Week of Febuary 24, 2003

Sunday, January 26, 2003
Wall Street is still stuck in the middle of Q4 earnings season but Iraq is casting such a strong shadow any light of a rally attempts have been lost. Not that earnings have been that great anyway. We have a two-day FOMC meeting this week along with a number of economic reports. Plus the markets will be holding their breath for the UN report on Monday and the President's state of the union speech on Tuesday.

Week of January 20, 2003
Sunday, January 19, 2003

Reports to watch this week are the Consumer Confidence on Tuesday, Vehicle sales and the ISM index on Thursday, plus the Construction spending numbers on Friday.

Week of December 23, 2002
Sunday, December 22, 2002
Is the traditional Santa Claus rally upon us? The last two weeks of the year are a historically bullish phase for the markets. There is very little economic and earnings activity and most major players are home for the holidays. Check for the Personal Income/Spending numbers on Monday. Consumer Sentiment and New Home Sales come out on Friday.

Week of December 16, 2002
Sunday, December 15, 2002
Despite the holiday season, which is typically a bullish time for Wall Street, investors will have to watch out for those corporations who will be warning about their Q4 earnings numbers.

December is traditionally a bullish time of year for equities but Wall Street will be paying close attention to the Auto & Truck sales out on Monday as well as the Construction spending numbers. Wednesday reveals the productivity report and Friday will have several reports before the opening bell.

Week of November 25, 2002
Sunday, November 24, 2002
Thanksgiving week is traditionally a bullish time for the stock market. However, given that the Industrials have been up this many weeks in a row it could prove tough to add one more week to the rally. Keep an eye on Wednesday, as there are several economic reports that could influence the market sentiment.

Week of November 18, 2002
Sunday, November 17, 2002
It's a semi-quiet week on Wall Street. We still have a several third-quarter earnings announcements trickling in. The CPI report comes out on Tuesday and the Leading Indicators report will be out on Thursday.

Week of November 11, 2002
Sunday, November 10, 2002
The market will continue to react to late third quarter earnings reports. This week we'll see sector heavy weights AMAT report on Wednesday and DELL report on Thursday. Late in the week look for retail sales reports and the PPI.

Week of November 04, 2002
Sunday, November 03, 2002
Will they or won't they? There is still a steady stream of late third quarter earnings reports to keep the brokerage houses busy and stocks moving as they miss or beat the numbers. Yet the BIG focus this week will be the FOMC meeting on Wednesday. Will they cut, if so by how much, or will they stand pat?

Week of October 28, 2002
Sunday, October 27, 2002
The economic calendar is a bit more packed this week with GDP, PMI, the ECI report on Thursday and vehicle sales and payroll data on Friday. However, 3Q earnings will remain the spotlight aside from any Iraqi developments.

Week of October 21, 2002
Sunday, October 20, 2002
The new home sales numbers and sentiment report on Friday are the big economic reports this week but third quarter earnings will remain the headlining attraction on Wall Street.

Week of October 14, 2002
Sunday, October 13, 2002
Third quarter earnings are now in full swing. Headliners will probably be Intel on Tuesday and Microsoft on Thursday. The week's economic reports are weighted to come out on Thursday and Friday with Friday reporting the CPI numbers.

Week of October 07, 2002
Sunday, October 06, 2002
The earnings parade begins this week and GE really kicks it off on Friday before the bell. Friday the 11th is also full of economic reports. The ones to watch are Retail sales, the PPI and the Sentiment numbers.

Week of September 30, 2002
Sunday, September 29, 2002
Next week is packed with economic reports. Income and spending numbers come out on Monday. Auto sales and construction spending on Tuesday. ISM services on Thursday and more employment reports on Friday. Despite these reports the biggest market moving events will continue to be earnings warnings and misses.

Week of September 23, 2002
Sunday, September 22, 2002
The headline economic event this week will be the FOMC meeting on Tuesday. Currently there is almost zero expectation for the Fed to cut rates again. Given all the talk about a potential housing bubble the two home sales reports might merit watching. Keep an eye on the Sentiment report that comes out on Friday.

Earnings, earnings and more earnings is the name of the game on Wall Street this week. Current expectations are for a follow through from Friday into Monday's open before we bounce. The economic front is clear through Thursday where economists will be watching the ECI report and the New Home Sales.

