Friday Email: 12 June 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 has had a bad week falling over 6% mainly due to a large fall yesterday when selling pressure became intense, especially in the U.S. This was due to fears over a second wave of the virus after a number of U.S states reported an uptick in cases following recent relaxation of lockdown.
The past week was quite busy and saw a number of dividend declarations. The week ahead is quieter.
Going ex-dividend this coming Thursday with yields over 2% we have T.Clarke (3.5%), Tate & Lyle (3.1%), S&U (3%), Intermediate Capital Group (2.9%), TR Proprty Investment trust and Pets at Home 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.

We would like to apologise for the lack of Friday emails over the past 6 weeks. We have had to focus on our data as the Covid crisis has impacted dividends significantly and rapidly. The FTSE 100 has started to recover from the huge fall we saw in March when the FTSE 100 had fallen from a high of 7645 to below 5000 at 4993. It is now trading at 6412, up 28% from the March lowpoint.
