Results round-up: Companies to watch this week

Tuesday 18 November

AMEC – interim management statement

The substantial drop in the price of oil is more than likely to impact contract awards for AMEC and even spark some cancellations. But AMEC is a diversified company, working in other areas; Investors will certainly be happy that clean energy and the Middle East were doing well as of the last interim trading update.

British Land – second quarter results

Investors will be keen to hear about the level of sales, footfall and occupancy as British Land focuses on retail and office property. With a concentration of office properties in the capital, where demand is strong, British Land should have some thoughts on the market there. Any news about how the company will use the £1.5bn in debt finance raised earlier this year will also be welcome.

easyJet – fourth quarter results

easyJet raised its full year profit guidance in early October, so the markets will be hoping to see where the final figures will land, particularly since fuel costs have fallen and revenue per seat has spiked. Southern and Central European markets will be of interest, as will any comments on the recent news that a higher proportion of earnings are to be paid out in dividends. 

Intertek – interim management statement

Prudential – third quarter results

Serco – interim management statement

Wednesday 19 November

Chesnara – interim management statement

Chesnara investors will want proof that the firm can continue to deliver healthy cash generation and operational performance even as market conditions weigh heavily. Any progress on the acquisition of Direct Line’s closed life business and other possible acquisitions will be of interest, as will the progress of cost cutting measures.

ICAP -second quarter results

Royal Mail – second quarter results

Royal Mail’s share price has underperformed quite substantially this year as competition in the parcel delivery sector heats up, so investors will be looking to margins and cost cutting measures. Any updates on Royal Mail’s property assets and its request from the regulator concerning letter delivery will also be of interest.

Thursday 20 November

Babcock International – second quarter results

Centrica – second quarter results

Any signs of improvement after a disappointing year will be important to Centrica investors, as will updates on the US market and any comments on cost cutting. The company’s 2015 earnings outlook will be another area of focus given that mild weather is expected to negatively impact demand.

Johnson Matthey – second quarter results
