Next week brings news from the property business, and updates from the support sector.
We have a bit of a lull in company news this week -- though later in July we will have the mid-year interims starting to come in.
The specialist recruitment firm Hydrogen Group (LSE: HYDG) will deliver half-time results on Monday. After a strong 2011, there are good things forecast for this year -- a 22% rise in earnings per share (eps), with a 5% dividend yield expected. Forecasts for 2013 are similarly upbeat.
On Tuesday we'll have full-year results from Anite (LSE: AIE), which develops software for handset makers, network developers and the travel industry. A trading update in May suggested earnings would be at the top end of estimates.
Tuesday will also being us interim figures from St Modwen Properties (LSE: SMP), the property regeneration specialist, and a trading update from housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN), so we should get some news on how the property sector is going.

The same day, we'll also have full-year results from The Real Good Food Company (LSE: RGD) and an update from N Brown Group (LSE: BWNG).
On Wednesday we will get full-year results from CSF Group (LSE: CSFG), which provides data centre facilities in SE Asia. The share price has slid over the past year, but there's a 4.4% dividend yield being forecast.
International Greetings (LSE: IGR) will bring us its full-year results the same day, and we are also expecting a trading announcement from Tullow Oil (LSE: TLW), and a half-year management statement from support and construction services firm Carillion (LSE: CLLN).
Business consultancy Begbies Traynor Group (LSE: BEG) will release full-year figures on Thursday, and though the City is expecting a 6% fall in eps, there's a dividend yield of nearly 8% forecast. We'll need to see if it happens, and if it is sufficiently well covered.
IT security specialist NCC Group (LSE: NCC) will also release full-year results the same day, and a decent year is expected from a company whose share price has appreciated nicely.
Other news on Thursday will include a Q4 trading update from soft furnishings supplier Dunelm Group (LSE: DNLM), and a Q2 update from recruitment firm Robert Walters (LSE: RWA).
Friday should be relatively quiet, with just a second quarter update from Sandvine (LSE: SAND), the mobile networks specialist.
