We have news from the housebuilding and fashion sectors coming next week.
Later in the month there'll be mid-year interims starting to come in, but to keep us going until then we have various updates from some important sectors...
We had an update from housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) last week, and it was pretty good, even if the share price did fall on the day. In fact, we took it as an opportunity to add to our Beginners' Portfolio.
And next week, we should have more updates from the sector, starting with a trading update from Bovis Homes Group (LSE: BVS), whose interim update in May was strong.
That will be followed on Wednesday by trading updates from Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV), and Galliford Try (GFRD), so we should get a clearer picture of what the housing and construction sector looks like.
We're also expecting to hear from the clothing business next week, with a first-quarter update expected from Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS), which is still in the process of transformation, on Tuesday.
On the same day we'll have an update from online fashion retailer ASOS (LSE: ASC), whose share price has climbed a mountain, and then descended partway, over the past few years.
And then on Wednesday, it's time for a first-quarter update from the purveyor of fashionable tartan, Burberry Group (BRBY). It's been quite a success story in the past three years, but will a slowdown in China, where many of the world's new fashionistas are to be found, hurt its prospects?
If neither of these two sectors sets you alight, Motley Fool analysts have been scratching their heads over the best sectors to invest in, and have come up with their "Top Sectors Of 2012" report -- you can get it delivered free to your inbox.
We do actually have a few results coming, too, with full-year results from real-estate investment trust Picton Property Income (LSE: PCTN) on Wednesday, which should shed some more light on the property sector.
Interim results from RM (LSE: RM), the specialist in computer technology for education, are due on Monday.
And the rest...
Other things to watch out for during the week include a pre-close statement from JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW) and a quarterly trading update from Hays (LSE: HAS) on Wednesday, with a Q3 update from Associated British Foods (LSE: ABF) and a trading and operational update from Premier Oil (LSE: PMO) following on Thursday.
