What You missed LAST Week  

                                       POWELL TESTIMONY, EEI FINANCIAL MEET, & WALMART EARNINGS

November 11—15, 2019 You can tell the majority of the Earnings Season is over by the number of I-bank Conferences on this calendar—the longest calendar in weeks, ex-the Earnings Section. And it will be a barn-burner of a week, with FOMC Chief Powell testifying at Congress, twice, After the Bond Market takes a Veterans Day rest, on Monday, even as both the Electricity Production and REIT industries hold separate, all hands on deck, mass analyst meetings. The former is the 54th EEI Financial Analysts Conference, the latter NAREITworld. And if you doubt their importance, all you need do is check the number of I-bank events taking place at each of them. EEI started Sunday, NAREIT starts Tuesday. And, if that wasn’t enough, NAR—the National Association of Realtors, via whom we get Pending Home Sales, monthly, and SABEW, the Society of American Business Business Editors & Writers, at which Patrick Harker is the lead off speaker, and ARDA—Resort Development, usually most heavily weighted with timeshare developers, where all the top hoteliers have dived in.

The Powell testimony should hold few surprises but we’re yet to see how the Street will react to him insisting that the Economy is well, and the FOMC has time to let the 3 rate cuts work into the system, doing nothing in the meantime. Philly Fed’s Patrick T. Harker will be answering audience questions @SABEW, the Society of American Business & Economic Writers, Tuesday. Most disturbing is the first session, right out of the gate, after welcoming comments is "Recession Coverage: How Can Business Journalists Prepare Audiences for the Next Recession?" I read that and my thoughts immediately leapt back to Richmond Fed’s Barkin comments, on 11/05—She said she doesn’t see a recession imminent but does worry we could talk ourselves into recession. Yeah, there was a lot of such talk flying around the Street but less since the FOMC’s most recent interest rate cut.

The Calendars at other websites present a conundrum, this week. Two Calendars have Charles Evans, the Chico Fed President, speaking at the 3rd Annual Philly Fed Fintech conference which the Philly Fed does not show as repeating this year. Then, another two calendars we consult has Pres. Trump speaking, 11/12, on Trade & the Economy at the Econ Club of NY. Problem is, the best known of those—the Economic Club of NY, does NOT show a Trump event on its website. Perhaps Trump has rented the club for a private event, or there’s another Econ Club in NY I don’t know about—a range of possibilities do exist, including a members only event the club is keeping from outsiders. Econoday & the CME show the event on their Calendars but I just can’t confirm that happening on Tuesday, and don’t blindly post what I can’t verify.

A few I-bank Conferences seem obvious to watch, including UBS’ Global Technology Conference, in Scottsdale AZ, Credit Suisse’s Healthcare Conference in the same city, both starting Monday. Morgan Stanley hosts its 8th Global Chemicals, Agriculture, & Packaging Conference, in Boston, starting Tuesday, the same day Citi starts Financial Technology, and Jefferies West Coast Consumer 1x1 in San Francisco. On Wednesday, JPMOrgan hosts Ultimate Services Investor, Sandler O’Neill Partners East Coast Financial Services, in Naples, FL, Berenberg Pain, in NY, Needham Big Data/Infrastructure Software 1x1, and ROTH Partners New Industrials & Technology. Given that mix, the event few may pay much attention to, initially, is Stephens, Wednesday, hosting Nashville Investment Conference. The first assumption may be healthcare, because it’s in Nashville, the 2nd might be mid & small caps. But all that would be wrong. Stephens is hosting multiple sectors, and the largest market cap company reporting is none other than Walmart, also reporting earnings on Thursday.

This might feel like a good place to move onto the Earnings Calendar, and I’d love to but, then, I’d miss mentioning Deutsche Bank’s dbAccess Gaming, Lodging, Leisure & Restaurants 1x1, and UBS’ Aerospace Conference, in Palm Beach FL, along with Wolfe Research’s Midstream Tour and JPMorgan’s Paris, France, Luxury & Brands Conference and Deutsche Bank’s dbAccess Lithium & Battery Supply Chain Conference, and the International Kidney Symposium, in Miami, starting Friday, or the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions, starting next Saturday, in Philadelphia.

