What You missed LAST Week  
                                                                    NOT JUST BANK EARNINGS

July 15—19, 2019 While the media will be trying to fan a debate between those who believe the Fed will cut by half a point in 2 weeks, and those who believe it will be only a quarter of a point, I’d maintain there is no debate. The FOMC is going to go with a quarter point, partially persuaded by the outlooks from banks reporting, this week, which will take into account lower net interest margin—NIM to the trade—because the FOMC is widely expected to cut by a quarter point. Think about it: an interest rate cut hurts savers and banks, especially, and not something usually done when unemployment is at 3.6%, and stocks are making new all time highs. Furthermore, if Powell is hoping a quarter point cut will silence the President, he’s going to be rudely awakened to the foolishness of that thought.

Powell, it turns out, is speaking in France, Tuesday, at Bretton Woods 75 Years Later: Thinking About the Next 75, in Paris. His topic is, "Aspects of Monetary Policy in the Post-Crisis Era." The conference is a joint undertaking of the ECB and Banque de France. Powell won’t be alone, with BoE Gov.Carney and World Bank’s freshly minted President, David Malpass, speaking there, too, as well as the IMF Managing Director, David Lipton, Carmen Reinhart, Jean-Claude Trichet, and the French Minister for Economy & Finance. Most of them are all on their way to the G7 Finance Ministers & Central Bank Governors meeting, also in France, the 17th & 18th. ECB’s Draghi & Coeure are also attending.

But there’ll be plenty of Fed speakers at home, too. Monday, the NY Fed Pres/CEO Williams keynotes SIFMA’s "LIBOR: Transition Briefing: The Transition to Alternative Reference Rates," a half day workshop. Fed’s Evans will speak at CNBC’s @Work Series, in Chicago, late in the day, while Fed’s Bostic kicks off Tuesday, at another Fed Listens Event, in Augusta GA. Between those Tuesday speakers, Facebook will appear at the Senate, which is holding hearings on its proposed Libra cryptocurrency. At the US Judiciary’s Antitrust Subcommittee, representatives from Facebook, Alphabet’s Google, Amazon & Apple will defend themselves against charges that their dominance impacts not just online platforms but stifles innovation & entrepreneurship, besides. Congress will quite the attraction this week: former Special Counsel, Robert Mueller III is scheduled to testify, Wednesday, even after his press conference was intended to be the last word from him on his investigation.

And that’s not all, for the Economic Calendar. Overnight, Sunday, China’s Statistics Bureau will dump a ton of June data, including New Home Sales, Fixed Asset Investment, Industrial Production, Retail Sales, Jobless Rate, and both Q2 and YTD GDP. The BIG slowdown Trump keeps insisting his tariffs are causing are sure to be nowhere in sight. The Chinese would never give him the satisfaction, and surely don’t want the populace to worry that anything’s wrong. US data includes surveys, like the Empire State Manufacturing one, Monday, and the Philly Fed’s version on Thursday. We’ll also get US June Retail Sales, Business Inventories—for wholesalers, retailers, and manufacturers, NAHB’s July Housing market Index, June Housing Starts & Building Permits, the Fed’s Beige Book Wednesday, Also Thursday, NY Fed Pres/CEO Williams is back to keynote CEBRA—the Central Bank Research Association Annual Meeting in NY, co-sponsored by Columbia University, and the NY Fed. Fed dove Bullard is speaking Friday, as are Fed’s Rosengren and the BoJ’s Kuroda on Friday.

Other items of note on the Economic Calendar include the Apollo 50th Anniversary Gala, on Tuesday night, with Cisco’s Webex connecting the host NASA center in Florida, Mission Control in Houston, and the satellite Tracking Agency in Australia, without whom the many Apollo missions could not have succeeded. Also that night, a data dump from the UK, which will make clear how the drawn out Brexit negotiations are impacting the country’s economy. Today, as Roger Federer & Novac Djokovic battled it out for Wimbledon Champion, not only were Kate & William there but so, too, was Prime Minister May, sitting in the royal box. I believe anyone who saw the first walk on the moon will never forget where they were when they saw it. Also on the Economic Calendar, Tankan Surveys for Japan, and ZEW’s for the Eurozone & Germany.

