rHollas, the struggling clothing group, is looking even more threadbare. The shares, 21p a year ago, fell 3p to 4.5p as a seller dumped 1.6 million at 4.25p. The company lost pounds 3.2m in 1995 and is likely to have suffered further losses last year.Reuse content
rShares of PizzaExpress are looking overcooked, unless a bidder moves soon. They rose 11p to a 527.5p peak with buyers convinced a brewer or a leading leisure group will devour what is seen as a mouth-watering morsel. Whitbread's takeover of the Pelican restaurant chain and Rank Organisation's acquisition of the Tom Cobleigh pubs group have heightened expectations. A year ago the shares were 190p. The US group, Janus Capital, a fan of high flying JD Wetherspoon, has built a near 20 per cent stake.
