FTSE 250 movers: Credit Suisse upgrade drives gains for IMI, Howden Joinery lifts guidance

(Sharecast News) – Engineering group IMI was near the top of the leaderboard on Wednesday, boosted by an upgrade out of Credit Suisse from ‘neutral’ to ‘outperform’.

The Swiss broker also upped its target price from 1,160.0p to 1,450.0p, pointing to “supportive” lead indicators for the firm’s Precision division in the short-term and better-than-expected execution on cost savings retention over the medium-term to back up its case.

Howden Joinery was another top gainer after the company lifted its profit guidance after a better-than-expected performance in the final weeks of the year as locked down Britons spent more time improving their homes during the coronavirus pandemic.

Another engineer, Vesuvius, on the other hand got handed a downgrade by JP Morgan, sending its shares duly lower.

JP Morgan downgraded the industrial ceramics group’s stock from ‘overweight’ to ‘neutral’, although it did lift its target price on the shares from 575.0p to 591.0p
