FTSE 250 movers: Genus tumbles; Hochschild recovers some ground

Wed 24 Nov 2021

LONDON (SHARECAST) - (Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 250 was down 0.2% at 23,183.20 in afternoon trade on Wednesday.
Animal genetics company Genus tumbled after it said that based on current trading, especially in China, pre-tax profit for 2022 was set to be "moderately lower" than its previous expectation.

Brewin Dolphin slid even as the wealth manager reported record full-year discretionary fund inflows.

Gold miner Hochschild was the top gainer, having fallen sharply a day earlier after saying it would fight plans by the Peruvian government to shut its mines there on environment grounds.

It also benefited from an upgrade to 'buy' from 'hold' at Barclays, which said the selloff in response to the threat of mine closures "presents a significant value opportunity".

LXI Reit was also in the black following well-received interim results.

Drinks maker Britvic fizzed higher as it lifted its dividend after a rise in annual profits as store sales increased after the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions.
