    UK Retail Stocks Rise as Bank of England Pauses Interest Rate Hikes

    Thursday's trading session saw UK stocks initially decline, only to rebound later in the day. The FTSE 100 stock index ended up trading 0.24% higher, bolstered by gains in retail and rate-sensitive real estate and homebuilder stocks. This turnaround came despite an earlier 0.7% drop ahead of the Bank of England's (BoE) interest rate decision, which reflected market uncertainty as investors awaited the central bank's announcement.

    Return on sales in the environmental and analysis sector is expected to be lower in first half ending Sept. 30 due to 'mix effects', Halma said. The environmental and analysis unit provides high-tech solutions in areas such as water and waste water analysis and treatment, gas analysis and detection. It also stuck by its full-year return on sales and revenue outlook and expects good organic revenue growth for the first-half.
