Friday Email: 15 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 rising by approximately 130 points.
The past week has seen a steady steam of dividend declarations including Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS Group) this morning who also declared a special dividend for a total of 11p.
The week ahead is also very busy with plenty of results being announced including the very widely held Lloyds Bank. Other FTSE 100 companies reporting next week include Reckitt Benckiser, Glencore, Pearson, Anglo American, BAE Systems, Barclays and RELX.
Going ex-dividend in the coming week for yields in excess of 2% we have Plus 500, who disappointed investors with their final results earlier this week. The yield is 4.3%. We also have Imperial Brands yielding 2.5%.
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.
