Friday Email: 13 July 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 volatile week but is actually up about 80 points as comments about Brexit by Donald Trump weakened the pound and boosted overseas earners.
The past week saw some good dividend increases from Dart (43%), Adept Telecom (13%) and Photo-Me (20%).
The week ahead continues to be quiet but the interim reporting season begins the following week and it becomes very busy. Going ex-dividend for yields over 2% this coming Thursday we have BGEO (4%), Vedanta (3.8%) and Walker Greenbank for 3.4%.
New into DividendMax this week at the request of a member we have Funding Circle.
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 is pretty flat on the week and is trading down about 15 points. The trade war between the U.S and China looks set to begin with $34 billion of tariffs imposed on Chinese goods into the US overnight. The markets do not seem overly worried at this stage probably because in the grand scheme of things, these amounts are relatively small. China has stated that it would impact GDP by 0.2%. Obviously if things start to escalate, then we may have a big issue.
