UK profit warnings rise at fastest rate LONDON: Profit warnings from British companies jumped more than 70 percent in the final three months of 2011, the biggest quarterly rise for a decade, as markets were rocked by economic uncertainty, Ernst & Young said on Sunday. Companies quoted on London's main list and junior AIM market issued 88 profit warnings in the final quarter, up from 51 in the third quarter, the accountancy firm said. "As evidenced by the sharp jump in the number of warnings, 2011 was a tough year for many companies and this year is likely to continue in the same vein with the gap between the winners and losers widening," said Alan Hudson, head of Ernst & Young's UK restructuring practice. "Many businesses are still expanding profitably, but others the zombie companies remain moribund by debt or defunct business models, unable to build value or gain momentum in these challenging economic conditions." The hardest hit sector was retail, ...

Gilts hit one-month low as Greek debt deal eyed  LONDON: Ten-year gilts hit a one-month low on Friday as part of a global downward move in safe-haven assets on the prospect that Greece would reach a deal with private-sector investors to avoid a chaotic default. The looming prospect of a syndication of several billion pounds of 40-year gilts next week also weighed on long-dated British government bond prices, as they fell back sharply from all-time highs struck on Wednesday. The March gilt future settled 54 ticks ...
Bunds Slips on cautious hope over Greek talks           LONDON: Bund futures fell to near 2-/1/2 week lows on Friday, as signs Greece could be nearing a vital deal with its private bondholders needed to avoid a messy default sapped demand for debt seen as a safe-haven. Greece is running out of time as it needs to seal an agreement with its private creditors in coming days to pave the way for a fresh injection of international aid before 14.5 billion euros of bond redemptions ...
Ten-year gilts suffer biggest fall in 8 weeks  LONDON: Ten-year gilts suffered their biggest one-day fall for eight weeks on Thursday, taking their lead from a tumble in US Treasury prices, higher share prices and solid demand at euro zone debt auctions. The 10-year gilt yield rose 10 basis points on the day to 2.06 percent, moving sharply away from the record low of 1.918 percent struck on Wednesday following confusion about the scale of new International Monetary Fund resources. This was the biggest rise ...
Bunds lower ahead of Spanish, French auctions LONDON: German government bonds opened lower on Thursday ahead of debt auctions from Spain and France and with hopes that the IMF could increase its resources to help countries with the fallout from the euro zone debt crisis boosting riskier assets. Bunds however, remained broadly supported near record highs with Greek debt talks, critical to avoid a disorderly default, dragging on. "Bunds trade as if the market is short of decent quality assets," a trader said. "Therefore ...
Gilt yields rebound after striking record lows  LONDON: Long-dated British government bonds finished flat on the day on Wednesday, after yields recovered from record lows hit in the middle of the session following confusion about the scale of potential IMF support to tackle the euro zone debt crisis. Yields tumbled to record lows after the correction of a media report published earlier on Wednesday that had stated the International Monetary Fund was seeking to raise an extra $1 trillion in resources. In fact - ...
Greek tension set to keep Bunds well supported LONDON: German Bund futures edged higher at Wednesday's open, supported by demand for low risk assets as Greece resumes deadlocked talks with creditors in a bid to avoid a costly default. Germany's auction of two-year debt later in the session will test how willing investors are to buy paper which carries an ultra-low yield, but is perceived to be a safe-haven owing to its high liquidity and the robust German economy. "You could argue that there's not ...
