Friday Email: 01 February 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 had a good week and has risen around 200 points to trade just shy of the 7000 mark. Brexit uncertainty continues to frustrate just about everybody. China and the United States are currently talking things up and are rushing to get a trade deal by March 1st. That looks challenging to achieve.
The past week has seen a small number of companies reporting their dividends and this level of activity continues for the next two weeks before things get very busy.
Going ex-dividend next week for yields in excess of 2%, we have Elegant hotels (3.5%) and Stock Spirits Group for 2.3%.
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.
