Drinks giant Allied Domecq had an interesting few days on the FTSE last week, but has again made further gains by close of business on Monday, along with money manager Man Group.
The FTSE 100 index eventually closed up 13 points or 0.29% to 4,563.8.
Reporting from both Diageo and Allied Domecq saw share prices fluctuate towards the end of last week, however Allied kept its momentum going this afternoon to close 8.25p or 1.8% higher at 465.25p.
Man Group rose 33p or 2.42% to £13.94 in the strongest performance of the day.Bovis Homes Group reported higher than expected first-half net income as the firm says it charged more for its properties. The market took this well and boosted its share price 9.5p or 1.7% to 566p by close of business.
But the bookies have had a bad couple of months, as those big bets at the races paid out to punters, so William Hill reported it earned less in July and August. As a result, its share price ended down 12.5p or 2.3% to 530p.
In the US, the markets are looking very shaky, with the Nasdaq taking the brunt of losses again.
The Dow Jones was down 20.3 points or 0.29% to 10,260 at close of 5.30pm in London while the S&P: 500 index was down 4.68 points or 0.42% to 1,113.6 and the Nasdaq Composite index is down almost 29 points or 1.55% to 1,844.IFAonline
