Lloyds shares remain top at TD Waterhouse as FTSE fears and eurozone crisis boosts trading

28 May 2010 / by Lois Avery

Trading levels jumped at TD Waterhouse this week as investors panicked following a slump in the FTSE 100 and ongoing concerns about the eurozone.

Buys outnumbered sells by more than two to one in the top ten stocks list as customers sought to take advantage of declines in the market.

Lloyds Banking Group, RBS and Barclays held on to the top three spots in buys and sells. Lloyds maintained its position as the most bought and sold stock and Barclays moved into second place on the buys list as the banks continued to dominate, accounting for 49 per cent of the top ten buys and 53 per cent of the top ten sells.

Angus Rigby, Chief Executive Officer, TD Waterhouse said: " Banks maintained their popularity, as did Falklands-focused oil junior Rockhopper Exploration (RKH), while video search engine Blinkx plc (BLNX) had a surge in trading after reporting that it had moved into profitability.”

And Rockhopper remained popular as customers await results of the company's drilling at the Sea Lion prospect in the South Atlantic.

BP shares also featured in the top ten again this week amid ongoing concern about the cost of its spill in the Gulf of Mexico and as crude oil prices declined.
