Friday Email: 30 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 is up around 35 points on the week.
The past week has been relatively busy with some good dividend increases.
The week ahead is much quieter as we head into December, which from a reporting perspective is the quietest month in the financial calendar.
Going ex-dividend this Thursday with yields of 2% or more we have DFS (3.5%), Premier Asset Management (2.6%), Britvic (2.6%), Royal Mail (2.5%), Daily Mail & General Trust (2.3%), Investec (2.3%), Pets at home (2.1%) and finally Paypoint who will pay an ordinary and a special dividend for a combined 3.5%.
Following several weeks of work we have put live our updated portfolio management tool; GeneratorMax.
It's now so much easier to add share holdings and immediately see your dividend payments for the next 2 years. Also you can track the performance of each holding and your total porfolio capital gains and total gain, including dividends.
We believe it's a much better design making it more user-friendly and intuitive. Big thanks to those who have provided feedback, I know many of you have been waiting a long time for this and your feedback is gratefully received.
Finally, we bumped into Steve Haysom, the CEO at DIY Investor last week who is a big fan of DividendMax. Their mantra is DIY Investor - informing and engaging private investors. Their magazine provides plenty of interesting and informative articles. Their website can be found here http://www.diyinvestor.net/
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.
