Markets remain tense in anticipation of a series of key announcements this week. The big one is the FOMC meeting, which starts today and concludes tomorrow with its interest rate decision at 18:00hrs. With Fed futures suggest a 95% chance of a 25bp hike most think it is already in the bag, suggesting there would be something of a shock reaction if Janet Yellen fails to deliver. More realistically perhaps, the Fed Chair could send a shiver down the markets spine by signalling either the need for more aggressive policy or the possible need for more than the 3 moves she has already guided for 2017. The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note edged higher last night to 2.591%, according to Tradeweb, from 2.582% Friday. Beyond this, the flood of news continues with The Bank of Japan, Bank of England and the Swiss National Bank are all set to hold meetings this week, while Dutch voters head to the polls tomorrow, with the outcome expected to be declared early Thursday. This, of course, is the first of a series of key votes in the Eurozone this year and investors will be watching to see how well Geert Wilders' anti-establishment, Party for Freedom, performs to determine the Dutch political landscape and reassess populist and anti-euro candidate Marine Le Pen's chances of winning the French presidency in the first round on 23rd April. While En Marche's Emmanuel Macron is seen accompanying the National Front's leader to the second round on 7th May, opinion polls consistently give him a 20%+ lead in such a run-off, an outcome that would likely significantly narrow the currently wide 10-year OAT-Bund spread. just as Parliament clears the way for Brexit, Scotland's chief minister Nicola Stugeon has called for another Referendum on leaving the U.K. due, apparently, to concerns about leaving the EU single market; traders suggest, however, her move had been widely anticipated and, given the event is still seen some 18 months away, so far has failed to hurt Sterling. More immediately, however, a dovish tone from the Bank of England on Thursday, would likely set it sliding downward. With all eyes on the Fed, US equities drifted featureless in a tight range, ending mixed with just fractional mixed moves amongst the principal indices. Asian equities ended similarly, although most closed marginally in the red, with Japan's Toshiba the principal feature with its shares tumbling upon announcing a further delay in releasing its earnings report; the Shanghai Composite trod water despite Chinese value-added industrial output, a proxy for economic growth, expanding to 6.3% in the first two months of 2017, exceeding expectations. No significant UK macro data is due today, although the EU provides Industrial Production data and its ZEW Survey, while the US is scheduled to release Producer Prices and its Redbook. UK corporates due to release earnings or trading updates include Prudential (PRU.L), Antofagasta (ANTO.L), TP ICAP (TCAP.L), French Connection (FCCN.L), SIG (SHI.L) and Ocado (OCDO.L). Equities in London are expected to trade lightly at the opening, with the FTSE-100 seen rising 5 to 10 points in early business.

"With polls narrowing enough to suggest that Clinton’s lead over Trump ahead of the November 8th presidential election is now just 3 points, traders have finally started to ask the unanswerable - which will be the winners and losers? Quite a quandary. Market anticipation of the Republican candidate winning would be a severe heightening of the market’s greatest phobia, uncertainty and rising risk aversion. The first signs of this were evident overnight, not helped by FOMC conflict seemingly projecting stalemate at the Fed, as the US$ fell and bonds gained. This, in fact, follows the established historical pattern of the currency reacting more favourably to a Democrat in the White House. US equities that started their session strongly, gave nearly everything back by the close with only the tech-heavy NASDAQ registering a reasonable gain while energy stocks continued to weaken following continued US inventory build, the IEA report that foresaw the current supply glut continuing into 2017 and whose argument is being boosted by news of planned export resumption from both Libya and Nigeria. Asia was similarly mixed with the Nikkei the principal casualty on the back of stronger Yen due to forex traders switching US$ positions, while China was closed and gently selling of commodity stocks weakened the ASX. A number of market sensitive macro releases are due today, including the Eurozone inflation report and retail sales data from both the UK and the US. UK corporates due to report earnings include Morrisons (MRW.L), Next (NXT.L), Ophir Energy (OPHR.L), Tribal Group (TRB.L) and a Q2’16 update from Booker Group (BOK.L). Later in the UK trading session, the Bank of England is also due to disclose its rate interest decision; having told the markets last week that “we are very much not out of ammunition, nor are we trigger happy” Governor Mark Carney effectively added to traders’ growing doubts regarding the effectiveness of prospective central bank policy against a global backdrop of weakening growth. No change in the UK base rate is expected today. The FTSE-100 is seen down some 20 points in early morning trade. " - Barry Gibb, Research Analyst

