Busy earnings season Thursday: ASOS, Wood Group and Tesco

If you are into corporate updates it is an interesting day today and loads to write about. Here is the exciting news: it is going to be like this for over the next couple of months. It has always been thus over the last twenty-five plus years I have been looking at the U.K. markets. I guess I should start with ASOS (ASC), which may have formally talked about a four month trading update to the end of December, but a second headline it gave, observing that the company ‘announces intended move to London Stock Exchange’s main market’, is kind of interesting too.

Don’t worry, be excited ahead of a busy corporate earnings week

A week into January and I see that the weekend press has plenty of stories about the European Central Bank executive who ‘warns green energy push will drive inflation higher’, as well as the UK's former vaccines minister who said it would be ‘helpful’ to cut the self-isolation period to five days.  Otherwise there is the apparent hassle of the wealth of the top 1% is 230 times higher than the poorest 10%.  Such analytical excitement (not).

Sunday musings about Asia (Prudential) and ESG focus (Asos)

It is going to be a busy next week in the markets.  I look forward to that but first a couple of bits of Sunday musing. Five weeks ago here I was thinking about Prudential (PRU) ‘which might have been founded in London in May 1848, but today (post the spin-off of M&G (MNG)) is all about its US and Asian insurance and related business focus’.  Well, as you might have read in the last week, the company’s US division Jackson Financial has formally split and the company is an independent organisation listed on the New York Stock Exchange and technically ‘Prudential shareholders are entitled to receive one share of Jackson’s Class A common stock for every 40 Prudential shares they hold’.
