Friday Email: 19 January 2018
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 had a relatively poor week falling over 70 points. There has been little in the way of corporate news with the main headlines focussed on the demise of Carillion. This is bad news for investors as it dents confidence badly if they cannot believe what is being reported and audited. That said, many hedge funds spotted the oncoming failure.
The past week has been very dull as is often the case in 'dry January' from a formal company reporting perspective. There have been plenty of trading updates, but they do not bring dividend announcements.
The week ahead is pretty similar to last week before the reporting season starts slowly in the week beginning the 29th January and becomes very busy in February and March.
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.
