Friday Email: 29 June 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 made a very poor start to the week by falling 150 points on Monday but has since recovered and is now trading only slightly up on the week.
From a reporting perspective there was very little this past week and this continues into next week and the following weeks until the interim reporting season kicks in on the week beginning 23rd July.
Going ex-dividend in the coming week with yields in excess of 2% we have N Brown Group (5.4%), Pennon Group (3.4%), Dairy Crest (3.4%), De La Rue (3%) and Polar Capital with 3%.
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.

The FTSE 100 has fallen around 50 points this week in volatile trading caused by the threat of a growing trade war between the U.S. and the rest of the world. As from today the EU will impose tariffs on some U.S. goods in response to the tariffs set by the US on steel and aluminium. The markets do not like it and reacted badly early this week only to recover midweek. Overall, the fall in the markets has been relatively muted which suggests that the markets do not take this too seriously for now!
