Corporate reporting season gets underway

7:18 am on 9 February 2015

The corporate reporting season gets underway this week.

A number of small listed companies are expected to report strong earnings results over the next few weeks, with Forsyth Barr picking particularly robust performances from the newly listed, Evolve Education; the investment concern, Hellaby Holdings, and Refining New Zealand.

Head of wealth research at Craigs Investment Partners Mark Lister said some sectors would deliver better results than others, while the changes in the New Zealand dollar would deliver mixed results for companies with overseas exposure, particularly in the United States and Australia.
