Week commencing 21 February

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

The week begins quietly with a holiday in the US, but flash PMIs from around the globe will provide important updates on the economic recovery. US durable goods orders and consumer sentiment are other key events on the economic side, while in the UK plenty of full year results are released, including from major banks Lloyds and Barclays and miners Rio Tinto and Anglo American.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline, AstraZeneca, Unilever

FTSE 250: Dunelm, Redrow, Witan Inv Trust

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.
