On a similar vein, Morrisons is assessing the benefits of selling then leasing back a number of its stores in an effort to raise funds. Third-quarter figures for Weir Group are set to disappoint the markets, having been dragged lower by a number of mining projects in which the firm is involved.
The day ahead: A raft of manufacturing PMI figures for Spain, Italy and the EU will be followed by construction figures for the UK this morning. This afternoon we will see monthly factory orders out in the US, and a couple of FOMC members will also be speaking.
