FTSE 100 Rebounds After Sharp Losses in Previous Session
0759 GMT - The FTSE 100 rises 2.4% to 7197 points, recovering
from heavy losses in the previous session when global recession
fears resulted in weaker commodity prices, dragging mining and
energy shares lower. Abrdn is the best performer, rising 6.3%,
after the investment company launched a GBP300-million share
buyback program. Despite its rebound in early trade, the FTSE 100
is down 3.5% in year-to-date, Interactive Investor analyst Richard
Hunter writes. "U.K. markets will be in general focus today, as the
latest round of political drama unfolds," he says, referring to
Tuesday's resignation of U.K. Health Secretary Sajid Javid and U.K.
finance chief Rishi Sunak following a string of scandals under
Prime Minister Boris Johnson. (email@example.com)

AO World Discounted Share Placing Seen as Actual Rescue Fund
0734 GMT - AO World's new discounted share placing continues to
be immediately value destructive for the company after the news of
its potential financial deterioration and is nothing but a rescue
fund raise, Shore Capital's analysts Clive Black and Bradley Hughes
say in a note. "How the business expects to robustly and
comprehensively improve its operating metrics to us seems difficult
to square with today's updates and reasons for fundraising," the
U.K. investment group says, noting that the fundraising will be
materially earnings dilutive. "We continue to urge investors to
rotate into Marks Electrical, highlighting their superior
fundamentals and see any derating as collateral damage," Shore
adds. Shares are up 3.2% at 48.50 pence. (firstname.lastname@example.org;
