Week commencing 6 February

Chris Beauchamp's insight

After the excitement of last week, things calm down somewhat, but we still have the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) meeting, plus Chinese consumer price index (CPI) and UK gross domestic product (GDP). Meanwhile, after the big tech earnings of last week, which were a distinctly mixed bag, this week we have numbers from BP, British American Tobacco, Disney and Uber.

Dividends

FTSE 100: None

FTSE 250: Virgin Money, GCP Infrastructure, Impax, Target Healthcare

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.
