What You missed LAST Week  
   

                                                                          INSTEAD OF ASKING, WHAT IF BIDEN & DEMS SWEEP, ASK WHAT IF WE
                                                             HAVE TO SUFFER FOUR MORE YEARS OF A NARCISSISTIC TRUMP???


July 27—31, 2020 There’s an FOMC meeting, this week but, really, who cares? Rates aren’t going anywhere for a long time, and the biggest risk Jerome Powell et al pose is a dose of reality. The "V" shaped recovery that was looking so good when the economy first reopened has been all but buried by the revival in coronavirus cases. Maybe some still won’t mask-up, and some teens and twenty-somethings are still partying like it’s 1999 but a goodly portion of the country has been scared back into their houses, causing restaurant seating, where still allowed, to nose dive. In his July testimony, Powell was accused as being more dour than necessary but, alas, perhaps he was right, after all., Many people—not just seniors—are going out as little was possible,, sheltering-in-place without anyone ordering them to do so.

Aside from Wednesday’s FOMC statement & Powell press conference, the Economic Calendar promises June Durable/Capital Goods Orders & Shipments, Monday. It seems possible that’s the day the top tech CEOs testimony will be postponed, due to a memorial service for Rep. John Lewis, the Civil Rights activist and so-called "conscience of Congress." Congress is sure going to need a conscience, this week, seeing as the Republicans haven’t done squat on the HEROES Act the Democratic US House passed a month ago, which is causing the Federal Unemployment Benefit--$600 per week—to expire without a replacement of any kind. While many have, rightly, complained that the $600 per week took some Unemployment Benefits above the salary beneficiaries were collecting by working. But any working stiff forced to pay for his own health insurance and drug/doctor appointment co-pays knows that $600 barely covers those expenses, monthly, nevermind leaving anything over for rent or a mortgage, car payments and food. While the CEOs will testify or be postponed, V.P. Pence will be in Miami to see the first large human trials of a COVID-19 Phase II vaccine get underway. Wonder whether he’ll be putting his arm out to volunteer, and whether anyone will believe he’s really being used to trial an unproven vaccine, or faking it.

Also on the Economic Calendar, the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-city Home Price Index for May, and a slug of Treasury Auctions. Wednesday, before the FOMC statement is released, NY Fed Pres./CEO William Dudley is in conversation with the OMFIF, on US Economic Policy & Outlook, followed by June Pending Home Sales from the Nat’l Ass’n of Realtors. Thursday, the weekly Initial Jobless Claims/Continuing Claims, along with the NIPA Comprehensive Annual Benchmark Revision. NIPA is the National Income & Product Accounts, revised July, annually. On the 30th. think of it as a super-duper GDP compilation. Also Thursday, as it turns out, we’ll get the advance Q2 GDP—the first look at Gross Domestic Product, which includes Business Spending, CapEx, Household Spending, and the FOMC’s favorite indicator, PCE—Personal Consumption Expenditures. Then Friday, we’ll get a 2nd look at PCE, when June Personal Income & Spending are released, along with the Savings Rate & PCE. Also Friday, Drs. Fauci, Redfield & Admiral Giroir are scheduled to testify in Congress on the National Response to Coronavirus. Since there’s pretty much agreement that Pres. Trump messed up the response—four months worth, to be exact—I imagine that’s happening at the US House, where the Democratic majority is looking to seize every possible opportunity to embarrass the Republicans.

The Earnings Calendar is quite a handful. There are new economy reporters like F5, NXP and SAP Monday, AMD, Akamai, Ebay, Starbucks, Seagate, and Visa, on Tuesday, plus Wednesday, Equinix, Facebook, PayPal, Qorvo, Qualcomm, ServiceNow, Shopify, Spotify Technology S.A.., and TeleDoc. Thursday, we’ll hear from Alphabet’s Google, Amazon, American Tower, Apple, Comcast, EA, Intercontinental Exchange, MasterCard. Friday, Pinterest stands out.

