Week commencing 16 January

Chris Beauchamp's insight

The week begins quietly with US markets closed, but US earnings season gets busier from here. Netflix, American Airlines and the banks dominate the week. In the UK the flood of Christmas trading statements continues. In economic data we have Chinese GDP, UK consumer price index (CPI), the German ZEW reading and a rate decision from the Bank of Japan (BoJ).

Dividends

FTSE 250: Diploma, Future, AJ Bell, Victrex, Games Workshop

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.
