    GKN faces £7.4bn hostile takeover bid from turnaround firm Melrose

    The FTSE 100 engineering group GKN (Frankfurt: 694194 - news) is facing a hostile takeover bid after rejecting an initial £7bn approach by Melrose Industries (Frankfurt: 27MA.F - news) . Melrose (LSE: 136541.L - news) , which specialises in turning around the fortunes of manufacturers, said it had tabled a firm cash and shares offer, now worth £7.4bn, that would give GKN shareholders 57% of the combined business. GKN attempted to see off the bid interest last week by announcing a transformation plan and succumbing to investor demands to separate its aerospace division, which has customers including Boeing (NYSE: BA - news) and Airbus, from its car parts division.

    FTSE 100 Price Forecast January 17, 2018, Technical Analysis

    The FTSE 100 broke down during the trading session on Tuesday, slicing through an uptrend line that has been rather reasonably reliable. Because of this, I think that the market will perhaps go a little lower, but I still believe in the longer-term uptrend. I suspect that the 7700 level will be the initial target, and an area where buyers could get involved.

    Energy, mining stocks drag FTSE lower

    Oil and mining companies dragged Britain's FTSE 100 index to a negative close on Tuesday, tracking energy and metals prices lower, after gaining earlier in the session on a fall in sterling. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index ended down 0.28 percent at 7,747.18 points, retreating further from a record set last week and slightly underperforming the broader European market. Interest rate-sensitive banks propped up the FTSE, but the downward pressure from oil and mining shares grew through the rest of the session, pulling the index into the red.
