Friday Email: 10 May 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 markets have continued their strength this past week and we continue to look for a correction. Our dividend of the week was deliberately defensive reflecting our caution. Sage Group was the star of the week posting yet another dividend increase and also announcing a special dividend amounting to about 5% of their market capitalisation, details of which will follow later and you can be sure that we will highlight this to DividendMax users as soon as they emerge.
Our work on the website continues and we will hopefully reveal our new look homepage and optimizer next week.
The Friday email is delivered to over 20,000 subscriber’s every week, and remains a widely read run-down of recent events and what investors can expect in the week ahead written by our chief analyst Mark Riding.
It’s included as part of the free DividendMax trial.

The markets continue trade in a narrow trading range and are showing good resiliance. We are expecting a fall and it is a brave investor who would pile in at these levels. That said, I have never quite understood the sell in May adage from a dividend perspective as it the biggest month for dividends with 68 companies in the UK going ex in the rest of May.
