Building companies such as Barratt Developments and Beazer Homes are likely to be the focus this week when they report earnings. Tarmac and Ibstock will also publish results.
Shares in RMC Group, Britain's biggest building materials company, dropped 5.3 per cent on Thursday after the company warned it expects a decline in sales in Germany, its largest market, as the pound gained against the mark. Other building companies such as Redland, with significant overseas earnings, may be hurt for similar reasons.
