(Sharecast News) – Defence contractor Babcock’s shares were sought out at the end of the week.
The day before the company had insisted that its turnaround plan remained on track and that it would resume its dividend payments soon.
That saw the shares finish the Friday session at their best level in over two years.
Shares of International Distribution Services on the other hand were unloved despite the appointment of Martin Seidenberg as its new chief executive officer effective from the following month.
Close Brothers was also among the top fallers after updating shareholders on its performance for the first 11 months of its financial year.
