Monday 18 August

Clarkson PLC – second quarter results

Tuesday 19 August

BHP Billiton – fourth quarter results

Asset write-downs remain a possibility for BHP Billiton and management are likely to staycautious where large-scale investment projects are concerned, but overall the company is expected to improve its numbers slightly this quarter, particularly following a relatively positive production update and rising production levels for some key commodities.

CRH – second quarter results

Imperial Tobacco – interim management statement

Imperial Tobacco recently acquired brands from US tobacco group Reynolds American, and investors will be excited to hear what management has planned for them. Falling sales and volumes is also an issue, so any progress on the company’s ‘optimisation programme’ will be welcome. A response to the Food and Drug Administration’s proposal to oversee cigars and e-cigarettes in the US for the first time will also be of interest.

Persimmon – second quarter results

Wednesday 20 August

Carillion – second quarter results

Glencore – second quarter results

Thursday 21 August

Quindell – second quarter results

Friday 22 August

AGA Rangemaster – second quarter results

Investors will be hoping that AGA’s recovery in sales – thanks largely to the strong UK housing market and improving global economic environment – has continued. New ventures in China and the targeting of urban markets should provide additional sales channels, so investors will be looking for improving numbers and management commentary on how new stores are performing.
