Performance comment

UK equities ended 2012 on a positive note. The main contributor was bus and rail franchise operator National Express. Despite the difficult economic background, the company remains on course to meet its full year earnings target with the c2c franchise driving revenues in its rail division. Amongst financials, we hold provider Paragon which has a business model focused on lending for housing, an important social issue. The company is diversifying into property management and recently announced record annual profits combined with a 50 per cent increase in its dividend. In the retail sector, online fashion store Asos manages its supply chain well and reported that trading in its UK division was ahead of expectations last quarter. The main detractor was Packaging company DS Smith is a significant player in the recycling of paper and cardboard, reducing the need for new wood fibre. While the acquisition of SCA Packaging has strengthened its foothold in Europe, weaker trading conditions in the region have affected the share price. Data centre operator Telecity fell back on profit taking. However, growth in the digital economy is driving demand for data centres and Telecity has recently added capacity in the key London docklands market.
