ONS Home Output in the Construction Industry, November 2015 In November 2015, output in the construction industry was estimated to have decreased by 0.5% compared with October 2015.

Big pullback leaves choice opportunities in oil and gas sector, says Citi The big pullback by markets in recent days has resulted in some appetising opportunities in the oil and gas sector, with broker Citi citing Premier Oil ( LON:PMO ), Soco ( LON:SIA ), Cove Energy ( LON:COV ) and Afren ( LON:AFR ) as particularly attractive in the wake of the sell-off. Citi’s Michael Alsford says a key factor affecting his post-pullback analysis is the outlook for oil prices. He sees the oil and gas sector discounting a modest decline in oil prices towards US$80/barrel over the next 12 months, which would suggest a soft landing for the economy or a willingness of OPEC to defend prices if global economic growth slows off significantly. However, a more material slowdown in the global economy would likely impact crude prices more significantly. That in turn would inhibit growth plans for the oil and exploration sector given the corresponding squeeze on operating cashflows and less access to equity-risk capital.
