28 June 2022

Yet further recovery in equity markets in the UK was seen yesterday with the FTSE 100 Index rising to 7,258.32.  This rally has continued in early trading today with the FTSE 100 up over 70 points at over 7,330 after 40 minutes’ trading.  One interesting aspect of the market which does not seem to have been appreciated has been the decline in share prices of some of the preference shares quoted on the market.  This has left preference shares in Aviva, for example, yielding 7% – very attractive for income seekers!!
