    Earnings Next Week - 10/5 - 10/9

    Earnings Next Week - 10/5 - 10/9

    Of the companies reporting next week my favorite to watch is YUM! Brands (YUM).  About half their sales come from China and in my mind this is one of the best ways to get an idea what is going on in that part of the world.  As always the numbers represent the last 12 earnings announcements.

    Alcoa kicks things off, but it is still a pretty light week.  We won't have to wait for long as the earnings floodgates always open just after AA's numbers come out.  Three years of earnings history reaction for the three stocks reporting next week -

    2" of rain and spectacular lightning meet Chicago traders on their way in from the train this morning.  Alcoa kicked off Q1 earnings season with slight disappointment.  Weekly Jobless in at 281K, FED minutes fairly dovish.  European shares up, as is Oil (~1.5%).   Masters starts today, nice to see Jack Nicklaus with a hole-in-one in yesterday's Par-3 contest, as well as Tiger's entourage.  Volatility as an asset class: Alcoa (AA) is down $0.37 to $13.31 in the preopen[...]

    Alcoa reports next week and even though the stock was booted from the Dow Jones Industrial Average a few quarters ago traditionalists (old guys like me) still consider AA earnings the beginning of earnings season.  The calendar is light next week, but hold on to your hat, things are going to get busy soon. For newbies, the table below summarizes the last 12 quarters of stock price reactions to earnings reports with biggest rally, drop, average move, and what happened last quarter.

    US stocks higher, oil lower by 3%  in early trade, a repeat of what we've seen for the last several weeks.  Alcoa starts off the quarterly earnings reports after the close, Jolts report tomorrow could be an interesting read. If you're not a believer in Social Media, over 750 K tweets in 15 minutes after Dez Bryant catch/non-catch in Dallas / Green Bay game yesterday.  Volatility as an asset class NPS Pharmaceuticals (NPSP) is up $3.57 to $45.48 in the premarket on Shire (SHPG) acquiring[...]

    Next Week in Weeklys - 1/12 - 1/16

    Alcoa reports Monday (1/12) after the close. Despite AA having been removed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average many market observers consider AA’s report to be the beginning of earnings season. Personally I think things get going when all the big financials report which begins Wednesday with JP Morgan Chase (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC). The three year history for stocks with short dated options available appear in the table below – I came across an interesting use of short dated[...]
