Week commencing 13 February

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US and UK consumer price index (CPI) are the key events of the week, the former having global ramifications after the recent non-farm payrolls (NFP) report and hawkish comments from the Federal Reserve (Fed) speakers. Earnings from UK banks such as Barclays and NatWest dominate the week this side of the Atlantic, as earnings season in the US begins to thin out.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Imperial Brands, Pershing Square, Shell, BP

FTSE 250: Murray Trust, ICG Enterprise Trust, NCC, LXi REIT

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.
