Friday Email: 19 October 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 moderate week rising to 7020. The markets have had a rough time over the past weeks due to fears over US interest rates and the stalling Brexit talks. Chinese growth figures were also very slightly below market expectations.
The past week was very quiet and so is the week ahead. October is always a very quiet month for actual reporting and dividend declarations but there are always plenty of trading statements. From a reporting perspective, things pick up very strongly in the week beginning 5th November.
There are no big ex-dividends this coming Thursday.
New into DividendMax this week at the request of members we have Shanta Gold and Palace Capital.
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.
