What You missed LAST Week:  
          
                                                      A THIRD WEEK UNCHANGED ON ITS WAY, as the Earnings Deluge Becomes a Tsunami

May 02—07, 2021 Thursday, more companies will report earnings than reported the entire first week of the Q1 Earnings Season. But unlike last week, there just aren’t the power in this week’s reports to take the entire market down, or lift it up. Powell is speaking Monday but on Community Development, hardly the kind of topic that moves markets strongly. And anyway, it’s far too soon to expect him to shift positions. In fact, many are coalescing on the August Jackson Hole Economic Summit for a change, if any is coming, to be detailed.

One item in favor of stocks is an extremely light calendar of Treasury Issuance. For all intents and purposes, Treasuries are over and done and Monday, given what’s left is 42-day, 4-week & 8-week issues, and nothing else. And of course, positioning will be difficult before Friday’s April Unemployment Report, when at least 1m job additions are expected—more hoped for. The Bank of England Financial Policy Committee meets Thursday with no change expected, despite intermittent spoken interest in negative rates, by some FPC members. The RBA (Aussie) also meets this week but with no power to influence US rates or equities.

The 29th Hyman P Mnsky Conference, on the 5th is from the Levy Economics Institute of Bard College. It’s subtitled ‘Prospects & Challenges for the US and Europe in an Emerging post-Pandemic Recovery.’ Among the speakers, Dallas Fed Pres. Kaplan, Chicago Fed Pres. Evans, Leuthold Group’s James Paulsen, Goldman Sach’s Jan Hatzius, and many other distinguished economists, including some former gov’t ones, like Harvard’s James Furman, and the Economic Cycles Research Institute’s Laksman Achuthan—the group that declares recessions & their conclusions. It usually makes news.

Which takes us to Earnings, a boatload of reports that crescendo on Thursday. But a quick glance at those emboldened, compared to the sheer volume of reports, pretty much says it all about our expectations for markets to move on the news., Energy-related & Hotel companies are prevalent among the reportors, along with major Pharma companies like Merck, Pfizer, Regeneron, & Moderna.. There are also a few cable companies, and T-Mobile along with the 3 largest auto insurers, ex-Geico & State Farm, which aren’t independently traded, though you can play Geico via Berkshire Hathaway. There are a slug of miners we simply couldn’t confirm. In fact, of all the sectors we include in the Earnings Calendars, none is more deficient in providing a heads-up than the miners. Very disappointing, given the number of gold believers there are as an age old hedge against inflation the gold bugs are sure is coming.—about to get out of control.

The Events Calendar sees the return of I-banks in greater numbers. Tuesday, OpCo hosts Industrials Growth, Wednesday, Wells Fargo Industrials. D.A. Davidson hosts Financial Institutions on Wednesday, Credit Suisse Xtreme Services on Thursday, a tech segment that is attracting greater interest all the time—even before Salesforce.com was added to the Dow jones Industrial Average. Friday, the FTSE Russell Indices Rank Date for June’s Rebalance will be issued after hours. There’ll be 5 more notices from FTSE Russell, before the rebalance actually happens but positioning will begin soon enough—and long before the rebalances are finalized.

VAX Live is a Charity event, Saturday night, organized by Global Citizen, Jennifer Lopez & Selena Gomez. It will also feature Foo Fighters, Eddie Vedder, H.E.R., and others who’ve signed on since it was first announced. Meanwhile, Billy Crystal is breaking the chain of movies premiered online as well as in theaters. He wrote, directed and also stars with Tiffany Haddish in "Here Today," which he insisted had to open exclusively in theaters, and not be streamed simultaneously. It’s another story of dementia overtaking a man’s mind—Crystal’s, in the film—the subject that won Anthony Hopkins an OSCAR last week, which the world thought would go to Chadwick Boseman.

Last week, our Outlook was for a 2nd flat week, and that’s what we got, with the S&P 500 flat, the DJIA off 0.5%. and the Nasdaq Composite off 0.4%. We’re calling for another week of consolidation, though the absence of serious Treasury issuance could weigh in the equity bulls favor. Beyond that is still anyone’s guess, and something we don’t have to venture except week by week.

EARNINGS: (We cover only the money center banks, biggest regionals, and largest overseas banks traded on US exchanges. If your interest in banks is outside that perimeter, we’re not for you. We ignore "The" in a corporate name, unless it’s integral to the ticker—which rarely occurs. I.e. Wednesday, The ODP Corp is ODP to us, just as its ticker implies. We embolden names we believe will attract the most analysts and/or media attention, and some whose charts are so impressive, we think the Street is missing it. On the flip side, those we couldn’t confirm-and there were simply too many this week-but saw on 2 reliable lists, are included with 3 question marks after the lower case ticker, if the timing seems right.)
