Friday Email: 24 August 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 flat on the week and is trading at 7560. The markets are watching the trade talks with the US and China, which do not look like they will be resolved quickly. The situation with President Trump is unsettling US markets, but not significantly at this stage with the Dow still trading near all time highs. Meanwhile, the Brexit arguments continue to prolong the agony and you get the feeling that this situation is becoming increasingly difficult to resolve.

From a company reporting perspective the past week has been quieter in the UK as the reporting season winds down.

The week ahead is quieter still with only 10 companies that we cover reporting to the market.

Going ex dividend on Thursday there are plenty of companies but only two with yields over 2% (VPC speciality lending (2.4%) and Hammerson for 2.3%)

New into DividendMax at the request of a member we have Portmeirion.
