Sunday newspaper round-up: Home Retail, strong pound, Lloyds Banking Group

Sun 27th Jul 14, 18

Home Retail Group is considering a sale of its 1.5bn Homebase DIY chain, the Mail on Sunday said. Home Retail wants to concentrate on its core Argos business under new group Chief Executive John Walden, who turned around Argos in the previous two years. Stronger sales and profitability at Homebase have helped bolster the case for a sale amid a company-wide review. City dealmakers are circling to win work on the potential sale and a decision could come in the next few weeks.

Sunday share tips: BG Group, BSkyB, Firestone Diamonds

Sell shares of BG Group, Danny Fortson recommended in the Sunday Times. The shares were the best performers in the European oil industry in the second quarter of this year despite the absence of a Chief Executive. Chairman Andrew Gould's reputation has supported the shares while he stands in and he is close to appointing a replacement for Chris Finlayson, who quit three months ago. Gould has said there are no sacred cows in BG's global operations and has put some of its North Sea fields up for sale. But the share price has run ahead of achievements, Fortson said in his Inside the City column. 12 hours ago
