Bank of America became the fifth major bank to report so far this earnings season, and it came in with better-than-expected results. The spotlight shines on Netflix this afternoon.
Streaming content giant Netflix is expected to open its Q3 books on October 16 after the close, as competitors including Disney, Apple and Comcast’s NBC Universal prepare to ramp up their own streaming services
Earnings season kicks off today with a quartet of major banks reporting. The results so far point to a mixed picture, with strength at some balanced by weakness at others as we await more color from executives on the calls.
Though Technology has been the sector leader in 2019, concerns over the economy and trade policy have many companies issuing negative guidance in recent weeks. This is an important dynamic to watch over the coming month.
The day starts with investors re-evaluating the meaning of a “phase one” agreement with China amid varying news reports. The earnings season gets underway with a bang tomorrow.
The market is in rally mode early Friday as optimism grows about possible progress in today’s trade talks. That said, there’s always a chance things could go south, so keep the seatbelts fastened.
