                                           Here's What You missed LAST Week                                                                                 

                                      WORK IN PROGRESS, in case Irma knocks power & internet offline. Our webhost is in Coral Springs, FL, with back-ups in Houston TX. Not the best cities for the promised uptime, thanks to Harvey, Irma &, even, Josie. Rather than withhold all I’ve worked on for days, I posit that partially finished is better than nothing at all. So here is the largely Unedited and Unfinished Outlook.

September 11—15, 2017 I’m preparing this, well aware my work may be for naught, even if the worst Hurricane Irma does is what happened here after Wilma & Jean—which tore off the roofs of most of the houses, including mine, knocked out cellphones for 7—9 days, sent wired phone lines offline for 11 days (67 in my mom’s case, just 8 miles away), and kept the power off for 9—11 days. Sum it up? Don’t know if a thing created here will ever see the light of day before a new Outlook is prepared a week from Sunday but I can only do what I can do, and that’s create one for this week, especially given a ridiculous # of events this week, again. And here’s the irony of preparing the schedule, as usual: there are so many events in the path of Irma, that a large number of events could be canceled, even if I post!

EIA weekly Crude Oil/Gasoline/Distillate Stats (Harvey & Irma skew #’s)

Won’t if be funny if the ABIA—American Bankers Insurance Ass’n—Annual has to be canceled due to Hurricane Irma? It’s scheduled to start on the 11th, Monday, and promised Flood Insurance/RESPA Official as one of the keynotes.

ISS World on the 11th, is highlighting the "Lawful Interception of VoIP & IP-Enabled Services, NSA Retention, Cyber Threat Detection & Information Sharing. This is a group the got involved with BlackBerry when some countries decided its e-mail system wads too secure, so its devices should be banned. ISS Represents the law’s point of view.

Delivering Alpha is co-hosted by CNBC & Institutional Investor, the former sure to have it dominate its schedule on the 12th. That’s also the day GS will explain why FICC collapsed by (-40.0)% last Qtr, y/o/y speaking at Barclays FinServices Conference, and also be the day Chipolte (CMG) Mexican Grill takes its Queso nationwide after a regional test just long enough to create the max buzz.

CAT Investor Day on the 12th, probably makes moot CAT’s appearance at Morgan Stanley’s 5th Annual Laguna (CA) Conference, the following day, as well as at RBC’s Global Industrials 2 days later, on the 14th.

EARNINGS: (We drop "the" in a company name unless it’s integral to the ticker. Emboldened tickers are those we expect to draw the most attention. Question marks after a ticker means we confirmed the earnings date but not the time of day. Because of Hurricane Irma, for which we’ve been preparing, any company that didn’t confirm its earnings day by Wednesday, 09/06, at 3:30pm et, couldn’t be included.)
