FTSE 250 movers: Leisure stocks gain; Moneysupermarket hit by downgrade

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 250 was up 1.8% at 21,416.55 in afternoon trade on Monday. Travel and leisure stocks with exposure to the Covid-19 pandemic were the biggest gainers amid hopes that the speedy vaccine rollout will bring a return to more normal life by spring.

National Express, WH Smith, Cineworld, shopping centre owner Hammerson, pub group Mitchells & Butlers, travel company TUI, FirstGroup, easyJet, Marks & Spencer and Upper Crust owner SSP all rose.

Mitchells & Butlers was also in focus after saying it plans to raise £350m through an open offer and had also reached agreement with its banks for a new £150m three-year year unsecured revolving credit facility to bolster its balance sheet.

On the downside, Moneysupermarket was knocked lower by a downgrade to 'hold' from 'buy' at Liberum, which said tougher regulation of home and motor insurance and stiffer competition will drag on the company's earnings.
