Week commencing 13 May

Chris Beauchamp's insight

US inflation, particularly consumer price index (CPI), will be the main events of the week, though the UK employment data and German ZEW will also be worth monitoring. Key earnings this week include Vodafone in the UK, and Siemens in Europe, plus Walmart in the US.

Dividends

FTSE 100: Pershing Square, Bunzl, Kingfisher, Tesco, Unilever, Whitbread, GSK, Shell, BP

FTSE 250: Murray Income Trust, RHI Magnesita, Spectris, PageGroup, Balfour Beatty, Essentra

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.
