    Stocks on the move: Embracer plummets 45%, Marks & Spencer up 13%

    Shares of Embracer were down as much as 45% after a partnership deal fell through, prompting guidance cuts. The would-be partnership was described as “groundbreaking” in a press release by the gaming giant, who said the deal would have “set a new benchmark” for the industry.

    The deal would have been worth around $2 billion in revenue over a six-year period, but late Tuesday night Embracer “received a negative outcome” from the counterparty, which was “unexpected” to Embracer’s management and board of directors.

    British pound falls, gilt yields climb on hot inflation print

    The British pound fell 0.3% against the dollar and slipped by 0.1% against the euro after U.K. inflation came in hotter than forecast, with headline CPI at 8.7%, versus the 8.2% predicted in a Reuters economist poll.

    Core inflation accelerated from 6.2% to 6.8%, fueling bets that the Bank of England will raise interest rates further.

    Economists at Berenberg said a 25 basis point hike to 4.75% in June was now their base case, followed by one cut in the fourth quarter.

    U.K. bond yields were sharply higher, with the 10-year gilt yield up 8 basis points to 4.243% and the 2-year gilt yield up 22 basis points to 4.353%.

    UK inflation falls below 10% for the first time since August

    U.K. inflation dropped sharply in April, as energy prices retreated and the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began to drop out of the annual consumer price comparison.
