Friday Email: 07 December 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 bad week falling almost 5% on the lack of progress in Parliament. Such are the wider fears the even a weak pound is no longer helping the FTSE 100 as it has done since the Brexit vote. The market is starting to think of General Elections and all that that could potentially entail.

The past week was quiet and the week ahead is too with only a handful of companies reporting including old favourite Photo-me who have had a bad year due to problems (now being resolved) in their Japanese subsidiary. This has seen their yield rise to 8%, so the numbers and outlook statement should make interesting reading on Monday.

Going ex dividend on Thursday with yields of 2% or more we have Marstons (4.9%), N Brown (2.4%), Sirius Real Estate (2.4%), Numis (2.3%), Aeorema (2.3%), Halfords (2.2%) and 3i for 2%.
