FTSE 250 movers: XP Power jumps after reinstating divi, Trainline sidetracked

Mon 03 Aug 2020

LONDON (SHARECAST) - (Sharecast News) - XP Power jumped to the top of the leaderboard at the start of the week after the power products supplier reinstated its dividend payout.
Higher alongside were shares of Games Workshop, which were again withing a whisker of their record highs while stock in Paragon Banking was pushed higher amid gains for the broader sector.

Trainline was the main drag on the second-tier index after the Sunday Times called attention to the fact that not all of the rail operator's revenues were going towards the state as called for by the emergency support that had been put in place for the company.

National Express and Go Ahead Group shares also fell, amid speculation that the government might opt to place London under lockdown in a worst case scenario.
