Three things you need to know in the financial markets this morning from investment writer, Tony Cross


Despite the turmoil of that abandoned attempt to centralise the company’s listing in the Netherlands, today’s trading update from Unilever shows some decent sales growth over the last quarter. The upside has been seen across all divisions of the business with notable growth across emerging markets.

Games Workshop

An incredibly brief trading statement has been published by Games Workshop, following the company’s last update in September. All we’re told is that sales are ahead when compared to the same period last year and profits are at a similar level. The board does however note some uncertainties for the remainder of the financial year – the tone certainly doesn’t appear to instil confidence.

Domino’s Pizza

There’s a trading update out from Domino’s Pizza Group this morning, showing some healthy growth for the business over the July-September period. Sales are up 6% across the group, store openings are continuing apace and consumer uncertainty isn’t dragging. The scale of the success has enabled the business to approve a further £25 million worth of share buybacks starting immediately.
