FTSE 100 Falls as Oil, Mining Stocks Drop

0814 GMT - The FTSE 100 Index drops 0.2%, or 17 points to 7259 as oil and mining stocks drag down London's blue-chip index.

Meanwhile, Antofagasta, Glencore and Anglo American drop as gold, silver and base-metal prices fall following downbeat trading in Asia. Vodafone Group trades largely unchanged after the mobile-phone operator reported first-quarter trading in line with expectations and said it was on track to hit full-year targets.

Market Talk: 

Ryanair Seen Leading Peers During Recovery

0821 GMT - Ryanair plans to operate during summer 2022 at a capacity 15% higher than 2019's levels as it leads peers in the postpademic recovery, Third Bridge analyst Allegra Dawes says in a note. Although the golden age of cheap air travel is over thanks to decade-high oil prices and inflation, the budget airline's fuel hedging policy means they are well positioned to maintain price competitiveness and are under less pressure than others to increase fares over the next 12 months, Dawes says. Furthermore, revenue for summer 2022 could be 20% higher than in 2019, the analyst says. "Growth in passengers up to 225 million by 2026 will be driven by continued strength in Italy, Spain and expansion opportunities in Germany and Eastern Europe," Dawes says.

Vodafone Shares Could Be Safe Haven in Storm

0815 GMT - Shares in Vodafone Group edge 0.1% higher after the mobile-phone company reported first-quarter trading in line with expectations and said it was on track to hit full-year targets. "Results were mixed for the telecoms giant with a disappointing performance in Germany offset by strength in Britain and Turkey, lifted by its spiralling inflation," Interactive Investor analyst Victoria Scholar writes. Still, amid an uncertain backdrop and concerns about a global recession, Vodafone and other telecom companies could present themselves as stable sector stocks to weather the storm, Scholar says.
