Market Report: New share boost is delivered by Ocado

The online grocer Ocado is best-known for its delivery vans on the UK's well-heeled suburban streets. But until recently it has often been in the red column of heavy fallers on the stock market since floating at 180p in July 2010. The loss-making firm looked healthier after its confirmation of talks with supermarket Morrisons over licensing its technology sent its shares soaring by nearly a quarter on Thursday.
