Spot the difference for the FTSE 100 recent losers Johnson Matthey and Darktrace

By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Sunday 5 December 2021

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Being a FTSE 100 company is exciting at one level but can be very boring at another, as anybody can see by looking at the Footsie’s inability to get anywhere close to its peak levels well over three years ago, unlike the FTSE 250.  Still, at least the FTSE 100 is ahead of the FTSE AIM index compared to the dot-com bubble which ended in early 2000.  What a mad world that was, even if it meant the first five full years of my investment management career usefully showed a bunch of busts and booms.
