Weekly Round Up
Although this is good news, it is old news as far as the market is concerned with much of the re-rating of share prices taking place in early November following the initial vaccine success by Pfizer and BioNTech.
Meanwhile with the UK set to leave the EU on December 31 and with no deal yet to be agreed between the two parties, markets are trading cautiously. We have seen tensions this week as President Macron of France stands his ground over the sovereignty of fishing rights.
Risers and Fallers
This week’s biggest faller is Unilever Plc. From Monday the consumer goods company began to solely trade on the London Stock Exchange with their Dutch shares ceasing trading last Friday. The shares fell 5.9% on the week.
