Friday Email: 28 February 2020
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 is having a dreadful week and has fallen over 11% from 7403 to 6580. The fear of a serious impact on the global economy from the Corona virus has impacted investors causing large falls on stock markets globally.
The past week has been very very busy with large numbers of companies reporting; the dividend picture remains very good.
The week ahead is also very busy with plenty of companies reporting.
Going ex-dividend this coming Thursday with yields from the single dividend in excess of 2% we have Evraz (8.6%), Rio Tinto (4.5%), Persimmon (4%), BHP Group (3.3%), Diversified Gas and Oil (2.9%), RSA Insurance (2.9%), Urban Logistics (2.6%), Alumasc (2.5%), McCarthy and Stone (2.4%), City of London Investment group (2.3%) and Regional REIT for 2.1%.
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.
