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.

    • The ECB is expected to raise rates again at its meeting this week, but will it be enough to bolster the euro? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Indices European Central Bank Euro EUR/USD United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What will the ECB do? The European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to raise rates by 50bps at its meeting. What is the background? Like most major central banks, the ECB has been pushed into raising rates in order to combat high levels of inflation. While energy prices have come down, price increases remain above the ECB’s 2% target, and as a result, the bank still views it as necessary to push ahead. No ECB member has dissented from this view of late, leaving markets with little indication that a dovish caucus is forming. Indeed, inflation remains high, but economic data remains resilient. Expectations for a recession, which were widespread as 2022 ended and 2023 began, have been pushed further out, towards the second half of this year and even into 2024, helped by a slump in energy costs that has allayed the worst fears of economists and investors. What is the market impact? If the ECB can send a suitably hawkish message along with the expected 50bps rate hike, then the euro may receive some support against the US dollar. However, euro bulls must be aware that the pair has come a long way since the October lows, and while it only puts a modest dent in the 2022 downtrend, it does mean that the bar for further EUR/USD gains is rather high. This is coupled with negative divergence on the daily MACD indicator, which suggests weakening bullish momentum in the short-term and a general unwillingness to push the rally much further in the near-term. If the ECB is not viewed as being sufficiently hawkish, then EUR/USD may continue to weaken from its eight-month highs, but a move below $1.05 would be the minimum needed to indicate that the sellers have reasserted control. Source: ProRealTime Meanwhile in indices, a weaker euro could give the Dax some fresh impetus, but this would need to be fairly strong to counter worries about a weakening eurozone economy that might ensue. And if the ECB is much more hawkish and provides EUR/USD with a reason to recover then the risk to eurozone stocks is skewed to the downside. Some might argue that, given the huge rally in the Dax this month, some weakness is needed to take the froth out of the index, which may well be pricing in too optimistic a scenario. A drop back towards the 50-day SMA might bring the June and November 2022 highs into view as potential support. This would still leave the uptrend intact. Bulls would welcome further gains in order to cancel out the MACD’s negative divergence that looms large at present. Further upside targets 15,605 and then 15,725. Source: ProRealTime
    • Charting the Markets: 31 January FTSE, DAX and Nasdaq consolidate after latest leg higher. EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall back while USD/JPY rallies, ahead of central bank decisions. And Brent, gold and aluminium prices drop ahead of central bank meetings. Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023           This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD fall back while USD/JPY rallies, as investors await central bank decisions The dollar has recovered to an extent this week, but the uptrends in EUR/USD and GBP/USD, along with the downtrend in USD/JPY, remain intact for now.  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  EUR/USD continues to drop back from recent high A modest pullback continues here with EUR/USD, eating into gains made since the beginning of the year. As markets brace themselves for a double hit of a Federal Reserve (Fed) and European Central Bank (ECB) meeting within a 24-hour period, EUR/USD has fallen back somewhat from the eight-month highs it reached last week. This is the first real weakness since the first week of January, and would leave the uptrend intact unless we see a move back below $1.04. If the price recovers above $1.05 then the bullish view is arguably intact and a bounce back towards $1.09 and higher may well develop. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD stalls at December high Weakness here with GBP/USD has seen the price falter at a similar level to early December, with a possible negative divergence in the daily moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) sending a cautionary signal for bulls. Just as EUR/USD traders have to deal with the Fed and ECB decisions within the same 24-hour period, cable traders must cope with the Bank of England (BoE) decision following hard on the heels of the Fed’s. Much thus depends on that period for the next move in GBP/USD, though it will still arguably take much steeper losses to reverse the broadly bullish outlook. For that to happen we would need to see a drop below the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), followed up by a fall below the 200-day SMA. Having failed to establish a higher high, and with the MACD negative divergence a risk, the uptrend could come under pressure. A reversal above $1.24 would put the buyers back in charge. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY edges up The greenback in USD/JPY has seen a modest recovery off its January lows, as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) dials down any hint of hawkish rhetoric. Nonetheless, the downtrend is still firmly placed. A move back above the 50-day SMA to suggest perhaps some further short-term strength, but the mid-December high around ¥134.00 would act as a barrier. Sellers will be looking for a fresh reversal that puts a move back to the January lows in play, and then sees a move below the May 2022 low around ¥126.50. Source: ProRealTime
