FTSE 250 movers: Investors eye real estate amid reopening hopes, Cineworld and Just Group pop higher

(Sharecast News) -

Investors had their eye on shares of real estate firms on Tuesday, amid hopes for the reopening of the UK economy and a smattering of news around the sector.

Against that backdrop, Hammerson was at the top of the leaderboard on the second-tier index after announcing that it sought to convert a former flagship Debenhams in Leicester into housing.

Stock in Sirius Real Estate was also higher, coming within a whisker of its 52-week highs after news broke that it had bought a property in Essen for €10.7m.

Linked to the reopening theme as well perhaps, Cineworld shares could also be seen at their 52-week highs on Tuesday.

Just Group was another top gainer as analysts hailed the insurer's full-year numbers.

"These results show that Just Group is at last a cash generative insurer which is no longer at risk of needing external capital," analysts at RBC Capital said in a research note sent to clients.

"A record low level of strain means the group can grow without jeopardising the balance sheet."
