Broker forecasts

Due to changes in how we source investment data, Broker Forecasts are not available. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Recent trade data is unavailable. We will be replacing it, however in the meantime the information is available on the London Stock Exchange website.

Data policy - All information should be used for indicative purposes only. You should independently check data before making any investment decision. HL cannot guarantee that the data is accurate or complete, and accepts no responsibility for how it may be used. Prices provided by NBTrader. Charts provided by Factset. 'Broker forecast' and 'Recent trades' provided by MoneyAM. News and fundamental data provided by Digital Look.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
