Is UK dividend growth sustainable, Bovis and Berkeley merger speculation and how has Trump cost Paddy Power Betfair £5m?
UK dividends rose 6.6% in the last quarter of 2016 - great news for investors who focus on getting an income from their portfolios, but can it be sustained? And speculation that housebuilders Bovis and Berkeley would merge was triggered by Schroder, Bovis' second largest shareholder, writing to Berkeley suggesting a deal. Ed Bowsher spoke to Ken Odeluga, market analyst at City Index, for more on these and other market stories.
