Britain's markets watchdog threw down the gauntlet to car and home insurers on Friday, saying they could avoid mandatory pricing restrictions if they voluntarily stop penalising loyal customers. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), in long-awaited interim conclusions from a study launched a year ago into how car and home insurers treat customers, said on Friday firms use complex pricing practices that allow them to raise prices for consumers that renew with them year on year, known as "price walking".

Growing worries about Britain crashing out of the European Union and a general election that could usher in a new government and major changes to UK Plc have steepened the discount for London-listed companies with exposure to the domestic economy. Shares in London-listed companies that make the bulk of their revenue in Britain have suffered since the June 2016 referendum on European Union membership.

Britain's FTSE 100 tumbled to its lowest in more than two months on Wednesday after the yields on 10-year U.S. and UK government bonds fell below two-year equivalents for the first time since the financial crisis, signalling mounting fears of recession. The FTSE 100 index, already under pressure from weak Chinese economic data, ended down 1.4%, with losses across all but one sector.
British insurer Admiral on Wednesday posted a 4% rise in first-half pretax profit helped by the release of money put aside for claims written in previous years. Admiral, one of Britain's largest motor insurers, reported a pretax profit of 220 million pounds ($265 million), up from 212 million a year earlier and topping the 197.1 million in a company-supplied poll of 13 analysts. "Profit growth, even if modest, is more exciting considering the 33 million pound Ogden headwind," David Stevens, group chief executive officer, said in a statement.
Shares in London-listed companies that make the bulk of their revenue in Britain plunged in recent months as worries about a disorderly Brexit have deepened, while stocks with foreign exposure have beaten the blue-chip benchmark. Domestically focused UK stocks have been shunned by many investors since the June 2016 referendum on European Union membership, and the prospect of a staunch Brexiteer replacing Theresa May as prime minister has exacerbated that trend. JP Morgan's UK domestic plays index that tracks about 30 UK stocks that make all or most of their revenue at home took a turn for the worse in mid-April, when the Brexit deadline was extended to Oct. 31 and the prospect of a leadership change increased.
Today I will examine Admiral Group plc's (LON:ADM) latest earnings update (31 December 2018) and compare these figures...

The exporter-heavy FTSE 100 outperformed its European peers while sterling plunged as investors scrambled to price in a higher chance of the country crashing out of the EU as the two candidates vying to be next PM tried to outgun each other on taking a harder stance on Brexit.
Reach him on Messenger to share your thoughts on market moves: email@example.com INDUSTRIALS OUT OF FASHION (1458 GMT) Industrial stocks are among the most unloved going into the earnings season with analysts sharply cutting profit estimates and fund managers shunning the sector. The dislike for industrial stocks is also evident among money managers: Bank of America Merrill Lynch's fund manager survey released earlier showed investors' take on the sector reversing to a 36% net underweight in July from net 15% overweight in June. With the EU capital goods sector trading at a premium to the wider indices (see below), any small disappointment in earnings is likely to lead to a sharp fall in stock prices.
