    UPDATE 2-Recharged hopes of Brexit deal, trade truce power UK shares

    London stocks finished a roller coaster session on Thursday with gains as domestic companies rose after Britain and Ireland said they saw a pathway to a Brexit deal, and international names jumped on to a global rally over hopes of a U.S.-China trade truce. The FTSE 100 ended 0.3% higher, after flipping back and forth during the day on mixed signals over the state of affairs between Beijing and Washington, while the midcap index that has a greater UK exposure also rose by the same level. Spirits company Diageo, consumer goods giant Unilever and AstraZeneca were among stocks hammered the most, causing the FTSE 100 to lag other major indexes.

    UPDATE 1-Diageo keeps organic sales forecast, says not immune to trade policy changes

    Spirits maker Diageo Plc said on Thursday it was "not immune" to changes in global trade policies, but based on the current environment expects to meet its full-year organic sales targets. The Johnnie Walker whisky and Tanqueray gin maker said it continues to expect organic net sales growth to be towards the mid-point of a 4% to 6% range and organic operating profit to grow roughly one percentage point ahead of organic net sales. The company also said it expects first-half organic operating profit growth to be in-line with or slightly behind organic net sales growth, due to stronger prior year comparables.

    Banks propel FTSE higher after flurry of central bank meetings

    The FTSE 100 index ended 0.6% higher and the mid-cap FTSE 250 index rose 0.2%, with the financial sector boosting both the indexes. Central banks around the world have been loosening monetary policy to stem a slowdown in economic growth. CMC Markets analyst Michael Hewson said the Fed's signal to hold back on further cuts was probably not priced in.

    UPDATE 1-Diageo unions demand 5% pay rise as they prepare for strikes -source

    Unions at Diageo are demanding a 5% pay rise for workers due to go on strike in Scotland later this month and believe the stoppages will cost the drinks company 1 million pounds ($1.2 million) a day, a source familiar with the matter said. A Diageo spokeswoman said that the unions had initially demanded 5% pay hikes when talks started in May, but had since come down to 3.5%. Members of Scotland's Unite and GMB unions, who make up half of Diageo's 3,000 Scottish workforce, are set to go on rolling strikes at the company's Cameronbridge, Leven and Shieldhall sites in Scotland between Sept. 17 and 27, after talks with Diageo collapsed last month.
