Among this week’s likes and dislikes is a building materials company, an entertainment retailer and a bank.

Michael McCarthy of CMC markets likes James Hardie (JHX) this week. “After a disappointing H1 profit on increased turnover, and the announcement of a European acquisition, the market first sold then bought JHX,” says McCarthy.
