UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Jan 19

Jan 19 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening lower with futures FFIc1 down 0.61% on Wednesday.

* JD WETHERSPOON: British pub group JDW.L warned it would record a loss for the first half of the fiscal year after the Omicron coronavirus variant led to renewed curbs and kept people from heading out during the holidays.

* CENTAMIN: Centamin CEY.L reported a 58% jump in gold production for the fourth quarter as the Egypt-focused miner benefited from higher-grade ores.

* ANTOFAGASTA: Antofagasta ANTO.L forecast annual copper production below 2021 levels, as operations continue to be impacted by Chile's driest weather in years.

* WH SMITH: WH Smith SMWH.L said it expected a resumption in the recovery of its travel markets over the coming months, although the retailer added that the firm is experiencing a "small impact" from the Omicron coronavirus variant.

* PEARSON: Pearson PSON.L raised its forecast for full-year adjusted operating profit in a boost to a management team that is restructuring the company and trying to stem problems at its U.S. Higher Education division.

* BURBERRY: Burberry BRBY.L said its profit would beat market expectations as its full-price sales accelerated in the third quarter.

* FCA: Britain's financial watchdog said it plans to introduce restrictions on marketing cryptoassets and other high-risk investments.

* INFLATION: British consumer price inflation rose more than expected to 5.4% in December, its highest in almost 30 years, official data showed.

* GOLD: Gold prices fell towards previous session's one-week low as the prospect of aggressive rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve sent benchmark Treasury yields to two-year highs, reducing the appeal of non-yielding bullion.

* London's FTSE 100 ended lower on Tuesday weighed down by shares of consumer companies and industrial stocks, while improving employment conditions in the UK and rising U.S. Treasury yields signalled growing bets of tighter monetary policies.
