(Reuters) -London's FTSE 100 rose on Friday, driven by miners and strong quarterly earnings, with investors now focused on the Bank of England meeting next week amid concerns over the soaring cost of living. The FTSE 100 has risen nearly 0.4% this month, helped by gains in energy majors, defensive consumer staples and pharmaceutical stocks such as AstraZeneca. Financial markets have fully priced in a quarter-point rise in Bank Rate to 1.0%, its highest since 2009, and investors await what the Bank of England will signal about its next moves as it seeks to tackle surging prices.
DUBLIN (Reuters) -Smurfit Kappa's revenue and core profit both rose by 33% year on year in the first quarter, sending its shares sharply higher as it benefited from growing demand and customers willing to pay more to secure packaging supply. Europe's largest paper packaging producer said demand for its boxes grew by 3.6% in the first three months of the year and Chief Executive Tony Smurfit told Reuters its prices were between 8% and 10% higher than the previous three months. "Across every metric that we look at, we have never seen the kind of increases that exist over the last three months," Smurfit said in an interview on the sidelines of the company's annual general meeting.
