The Week Ahead: Antofagasta, Petrofac and 888 Holdings among companies giving results in four-day week
Tuesday 26 August 2014
It may be a four-day week but there’s a slew of companies putting out results.
First up today is the Chilean mining giant Antofagasta with second-quarter figures. The company has been hit by falling copper prices, and Sheridan Admans at The Share Centre says investors will expect an update on exploration prospects.
The oilfield services group Petrofac, office provider Regus, media group UTV, advertising giant WPP, outsourcer Bunzl and engineer Kentz all have half-year figures today. Stagecoach will be providing a management update, while the latest mortgage approval figures are due.
Tomorrow the online gaming group 888 Holdings hands in its half-year figures, along with APR Energy, the newly listed specialist care provider Cambian Group, energy services company Cape, Chime Communications, estate agent Foxtons, building materials group Grafton, miner Evraz, John Laing Infrastructure and Polymetal International.
On Thursday come interim figures from the debt collector Arrow Global, intellectual property business IP Group, stone mason Marshalls, investment company Melrose Industries, Nostrum Oil & Gas, Paddy Power, Russian goldminer Petropavlovsk, Playtech, Salamander Energy, technology group Servelec, oil and gas explorer Soco International, media group STV, student-accommodation company Unite and printing group Xaar.
Recruiter Hays also has full-year figures, with a profit before exceptional costs of £140.5m expected, up from £126m last year.
Friday brings half-year results from the struggling online gaming group bwin.party. The shares have tumbled since May amid a disappointing entry into the US, a management shake-up and calls for a strategy change from the activist investor SpringOwl.
The online sports rights group Perform delivers first-half results on Friday, along with Computacenter, industrial laundry group Berendsen, floor-covering distributor Headlam, equipment provider Lavendon, and The Restaurant Group. Stobart Group has a trading update.
