The FTSE 100 opened today with a flurry of corporate news; Jet2 reported a significant profit increase, Virgin Money (LON: VM ) UK revealed a decrease in earnings, and Nissan (OTC: NSANY ) is gearing up for a major investment announcement.

Jet2, the British airline and package holiday provider, celebrated a substantial 32% profit surge this semester, attributing the growth to robust demand for its holiday packages. This performance stands in stark contrast to Virgin Money UK, which has seen its profits dip down to £593 million. In response to its financial results, Virgin Money has initiated a share buyback program valued at £150 million.

In consumer news, Ofgem has indicated that UK households should brace for an increase in energy bills. Starting this January, the average bill is expected to climb by £94, reaching £1,928. This development adds to the growing concerns over the cost of living crisis affecting many consumers.

Looking ahead to tomorrow, the automotive sector is poised for Nissan's announcement regarding its Sunderland plant. The company is expected to unveil plans for a £1 billion investment to produce two new electric vehicles (EVs), signaling a significant commitment to the UK's automotive manufacturing industry and the broader push towards EV adoption.
