The FTSE 100 has had a volatile week but is actually up about 80 points as comments about Brexit by Donald Trump weakened the pound and boosted overseas earners.

The past week saw some good dividend increases from Dart (43%), Adept Telecom (13%) and Photo-Me (20%).

The week ahead continues to be quiet but the interim reporting season begins the following week and it becomes very busy. Going ex-dividend for yields over 2% this coming Thursday we have BGEO (4%), Vedanta (3.8%) and Walker Greenbank for 3.4%.
