This is a big week for the retail sector as Sports Direct and Next prepare to update their investors.

Monday 8 September

AB Foods – fourth quarter sales

Tuesday 9 September

Fenner – fourth quarter sales

Wednesday 10 September

Kingfisher – interim results, second quarter

Kingfisher’s July trading update was disappointing, so investors will be eager to hear how the group is doing, particularly considering the impact of geopolitical issues on European trading and economic slowdown in China. With these headwinds in mind the group may provide a further update on any strategy to improve margins and reduce costs.

Sports Direct – interim results, first quarter

Barratt Developments – full year results

London Stock Exchange – second quarter results

Thursday 11 September

Ashmore -full year results

Investors will be looking for another increase in funds under management for this emerging market-focused investment house, hopefully as a result of net inflows. Any comments on the outlook for emerging markets will be of interest, particularly as Ashmore has had to cut fees and investors have seen margins tighten as a result.

Morrisons – interim results

Next – half year results

Friday 12 September

J D Wetherspoon – preliminary results
