    Defensive shares keep FTSE aloft

    The UK's top share index held its ground on Friday, outperforming a broadly negative European market, as global trade uncertainty and political troubles closer to home spurred demand for defensive stocks and earnings filtered through. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index was up 0.1 percent at 7,694.98 points by 0916 GMT. The FTSE, dominated by companies with large foreign currency earnings, has found support from weakness in the pound, which has been on the backfoot this week amid signs of discord in Prime Minister Theresa May's party over her Brexit strategy.

    Unilever forecasts improved sales as it reforms structure

    Unilever expects sales growth to accelerate in the second half of the year, as it pushes through price rises to offset higher commodity costs and works to collapse its dual-headed structure. An increasing number of UK-based shareholders are voicing concern about the plan to make Rotterdam its headquarters, which will likely seen Unilever drop out of Britain's blue chip FTSE 100 index. "We don't think the changes, as they currently stand are in the best interests of the company's UK investor base and we will be urging the group to reconsider its plans," Hargreaves Lansdown portfolio manager Steve Clayton said on Thursday.

    Firing fake pineapples, Pernod uses 'influencers' to drive sales

    LONDON/CANNES, France (Reuters) - This spring, Pernod Ricard's (PERP.PA) Malibu Rum paid American singer Nick Jonas to host a competition in Vietnam that began with 33 Instagram stars battling to catch fake pineapples while flying off a giant waterslide into the sea. In one month alone, videos and pictures from the "Malibu Games" were viewed 2.4 billion times online, showing the potential for so-called "influencer marketing" to reach social media-mad consumers that may overlook older, traditional brands. Influencer marketing found early popularity with beauty, fast fashion and fitness brands but has now spread across the spectrum, even though some analysts question whether it actually works.
