FTSE 100 movers: Anglo rallies on Reuters report; IHG slumps

15:28, 3rd May 2024

London's FTSE 100 was up 0.5% at 8,209.34 in afternoon trade on Friday.
Online supermarket Ocado and property portal Rightmove were the top two performers on the index.

Anglo American was also a high riser following a Reuters report that Glencore is studying an approach for the miner after it rejected a £31bn proposal from BHP.

Glencore was in the red.

Intercontinental Hotels slumped as the hotels giant reported a substantial easing in revenue per available room (RevPAR) growth in the first quarter as weakness in the Americas and a big slowdown in China limited progress.

However, IHG also announced that it would see a $25m uplift to profits this year after a change in its System Fund arrangements, lowering the fees it pays to franchisees to deliver its loyalty programme. The change will "improve economics for our owners", the company said.
