Magazine – 27 Apr 2017

Large cap beneficiaries of weaker sterling in 2016 are now losing momentum as currency movements start to reverse. Is now the time to sell FTSE 100 stocks and buy UK-focused FTSE 250 companies? The new issue of Shares explores this potential shift in the market and why the forthcoming UK general election plays an important role. This week’s digital magazine also looks at small and mid-cap investment trusts, as well as discussing why the Conservative Party’s proposed energy price cap has hurt shares in utility companies. You will also find articles on Imperial Brands, JD Sports Fashion and two stocks which analysts believe could be among the next British companies to be taken over by foreign firms. For those seeking income-generating ideas, the new issue of Shares debates a fund which is yielding around 5% and a recruitment agency yielding more than 8%.
