Market overview: M&A speculation lends a hand to Footsie 24 Nov 2014 | 09:35
1630:Close UK Stocks ended the session in the blue, propped up by a spate of M&A speculation and news spanning various sectors, including telecommunications (BT Group), orthopaedics (Smith&Nephew) and finance (Friends Life and RBS). That helped to offset weakness in the oil services patch, on the heels of a profit warning out of Petrofac. BT is of particular interest in so far as the acquirers in a possible corporate tie-up more often than not come up on the short-end after the news breaks. In this case the mooted transaction consists of a strategic merger with O2, which might loosen the financial burden of the same, but even so. TalkTalk gained sharply on the back of BT confirming its interest in O2, possibly as investors in the firm felt vindicated in the strategic path which their firm had set out on. FTSE 100 down 21 to 6,730.
