Friday Email: 04 May 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 is trading moderately higher this week and is up around 30 points.
The past week has been quiet with little corporate reporting. Model Portfolio constituent Avon Rubber produced very good results and an increase in their interim dividend of 30%.
The week ahead continues in the same vein that we have seen recently with very little in the way of companies reporting and continued strength in the ex-dividend picture. Companies reporting next week include Compass, Imperial Brands, Tui, BT Group and TalkTalk.
Going ex-dividend this week with yields of 2% or more we have Ocean Wilsons Holdings (5.5%), Centrica (5.4%), Epwin (5.2%), Trinity Mirror (4.1%), Moss Bros (3.9%), Eddie Stobart Logistics (3.1%), Polymetal International (3%), Centaur Media (2.8%), Hostelworld (2.6%), Ibstock (2.1%) and Admiral for 2%.
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.
