Alan Green joins the Podcast as we discuss and review UK Equity Markets in the first quarter of 2021.
Despite the FTSE 100 posting gains of around 4% in Q1 2021, London’s leading index has traded largely sideways within a range. However markets have experienced bouts of volatility on concerns over COVID-19 and rising bond yields providing plenty of opportunity for positioning for the rest of the year.
Travel and Leisure shares were, unsurprisingly, among the top risers in the first quarter alongside those industries that fall into the ‘value share’ category such as banks, financials and commodities.
We touch on the UK’s small cap index and explore a number of companies posting strong gains in 2021 before detailed analysis of Echo Energy (LON:ECHO), Cadence Minerals (LON:KDNC) and Trident Royalties (LON:TRR).
