Framlington World Cup challenge

Would you like to win a Dolby wide-screen TV and Chandler Chair? Here is your last chance to get your hands on them as Framlington has teamed up with Money Marketing to keep you on the edge of your seat in the run-up to the 2002 World Cup in Japan & Korea.

It could not be easier to enter our new competition. We have taken the eight World Cup groups and found stock indices for as many countries as we can. All you have to do is pick one country from each group, fill out the entry from at the bottom of the page and send it to Fantasy League and they will do the rest. Your eight choices will be monitored and their percentage gain or loss on a weekly basis will be added to your total gain/loss over the weeks to produce a league table.

This table will be published weekly in Money Marketing and Framlington will be giving prizes away each month and at the end of the competition for the most successful manager. You will find Framlington&#39s views on the countries competing in the World Cup on this page. We hope you find it to be a useful guide.

As well as having the choice of some recognisable names in the stock indices guide, there are also a few rogue indices in there. Who knows, maybe picking Nigeria in group F will give your selections a lift over the next few months. First prize is a wonderful Dolby widescreen TV and La-z-boy chair.

This is the ultimate way to watch the World Cup in style. Sit back and enjoy the competition from the luxury of a chair with built-in fridge and including heat and massage settings. Now you are comfortable, what better way to view the action then on a big screen? See every goal in detail and with the improved sound quality, you will even be able to learn the worlds to the Belgian national anthem.

Each monthly winner will get an England shirt and crate of beer courtesy of Framlington and, of course, all winners will get their name in lights on these very pages! The league table of the top 100 teams will be displayed in Money Marketing every Thursday and winners will be announced the week after each monthly game period.

So, what are you waiting for? Fill in a form and send it away today. You will get confirmation from Framlington and Fantasy League within a week. If you need any assistance, you can call Fantasy League on 020 7387 0099. The helpline will not give out individual scores during the competition or enter into discussions regarding the game mechanic or points allocation. Winners will be informed by phone in due course. Winners cannot be confirmed via the helpline.

Value remains within European equities

By Rob Burnett, Neptune European Opportunities Fund

In recent months, investors have become more pessimistic about both the European and the US economic outlook and yet stockmarkets have pushed on to new highs. Some would argue that this is a worrying divergence. We would take the opposite view. This appears to be classic bull market behaviour. A wall of worry has been rebuilt, and stockmarket resilience should be taken as a sign of strength. The market is discounting an improving economic outlook ahead, particularly in the south of Europe.
