FTSE 100 movers: Intermediate Capital gains on update; St James's Place slumps

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 100 was flat at 7,529.76 in afternoon trade on Thursday. Intermediate Capital gained as it reported a jump in assets under management.

Equipment rental firm Ashtead advanced after solid fourth-quarter results from US peer United Rentals.

WPP was also on the rise after well-received results from French peer Publicis.

On the downside, St James's Place slid as its fourth-quarter net inflows missed estimates.

Industrial parts distributor RS Group fell as it reported a 10% decline in third-quarter like-for-like sales on weaker-than-expected markets and slower unwinding of customer surplus inventory particularly in electronics and associated products.
