Thursday, 1 April 2021, 7:52 pm

Splashed across the front page of the main book of the Evening Standard yesterday was the headline: "DELIVEROO FLOAT FAILS TO DELIVER".

Did, though, the float really fail deliver?

Well, for the investors that bought in at the IPO it probably appears that way on day one as the stock plunged by 30pc in intra-day trading...

Something for the weekend: big blocks of tech stocks on the block - Part 2

Sunday, 28 March 2021, 5:59 pm

There is an interesting juxtaposition of two big market tales that involve Goldman Sachs this weekend.
