Graham Spooner, Investment Research Analyst at The Share Centre, gives his thoughts on what to expect from companies announcing results week commencing 27 August 2018.

Tuesday

Bunzl (Q2 earnings release)

Trading was reported to be in line with expectations in June, so the market will not be expecting any major surprises from the group. Bunzl's approach of making acquisitions to boost revenue and profit continues to work well. Any comment regarding its plastic products in light of recent environmental concerns will be worth noting.

We currently list Bunzl as a BUY

Wednesday

James Fisher & Sons (Q2 earnings release)

Market focus will probably be on its Offshore Oil division, where in May the group reported signs of recovery. A specialist maritime service provider, with operations around the globe, the range of its services has been expanding as a result of acquisitions. The share price hit an all-time high in July.

We currently list James Fisher & Sons as a BUY

Thursday

Chesnara (Q2 earnings release)

The business has made a few significant acquisitions lately and investors will be keen on finding out of the integration progress that management have made with these. Investors will expect good solvency ratios and cash flows along with a solid dividend which is one of the key reasons for investing into this stock.

We currently list Chesnara as a BUY

Friday

The Restaurant Group (Q2 earnings release)

Management have focused on the competitiveness of its brands, an improved customer experience, growing the Pubs and Concessions business, cutting costs and creating a leaner and more focused organisation. Investors will be focussing on costs and the effect of the World Cup and extreme weather.

We currently list The Restaurant Group as a BUY
