Friday Email: 15 March 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 pretty good week as Brexit dominated and culminated on Thursday with Parliament voting by a large majority to seek an extension to Article 50.
The past week continued to be busy with plenty of companies reporting to the market and declaring their dividends.
Next week is still reasonably busy with some big companies reporting including John Wood, Antofagasta, Kingfisher and Next.
Going ex-dividend this coming Thursday with yields in excess of 2% we have Crest Nicholson (5.5%), Hammerson (3.9%), Phoenix Group (3.4%), RBS (4.1% - 1.3% ordinary and 2.8% special), OneSavings Bank (2.6%), Blackrock World Mining trust (2.5%), Dominos Pizza (2.4%), Meggitt (2.2%) and Segro for 2%.

The FTSE 100 is unchanged on the week. It was again a very busy week as the reporting season continues. The dividend picture has been very resilient with a few specials thrown in; including one this morning from Bodycote. There was also the promise of a special dividend from Greggs with their next set of results (interims) and Cobham expects to return to the dividend list in 2019, albeit in a small way with 1p promised.
