The FTSE 100 has fallen approx. 40 points this week. Yesterday was a big day in the world of politics as the Brexit situation comes to a head. The picture looks pretty bleak as of today with no apparent solution to this emerging from parliament. It feels like it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

The past week was very busy with double digit dividend increases coming from Dart Group, Avon Rubber, Workspace, AdEPT Technology, Land Securities, B&M European Value Retail and DCC.

The week ahead is also very busy with plenty of companies due to declare their dividends. Companies going ex-dividend this Thursday for yields in excess of 2% include Evraz (4.6%), Vodafone (2.7%), Imperial Brands (2.5%) and VPC Speciality Lending with 2.5%.

New into DividendMax this week at the request of members we have International Biotechnology Trust, Funding Circle Holdings and Kraft Heinz.
