US earnings season


Recommended Posts

5 things to know before the stock market opens Tuesday, June 21

US earnings season starts officially this week and, as ever, the banking sector gets the ball rolling.

JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley will publish their quarterly report on Thursday, and Citigroup , Wells Fargo, BNY Mellon on Friday.

Bank of America and Goldman Sachs then pick up the baton on Monday next week.

Outside the banking sector, PepsiCo will report on Tuesday 12th. Later this week the market expects publications from Delta Air Lines, ConAgra Brands and UnitedHealth .

Earnings in the US are expected to rise 4.1%, which would be the lowest rate of growth since the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2020. Revenues are expected to rise 10.1% compared to a year earlier. As for negative guidance, they should be on the rise. With soaring inflation and the pressure it puts on profit margins, bleak expectations about economic growth and consumer spending, 71 firms are expected to announce negative earnings guidance.

Twitter will gather a lot of attention today. On Friday, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, said he planned to walk away from his deal to buy the social media platform, arguing that it had failed to provide enough information to prove that the number of fake and spam accounts on its platform stands at less than 5%, as it has long estimated.

Over the weekend, Twitter announced it had hired law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz as it prepares for a legal battle either to force Musk to proceed with the $44 billion deal or pay the $1bln break fee.

Bank Stock Earnings Preview: What to Expect?

BY:RYAN SULLIVAN | Tastytrade

Market Outlook Through the First Half of 2022

The S&P 500 E-mini is currently trading at $3,914, remaining under $4,000 since June 12th, 2022. Since mid-June the S&P 500 has shown us constructive price action. Based on recent price action, it is likely that the S&P 500 will move toward testing the $4,000 price level by the end of July.

Taking a broader view, the S&P 500 is currently down 17.97% from its opening price of 2022. At this point in 2022, with economic growth hurdles, supply chain constraints, rate hikes, and global conflicts known, it is becoming more likely that that market is currently trading at a price that has factored in most of the elements that have created the current bear market.

Benefits of Trading Bank Stocks Going Into Earnings

Placing trades right before earnings reports gives us the opportunity to sell increased volatility going into an event that contains uncertainty. Ideally, for these events, earnings are reported, they match the consensus estimates, and the stock does not make a large move, remaining where the market has already priced the stock. Then, volatility diminishes, allowing us to buy our position back for a profit in a short period of time.

The upside to using this strategy for the banking sector is that bank stocks are often among the easiest to estimate earnings. Due to the nature of banking and the regulatory requirements that surround the banking industry, analysts often have access to much of the information that will affect earnings reports prior to the actual report. This allows for more accurate projections and accurate estimates per share. We can use this to our advantage.

However, it is always important to remember that earnings reports can come in as you expected them to, and the resulting price action can move exactly opposite to what you were looking for. It is common for larger market participants to exit large positions on positive earnings reports. Defining your risk going into earnings can alleviate some uncertainty.

    • It was a blockbuster number yesterday for the ADP private payrolls, showing 278,000 jobs opened in May, while forecasts had been for 170,000.  Jeremy Naylor | Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 02 June 2023 IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor suggests a similar upside surprise could see almost 300,000 jobs created under the non-farm payroll count with estimates for 190,000 job creations. The unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. (Video Transcript) NPFs: what to expect Could yesterday's strong private payrolls number from the ADP reading give us an insight into the potential upside risk to today's non-farm payrolls? That report from ADP yesterday showed 278,000 jobs opened in May - forecasts had been for 170,000. Now the NFP expectations, 190,000 job creations are forecast for the month of May proportionately using that ADP surprise. That would mean an upside reading for NFPs close to 300,000. Why the increase? Now, the unemployment rate is seen rising one notch to 3.5%. Why is that rising? When you've got that rise in the number of job creations, the unemployment rate is not taking the same data that the jobs numbers themselves are being produced from average hourly earnings. We're looking there for that to go up 0.3% month-on-month, 4.4% year-on-year, still below the rate of inflation. Now, this chart shows the unemployment rate back to pre-Covid-19 levels. It's clear that jobs have been created at an appreciable rate and this alongside a relatively strong GDP number and inflation coming down, there may yet be a soft landing for the US economy. But if the Federal Reserve (Fed) does continue to raise rates, things may get a little bit more sticky for the economy and a little bit more difficult to predict. This is a comparison of fed funds rates and US consumer price inflation (CPI) since January 2021. So you can see here the rate at which the US central bank has been piling the pressure on the monetary markets with that rise to five and a quarter percent. And at the same time, the CPI number is coming down, which is a good thing, but it's still not down to the 2% level, 4.9% is a long way away still from the 2% target. So the Fed is entitled still to have an excuse to raise interest rates. US dollar basket Let's take a look at what's been happening with the US dollar basket. Yesterday, we saw a pullback coming through as we saw money going into risk assets because of that rubber stamping from the Senate or the vote in the Senate to approve the budget that's now gone for the presidential seal. EUR/USD And we've seen a second day in a row of losses or the euro for the dollar basket as far as the euro/dollar is concerned, bouncing away from that 76.4% retracement. And I think now, you will have been stopped out if you were short on this, you would have been stopped out on this and hopefully you would have got some profits on the way down. So that's where things are ahead of non-farm payrolls out today at 13:30 UK time. And we will be live on the IG platform at 13:25 today.
