These three UK shares are set to furnish the market with trading updates in the days and weeks ahead. Should you buy them ahead of these fresh statements? Here I take a look.
It’s unsurprising that multinational recruitment specialist Robert Walters has seen its share price collapse in 2020. Since trading started on New Year’s Day its stock has lost a jaw-dropping 32% of its value as the global economy has suffered a Covid-19 shock.
I worry, too, that this most cyclical of shares could be in for a significant period of bottom line pressure. And that third-quarter financials slated for this week (Thursday, 8 October) could exacerbate market fears and prompt a fresh share price slump. Robert Walters certainly spooked in July when it declared that revenues tanked 22% in the first six months of 2020.
