The FTSE 100 is down about 70 points on the week.

The past week was extremely busy with a large number of dividend declarations. Lloyds Banking Group pleased with a share buyback on top of our expected dividend increase. The miners continued to impress as Glencore increased their final dividend by much more than we were expecting. (from 3.5 cents to 10 cents)

Next week is busier still with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday being very active from a reporting perspective with another big week of dividend declarations from across the board. Going ex-dividend we have the long awaited Aveva special dividend as a result of the merger with Schneider. Back into more normal dividend territory going ex-dividend on Thursday we have decent yields from Rio Tinto (3.2%), Easyjet (2.4%), Hansard Global (2.2%), RSA (2.1%) and City of London Investment group for 2.1%.
