Friday Email: 15 December 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 risen around 50 points this week with the main focus being on the Brexit talks. There has been very little corporate news.
The past week saw Photo-Me produce a solid set of results and the expected 20% increase in the interim dividend.
The week ahead has no companies that we cover reporting to the market and the same for the following week as the very quiet Xmas period sets in. Going ex-dividend on Thursday for a substantial yield of 5.7% from the single dividend we have Gattaca.
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.
It’s included as part of the free DividendMax trial.

The FTSE 100 has had a flat week and is trading at roughly the same level as a week ago. It is very difficult to see where the market is going at the moment. The uncertainty over Brexit is certainly weighing and the US president is stirring things up on the West Bank whilst North Korea are saying that war is inevitable following recent US manoeuvres. None of this is welcomed by investors.
