UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 28
Published at 28/04/2021 at 06:17

Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 5 points higher at 6,950 on Wednesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE GROUP: London Stock Exchange Group shareholders should reject a 25% pay rise for CEO David Schwimmer because of higher-than-expected costs for integrating the $27 billion acquisition of Refinitiv, a shareholder advisory service said.

* OIL: Oil prices dropped, paring overnight gains, with soaring COVID-19 cases in India and a bigger-than-expected build in U.S. crude stocks offsetting confidence shown by OPEC and its allies in a solid recovery in global fuel demand.

* London's FTSE 100 dropped on Tuesday, as export-heavy companies took a hit from a perky pound, overshadowing a rise in bank shares following HSBC's quarterly profit beat.
