Friday Email: 13 October 2017

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 struggled for any momentum this week after the surge last week. It is currently trading at around the level it began the week.

The past week has been very quiet on the corporate front. Decent dividend increases came from Proactis, Ted Baker, Volution and WH Smith.

The week ahead continues in much the same vein with only a handful of comapanies reporting including our Model Portfolio selection, Bellway

which is up 44% so far this year. We focussed on the housebuilders at the beginning of the year as their ratings had plummetted and their dividends

were rising. All three selections (the others being Barratt and Crest Nicholson) have performed extremely well.

Decent ex-dividends in the coming week come from Capita (2%) and Intu (2%).