Week of July 15, 2002
Sunday, July 14, 2002
While there is a full house of economic reports this week they will all take a back seat to the flood of Q2 earnings reports that will hit Wall Street. Big boys like INTC on Tuesday, IBM on Wednesday and MSFT on Thursday will be headliners.

Week of July 08, 2002
Sunday, July 07, 2002
Once again earnings season will dwarf any major economic reports in the eyes and hearts of investors. Earnings for the second quarter begin to trickle in on Monday but start to pick up mid-week. There are a couple of reports this week that will still have the attention of analysts and these will be the PPI on Thursday and the Retail Sales and Sentiment numbers on Friday.

Week of July 01, 2002
Sunday, June 30, 2002
With an earnings vacuum this week, investors will have their monocles focused on the stamina of the economy. And it all starts on Monday with Truck/Auto Sales, Construction Spending and the important ISM Index. Wednesday gives us the ISM Services Index and Factory Orders. Friday will offer the market plenty to shout--or scream--about when the employment stats, and unemployment rate, hit the wires an hour before trading begins. The big question: do investors care about any of this anymore?

Week of June 24, 2002
Sunday, June 23, 2002
Micron Technology and FedEx report earnings on Tuesday. But the big market movers this week--other than unforeseen global disasters, of course--are likely to be a pile of economic reports hitting the wires Tuesday through Friday: Housing numbers, Consumer Sentiment & Confidence, the Final GDP...pretty much everything but the kitchen sink! And of course don't forget that Doc Greenspan and his FOMC boys hold a two-day chitchat on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Week of June 17, 2002
Sunday, June 16, 2002
Earnings from the big brokerages--the Bear, Morgy, and Goldy--hit the market mid-week, while tech investors will fasten their seat belts--and wear their crash helmets?--for Tuesday evening's earning report from Oracle. This week's major economic reports include Tuesday's CPI and Housing Starts. Then there's Thursday's Leading Economic Indicators and the Philly Fed report. Other than that it will be a very quiet week!

Week of June 10, 2002
Sunday, June 09, 2002
Earnings are finally out of the way. So look for investors to concentrate on this week's indications of economic activity. Although the Federal Reserve releases its "Beige Book" report on Wednesday, more influential reports will be presented on Thursday (PPI & Retail Sales). Don't forget, though, that Friday will shoulder the bulk of potentially market-moving data: Industrial Production, Capacity Utilization, Business Inventories and Consumer Sentiment.

Week of June 03, 2002
Sunday, June 02, 2002
Did you hear it? Wall Street is already looking towards the June earnings warning season. Feels like we just finished the Q1 numbers. We're looking at a somewhat quiet week. Auto and truck sales come out on Monday and a small pile of reports come out on Friday.

Week of May 27, 2002
Sunday, May 26, 2002
With the earnings season essentially over, this week's focus will be on key economic reports: Tuesday's Consumer Confidence, Wednesday's Chicago Purchasing Managers Index and Friday's Productivity/Factory Orders reports. All of these will give us new insight into the health of the US economy. If consumers are feeling good and corporations are spending, look for the markets to applaud--loudly!

Week of May 20, 2002
Sunday, May 19, 2002
Do we have a real economic recovery yet? We'll know if the consumer is doing his (and her) part next week when we see piles of earnings reports from the like of The Limited, Saks, Target, Home Depot, Toys-R-Us and Autozone. Not enough recovery rubble to rummage through? Don't worry! You'll be able to get your fill with Monday's Leading Indicators report, Thursday's Durable Goods Orders numbers and Friday's all-important preliminary GDP figures. Who knows--maybe they'll all point in the same direction for a change!

Week of May 13, 2002
Sunday, May 12, 2002
Earnings season rambles on. Next week we'll have key tech stocks like BEA Systems, Applied Materials, Dell and Computer Associates reporting. IBM has an analyst meeting on Wednesday. Mix in Wednesday's CPI report, Thursday's housing numbers and Friday's consumer sentiment and we have the ingredients for another stimulating trading week. Yikes!

Week of May 06, 2002
Sunday, May 05, 2002
Wow, we've got one heck of a week in front of us. While Wall Street is still wrapping up earnings, Tuesday could be a day for volatility with the Wholesale Inventories report and the FOMC meeting. Plus, after the close on Tuesday, CSCO is expected to announce earnings which could set the tone of the tech sectors for the rest of the week. On Friday, analysts will be watching for the PPI report.

