Resurgent electricals retailer Dixons will look to maintain its run of form next week, alongside updates from Hargreaves Lansdown and Go-Ahead.
PC World and Currys owner Dixons Retail is set to deliver another solid update on Thursday following a resurgent full-year performance that saw it switch from "survivor to winner".
The group delivered a 15% hike in underlying profits for the year to April 30 as it benefited from the collapse of competitors such as Comet and an improvement in its own customer service standards.
Its prospects amid the UK housing market revival will also be in sharp focus as experts predict its sales of white goods will be boosted by a buoyant property sector.
Dixons, which has electrical retail operations across Europe, has been benefiting from a strong performance in the UK and Ireland, where annual profits jumped 39% to £113.3 million.
This helped offset further big losses in southern Europe and its PIXmania division, with u nderlying group profits up by £12.4 million to £94.5 million.
Chief executive Sebastian James said the annual results marked an "important milestone in our transition from survivor to winner''.
Matthew Taylor, analyst at Numis Securities, is predicting UK first quarter like-for-like sales to have risen by at least 5%, although he said "hot weather is rarely helpful for electrical sales".
Dixons shares were a star performer of 2012 and have gained around 160% in the last year.
The group has staged an impressive comeback in the past two years after it was hit by a slump in UK and Ireland profits and hefty writedowns in Europe.
Liz Faulkner, retail consultant at Conlumino, heaped praise on Dixons' self-help measures following its full-year results in June.
She said: " Improved in-store experience, with engaging displays and a particular focus on service, is re-establishing Dixons' position as the specialist.''
Pubs group Greene King is expected to reveal strong summer trading on Tuesday after demand for lager and cider soared amid the heatwave.
The firm, which has a retail estate of nearly 1,000 managed pubs across the UK, is predicted to report a pick up in sales growth thanks to the hot summer weather.
It posted a 3.3% rise in like-for-like sales in the initial eight weeks of the new financial year and analysts are pencilling in growth of more than 5% over the first quarter.
Douglas Jack at Numis Securities said: "We expect trading to be strong and ahead of our assumptions."
But while Greene King's pub chain will have benefited, its brewing business may not have seen any significant pick-up.
Mr Jack added: "We do not expect any improvement in beer volumes as good weather tends to favour lager and cider, rather than real ale."
Greene King's beer brands include Old Speckled Hen and Abbot Ale, while the business also owns the Hungry Horse chain and Loch Fyne seafood restaurants.
It beat City forecasts with annual results for the year to April, with underlying pre-tax profits up 6.6% to £162 million as its focus on food sales continued to pay off.
But profits in the brewing business were 9.1% lower at £30 million due to supplier cost increases, declining volumes in the tenanted pub industry and a reduction in the number of Pub Partners' sites.
The company has plans for 1,100 retail sites by 2015, although it continues to shrink its Pub Partners business, which features an estate of more than 1,200 leasehold pubs.
Financial services firm Hargreaves Lansdown is set to notch up yet more records when it posts half-year figures on Wednesday.
The Bristol-based company, which offers financial advice and serves retail investors through its Vantage fund supermarket, is expected to report half-year profits at an all time high thanks to surging growth in assets under administration.
James Hamilton, analyst at Numis Securities, is pencilling in a 26% hike in profits to a record £193.1 million, driven by a 37% rise in assets under administration.
Hargreaves has been benefiting from more clients switching to the group since the Retail Distribution Review (RDR) took effect on January 1, which included changes such as banning independent financial advisers (IFAs) from being able to take commission as payment.
The group's self-directed investing proposition has been boosted as a result of RDR, with Hargreaves recording its highest level of quarterly net inflows in the three months to March 31.
But the second phase of RDR stopping all commission payments to fund managers and platforms will mean Hargreaves has to completely overhaul its direct fee structure as a result.
The group is expected to announce the details at some stage in September, giving its customers at least six months to get used to the changes before the regulatory deadline set for April 2014.
Barclays experts are predicting a sliding scale platform account fee, with possible additional transaction charges for services, such as fund transfers.
Analysts at HSBC said it would be a "difficult next couple of years" for Hargreaves as it grapples with the post-RDR business model changes.
It is also coming up against increased competition as RDR has sparked a price war in the platform market, they added.
Payday lender Wonga will court controversy again when it publishes annual results on Tuesday amid an ongoing competition investigation of the market after "deep-rooted" problems were uncovered.
The Newcastle United sponsor, which offers short-term loans of up to £1,000, has rarely been out of the spotlight this year as the £2 billion industry has come under fire over exorbitant interest rates and lending practices.
It has even gone head to head with the Archbishop of Canterbury after the Most Rev Justin Welby told Wonga the Church of England wants to ''compete'' it out of existence as part of plans to expand credit unions.
The Competition Commission is conducting a probe of the sector after the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) revealed that features of the market had the potential to ''prevent, restrict or distort competition''.
It raised fears that vulnerable consumers who cannot afford to pay their loans back on time were finding themselves trapped with one firm when their loans are rolled over.
It is also worried that firms are emphasising the speed of the loan over cost and that the pressure to hand loans out quickly may encourage lenders to ''skimp'' on affordability checks.
Wonga is one of three payday firms that dominate the sector, alongside Cash America - which owns Pounds to Pocket and QuickQuid - and Dollar Financial Corp - which is behind The Money Shop and PaydayUK.
Between them they have around a 70% share of the market by turnover, according to the OFT.
The OFT also estimated that in 2011/12 payday lenders' turnover across the industry was £860 million.
Wonga maintains it is a "pioneer of better regulation'' in the sector and has welcomed the competition inquiry.
Payday lenders will also come under the scope of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) from next April, and its powers would enable it to ban advertising, place a possible cap on interest rates and limit or bar the number of rollovers that lenders can offer, if it sees fit.
The group's 2012 financial results will be of particular interest, given scrutiny of the sector.
It revealed that net profits more than tripled to £45.8 million in 2011 and that the number of loans the company made almost quadrupled to 2.5 million, meaning Wonga had provided more than six million loans since its launch in 2007.
Transport group Go-Ahead expects to rev up earnings from its bus division when it announces full-year results on Thursday.
The operator is aiming to increase operating profits from its buses from £70 million to £100 million by 2015/16 at a time when its rail business is plagued by uncertainty and higher-than-expected costs.
Go-Ahead operates 4,600 buses, carrying nearly two million passengers every day, focusing on busy commuter markets including London, the South and South East as well as Oxford, East Anglia and North East England.
In a trading update earlier this year it said revenues from the division were expected to be up 4% outside London and by 6.5% in the capital on an underlying basis, leaving it on track to deliver a better-than-expected result.
However some analysts fear it could in future be hit by proposals to introduce London-style local authority controls over bus services in the Tyne and Wear area.
The group is also behind nearly a third of the UK's passenger rail journeys through its Govia joint venture, which runs the Southeastern, London Midland and Southern franchises - the latter including the Gatwick Express.
These services are also set to see higher revenues, but higher costs look likely to hit earnings while the postponement of rail franchise competitions has added uncertainty.
The group, which employs 23,000 people, said full-year results were likely to be in line with expectations. Analysts expect operating profits to be down 8.5% at £100.8 million, on revenues up 4.4% to £2.53 billion.
Chief executive David Brown said in June that both bus and rail divisions had seen passenger number growth improve after freezing weather impacted performance earlier in 2013.
