Investors look to an encouraging update from Aggreko on Friday as it releases its interim management statement.

The temporary power and temperature control firm has been bolstered by contract wins and strong performance of its North American division in recent months.

Last month, the group announced it secured contracts to supply 122 megawatts (MW) of gas-fuelled power to utilities in Mozambique and Namibia from the largest cross-border interim power plant in the world.

It signed tri-party power purchase agreements with Electricidade de Moambique and NamPower to provide them with power from its plant located in Gigawatt Park at Ressano Garcia, Mozambique.

"A 122MW contract win to the Southern African power pool is testament to the success of the existing contracts in place," analysts at Jefferies International said at the time.

JP Morgan Chase will also hog headlines on Friday with its first quarter earnings announcement.

The consensus analyst estimate has gone from $1.35 per share to the current projection of earnings of $1.38 per share, Zacks analysts said.

The estimate is up 5.3% from a year ago, when JP Morgan reported earnings of $1.31 per share.

Revenue is forecast to decrease 12.8% year-over-year to $25.94bn for the quarter.

JP Morgan will share the lime light with Wells Fargo, which also unveils its first quarter results.

Zacks predicts earnings of $0.87 a share, up from $0.75 a year earlier. Revenue is expected to fall 6.1% year-over-year to $21.6bn for the quarter.

The company has seen profits increase in each of the past three quarters.
