Friday Email: 16 November 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 fallen approx. 40 points this week. Yesterday was a big day in the world of politics as the Brexit situation comes to a head. The picture looks pretty bleak as of today with no apparent solution to this emerging from parliament. It feels like it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
The past week was very busy with double digit dividend increases coming from Dart Group, Avon Rubber, Workspace, AdEPT Technology, Land Securities, B&M European Value Retail and DCC.
The week ahead is also very busy with plenty of companies due to declare their dividends. Companies going ex-dividend this Thursday for yields in excess of 2% include Evraz (4.6%), Vodafone (2.7%), Imperial Brands (2.5%) and VPC Speciality Lending with 2.5%.
New into DividendMax this week at the request of members we have International Biotechnology Trust, Funding Circle Holdings and Kraft Heinz.
