Nick Raynor, investment adviser at The Share Centre, gives his thoughts on what to expect from companies announcing results w/c 4July 2011.


Opg Power Ventures (LON:OPG) (full year results) - We hope this update addresses some of the issues delayed in the previous update. The company has plenty of cash in the bank as it raised £60m earlier in the year. Investors should see the developing Indian market as an opportunity and investing in companies like OPG Power Ventures in the early days could pay off handsomely in the future. We currently list OPG Power Ventures as a BUY


Tullow Oil (LON:TLW) (trading statement) - Tullow Oil has come off the boil as the oil price has come down from its high. The share price was around the heady 1400p mark earlier this year but has since fallen and after placing shares on the Ghanaian market it has fallen further. Despite the political turmoil in Tullow Oil's main geographical regions, the company has a knack of making things right. We hope this trading update soothes any concerns investors have and reports a big find is close at hand. We currently list Tullow Oil as a BUY

Axis-shield (LON:ASD) (trading statement) - In May Axis-Shield noted that trading was in-line with expectations. We expect no different from this update so we see no reason why we would change our stance. This is a good long-term attraction for the patient investor. We currently list Axis-Shield as a BUY


3i (LON:III) (interim management statement) - It's been a busy quarter for 3i.

Booker (LON:BOK) (interim management statement) - Preliminary results in May noted that profits for the next year had risen by 25%. Although we are not expecting gains along those lines in this Q1 update, we do expect to see positive…
