As equity markets sink lower still, Lee Wild highlights the big names publishing potentially market-moving results over the next week.

The technology sector remains firmly in focus following a week that included the largest daily decline on Wall Street since 2011, wiping out gains for the year in both the S&P 500 Index and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
