Money Minute Monday 18 November: a busy week for company news

In today's Money Minute, we look ahead to a quiet week for economic data, but a busy one for company news.

It's a quiet week for UK economic data but a busy one for UK company news.

On Tuesday, we get full-year results from budget airline easyJet, pubs group Enterprise Inns, and half-year results from storage group Big Yellow and fire safety specialists Halma.

On Wednesday, there are trading updates from DIY group Kingfisher, full-year results from another pubs group, Mitchells & Butlers, and half-year figures from United Utilities.

Other companies reporting next week include bookmaker William Hill and British Gas owner Centrica.

Meanwhile, over in the eurozone, we get the latest reading on European consumer confidence for November.Generally economic data has been a little bit better than expected so far this month, with Germany in particular narrowly avoiding recession primarily due to strong consumer spending.Confidence is seen as likely to have picked up a little this month, although not sufficiently to reverse last month's fall.
