WM Morrison managed to reach its highest level for more than six months last night after the supermarket was picked out as a great bet for "contrarian investors". The group jumped up 3.1p to 297.9p, the latest rise in a run that has seen it lifted nearly 8 per cent since the start of April, as HSBC said the food retailers – and Morrisons in particular – were the best choice for those who like to go against the crowd.

Easter weekend is always a great time for bargain hunters and this year looks set to be no exception. Several major retailers are hosting sales including House of Fraser, Halfords and, perhaps more predictably, Thorntons the chocolatier. Thorntons's offer is three-for-two on Easter gifts plus a free box of chocolates worth £13.99 with all orders over £20 when using the discount code EA44. Meanwhile, both House of Fraser and Halfords have up to 50 per cent off dozens of items in store and online. The produce they sell may be entirely different but both retailers are clearly using the bank holiday spirit to attract new customers to their stores.
