Friday Email: 27 February 2015

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

That was a hugely busy week that provided investors with all time closing highs on the FTSE 100 index, a nice quantity of special dividends and no shortage of big dividend increases for income seekers to get their teeth into. The specials came from Jupiter, synthomer, bodycote and elementis.

Double digit increases came from Rightmove, Playtech, Spirent, Domino's Pizza, Howden (over 50%) Synthomer, RPS, Barratt, St James' Place (50%), Restaurant Group, Capita, Rentokil, International Personal Finance, Man Group, Henderson, Elementis, Providend Financial, Genus, Mondi, Unite (over 100%), Bovis Homes (over 100%) and Countrywide (over 100%)

Lloyds bank returned to the dividend list but it has been so long since they paid a dividend that they have forgotten what to do, so we cannot update DividendMax at the moment as they neglected to provide an ex-dividend or payment date.

The week ahead continues to be very busy but not as intensive as last week. I have been to the city a couple of times this week and there is a real buzz about the place. Once the election is out of the way, the stock market could well have a very good year. It is not doing too badly as we face the election and politicians aside, companies are delivering very good results.
