Friday Email: 18 April 2014

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

A decent rally on Thursday took the market 40 points higher for the week otherwise we were headed for another flat one. The bombed out food retailing sector was given a lift by Tesco as its shares climbed from 282p to 297p on the day of its results, but the euphoria evaporated by Thursday and the shares ended up  7p on the week. The other companies reporting this week did little to excite on the dividend front with Sports Direct increasing by 3% and Debenhams only holding their interim at last years level. Another quiet week lies ahead with only a couple of companies reporting to the market including Associated British Foods. However, we will see a lot of trading ststements next week.

The ex-dividend day on Wednesday is also very busy with over 20 companies that we cover going ex. Notable yields come from Man Group, Centrica, Old Mutual, Hansteen Holdings, Legal & General and Tullet Prebon; all yielding around 3% from the one dividend. Antofagasta will yield 6.5% which is pretty exceptional for a single dividend.
