INVESTING SHOW: The shares hit the hardest in the stock market slump (and those that went up)
Stock markets around the world have taken a tumble, with the FTSE 100 falling into correction territory.
But while the leading London index fell 10 per cent from its peak, some popular shares dropped by much more.
On this latest episode of the Investing Show we look at the companies that fell the most in the month leading up to this week, both in the FTSE 100 and on the AIM market.
Big names have been hurt by warnings on profits and individual disappointments, including Royal Mail, Thomas Cook and Superdry, but even firms that had been doing well have slipped – such as Hargreaves Lansdown and easyJet.
The real pain in many people’s portfolios will have been felt in some former stock market stars listed on AIM, however. Here Fevertree and Burford Capital have suffered big falls after gaining astonishing amounts in recent years.
Simon Lambert, Richard Hunter and Nick Batsford take a look at whether it is time to worry or bargain hunter – and at what’s gone up as the market went down.
On the show we discuss the biggest fallers (and FTSE All Share risers) at the start of this week. This has changed slightly since and below is an updated list of fallers and risers.
