Week commencing 25 April

Chris Beauchamp’s insight

Earnings from the UK, Europe and the US come through thick and fast this week, and from a host of sectors. Big tech names like Apple report, along with UK banks and Sainsbury’s. Meanwhile initial readings on Q1 GDP dominate the latter half of the week and will provide interest and volatility for the dollar and the euro in particular.

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