Week commencing 21 November

Chris Beauchamp's insight

The week sees the release of minutes from the latest Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting, plus the monthly flash purchasing managers indexes (PMIs) from around the globe. Thanksgiving in the US means it will be a quiet second half of the week, though Compass, AO World and Kingfisher will all be of interest to UK equity markets.

Dividends

FTSE 100: RS Group, British Land, National Grid, Scottish Mortgage Inv Trust, Imperial Brands, Vodafone, Land Securities

FTSE 250: Diversified Energy Co, Volution, 3i Infrastructure, Witan Inv Trust, Tate & Lyle, Urban Logistics, Kainos, HICL Infrastructure, Great Portland Estates

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.