If all of this sounds exhausting, get a load of the Earnings Calendar. Unlike when Q4 was reported, and the first week of Earnings came from 16 banks an just about no one else, this week, even those companies like Goldman Sachs & Microsoft, which usually report the 2nd big week are, instead, reporting this week. Citi is first out of the gate, on Monday but, even Wells Fargo, usually a Friday reporter is, instead, reporting Tuesday this week, along with JPMorgan, CSX, Goldman Sachs, Johnson & Johnson, and United Airlines. With a competing and larger oil refinery deciding to shut down, after a major fire, UAL is looking prettier all the time. Normally, other Tuesday reporters like Canadian Pacific Railroad, and Cintas would be no match for the banks reporting that day but CTAS is a good read on factory activity.

Wednesday, we’ll hear from Bk of America, Bank of NY Mellon, Kinder Morgan, Netflix, Omnicom, PNC Financial, & US Bank but of exceptional interest is IBM’s first report since closing on Red Hat last week, which will inform its outlook. Thursday, reports are coming from Alliance
Data Systems, .Ally Financial, BB&T (soon to be renamed the unfortunate Truist, when its merger with SunTrust closes), Blackstone, Capital One Financial, newly public Chewy.com, Danaher, E Trade Financial, Honeywell, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, homebuilder NVR, Philip Morris International, Pook Corp, paint company PPG, SAP, Skechers, Snap-On, SunTrust, Union Pacific, and United Health. Friday, American Express, Autoliv, BlackRock, Charles Schwab, Citizens Financial, Cleveland Cliffs, Gentex, Kansas City Southern, Manpower, Regions Financial, Schlumberger, Sensient, State Street, and Synchrony Financial.

My heart be still but if no one else were reporting for the rest of the month, we’d have a pretty broad view of the market, overall. Again, It’s financials that may disappoint the most. Not only might trading be weaker than usual but bank outlooks can’t be strong, given they have lower rates to look forward to, just as they’re finishing the first six months of better rates than they’ve enjoyed for 10 years. So, not only might Q2 reports disappoint but Q3 & 2H outlooks are sure to be weaker than they were last year. But heck! Who cares?

So it’s said, and with all due respect to the guys who risked their lives going into space, NASA is pulling out all the stops for the Apollo 50th Anniversary Gala, on the 16th, at the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In addition to 500 guests at the space center, there will be astronauts Mike Collins (Apollo 11), Charles Duke (Apollo 16), Rusty Scweickart (Apollo 9), Gerry Griffin (Apollo flight director at Mission Control for 3 lunar missions), and hooked up by Cisco Webex (teleconference) will be the USS hornet & the Satellite Trackers in Canberra Australia, 3 members of their crew, who kept Apollo communications connected to Florida and the Houston Space Center. The USS Hornet crew is who rescued the Apollo 11 astronauts after they splashed down in the Pacific Ocean, on 7/24, 1969. Included in that crew is Sgt Joe Holt who provided security to Pres. Richard Nixon, as he watched splashdown aboard the Hornet, before helicoptering off. We’ve also be told, on the QT, that Webex will connect the Int’l Space Station to the festivities, as well.

CEBRA, Columbia U SIPA (School of Int’l & Public Affairs), & NY Fed Reserve co-sponsor the Annual meeting. NY Fed’s John Williams keynotes on Monetary Policy. Also speaking: Greg IP (WSJ), IBM, profs from Harvard, Brookings institution, Stanford U, Columbia Um Fed Banks of St. Louis, Cleveland, & San Francisco, SNB, ECB, Bundesbank, IMF, Norges Bank, BoJ’s Kuroda, Bk of Israel and many more. Larry Summers & Ben Bernanke will participate on panels organized by the IMF on Monetary Policy in the New Normal, Fri, starting at 9am. About half the governors of the Central Bk of Ireland will participate in panels on Understanding Market Based Finance & Non-Bank Financial Institutions, one topic of which is Empirical Network Contagion for US Financial Institutions. Economists Carmen Reinhart & Ken Rogoff participate in the Evolution of Monetary Policy Frameworks: Past, Present & Future, Exchange Arrangements entering the 21st Century: Which anchor will hold? When you navigate to the link provided for the CEBRA meeting, click on the program link, then be sure to get to subsequent pages. Initially, it looked like there was only a partial page and nothing else. Paging down several times took us to the subsequent pages. CEBRA may have a more impressive group of participants than G7’s FinMins & Central Bankers in France—especially given anyone can link to the streams from CEBRA, which they can’t do for G7.

