FTSE 250 movers: Network Intl gains after results; Games Workshop drops
London’s FTSE 250 was up 1% at 21,170.93 in afternoon trade on Monday.
Payment solutions provider Network International was the top riser after saying it was "strongly positioned" across its "rapidly accelerating" digital payments markets despite posting double-digit full-year declines in both revenues and earnings.
Travel stocks rallied, with cruise operator Carnival, budget airline Wizz and TUI all higher. Housebuilders were also in the black, with Vistry and Bellway both up.
On the downside, miniature wargames manufacturer Games Workshop - which has benefitted from Covid-related lockdowns and restrictions - was the worst performer on the index. Traders suggested that the end of ‘stay at home’ guidance on 29 March could dent its performance.
