Friday Email: 02 September 2016
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 Stock market has endured a poor (shortened) week. In spite of good starts most mornings, the sellers have emerged and by the close of play we are down. This has led to a fall of over 100 points on the FTSE 100 this week. Some say that September is the worst month for the markets, but this is only an average so it is not a clear message to sell in my view.
Double digit dividend increases this past week came from Bunzl (11%), James Fisher (10%) and the star performer was Arrow Global with a 58% increase in its 2016 interim dividend.
The week ahead sees a large number of companies go ex-dividend and a small number of companies reporting to the market.
The Friday email is delivered to over 20,000 subscriber’s every week, and remains a widely read run-down of recent events and what investors can expect in the week ahead written by our chief analyst Mark Riding.
