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.
London's FTSE 100 saw its seventh day in the red on Friday, its longest losing streak since 2015, led lower by losses in pharmaceuticals after the U.S. White House scrapped a rebate rule, while the midcap bourse jumped on prospects of lower interest rates. The UK's blue-chip index edged 0.1% lower after trading in positive territory for most of the session as its more internationally-exposed constituents such as miners climbed on hopes of an interest rate cut by the U.S Federal Reserve. The mid-cap FTSE 250, however, saw a 0.6% rise as a Bank of England official said that the BoE might need to cut interest rates almost to zero after a no-deal Brexit.

London's main index skidded for the sixth straight session on Thursday as investors sold off healthcare stocks after Washington withdrew a rebate rule aimed at lowering drug prices, and a Fed-fuelled rally fizzled out. The FTSE 100 shed 0.3%, while the mid-cap FTSE 250 capitalised on a rise in sterling to add 0.1%.
Barratt Developments' efforts to cut costs by making changes to the design of the houses it builds will help the company to report annual profit that beats market expectations, the company said on Wednesday. The company has also been reducing its exposure to central London in order to focus on outer parts of the capital where houses are more affordable for many Britons. Britain's biggest housebuilder expects pretax profit of 910 million pounds ($1.13 billion) for the period ended June 30, compared with 835 million pounds a year earlier.

Britain's FTSE 100 fell on Friday as stronger-than-expected U.S. employment data tempered hopes of an aggressive interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve and as heavyweight miners fell due to weakness in China's iron ore futures. The FTSE 100 shed 0.7% on its worst day in more than a month, as a drop in homebuilder shares following a weak trading update from building supplier SIG also weighed.
Persimmon, Britain's second-largest homebuilder, suffered a drop in revenue in the first half of the year as it delayed sales closer to the completion of properties in order to improve customer satisfaction. "Perhaps more important is the fact selling prices have kept moving forwards, despite the negative PR Persimmon’s been facing," said Sophie Lund-Yates, Equity Analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown. Persimmon, which builds homes in more than 350 locations in the UK, reported on Thursday a 4.5% fall in revenue to 1.75 billion pounds ($2.2 billion) for the six months ending June 30.

Britain's Brexit crisis tipped the country's construction industry into its sharpest fall in a decade in June, a survey showed on Tuesday, in a stark sign of how quickly the world's fifth-biggest economy is slowing. The IHS Markit/CIPS construction Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) plunged to 43.1, the lowest reading since April 2009 when the country was gripped by the global financial crisis and way below any forecast in a Reuters poll of economists. The yield on 10-year British government bonds sank to its lowest level in nearly three years as investors, already anxious about the prospect of a no-deal Brexit under the country's next prime minister, took fright at the scale of the fall.