And, then, we haven’t really done the Economic Calendar justice, since we haven’t mentioned the 11th BRICS Summit, starting Wednesday, in Brazil, distinguished from other multiple nation cooperation associations in that it states, outright, it’s a political, not an economic cooperation association. That could be why Russia’s Vladimir Putin is flying such a long way to get there for 2 days. Xi of China is attending, too, so we know Putin will have some competition in his efforts to expand his sphere of influence. A quick scan of the Economic Calendar shows the Fed Bank offers up more than just Powell, this week, with Vice Chairman Clarida speaking at 5:30am et, Monday, in Switzerland, and Tuesday, both Richmond’s Fed Pres. Barkin & Philly Fed’s Harker speaking, as is Minneapolis Fed’s Kashkari late in the day. Overnight, into Wednesday Morning, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will release an Interest Rate Decision, by which time it will be Wednesday, the 13th, there. That’s the day Powell testifies at the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, while Richmond Fed’s Barkin speaks on "The New Environment for Monetary Policy," presumably referring to policy after 3 "insurance" cuts. Also speaking Wednesday, Dallas Fed Pres. Kaplan, in a conversation on national & global economic issues with Douglas Holtz-Eaton, of American Action Forum, which badly fails to do his past history justice. Also Wednesday, US Oct CPI will be released, ten Thursday, Oct PPI—Final Demand. Clarida speaks, again, that day, on the Federal Reserve’s Review of its Monetary Policy, Strategy, Tools & Communications Practices," at the Cato Institute. Mid-day Thursday.

Also Thursday, NY Fed Pres/CEO John Williams is the lead off speaker at the San Francisco Federal Reserve’s AEPC—Asia Economic Policy Conference, complete with Q&A. AEPC is shaping up to be one big conference, with economists from many regional FRB, as well as S.F. Fed Pres. Daly, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, Bk of Korea, Banco Centro of Brasil, and Bk of Canada’s Gov. Poloz, all on opening day. On the 2nd day, Friday, Daly and a less stunning group of speakers will close out AEPC. Then, Friday, BoC’s Lane is a panelist on Digital Currency. Data releases will include US Oct Retail Sales, the Empire State NY FRB Manufacturing Survey, Import/Export Prices, Oct. Industrial Production/ Capacity Utilization, US Sept Business Inventories and, of course,Baker-Hughes’ weekly Rig Count

I’ll also note the empty BoE Calendar. Usually, when we check the following week’s planned schedule of announcements, speeches, economic data, etc, it’s filled with items. This week, there was nothing of current economic relevance--zippo—a Lord Mayo’s Show (a parade connected wo the appointment of the new Lord Mayor of London, a ceremonial position). and "Painting a Fortune: JMW Turner and the Bank of England," an exhibit of research from the BoE archive that "sheds light on the famous artist’s career and investments." The Lord Mayo’s show is an annual "procession" that starts at the BoE. The position was created in 2000 but the "show"—a parade/procession, has been occurring since the 16th century. The only other item is the display of Tuner’s work, and the bank’s records of his transactions, including his first investment at just 18 years of age, 3% of Consols stock. The exhibit at the BoE museum is associated with Turner starring on the new 20 GBP note. Other than those entries, there’s nothing until 11/27, which may suggest the ECB expected to be putting out all kinds of "fires," after the 10/31 planned Brexit, so lightened up its load in the immediate aftermath. Certainly, neither of these items would have wound up on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors website, were they happening here.

Stephens is hosting a couple of sub-sector dinners associated with its Nashville Conference. On the 13th, it’s holding a Transportation Dinner. Transport-related companies attending include the following tickers: ATSG, CP, DSGX, CVTI, ECHO, FDX, FTAI, HTLD, JBHT, KNX, MRTN, NSC, RUSHA, SRI, ULH, USAK, USX, WERN, WNC, WKHS, YRCW, as of this post, all on the 13th. The Nashville Investment
Conference, which starts the same day, and runs through the 15th, has a tremendous list of participating companies, across multiple sectors, the biggest, as I pointed out earlier, Walmart, the smallest market cap, perhaps, Zynga. Just don’t tell Stephens where you obtained the link within this paragraph, please.

