FTSE 100 movers: CRH rallies; Rightmove in the red

14:43, 10th May 2024

London's FTSE 100 was up 0.7% at 8,436 in afternoon trade on Friday.
CRH rallied after saying it made a solid start to 2024 in the seasonally least significant quarter, with revenues rising on the back of positive pricing, early-season activity and favourable weather in key markets.

The company reaffirmed its previous guidance for 2024, saying it expects a "favourable market backdrop and continued positive pricing momentum" during the year.

Commodity trader and miner Glencore was among the top gainers as metals prices rose.

On the downside, property portal Rightmove was under the cosh as it reiterated its revenue and profit guidance for the full year, and upgraded its customer growth expectations after a strong start to the year.
