easyJet on Tuesday took a page out of Ryanair's book by unveiling a special dividend which led to a more than doubling of its dividend yield to six per cent, thanks to its 50 per cent jump in pre-tax profits for the year ended September. Is that where the similarities end? After all, easyJet sees none of the demand weakness which its Irish rival has been reporting of late. That may be because a third of easyJet's capacity touches on France, Italy and Switzerland, where available seats overall are still expected to fall this winter (compared with the general intra-European rise), allowing the UK carrier to up its capacity and grab shares. Ryanair, nevertheless, retains cost advantages, and will fight back. Thus, another third of easyJet's capacity competes with its Irish rival on a city-pair basis although under 5 per cent in terms of direct routes. EasyJet shares have also outflown its rival's and, on 13 times 2013-14 earnings, are no longer cheaper. The gain is deserved. Still, going forward, Ryanair may yet have an edge left, says The Financial Times' Lex column.

Petrofac's shares fell on Monday after reporting delays to two major contracts and downgrading its profit forecast for next year. With the contracts now not expected to start until 2014, investors are facing more risk as they have an uncomfortable year-long wait before a major ramp up in work, The Daily Telegraph's Questor column noted. Petrofac's share price has become increasingly reliant on the two delayed projects, the $2.5bn Upper Zakum project in Abu Dhabi, and the Berantai contract in Malaysia. "Questor was wrong to keep Petrofac as a buy at £13.73 in August as, since then, shares have fallen 13%," Questor said. "Now, with little growth expected next year and shares trading at 12.3 times adjusted forecast earnings, falling to 9.8 times in 2015, they don't represent a compelling investment case. Hold."
