President-elect Joe Biden announces details of his stimulus plan, and earnings season kicks off with mixed results from JP Morgan, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo.
Big banks are set to kick off earnings season tomorrow, and next week a new administration is set to take over. Markets could be in for a sort of "transition day."
The traditional start of earnings season is just two days away, and in the meantime Wall Street has its eyes on events in Washington and a pretty mild inflation reading. Crude is up and small caps have been leading the charge lately.
The market looks like it’s attempting another turnaround Tuesday with many investors anticipating a strong earnings season. Data and earnings are a bit light today, so Washington could remain in focus.
The day starts with most of the indicators pointing higher. Crude, stocks, yields all are in the green early, and focus could again be on Washington as the Senate contemplates a bigger stimulus check.
Washington is in focus today after the House passed a bill raising direct payments to $2,000. Senate approval seems less likely. Meanwhile, hotel and airline stocks shined yesterday, and the 737-MAX takes to the skies.
Stocks appear poised for a positive beginning to a short holiday week. There’s little data and basically no earnings of note to track, but thin volume could cause sharper market moves at times.
In the past, gridlock in Washington has often been associated with strong outcomes for the stock market. It looks like we’ll have gridlock again in 2021, so which sectors stand to possibly benefit, and is there any potential market downside?

Apple’s recent iPhone 12 rollout is likely to be front and center when the firm opens its books Thursday afternoon. Another question is whether AAPL decides to issue guidance after declining to do that in recent quarters.
It’s been a wild year so far with the pandemic, and now a presidential election is just a few weeks away. Between election news, earnings season, and hopes for a vaccine, October seems to promise plenty of action. And volatility.
Stock splits have increased as the U.S. market extended its bull run, but the actual benefits for investors are questionable.
Growth stocks versus value stocks—a case can be made for both. But which way should an investor's portfolio lean these days?
For years, investors focused on the FAANG stocks to get a sense of how market sentiment shaped up. Now there’s a few new acronyms that could be worth getting to know.
FAANG stocks and other big-name flyers were, not too long ago, start-ups with no clear path to sustained profitability. If you’re looking for the next potential disruptors, how might you go about assessing candidates? You might want to go beyond traditional fundamental analysis.
There’s more to portfolio diversification than stocks and bonds. Factors like market capitalization, international vs. domestic holdings, and sub-sector exposure all deserve consideration as you build a well-diversified portfolio.
A well-diversified strategy with wider exposure across the market might seem less thrilling than chasing leaders, but might give investors a better chance to meet goals.
