ZOOPLA
Berenberg Bank initiated coverage of the property portal with a “buy” rating and a target price of 250p. It believes that the disturbance to Zoopla from new competitor, Agents Mutual, will only be short-term, and could create a buying opportunity for Zoopla.

DFS 
Jeffries initiated coverage of DFS, with a “Buy” rating and a target price of 330p. Investments in manufacturing, brand marketing and a fully integrated multi-channel offer by the furniture retail leave it very well placed to take advantage of an upturn in big ticket consumer spending.
