Market Report: Domino's to deliver a topping sales rise

Today

The City will start the week by tucking into Domino's half-year results. The pizza delivery group is expected to have been boosted by our wet summer, while trading should also have been helped by Euro 2012, and Panmure Gordon predicts Domino's like-for-like sales for the period will be up 6.9 per cent.

Results/Updates: Aberdeen Asset Management, African Barrick Gold, Aquarius Platinum, Dialight, Domino's Pizza, Filtronic, Hammerson, Senior and XP Power.

Tomorrow

After revealing last week that it has agreed to sell its handset business for $310m (£198.3m), CSR will be back in the spotlight tomorrow when it reveals its second-quarter results. Investors have already been given some hints as to what expect – at the same time as announcing the deal, CSR said revenues for the period would be towards the higher end of the $245m and $265m range it had already given.

Results/Updates: Carpetright, Croda International, CSR, Great Portland, Halma, Imperial Tobacco, International Personal Finance, Kofax, Man Group, Morgan Crucible, Pace, Provident Financial and PZ Cussons.

Wednesday

BT's first-quarter results on Wednesday should be "relatively uneventful", according to Nomura's James Britton. The analyst is expecting the telecommunications giant to announce demand for broadband has remained strong after "another heavily promotions-driven" three months, while he adds that its cost-cutting plans will be in focus.

Another updating the City is easyJet, and noting the budget airline "has had a strong start to summer trading", Investec's scribes are expecting revenues for the third-quarter to total £1.03bn, a 10 per cent year-on-year rise.

Results/Updates: Arm Holdings, Brewin Dolphin, British American Tobacco, British Land, BT Group, Capita, Cookson, DMGT, easyJet, Euromoney, GlaxoSmithKline, Hogg Robinson, Informa, Johnson Matthey, Lancashire, Marston's, Mecom, Petropavlovsk, Promethean World, Quadnetics, Renishaw, Tarsus, Tullow Oil and Yell.

Thursday

It will be a battle of the broadcasters on Thursday as BSkyB and ITV go head-to-head. The former will be unveiling its full-year results which, Nomura's Matthew Walker predicts, will show an increase in the number of net TV customers signed up over the fourth-quarter compared with the previous three months, but a drop in broadband and telephony adds.

ITV's news on the advertising market will be closely examined by the market when the group publishes its interim results, with Numis Securities' Paul Richards pointing out anecdotal "reports indicate that the... summer months have been negatively impacted by the Olympics and macro uncertainty".

Meanwhile, Unilever's second-quarter update is set to show that the Marmite owner suffered a "softer patch" after the year started off well, according to JP Morgan Cazenove.

Results/Updates: Arbuthnot, AstraZeneca, BG Group, BSkyB, Capital Shopping Centres, Centrica, Communisis, Compass, De La Rue, Intertek, Invensys, Investec, ITV, Kazakhmys, Laird, Lloyds Banking Group, Lonmin, moneysupermarket.com, National Express, Nichols, Norcros, PayPoint, QinetiQ, Rathbones, Reed Elsevier, Rolls-Royce, Royal Dutch Shell, SABMiller, Secure Trust Bank, SSE, St James's Place, Synergy Health, Tate & Lyle, Torotrak, Travis Perkins, Unilever and Victrex.

Friday

Coming after rival Lloyds releases its half-year results on Thursday, Barclays will be hoping its numbers for the same period on Friday are an opportunity for the bank to start to move on from the Libor scandal. Oriel Securities said the company "will no doubt be at pains to demonstrate... that it's 'business as usual'", with the broker noting one focus will be any progress on replacing former chief executive Bob Diamond.

Results/Updates: AG Barr, Anglo American, Barclays, Carphone Warehouse, Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Pearson, Spectris, Travis Perkins, UBM, United Utilities and William Hill.
