    FTSE 100 slumps as oil price boost fades; KCOM jumps on buyout bid

    The FTSE 100 index lost 0.7 percent on its worst day in a month, but the midcaps gained 0.4 percent with gold miner Centamin leading gains after a strong quarterly update. The blue chips, which had touched a near seven-month high in the last session, lagged European markets where strong earnings from the likes of SAP and Credit Suisse kept a lid on losses.

    Appetite for construction helping cement maker LafargeHolcim weather downturn

    LafargeHolcim, the world's largest cement maker, forecast sales growth of 3 to 5 percent in 2019, as engineering projects and demand for new housing fuelled by low interest rates shield the construction industry from economic downturn.

    FTSE breaks six-day winning streak, fire burns Ocado

    The FTSE 100 edged 0.1 percent lower, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250, which benefits from a strong pound, was up 0.4 percent. Sterling held steady after strong comments on Brexit from European Council President Donald Tusk and as investors mulled a report that UK cabinet ministers had discussed plans that would potentially postpone Britain's exit from the bloc to May 24. The gains in sterling were enough to drag blue-chip exporter stocks such as Diageo, British American Tobacco and Reckitt Benckiser lower.

    Exclusive: Activist investor Cevian builds stake in Ireland's CRH

    Activist investor Cevian Capital has built a stake in Ireland's CRH to become the heavy materials and building products group's second-largest owner, Cevian managing partner Christer Gardell told Reuters. CRH, which makes cement, aggregates and asphalt among a wide range of building products, is Cevian's second disclosed new investment since stock markets turned bearish in the second half of 2018, having announced a 2.3 percent holding in banking group Nordea in December. "We have actively taken advantage of the recent market turbulence to make a number of new investments and add to some existing holdings," Gardell said.
