Week commencing 6 November

Chris Beauchamp's insight

After the busy weeks of late October and early November, calm descends. Most major companies have reported in the US, though Disney and Uber will be worth watching. In the UK, pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca updates the market with third quarter (Q3) figures. The key event of the week may be the Australian rate decision, with rates expected to rise again, in contrast to other major central banks that have left rate unchanged.

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.
