FTSE 250 movers: PZ Cussons, Harbour Energy lose ground
London's FTSE 250 was up 0.2% at 23,836.35 in afternoon trade on Thursday.
Imperial Leather maker PZ Cussons was down for the second day in a row after it said on Wednesday that full-year profits rose as sales of hygiene products soared, but that first-quarter sales had fallen against tough comparators during the height of the Covid pandemic.
Harbour Energy lost ground as the oil and gas company’s first-half revenues missed market expectations and after it said it was looking to exit its Sea Lion project in the Falkland Islands.
Housebuilder Redrow was on the back foot as it traded without entitlement to the dividend.
