HSBC woe drags FTSE as Greek drama continues – London Report

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Express KCS whatsapp A DROP in the shares of banking group HSBC held back Britain’s top equity index yesterday, although many traders still expected the UK stock market to reach record highs soon.The blue-chip FTSE 100 index closed down by 3.04 points, flat in percentage terms, at 6,912.16 points.The FTSE had risen 0.4 per cent to a 15-year high of 6,943.61, just shy of its record intraday high of 6,950.60 set in December 1999. But those gains evaporated when HSBC, Europe’s largest bank, reported a 17 per cent drop in annual profit, sending its shares down 4.6 percent to near their lowest level since October 2012.HSBC has apologised for conduct and compliance failures at its Swiss private bank, and the fall in its shares also caused shares in its rival Standard Chartered to retreat by 4.7 per cent.“The worry now is going to be the opening of regulatory investigations. The uncertainty will continue, and the downside is likely to persist,” said LONTRAD managing director Zeg Choudhry, commenting on HSBC’s results.Rival bank Lloyds rose 1.3 per cent. Britain raised £500m by selling a 1 per cent stake in the bank, which was bailed out during the financial crisis of 2007-2009. Traders were expecting Lloyds to announce its first dividend since that rescue later this week.Nevertheless, the FTSE underperformed gains on rival European markets, such as Germany’s Dax, which touched record highs.Yesterday the DAX closed up nearly one per cent, at 11,130.92, while the French Cac 40 was also up, at 4862.30. Eurozone finance ministers agreed in principle on Friday to extend Greece’s financial rescue by four months, averting a cash crunch in March that could have forced the country out of the currency bloc.However, the accord requires Greece to submit by Monday a letter to the Eurogroup listing all the policy measures it plans to take during the remainder of the bailout period. Germany said it expected the plan to be “coherent and plausible”.Despite the uncertainty over Greece, many traders said it was only a matter of time before the FTSE climbed to record highs around 7,000 points.ActivTrades chief analyst Carlo Alberto de Casa said the UK’s economic recovery offered further support to the FTSE.“The jobs and salaries figures released in the UK last week are supporting the FTSE, which is still in a bullish trend.” center_img Monday 23 February 2015 8:33 pm HSBC woe drags FTSE as Greek drama continues – London Report Share Tags: Company FTSE 100 HSBC Holdingslast_img read more

From Laois, Steven studied Journalism in DCU and has 14 years experience in the media, almost 10 of those in an editorial role. Husband of Emily, father of William and Lillian, he’s happiest when he’s telling stories or kicking a point. Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp Electric Picnic Facebook WhatsApp News Laois hurling manager Eddie Brennan has said he is in favour of the GAA looking at a rule change that punishes cynical play ahead of the association’s annual congress this week which will discuss the possibility of adding the Black Card sin bin rule to hurling.Currently in football, a player can be sin-binned for 10 minutes if he commits certain offences, including cynical fouling and dragging players down.The same rule doesn’t apply to hurling but the apparent rise in cynical acts in the game has led to the GAA’s rules committee putting a motion to congress.Speaking after Laois’s narrow win over Carlow on Saturday night, where Laois player Paddy Purcell was again subject to a number of deliberate cynical fouls, Brennan said that the current punishment of just a free doesn’t seem to be enough.Though he didn’t say he wanted a sin bin identical to football, he did say that “the debate for a black card or a sin bin … has to be had”.“Whether the sin bin or the black card is the answer I don’t know but I think we really have to look at saying are we serious about it.”Brennan floated the idea that perhaps the punishment for a cynical foul inside a certain area should be an automatic penalty, with a similar foul outside that area being punished with a close-range free.“It (cynical fouling) has to come at a cost. If a player rolls the dice and if I’m that player and it’s the difference between winning and losing, you’re probably going to do it. That is the reality. We don’t blame our players, we blame the game“If they want to put in a rule that is going to be adequate I hope so. But we have to also think is it fitting of the game.“If a player is willing to drag a player down cynically like that then you bring it in. If it’s inside the D or the 21 or the ’45, it’s a penalty. If it’s down the field, you bring it up and it’s a free at the edge of the D.“It has to come at a cost to a team. If a player is willing to do that, there has to be an adequate punishment.”Brennan acknowledged that “there’s no skill” in dragging a player down “but it is creeping in”.“We’d be very much in denial in hurling (if we said otherwise. We’re sometimes lawdy daw with ourselves or a bit arrogant about our game.“Our game is good but if something creeps in then you have to deal with it. And sometimes we don’t deal with it.“Players are on the training field and in their preparation for championship matches they have to be clear, if they roll the dice there has to be a fitting punishment.“I’d like it needs to be inclusive of some of the managers and for it to take everyone’s views on board … (but) I think we have to reward attacking play.“We want to encourage our young players on the skills of hurling. Otherwise it’s going to disintegrate into rugby with sticks.”SEE ALSO – ‘No way that match should have gone ahead’ says Eddie Brennan as Laois hurlers beat Carlow in dreadful conditions TAGSEddie BrennanLaois senior hurlersLaois v Carlow Twitter Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Twitter Electric Picnic Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival datelast_img read more
