Week commencing 20 June

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

After a week of central bank interest rates, a quieter week prevails. However the UK’s CPI data means that inflation worries won’t go away. Global flash PMIs will provide an insight into the health of various economies. Corporate data is relatively light, but includes updates from housebuilder Berkeley Group and cruise line operator Carnival.

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.
