FTSE 100 movers: Rolls Royce, Travel names pace gains

Tue, 6th Oct 2020 16:27

(Sharecast News) - Travel-related stocks were topping gainers on the Footsie on Tuesday, helped by continued good news around the health of the US President and as regards a fourth government stimulus package Stateside.
Rolls Royce shares were in the lead, extending a bounce from their year-to-date lows.

The day before, the engine manufacturer had announced plans to sell five and seven-year debt to raise at least £1bn in gross proceeds as part of its recapitalisation plans.

Nevertheless, travel-related stocks including IAG or InterContinental Hotels Group were close behind.

Other cyclical stocks including that of lenders such as Barclays and NatWest Group or Big Oil names BP and Shell were all higher.
