Weekly roundup of FTSE 100 risers and fallers (February 28 – March 04)


FTSE 100 index went through a roller-coaster ride during the passing week, suffering a sharp plunge as the tensions between Russia and Ukraine escalated, and the country’s growth forecast was reduced. The index dipped almost 6% on a weekly basis.

Here we are giving the roundup of the top gainer and top loser of every day during the passing week.

Top risers of the week:

  • 28 February 2022- BAE Systems Plc (LON: BA.): Shares of the defence technology company were up by 10.20% at GBX 719.60, with a day’s high of GBX 756 and a volume of 38.4 million shares. The stock price continues to witness buying momentum after last week’s positive close. The defence-related stocks have seen a lot of buying interest after the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
  • 1 March 2022- BAE Systems Plc (LON: BA.): Shares of the defence technology company were up by 3.70% at GBX 746.20, with a day’s high of GBX 750.80, and a volume of 25.8 million shares. The company’s shares closed in the green for the second consecutive trading session amid the rising Russia-Ukraine conflict as investors’ interest rose towards defence-related stocks to protect their portfolio from the global market selloff.
  • 2 March 2022- Polymetal International Plc (LON: POLY): Precious metal & mining company’s shares were up by 18.54% at GBX 306.90, with a day’s high of GBX 319.90 and a volume of 10.2 million shares. After two consecutive days of selloff amid the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the stock covered some ground.

  • 3 March 2022- London Stock Exchange Group Plc (LON: LSEG): Shares of the exchange and financial data service provider were up by 9.64% at GBX 6,984, with a day’s high of GBX 7,200 and a volume of 1.2 million shares.

  • 4 March 2022- Evraz Plc (LON: EVR): The metal & mining company shares were up by over 77%, with a day’s high of GBX 95.50. The stock price saw some relief from the selloff after a massive fall over the week as the company has business links to Russia. Still, the share price is down by over 54% since Monday.

Top fallers of the week:

The company’s stock witnessed one of the biggest selloffs after the Russian military attacked the eastern Ukraine region. The company has business-linked to Russian territory, and investor fears a series of sanctions on Russia might impact the business.
  • 1 March 2022- Evraz Plc (LON: EVR): The metal & mining company shares were down by 28.95% at GBX 102.85 with a day’s low of GBX 102.85 and a volume of 29.6 million shares.
