Rolls-Royce (full-year earnings 7 March)
Rolls-Royce finds itself in the middle of a restructuring programme, which will dominate these figures. Further simplification is likely from the CEO, Warren East, in order to boost transparency. In addition, we look for comments on its commercial marine business, which had been potentially up for sale. The firm confirmed back in January that it was still on track to hit forecasts.
Rolls-Royce has fallen back from the highs of 2017, but for now it has found support at the rising trendline from the 2016 lows. A recovery here brings £8.75 and £9.26 into view. A further drop could find support at £7.92 and then £7.38.
