Thursday 29 May

Kingfisher – Q1 Results

The home improvement retailer is expected to grow its dividend by five per cent this year, predicated on moderate sales growth and a slightly higher profit margin. Investors should pay attention to trading performance, outlook comments and any update on a proposed acquisition of French DIY chain Mr Bricolage.

Severn Trent – Full-Year Results

The share price of this water company indicates that its investors are fairly optimistic; in February the company confirmed full year earnings expectations, while market expectations are for dividend growth of six per cent. Look out for operational performance, preparations to submit a business plan to the regulator for 2015-20 and the outlook for the company’s smaller non-regulated services business.

Tate & Lyle – Full-Year Results

In April the company, which provides ingredients to the food and beverage industries, reaffirmed that profit before tax was expected to be broadly in line with the year prior. Market expectations are for dividend growth of around three per cent. Attention will focus on competition in the artificial sweetener market and demand for corn sweeteners. A profit warning was issued in February but investors seem to have taken comfort from April’s update.
