Friday Email: 18 January 2019
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 been ok this week given the political mess in the UK. It has fallen around 40 points and is up this morning on talk that the U.S.-China trade talks are improving.
Over here, earlier this week, the Brexit meaningful vote came out as expected with a defeat for the government, albeit much more brutal than expected. The predictable vote of no confidence came and as expected, the government won, so no shocks for the markets from Parliament this week. The markets reacted reasonably well and the pound rose as traders speculated that a softer Brexit would result.
The week ahead continues to be very quiet from a corporate perspective with only a few companies reporting to the market.
Going ex-dividend this week for a yield of 2.5% we have Stagecoach.
