FTSE 250 movers: FirstGroup lifted by Bank of America note

02 April 2013 15:57

Travel company FirstGroup rocketed higher after Bank of America Merrill Lynch issued a bullish note on the stock.

Inter-dealer broker ICAP was on the rebound after a recent profit warning. Giving it a boost was the news that Nasdaq is set to purchase eSpeed, which Shore Capital pointed out has a similar revenue multiple to ICAP's BrokerTec platform, indicating it is worth in the region of £1.6bn. The broker said: "The read-across from this deal is essentially positive for ICAP because it underscores the value inherent in its electronic broking assets."

Specialist insurance group Hiscox was a big faller after Goldman Sachs reiterated its sell/neutral rating on the stock.
