Week commencing 24 October

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Around half the total market capitalization of the S&P 500 reports earnings this week, in a range of sectors, including Twitter, Chevron, Alphabet, Meta, Apple and Amazon. UK banks also report figures, providing plenty for investors to watch. In addition, we have rate decisions from the central banks of Canada, the eurozone and Japan. The monthly flash purchasing managers index (PMIs) are also published, plus Q3 GDP from the US and Germany.

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.
