Trade view dims, Kingfisher drops on FTSE's worst day in three weeks

KGF

(Reuters) - UK stocks fell on Wednesday after three sessions of gains as flaring tensions between China and the United States cast doubt over prospects of a trade deal and retailer Kingfisher (LON:KGF) slumped 7% following disappointing quarterly sales. The FTSE 100 (FTSE) lost 0.8% on its worst day in almost three weeks, as trade concerns weighed on Asia-exposed financial stocks like HSBC (L:HSBA), while oil majors Shell (L:RDSa) and BP (L:BP) and industrial stocks also slipped. Losses on the more domestically-focussed FTSE 250 (FTMC) were slightly more contained, as the index gave up 0.3%. However, earnings-driven gains helped pub operator Mitchells & Butlers (L:MAB), software company Micro Focus (L:MCRO) and thermal processing service provider Bodycote (L:BOY) rise between 4%-5% and outperform the mid-cap index. Worries over U.S.-China trade escalated as President Donald Trump threatened to raise tariffs on imports if no deal was reached, while nerves were jangled further after the U.S. Senate passed legislation backing protesters in Hong Kong, which drew condemnation from Beijing.

UPDATE 1-FTSE slips 1% on bleak trade view; Kingfisher falls

KGF

U.S. UPDATE 1-FTSE slips 1% on bleak trade view; Kingfisher falls. Nov 20 (Reuters) - UK stocks fell on Wednesday after three sessions of gains, as Sino-U.S. trade tensions flared up and retailer Kingfisher slumped 7% following disappointing quarterly sales. Worries over U.S.-China trade escalated as President Donald Trump threatened to raise tariffs on imports if no deal was reached, while nerves were jangled further after the U.S. Senate passed legislation backing protesters in Hong Kong, which drew condemnation from Beijing. "Given that the U.S. Senate has just passed legislation in support of the Hong Kong protests, such a move threatens to drive a wedge into ongoing negotiations while potentially raising the barrier to a trade deal," Han Tan, market analyst at FXTM said.

B&Q owner Kingfisher sees sales slide in ‘disappointing’ third quarter

KGF

B&Q owner Kingfisher has seen shares come under pressure after its new boss revealed “disappointing” recent trading with another slide in sales at the DIY group. The group revealed B&Q’s UK and Ireland like-for-like sales declines accelerated to 3.4% in the quarter to October 31. But this was offset once more by growth of 3.7% at its Screwfix arm, albeit marking a slowdown on the chain’s first-half performance. Mr Garnier, who took over eight weeks ago from former chief executive Veronique Laury, said Kingfisher continues to suffer from a lengthy overhaul programme and tough market conditions. The group also cautioned trading would remain tough for the final quarter across all its operations, with the UK continuing to be impacted by disruption to sales from range changes as well as a tough market backdrop.
