Week commencing 9 January

Chris Beauchamp's insight

Earnings season is upon markets once again, with US banks kicking off the quarter four (Q4) reporting period at the end of this week. UK trading statements come through thick and fast during the week as well, from a host of companies, including Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Marks & Spencer. While it is a less frenetic week on the economic front, consumer price index (CPI) figures from the US and China will keep the global focus on the key issue of inflation.

Dividends

FTSE 100: SSE, Sage, Ashtead

FTSE 250: None

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.
