Friday Email: 31 July 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 down just over a hundred points this week. The dividend picture has been mixed with a good number of companies choosing to continue with their dividend cuts and some companies choosing to pay previously cancelled Final dividends with their interim dividends. BAE systems and Ultra Electronics both did this. Vesuvius, Equiniti, Inchcape, Fuller Smith and Turner and RSA Group all decided to continue with their dividend cuts.
The past week was very busy and it continues into next week.
Going ex dividend this coming Thursday with yields of 2% or more from the single dividend we have CMC Markets (3.8%), Jupiter Fund Management (3.4%), Man Group (3%), Rio Timto (2.6%), IMI (2.5%) and FDM for 2%.
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.

The FTSE 100 has fallen approximately 175 points this week. There has been a glimmer of hope for dividend investors as Nichols, Bodycote yesterday and IMI today reinstated dividends that were cancelled earlier in the year.
