What You missed LAST Week:  

                                                                                          BIG BOYS REPORT TO END MONTH


October 25—29, 2021You’d think that with the G7/G20 meeting latr this week the Economic Calendar would be filed with Fed speakers but that’s not the case—though the BoE & ECB are a little busier. Instead, what really pops out of the Outlook is the Earnings Calendar, and the 5 biggest market cap stocks, like Facebook on Monday, Microsoft Tuesday, Apple on Weddnesday, Amazon on Thursday. We can throw in Visa on Tuesday, and MasterCard Thursday, because they’re still the global leaders for payments—even with ‘upstarts’ like Paypal eating into their share. Truth is, at more than 20% share of S&P 500 global market share, those stocks should be watched closely, to gauge how the senior index responds to their reports. Just bear in mind, the Dow Jones Industrials added 1.1% last week, the S&P +1.6%, which means they added some meat that may have stolen some of this week’s thunder.

Otherwise, we’re underwhelmed by the week’s schedule, albeit not without highlighting some additional Earnings reports, including Capital One Financial (COF) Tuesday, & Alliance Data Systems (ADDS) Thursday, both with a substantial share of US Credit Card transactions, both more retail store related than people realize. And no doubt, the week’s beef is in the Earnings Calendar, rather than Events or the Economic Calendar. In fact, the Events Calendar is one of the trimmest we’ve ever seen, as I-banks take a hiatus to allow the earnings Calendar to dominate.

And that’s how it is likely to turn out, even as the biggest market cap names in the S&P are set to beat but, possibly, not raise, given the changes Apple made to iOS, which is disrupting the advertising business for everyone else—as Snap told us last week, to its great devastation.

And then, it’s important to remember that the week ends the month, as well, with some portfolio rebalancing to be expected. That could mean the upside was seen last week, and this one will be a dud.

EARNINGS: (We ignore "the" in a corporate name unless integral to the ticker. It rarely is, AS IT IS not IN BOTH "The" Brink’s Co, "The" Chef’s Warehouse Inc. & "The" Coca-Cola Co, all on Wednesday. We cover only the biggest money-center banks, largest regionals, and biggest foreign banks listed here, or as ADRs traded here. Looking for more? We’re not for you. We usually check every ticker to affirm its report is coming but didn’t this week—as arrangements had to be made after a death in the family, last weekend. Please confirm any reports you’re interested in, since we probably didn’t.. Not the former chip company, CREE is now Wolfespeed, reporting Wednesday,. Ethan Allen Interiors saw ticker change, also, to ETD from ETH.)
