Moneysupermarket trading well

Comparison site Moneysupermarket.com said yesterday it expects earnings to rise by 20 per cent, after trading well in the fourth quarter. The group, which offers price comparisons on insurance, savings and loans and home utilities on its site, said it expects its earnings to rise in line with expectations to around £178m. This was helped by a 19 per cent rise in revenues, which the group put down to a higher spend on marketing.
