Friday preview: Rentokil Initial, Tullett Prebon

For a relatively small part of the business, Rentokil Initial's often troublesome courier service, City Link, does seem to soak up a disproportionate amount of attention, and that may be the case again on Friday when the group makes a trading update.

The good news for shareholders, however, is that management seems to be getting a grip on the situation at last.

Inter-dealer broker Tullett Prebon's interim management statement may be a downbeat affair, as the first half of the financial year saw a fall off in revenue. The silver lining was a statement about signs of a bit of a pick-up towards the end of the reporting period, so the focus will be on whether that trend continued into the third quarter.
