Friday Email: 12 June 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:

The week past saw the market falling until Wednesday worried about the talks with Greece, but then it rallied to end up fairly flat on the week. The FTSE 100 index is currently trading at around 6825. Only four dividend declarations came this week with RPC group (dividend up 12%), WS Atkins (8.1%) Oxford Instruments (4.8%) and Halma increased its full year dividend by more than 5% for the 35th consecutive year. (7% this time)

The week ahead continues to be quiet although Wednesday brings final results from Berkeley Group who we highlighted to members a while back. Betfair also report on Wednesday. Going ex-dividend this week we have ten companies with no particular highlight.

In the DividendMax membership, we have some pretty shrewd investors so it is always worth having a look at stocks that members request to be added into DividendMax. This week we have Conviviality Retail (CVR) and WYG (WYG), both AIM stocks so as always with AIM stocks, research carefully.
