Johnson Matthey. It is Tata Chemicals that is reported to be in talks to buy the unwanted battery materials business of Johnson Matthey PLC (LSE:JMAT) . The business could go for between US$500mln and US$700mln, India's Mint newspaper reported, with Tata one of the frontrunners to buy the business. Talks between the two companies began after JMAT announced two weeks ago, alongside a group profit warning, that it planned to exit the battery materials business because the potential returns did not justify further investment. Elsewhere it is lockdown-affected and travel stocks that are leading the rebound, with Carnival PLC, Cineworld Group PLC, WH Smith PLC (which has a large business in airports), Restaurant Group, easyJet PLC and Wizz Air Holdings PLC at the top of the FTSE 350 leaderboard. Leading fallers are precious metals miners Hochschild Mining Plc, Polymetal International plc, along with Micro Focus International PLC Abrdn PLC (LSE:ABDN) , AstraZeneca, Hargreaves Lansdown PLC and J Sainsbury PLC (LSE:SBRY) . Joshua Mahony, market analyst at IG, says: "European markets are kicking off the week on a more positive footing today, with fears around the new Omicron variant easing somewhat. Weekend commentary out of South Africa signal the potential that the new variant may have traded increased transmissibility for a less dangerous set of symptoms. The potential for a less deadly form of the virus does appear to provide some respite to the risk-off sentiment dominating Friday’s trade. "However, the weeks ahead are fraught with danger for investors, with traders now likely to see any major updates associated with this new variant as a priority over most other economic data points. Nonetheless, while we are likely to see further knee-jerk reactions on a market level, we are only likely to gain a full picture on the risks of this variant in the coming weeks. "The banks have been hit hard since the emergence of Omicron, with the weakness seen in USDJPY in particular highlighting the shift in expectations around monetary tightening from front runners such as the Fed and BoE. An appearance from Fed chair Powell today should cast some light on just how willing the committee is to hold off on tightening policy in the face of potential economic restrictions. "With investors having jumped onto financials in anticipation of higher rates and margins, there is a distinct risk that this latest variant could set back the economy and thus dampen any appetite for further monetary tightening. The market pricing for a December rate hike from the Bank of England now stands at 38%, which is a significant decline from the circa 60% level seen less than a week ago." 9.09am: Blue chip bargain hunting The market is turning its back on Omicron – perhaps investors think it is the latest Transformers film – and snapping up blue-chip bargains. The former is 8.7% higher on bid rumours while Johnson Matthey is 4.2% firmer on reports that it has found someone interested in buying its batteries business. Curiously, both bid interests come from India. 8.25am: A bounceback of sorts, led by BT The FTSE 100 enjoyed a bounce-back of sorts as clawed back some 50 points of the 266 lost on Friday. But with six new Omicron cases identified in Scotland, the social and economic threat from this new Covid mutation will likely inform sentiment across “The global economic recovery is set for an unwelcome detour as investors assess the potential impact of the new Omicron variant,” said Richard Hunter, head of markets at Interactive Investor. “The volatility index has spiked sharply higher, with the main indices seeing a widespread wave of selling as the nemesis of markets, uncertainty, has returned. With little known at this stage about the new variant in terms of vaccine resistance and its level of contagion, many countries have taken swift action in closing their borders in an effort to prevent another global situation. “One such example of the potential concern has been the oil price, which fell sharply lower in anticipation of slowing demand. Some subsequent recovery is currently being seen and, although the recent losses have not been recouped, the oil price nonetheless remains ahead by 46% in the year to date. “There may be some lessening of volatility as more detail is released, and in any event, the current malaise should delay the immediate pressure on monetary tightening as central banks assess the potential economic damage from the new strain.” The early big mover was BT Group, up 9% after it was revealed that India’s Reliance may bid for the telco. Remember, it is only a matter of days (December 10 to be exact) before the shackles come off for billionaire Patrick Drahi Altice, which has a 12% stake in the business. Last week, Telecom Italia received a takeover approach from buyout giant KKR valuing its shares at just over £9bn. At current prices, BT is worth £15.3bn. 6.50 am: Rebound on the cards After a near 4% fall in the FTSE 100, we are expecting to see a rebound of sorts on Monday. Still, worries over the spread and potential economic impact of the newly-dubbed Omicron Covid variant look set to haunt world markets. Asia’s main bourses, for example, struggled as cases of the mutated virus were pinpointed in clusters thousands of miles away from its source in southern Africa. “After Friday’s ugly sell-off early indications would suggest we’re going to be in for a bumpy ride this week, as we come to the end of November and beginning of December, with today’s market open set to be a positive one despite a slide in Asia markets, as investors strive to understand what comes next,” said Michael Hewson of CMC Markets. “We’ve always known that new variants could well be a problem, and yet over the past 12 months, there have been many reports of possible candidates that might be a concern that have come and gone without getting the sort of market reaction we saw on Friday. “It’s also not that clear this newly renamed Omicron variant is any more deadly than the current more prevalent Delta variant, which for the most part is still causing its own fair share of problems in Europe as it is, having replaced Alpha earlier this year, without the same sort of market reaction.” After a 13% drop on Friday, US crude futures were up 4.1%. Gold, a haven asset in times of market turmoil, was up 0.5% to just under US$1,800 an ounce. Looking ahead, easyJet results later this week could provide some insight into the plans being made by the beleaguered airline industry in the face of renewed uncertainty. Otherwise, as we head into December, it looks set to be a quiet week for scheduled corporate news with savings group AJ Bell, payments specialist Wise and publisher Future set to report.
