Week commencing 8 November

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

The week sees the release of initial GDP figures for the UK, along with US and Chinese CPI and the German ZEW figure. On the earnings front things are quietening down, although we do have first half figures from M&S, Burberry and WHSmith in the UK.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Shell (A & B), BP, Sainsbury’s

FTSE 250: ICG Enterprise Trust, Greencoat UK Wind, Softcat, Airtel Africa

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.
