Talk of Emblaze Debut Sets the Market on Fire; MARKET REPORT


Byline: GEOFF FOSTER

SHARES of cash-rich, Israeli-based mobile technology company Emblaze could soon be on fire.

Industry gossip suggests it is on the verge of making its long-awaited breakthrough into the UK market by signing a 'significant' order with a leading mobile phone operator.

Emblaze's specially-modified handsets should be on the market in time for the crucial pre-Christmas sales period.

The close was little changed at 1141/2p, but dealers believe confirmation of a major contract would certainly get the stock buzzing.

Elsewhere, dealers became a bit twitchy about US inflation and the growing prospect of further interest rate rises across the pond. It followed news of an oil-fuelled 1.9pc jump in producer prices last month - the biggest leap in 31 years.

The Footsie lost an initial 16.7 point gain to finish 22.6 points off at 5263.9.

Wall Street had its early fall on the producer prices data cushioned by a raft of favourable earnings reports from IBM, 3M, United Technologies, Wells Fargo and Merrill Lynch.

Mining stocks struck a rich seam as the record copper price sparked renewed demand for Rio Tinto, 24p better at 2218p, and Antofagasta, 9p dearer at 1479p. …
