Here are three things you need to know in the financial markets this morning from investment writer, Tony Cross.

#1. SThree strong trading momentum continues in new FY

The specialist science and technology recruiter SThree [LON:STEM] has issued a Q1 trading update this morning. It’s been a strong start to the financial year, with fee income up by 29%, with a slightly faster level of growth being seen on the contract rather than permanent recruitment side of the business. The performance was seen as being in line with management expectations.

#2.  Bigblu Broadband full year numbers beat market expectations

Bigblu Broadband [LON:BBB] issued full year results to 30th November this morning. The numbers came in above market expectations and management see this as paving the way for further growth in the year ahead. Revenues added almost 16% and an adjusted EPS profit of 4.3p vs 1.9p was recorded.

#3. Do interims from Greatland Gold offer investors something to cheer?

AIM listed Greatland Gold [LON:GGP] has published interim earnings today, covering the six months to 31st December. The note summarises activity over the latter part of 2021, with the company saying it had made good progress, specifically calling out activity at the Haverion deposit, where a significant upgrade of mineral deposits was announced at the start of the month.
