Week commencing 15 January

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US banks continue to report this week, though other major names are absent as earnings season quietens down almost as soon as it began last week. US markets are closed on Monday, providing a quieter start to the week, but UK companies will be issuing more quarter-four (Q4) and Christmas trading statements. Meanwhile, UK data is in focus, thanks to the trio of employment, inflation and retail sales.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Compass, Diploma, B&M European Value Retail

FTSE 250: Future, Games Workshop

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.
