Friday Email: 18 December 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 FTSE 100 has recovered by 4% from the low achieved on Tuesday morning of 5874 to stand at 6115 by the close of play on Thursday. The anticipated rise in interest rates in the US has finally happened and no doubt we will start to think of the same over here, probably in the middle of next year. 

The past week was very quiet. The most notable event from an earnings and dividend perspective was the 30% increase in its interim dividend by Dixons Carphone.

The week ahead sees no companies that we cover reporting to the market in what is going to be the quietest week of the year for earnings reports.