On the other hand, there’s also a surfeit of old world Earnings Reports expected, as well, which isn’t to dismiss any of their attempts to drag themselves into the new economy, whether it’s McDonald’s digital ordering, or GM & Ford’s attempts to develop electric powertrains, and autonomous driving vehicles. Still, they have 3 feet of a 4 pedestal table in the old world, so that’s how they’re seen. Monday, look for Hasbrok and Heidrick & Struggles. Tuesday, 3M, Amgen, Armstrong World Flooring, Asbury Auto, Avis, Big 5 Sporting Goods, Boyd Gaming, Celanese, Centence, Chubb, Community Health, Corning, Cummins, D.R. Horton, Denny’s, DexCom, Ecolab, Harley-Davidson, Invesco, Jetblue, LabCorp, Martin Marietta Materials, McDonalds Restaurants, Mondelez, MSCI, Omnicom, Pfizer, Polaris, Rayfheon Technologies, RenaissanceRe Holdings, Rockwell Automation, Roper Industries, Ryder, S&P Global Intelligence, Sherwin-Williams, Wyndham Hotels, and Zebra Technologies.

Wednesday, there are reports expected from Anthem Health, Apache, Archer Daniels Midland, Automatic Data Processing, Avalon Bay Apartments, Boeing, Deutsche Bank, DinEquity, Eaton, Enterprise Products, Genearl Dynamics, General Electric, the aforementioned GM, GlaxoSmithKline, Hess Oil, Holobix, Interpublic, Lam Research, M/I Homes, Mid Atlantic Apartments, Norfolk Southern, O’Reilly Automotive, Penske Automotive, Pilgrim’s Price, Scotts-Miracle Gro, Werner Trucking, WingStop, and Yum China.

Thursday is by far the heaviest day for Earnings releases. In addition to the new economy names mentioned, we’ll also hear from AGCO, Alexion, AB InBev, Anheuser Busch, Arrow Electronics, AstraZeneca, Baxter, Beazer Homes, Bio-Rad, Brunswick, Builders FirstSource, Cigna, Columbia Sportswear, Conoco-Phillips, Eli Lilly, Expedia, Ford, Gilead Sciences, Group 1 Automotive, HanesBrands, The Hartford Financial, Host Hotels, Kellogg’s, Keurig Dr Pepper, Kraft Heinz, Mettler Toledo, Mohawk Brands, Molina Health, Molson Coors, Newmont Gold, Northrup Grumman, Pebblebrook Hotel Trust, PG&E (fresh out of bankruptcy), Procter & Gamble, Shake Shack, Stanley Works, Striker Corp, Taylor Morrison Homes, United Parcel Service, Valero, Vertex Pharma, Waste Management, Xilinx, YUM Brands.

Which brings us to Friday, when reports are expected from Abbvie, Caterpillar, CBOE, Charter Communications, Chevron, Church & Dwight, Colgate-Palmolive, ExxonMobil, Fiat Chrylser, L3Harris, Merck, Phillips 66, Under Armour & VF Corp.

If you get the impression that the FOMC Meeting is likely to take 2nd place behind all the Earnings Reports, I’m not about to argue the point. Whatever we haven’t learned about the economy from the past couple of weeks or reports, we’re sure going to learn this week, as both the new & old economy report in force and volume.

