Daily Telegraph: The week ahead

A guide to company results and meetings, and economic statistics
Royal Dutch Shell is expected to unveil record profits for a British company fuelled by a steep increase in oil prices over the past year.
The oil giant's fourth quarter results on Thursday are expected to push the company's annual earnings up to a record $23billion (£13billion).
Also this week, US oil giant Exxon Mobil is expected to post the world's biggest-ever profit of about $32billion and BP is expected to continue the trend with profits of around $22billion reported on February 7.
At Shell, analysts' consensus forecast for current cost of supplies earnings, the standard measure used in the oil industry, is $5.5billion for the three months to December.
For the nine months to September Shell earned $17.5billion compared to $12.4billion earned in the same period a year earlier.
The earnings would be the highest ever reported by a UK-listed company, beating the record $17.6billion posted by Shell a year ago.
