Week commencing 11 October

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

The week begins quietly with a US market holiday, but it rapidly heats up with US earnings season upon us once more. US banks and a host of UK trading statements dominate the week. Along with this, we have UK employment data, Chinese and US inflation data and the latest set of Fed minutes.

FTSE 250: Howden Joinery, NCC, Close Brothers, Primary Health PRoperties

 

Dividends are applied after the close of the previous day’s session for each market. So, for example, the FTSE 100 goes ex-dividend on a Thursday, but the adjustment is applied at the close of the previous day, e.g. Wednesday. The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