The Allen & Co conference wraps Sunday, so be looking out for the next deal. Some think the buy is what remains of Fox, while I keep looking at LionsGate and think it’s just too cheap for words, given its library, and the number of companies hungry for content to feed their planned streaming services. I’m scratching my head over ALPA—Airline Pilots Ass’n Air Safety Forum in D.C., starting M,onday, while the APSCON—Airborne Public Safety Ass’n meetings in Omaha, and that’s before I even contemplate anyone other than Berkshire Hathaway meeting in Omaha, in the summer, or any other time of year. For that matter, why would the Sports Medicine division of the Orthopaedic Ass’n meet in Boston, while APMA—Podiatrists—meet in Salt Lake city? Well, OK, that one I can more easily understand—doctors don’t consider Podiatrists as well educated, anymore than they think chiropractors are doctors.

But forget all that, and all the other Events, for that matter. National Dental Ass’n meeting start Wednesday, in D.C., while they Academy of General Dentistry meets starting the next day, in Uncasville, CT (Mohegan Sun). The 15th & 16th are Amazon Prime Days, so the 14—17th are Walmart Deal Days, the 15th eBay Deal Day, and Target’s competing Deal Days on the 15th & 16th, but really all week, if you want to pre-book a deal with a Target Red Card. So forget all the other events, and maybe forget all the Earnings, too. Likewise, Nordstrom starts its Anniversary Sale on the 19th, which runs though August 4th—just long enough to capture Sales Tax Holidays in 11 states on 08/02—08/04, alone. To hear CNBC tell it, there’s likely to be nothing but Amazon to watch all week, wager whether its servers can handle the surge of customers, and whether any of the competing deals, in the end, were competition, at all. I can’t wait for the estimates of how many billions AMZN booked in sales. Last year, in a single day—11/11, Singles Day--Alibaba booked $11B in sales, while AMZN will never say how much it booked. It doesn’t even like providing quarterly sales and wouldn’t if the SEC didn’t force it to.

Meanwhile, another Monday, another Healthcare deal, This time, Gilead Sciences is expanding its stake in Galapagos NV (GLPG), with an agreement that includes a $3.95B upfront payment & and additional $1.1B investment into GLPG. It gives GILD "access to all current & future compounds in Galapagos’ rich pipeline while Galapagos is able to expand its research activities and build commercial infrastructure," GILD CEO Daniel O’Day said in a statement. GILD’s latest investment, at 140.59 euros ($158.43) p/share boosts GILD’s stake in GLPG to 22% from 12.3%; at a 10% premium to Friday’s close. The original deal, in 2015, gave GILD access to filgotinib, an experimental compound getting good buzz in rheumatoid arthritis & inflammatory bowel disease, whose submittal to the FDA for approval is expected before year end. Simultaneously, future development costs for filgotinib will be shared equally, replacing the 80/20 split provided by the earlier deal.

How long can the bulls keep pushing stocks to new highs? Well, the summer rally usually peaks the first or 2nd week of August, which is just in time to capture one more flurry to the upside, after the FOMC cuts rates at their meeting, at the end of the month. It’s financials that may be the odd men out, this earnings period, which is why I’d take profits on any additional gains they can manage. About the only group whose results have utter despair written all over them are retailers, and that still doesn’t make them a buy. I find the market exceptionally expensive. How ‘bout you?

(We no longer separate pre- from post-market releases. We cover only the major money center banks, large foreign banks traded in the US, and the largest regionals but for the first 2 weeks of Earnings Season, we include more of them (but NOT all), because financials so dominate the schedule. We ignore "the" in a company name unless it’s integral to the ticker—it rarely is. (We did NOT ignore ‘Charles’ in Schwab’s name, though, as many other services do.) . "???" after a ticker means we’ve seen it on many competing Earnings Calendars but couldn’t confirm it ourselves. Any company that didn’t confirm by Thursday, 07/11, at noon is not included. We often check the IR site for every company supposed to report but it’s too large a group from the 2nd through 6th week of Earnings Season. In those weeks, we’re guided by 3rd parties who have proven reliable in the past but could be wrong on any given ticker. Emboldened tickers are those we expect the Street and/or Media to focus on most, or those we believe will most impact a sector or stocks, altogether. This early in the Earnings Season, we highlight an array of stocks that are from sectors outside the dominant, financials. It’s subjective, and you’re free to disagree.)
