UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Sept. 28

    Sept 28 - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 64 points higher
at 5,906 on Monday, according to financial bookmakers.
    * ROLLS-ROYCE: Rolls-Royce said on Friday that no final decision had
been made on allotting shares to potential investors, "including any sovereign
wealth fund", as the British engineering firm was still reviewing all available
funding options.
    * PREMIER OIL: Premier Oil is asking debt holders to extend a waiver
on its borrowing terms beyond Sept. 30 while it tries to convince at least 75%
of its creditors to back a plan to raise fresh equity, a source with knowledge
of the matter said on Friday.
    * GOLD: Gold edged up on Monday as the dollar slipped off a two-month peak
it hit last week, due to caution as political uncertainty built ahead of the
first presidential election debate between U.S. President Donald Trump and his
Democratic rival Joe Biden.
    * OIL: Oil prices dipped on Monday as rising coronavirus cases upset hopes
for a smooth recovery in fuel demand, with the main crude benchmarks on track
for their first monthly falls in multiple months after last week's slips.

    * The UK blue-chip index closed 0.3% lower on Friday, but a near 44%
surge in bookmaker William Hill on takeover offers lifted consumer stocks on
Friday, helping UK shares outperform European peers and end a tumultuous week on
a high note.
