Ex-dividends and potential FTSE 100 changes

By Chris Bailey | Thursday 24 August 2023

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Many, many years ago, I panicked when a significant investment of the hedge fund I was working for at the time started one Thursday morning significantly down…until I realised it had just gone ex-dividend. So, if you own shares in Aviva (AV.), Mondi (MNDI), Diageo (DGE), Haleon (HLN), Ibstock (IBST), Auto Trader (AUTO), Land Securities (LAND), Legal & General (LGEN) and a bunch of other stocks do not panic. I could also flip it around the other way, and observe that you should not get overly excited about yesterday evening’s results from the Silicon Valley favourite, Nvidia.
