    Retail gloom helps to end six weeks of FTSE gains

    Britain's major share index rallied to a higher close on Friday as strong metals prices boosted miners and investors sought out makers of consumer staples following fresh evidence of a slowdown in consumer spending. Profit warnings in the morning from retailer Carpetright and funeral services provider Dignity reverberated across the retail sector and underscored the challenges facing British companies that suffer most when household finances are tight. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) rose 0.4 percent.

    Sterling seesaws after UK retail sales data; briefly nears $1.40

    Sterling seesawed on Friday after data showed British shop sales slid by much more than expected in December, capping off the weakest year for retail since 2013 as consumers squeezed by high inflation continued to keep a tight grip on spending. The pound initially fell on the data, before reversing losses to briefly trade at its highest level against the dollar since Britain's June 2016 vote to leave the European Union on Friday at $1.4943. Retail sales volumes dropped 1.5 percent from November, the Office for National Statistics said, well below economists' forecasts in a Reuters poll for a monthly dip of 0.6 percent and more than reversing a 1.0 percent rise in November.

    FTSE led lower by AB Foods and utilities

    Britain's blue-chip index fell on Thursday, led lower by utilities and a decline for Associated British Foods (ABF.L) after warning that profit at its sugar business would fall more than previously forecast. The FTSE (.FTSE) ended 0.3 percent down at 7,700.96 points and the mid-cap index (.FTMC) finished with a 0.5 percent fall. Utilities were weaker after a junior minister told a parliamentary committee that Britain hoped to pass laws to allow the capping of the most common form of gas and electricity tariffs for millions of households by the summer.

    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.