Which lands us on Earnings, where more media companies are reporting, including Cumulus, Qurate (HSN, QVC), and Tencent Music, Monday. Tuesday, CBS, CBS, and homebuilder D R Horton. Wednesday, Beazer Homes and McClatchy, Thursday, Applied Materials, Dolby, and Viacom, in addition to the aforementioned Walmart. But also on the calendar, Rockwell Automation, Tyson Foods, Canada Goose, Cisco Systems, NetApp, and Stratasys, before Friday’s J C Penney & JD.com. Not a big list but one with some punch, nonetheless.

All of which makes for a very busy week and the possibility of some minefields not delivering the narrative the Street has sold itself—1] The Fed has the Market’s back. 2] The slowdown has already ended, because the Fed cut rates 3x. 3] The trade war is easing—with the Chinese claiming the US agreed to roll back some tariffs as a condition of signing Phase 1 of a Trade Deal, Trump, on the White House lawn, Friday, insisting that’s not something he’s agreed to you yet.

So, I’ll point out the fact that Trump was boasting of the greatest Phase 1 deal with China in the history of the U.S., shortly after their last meeting. Not hours later, the Chinese said not really, they think another meeting will be necessary to finalize Phase 1 before signing it. Now, it’s the Chinese claiming all their terms were agreed to for Phase 1, and Trump saying, not so fast—he hasn’t agreed to roll back any tariffs as a condition of signing Phase 1, even though he already pushed off some that were due to be instituted on Oct. 15th. So, it sounds to me like Trump is waiting for one more thing associated with the Phase 1 deal, while the Chinese are prepared to dig in their heels on insisting a rollback of some tariffs, as a condition of signing the Phase 1 deal—a mostly agriculture deal, much as the details have been released—and few of them. So, if you think the market is ready to hear more China trade back and forth, and Powell saying the FOMC is on lock-down, for awhile, pending incoming data, which would, still, have to meet a high bar for them to cut again, then this market is for. Be my guest, keep buying at ever higher highs, even as the Earnings outlook has softened, and Unemployment probably has peaked, though we won’t see that clearly, until all the retail seasonal hires begin getting laid off in late December, the January. Yes, all the technical conditions for more gains appear well set up but how many more points? How much higher? Was it Bernard Baruch who said, something to the effect of, he made all his money by letting others stick with stocks for the last 5% move, even as he sold out?

EARNINGS: (We no longer separate pre- from post-market releases. If you see this, "???" after a ticker, it means we’ve seen the ticker on many competing Earnings Calendars but couldn’t confirm the date ourselves. Any company that didn’t confirm by Thursday, 10/31, at noon, is not included. We usually check every IR site for every company supposed to report but now, frequently, hit a wall because we won’t permission cookies at all of them. In those instances, 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 stock indices, altogether, or a group that’s dominant during the week. It’s subjective, and you’re free to disagree. We ignore "the" in a company name unless it’s integral to the ticker—it rarely is..)

FILMS OPENING: "Charlie’s Angels," directed by Elizabeth Banks, staring Hailee Steinfeld, Naomi Scott, Kristen Stewart, & Elizabeth Banks, via Columbia Pictures (SNE). "Ford v Ferrari," staring Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Caitriona Balfe, telling the story of the 1966 24 hour Le Mans battle between Ferrari and the car Ford (Carroll Shelby) built to compete via 20th Century Fox (DIS). "The Good Liar," starring Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen, directed by Bill Conden, the story of a career con artist who falls in love with his mark, based on a novel by Nicholas Searle, via New Line Cinema (T). "Waves," written & directed by Trey Edward Shults, starring Taylor Russell, Kevin Harrison Jr, Alexa Demie, via A24. "The Warrior Queen of Jhansi," sweeping epic about a woman who fought the domination of British East India Company, in India, culminating in the mutiny of 1857. The film is directed by Swati Bhise, in her directorial debut, and written with her daughter Devika Bhise, who’s one of the stars, along with Jodhi May, Rupert Everett, Derek Jacobi, distributed in the US by Roadside Attractions, in which LionsGate (LGF.A) has a large stake. "Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer," a documentary directed by Mark Landsman, distributed by Mark Cuban & Ty Warner’s Magnolia Pictures, the biggest surprise the claim that any story about the trash tabloid is still "Untold." Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios bought rights to "All Rise," a film based on a award winning novel by Walter Dean Myers, that follows a 17 yr old honors student who gets involved in a robbery that results in murder, the judge describing the student as a monster. It’s unfortunate that CBS (CBS) launched a weekly series by the same name, in September, confusing the issue for the film.
