It seems like only yesterday we had the last earnings cycle
Can it be?
Next week bank earnings will kickoff the quarterly earnings calendar. It seems like only yesterday that the last quarter was complete.
The thanks/financials traditionally are the first to report, but other names are in the mixed.
Some of the major releases include:
- J.P. Morgan
- Delta Airlines
- Domino’s pizza
- Bank of America
- Morgan Stanley
- Wells Fargo
- U.S. Bancorp
- UnitedHealth Group
- Goldman Sachs
- JB Hunt
That’s just the start, but it is the start.
It’s Columbus day in the US and Thanksgiving in Canada
Monday is a semi-holiday in the US — Columbus day — so that will crimp activity. The CME and NYSE are open and SIFMA doesn’t recommend a bond closure. However there is no economic data on the schedule so that could keep it quiet.
In Canada it’s a different story with all markets shut for the Thanksgiving holiday.
European and Asian markets are all open but the economic calendar everywhere is light.
