Week commencing 23 January

Chris Beauchamp's insight

A first look at Q4 US GDP is perhaps the main economic event of the week, along with the monthly German IFO figure. But earnings season is still the big driver – Microsoft, Tesla, IBM, Boeing, Intel and American Airlines all publish figures. In the UK, watch out for Diageo’s half-year numbers, plus JD Wetherspoon and Tullow Oil.

Dividends

FTSE 100: None

FTSE 250: Foresight Solar, Pennon, City of London Inv Trust

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.
