Friday Email: 17 July 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:

After a weekend that saw the Greek crisis head towards resolution, the FTSE 100 has risen steadily from Fridays close of 6673 to Thursdays close of 6796, up 123 points as the measures for Greece are slowly put in place.

On the corporate front the past week was very quiet with only four companies that we cover reporting. Dixons Carphone produced a big dividend increase of 42%, which was the highlight. Carnival cruises also increased its quarterly dividend for the first time in a long time by 20% from 25 cents (US) to 30 cents.

The week ahead sees the start of the interim reporting season which for me always gives you a feel for the overall outcome for individual companies and the markets as a whole for the year. It is a relatively quiet week which becomes extremely busy in the week beginning 27th July. Companies going ex-dividend in the week ahead include the 3.81% SSE final dividend and the 2.25% GVC dividend which is effectively a quarterly dividend.

There was one request for an addition to DividendMax this week and that was AdEPT Telecom
