Boris, backstops and Brexit: is the U.K.’s FTSE-100 a value opportunity?

By DAVID BASSANESE

QUOTE
The election of Boris Johnson as the U.K.’s new Prime Minister has heightened Brexit concerns. As this note will demonstrate, however, these concerns have already been at least partly priced into the U.K.’s FTSE-100 Index – and perhaps unduly so given the global orientation of its most highly-weighted companies. Exposure to the FTSE-100 Index – as available through the newly-launched F100 ETF – also offers attractive dividend income and diversification opportunities for Australian investors.

There’s potential value in FTSE-100 stocks
The FTSE-100 Index, which the BetaShares FTSE 100 ETF (ASX Code: F100) aims to track, includes the top 100 blue-chip companies listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Although the FTSE-100 Index has broadly matched global equity performance over the past decade or so, it has tended to under-perform in more recent years due to both global oil price weakness (which has hurt energy stocks represented in the Index) and the U.K.’s lingering Brexit uncertainty.

UK stock investors can wave goodbye to index gains of the last 18 years.

The FTSE 100 on Wednesday closed below the level seen at the end of 1999, and extended its declines on Thursday. The benchmark gauge today fell as much as 2.9 per cent, the worst drop on a closing basis since June 24, 2016, the day after the Brexit referendum.

The renewed sell-off in global equities is piling additional pressure on UK stocks, already rocked by concerns about UK Prime Minister Theresa May's ability to get her Brexit deal through Parliament. The latest bout of market carnage is being blamed on renewed US-China trade concerns, but its magnitude has surprised investors.
... of course it's not the same index (reality of a LT basket of shares probably worse)

Obviously a hot topic with the previous post in 2007!Any of the TA Team wish to comment on the Price v MACD chart? A monster divergence seen on the weekly chart.

Maybe not that high, but I do think the trade is long for the next day or so

it's long weekend for FTSE and DOW. usually some position square this session. a lot of shorts built in yestarday, so a bit of short cover rally, likes of copper and those index.

don't know why FTSE is so weak compare to DAX DOW. oil is very bullish it surpose give FTSE a lift, but it seems not happening.

One would think the FTSE would at least be in the green given the runup in base metals weirdsmiley.gif
