FTSE 250 (MCX) 20,567.18 -0.38%
Future shares topped the FTSE 250 on Monday with a 7.23% rise Deutsche Bank initiated coverage on the UK media company at 'buy' with a 2,120p target price.

DB said Future's valuation stood out 'particularly when considered against the potential value of GoCo" - the firm that holds the GoCompare price comparison website bought in 2021 for $793m.

DB added that pressures faced by Future were cyclical, not structural.

Harbour Energy gained as crude oil prices rose above $83 a barrel. Industry services company Wood Group was also higher on the news.

On the downside Trustpilot led the fallers.
