Week commencing 30 May

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

Now that US earnings season is broadly at an end, aside from HP and Salesforce, the focus for the week moves to US non-farm payrolls on Friday. Chinese PMIs this week are also worth monitoring. The week starts with a US holiday, while it finishes with two UK bank holidays.

FTSE 250: Synthomer, Hill & Smith, Hilton Food, Alliance Trust, JLEN Environmental Assets, Law Debenture Corp

The table below shows the days in which the adjustment is applied, not the ex-dividend days.
