Week 27 #WOTD – Debt worries

Bad week for most this week with an average 0.9% loss on values in a week.

BP had it worse with a 4.6% loss, but they retain 3rd position with over 20% year to date gains. This weeks loss was due to the drop in oil prices Full Story

Vodafone (VOD) are now in negative territory, dropping 3.1% in the week, now 2.3% loss for the year and down to 19th in the league. They can thank their India unit that is heavily in debt and has high competition Full Story

National Grid (NG) jumped a couple of spots with a 1.3% gain for the week, but the highest scorer of the week was BHP Group (BHPB) with 2%. Overall minor gains thanks to the increase in iron ore prices etc.