Which brings us to the Events Calendar, which is especially light both because of the Earnings Calendar, cancellations, postponements, and summer, the last week of July usually Parents Weekend at camp, and the last unencumbered weekend before kids in southern school districts usually return to school. Of course, this year, the coronavirus has caused many school districts to postpone the start of school though none, yet, until after Labor Day, when the schools in the north usually start. Continuing Sunday, Retinal Specialists, and those specializing in Cataracts meet, along with the Alzheimer’s Association, all 3 Virtual meetings. NAIC, the State Insurance Commissioners also meet Virtually, along with AdWeek’s New Tech, and more. Monday, BCVS, a Basic Cardiovascular Sciences Scientific Sessions meets virtually, along with Soil/Water Ecosystems Services. CSCE20 claims it’s taking place in Las Vegas from the 27th to the 30th but the event site hasn’t been updated since Feb 8th. No matter which link we try, there’s no update to say it was converted to a virtual event, or postponed until next year. Among the co-located conferences are BioComp, BioEng, and others. Las Vegas has reopened, with casinos at 25% of capacity, so the 1K—2K researchers expected aren’t impossible for the MGM to handle but we can’t really confirm the original A.I. group meeting will take place live, in person, as the website claims

Tuesday, Keefe Bruyette Woods breaks the mold by holding a Virtual Community Bank Investor Conference. Smart Grid—Grid Evolution also meets virtually, along with CompTIA, for its partner summit, and the Permian Basin Completions Optimization & Interwell Communications event.

Wednesday, Southeast Building and the ABI Northeast Bankrputcy-Consumer Conferences are both virtual events, as is SNAC Int’l elevating Marketing Confeerence for the Snack industry. Thursday, ICSC (Shopping Center Owners) host a Next Generation Virtual Conference while the National Medical Association, for African America M.D.s is hoting a virtual event on Transcending COVID-19 to a Healthier Black America. Friday, the Future of Breast Cancer will beheld Virtually, while ESTRO, for European Radiology Oncologists rescheduled for Nov. More important, Friday, is the arrival of 22 NBA—National Association of Basketball—teams gather at Walt Disney’s ESPN World Complex, outside Orlando FL, to continue the season ended in March.

Saturday, AIAA, an airport group, and USU jointly holst their Annual Small Satellite Virtual Conference, while the ASBC--Brewing Chemists—rescheduled their annual meeting for September through October, as on-demand webinars.

Clearly, despite an FOMC meeting, it’s earnings that will control markets, this week. The old economy is dominant but there are some star new economy companies reporting, whose results will determine whether last week’s consolidation (Correction to some) is arrested after a week or has more room to the downside. Meantime, every time a pundit talks about what a Biden win, and/or Democratic sweep of the White House & Congress could mean to markets, I instead want them to answer what 4 more years of a narcissistic, tempermental, possibly unhinged Pres. Trump could mean—not just to our relations with China but our relations with all of Europe, and even Canada & Mexico. What would 4 more years of Trump mean for the dollar? For our economy, in general, not to mention our public health. And I don’t just mean the virus ravaging 30 states but environmental protections, as well, not to mention the constitutionally provided states’ autonomy. Do you want unnamed Federal troops overrunning your hometown? How oood do you think 4 more years of Pres. Trump would be?

EARNINGS: (We ignore "The" in a company name unless it’s integral to the ticker. It isn’t, for example, in either Hartford Financial or Kraft Heinz, so neither are placed as alphabetically to acknowledge "The" in its name. On the other hand, BOTH The Container Store, TCS, & The Hanover Insurance Group (THG) includes "the" in their tickers, so they’re alphabetized accordingly, on Tuesday. On the flip side, on Wednesday, neither The Cheesecake Factory nor The Chef’s Warehouse acknowledge "The" in their tickers, so it’s ignored. If you are a big time bank investor, we’re not for you. We cover, only, the big money center banks and largest regionals. The rest are omitted. We usually check the IR site for every prospective reporter but are often thwarted because we don’t accept any but necessary cookies, or because they don’t have an accessible English IR site, or other reasons. This week, there were simply too many to check, and too many other things to do. Any company that didn’t confirm by noon, Thursday, the 16th, is not included. "???" after a lower case ticker means we’ve seen it listed for that day but couldn’t confirm. Emboldened tickers, are those reports we expect to attract the most attention. It’s subjective, and you’re free to disagree.)
