Friday Email: 19 April 2013

Every Friday morning our lead analyst Mark Riding sends out his weekly run-down and upcoming events in the investor calendar, like this one:

The market has had a torrid time this week falling 200 points. The miners continue to be a drag on the index as fears over slowing world growth have surfaced. Any small miss on Chinese GDP growth has a disproportionate effect on mining stocks. I think people forget that China is now growing against a pretty big base so 7% is still very significant. At some point we will need to drop the obsession with growth.

A whole raft of companies trade without the dividend this Wednesday including some of our dividend of the week selections notably Man Group, Legal & General and Centrica. In addition to those three, we have Drax, Balfour Beatty, Tesco, National Express, UBM, Intu properties, Old Mutual, Rolls Royce, Aggreko, Kazakhmys, Rexam, greggs, Tullet Prebon, Rathbone, Kentz, Hansteen, informa and Playtech.

This week marked the first time in over a quarter of a century that Tesco has not produced a full year dividend increase.
