Simon Jones, CEO of Investing Reviews, said:
“It is always useful to know which stocks are generating interest, as it may provide insight into which stocks may experience higher trading volumes and price swings.
BAE Systems has the most searched FTSE 100 stock in 2023 and is the most searched stock in 20 out of 58 of the surveyed UK locales. This stands to reason, as BAE Systems’ stock has experienced a large increase in price since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began in February 2022. This is due to BAE Systems being one of the UK’s primary defence companies, who have also produced a large part of the equipment the UK has given to Ukraine in military aid.”
