Week commencing 9 October

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US earnings season begins this week, providing the main driver of activity for the next month or so in equity markets. US consumer price index (CPI) is also on the calendar for the week, along with producer price inflation. Chinese inflation and UK gross domestic product (GDP) round out the week of major events.

FTSE 250: Senior, Persimmon, Breedon, Ruffer, Primary Health Properties, Supermarket Income 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.