accesso Technology (ACSO LN) Full year results in line, but key trading months still ahead | Augean (AUG LN) Double digit growth in ’16, good start to ‘17 | Earthport (EPO LN) Interims show continued top line strength | Goals Soccer Centres (GOAL LN) Good momentum under new team. It’s now all about delivery | IQE (IQE LN) FY’16 results prompt further upgrades | Microsaic Systems (MSYS LN) Challenges in 2016, strategy remains in place | mporium Group (MPM LN) Funds raised to help execute strategy | RhythmOne (RTHM LN) Dawn of the independents | ScS Group (SCS LN) Strong progress on key growth initiatives albeit comps now toughen | Sinclair Pharma (SPH LN) FY results: EBITDA ahead, Instalift™ gaining pace | Vectura Group (VEC LN) FY (9-month) results
N+1 Singer - ScS Group - Strong progress on key growth initiatives albeit comps now toughen

Whilst interim results are complicated by timing differences around order deliveries (flattery of c£1.9m) and rephasing of marketing (drag of c£1.9m), adjusted EBITDA improved by c£1.7m on an underlying basis – moving ScS into positive territory in its historically loss-making first half. Good progress was made on all 4 growth strategies and it maintained its 5-star score on Trustpilot. Whilst LFL order intake is down c5-6% in current trading, this reflects weak retail park footfall in Feb (not a conversion issue) and it has seen an improvement since the start of March. This means it is on track to meet FY expectations. Reassuring dynamics on margins & costs may add to investor relief, with the shares on <2x EV/EBITDA.
N+1 Singer - Goals Soccer Centres - Good momentum under new team. It’s now all about delivery

2016 finals have come in marginally below consensus PBT forecasts but this should not detract from positive operational and strategic momentum. There is still much work to do, but the tenor of the results is encouraging and management signals a good start to FY17. The main surprise is news of a third USA site opening. We tweak our FY17/18 PBT forecast up by 2% and stay at Buy on recovery grounds with a 140p 12m TP.
Interim results confirm solid peak Pier trading
21 Mar 17
1H results demonstrate positive progress in both divisions, with a solid first peak trading contribution from the Pier and rationalisation/stabilisation of the Bars business. Trading is expected to remain in-line with market expectations, with management reiterating ambitions for further strategic acquisitions of experiential leisure sites. Our underlying forecasts are substantially unchanged, save for a one-off lower tax rate boosting FY17 EPS. BUY, 150p target price.
Strong set of full-year results, comforting guidance
23 Mar 17
GVC released a solid set of full-year results. Key highlights Pro forma Net Gaming Revenue (NGR) was up 12% at constant currency, or 9% on a reported basis at €895m, in line with the February trading update. Pro forma clean EBITDA was up 26%, at €205.7m, bang in line with AV’s €206m forecasts, translating a three percentage points increase in margin added to the growth in revenue. c.69% of NGR was derived from markets either regulated (including those in the process of regulating) and/or locally taxed (68% in 2015), while 95% of the revenues were derived from GVC’s proprietary platform. Net debt stood at €131.5m or 0.6x clean EBITDA. The board proposed a second special dividend of €0.15, giving a total dividend of €0.30 per share for the year, beating market expectations. Guidance The start of 2017 seems promising as management said that daily NGR had increased by 15% (+16% cc), translating into an 18% (+19% cc) growth in sports labels’ daily NGR and a 6% (+8% cc) increase in games labels’ daily NGR. The gross win margin reached 9.5% while it should move towards the 10% mark on the long term. Regarding dividends, the group confirmed a progressive distribution policy and expects to distribute at least 50% of the group’s free cash flow, starting from 2017. Debt refinancing In the first quarter of 2017, the group issued a €320m Senior Secured Term and Revolving Facility, composed of a €250m term loan (maturity 6 years) and a €70m revolving credit facility (maturity 5 years) used to pay down the Nomura Loan in full.
