FTSE 250 movers: WH Smith gains ground after update; Liontrust retreats

(Sharecast News) - London's FTSE 250 was flat at 22,655.86 in afternoon trade on Wednesday.
WH Smith rallied after the retailer said revenues remained below pre-pandemic levels and that it was taking a small hit from the Omicron variant, but forecast a resumption in the recovery of its travel markets.

Watches of Switzerland was on the rise after an upbeat update from French luxury goods group Richemont, which posted a jump in sales at its jewellery brands.

Johnson Matthey was boosted by a rating upgrade at Panmure Gordon, but Liontrust Asset Management fell even as it reported a rise in third-quarter assets under management.
