Date: Wednesday 22 Aug 2012

Trading screen

Leading the way higher was waste management firm Shanks after saying that the Silverburn Shopping Centre in Glasgow is no longer sending any of its waste to landfill since appointing Shanks to handle its recycling. Shanks won the recycling contract just six weeks ago, and has been instrumental in ramping up the shopping centre's recycling rate from 9 per cent to 97 per cent.

Meanwhile, steam trap and pump maker company Spirax Sarco was out of favour after reporting a decline in first-half pre-tax profits following higher material costs, the impact of lower volumes in its main European factories and the economic downturn in Latin America. Jefferies said this morning to expect consensus downgrades after a 'somewhat disappointing' set of results.

Bus and rail group Stagecoach fell after revealing a decline in like-for-like revenue at its UK bus operations as all of its other divisions grew in the twelve weeks ended July 22nd.