Week of April 29, 2002
Sunday, April 28, 2002
Wall Street is beginning to wrap up earnings season but it's still a very full week of announcements. Earnings news and views will maintain the spotlight while economists and analysts will be watching a week full of reports with economic data coming out every day this week. Click inside for a calendar.

Week of April 22, 2002
Sunday, April 21, 2002
Wall Street moves full swing into the second big week of earnings and they will continue to steal the spotlight from the economic reports. However, analysts will probably be watching the Wednesday home sales #s and the Fed's Beige Book report, plus the Employment Cost index on Thursday.

Week of April 15, 2002
Sunday, April 14, 2002
Earnings, earnings and more earnings. The Q1 numbers are coming in full bore this week and aside from the turmoil in the Mid East these reports will take center stage. Economic reports that Wall Street will be watching are largely scheduled for Tuesday.

Week of April 08, 2002
Sunday, April 07, 2002
Earnings will begin to take center stage again as Wall Street eagerly or maybe apprehensively awaits the Q1 numbers. There may be a few more pre-announcements for those companies announcing later in the cycle but they should subside. Finally, this coming Friday is full of major economic reports with the PPI, Retails Sales and the Sentiment for April.

Week of April 01, 2002
Friday, March 29, 2002
As the market continues to focus on signs for an expanding economy, reports like Monday's Construction Spending and Tuesday's Factory Orders will play a roll next week. The auto and truck sales will be interesting to note but investors will probably be listening for any pre-earnings announcements now that the quarter is over. Earnings start up again in two to three weeks.

Week of March 25, 2002
Sunday, March 24, 2002
We have a number of economic reports out this week and with all the press on the home builders lately Wall Street will be watching the Existing Home sales on Monday and the New Home sales on Wednesday. The broader market will be focused on the durable orders and consumer confidence this Tuesday as well as the host of reports this Thursday.

Week of March 18, 2002
Sunday, March 17, 2002
As the markets march into the last two weeks of the month and the end of the first quarter a lot of eyeballs on Wall Street will be watching the CPI numbers on Friday. However, the beginning of the week will hold investor attention with the Tuesday FOMC meeting.

Week of March 11, 2002
Sunday, March 10, 2002
As steam continues to build for the "economy is rebounding" engine, eyes across the country will be focused on the PPI report this Friday and the Business Inventories report on Thursday. However, don't forget to keep your ears open for the Michigan Consumer Sentiment report at the end of the week.

Week of March 04, 2002
Sunday, March 03, 2002
The week ahead of us still has a number of economic reports but none as market moving as last week's. Economists will be interested in the Factory Orders and the Fed's Beige book on Weds. plus the Unemployment number and the Avg. workweek and hourly earnings on Friday.

Week of February 25, 2002
Sunday, February 24, 2002
We have a full week of economic reports this week, which may help turn investor sentiment around. Although last week's positive reports did little to lift investor confidence. This week the Consumer confidence numbers on Tuesday, the GDP numbers for Q4 on Thursday, and the personal spending and income numbers on Friday will be in the spotlight.

Week of February 18, 2002
Sunday, February 17, 2002
Earnings continue to pour in but investor focus has soured as accounting concerns are popping up in the likes of IBM while more Enron exposure hits TV during the day. The big economic report this week is the CPI. Don't forget that markets are closed on Monday.

Week of February 11, 2002
Sunday, February 10, 2002
We still have a full week of earnings ahead of us but they are starting to wind down. There is also a number of stock splits over the next couple of weeks. The major economic reports that analysts will be following are the retail sales numbers on Wednesday and the PPI report at the end of the week.

Week of February 04, 2002
Sunday, February 03, 2002
Most of the major economic reports came out last week, along with the FOMC meeting where Wall Street had expected no rate change. Positive indications may offer investors hope despite the weight of the Enron collapse still on the markets. Earnings season is still in full bloom.

Week of January 28, 2002
Sunday, January 27, 2002
Investors face the last week of January with another wave of earnings reports. We have listed some of the larger companies that will be announcing this week. In addition to earnings, Wall Street will also be listening to the FOMC during its 2-da meeting on Tues/Wednesday and analysts will be looking hard at the ECI report on Thursday morning.

Week of January 21, 2002
Sunday, January 20, 2002
As the second major week of the 4Q earnings season begins, investors are still trying to digest the earnings numbers and 2002 guidance from the big cap companies that announced last week. Using this week as a guide, we're likely to see big one day moves fueled by earnings victories one day and earnings disasters the next. Trade cautiously!

Week of January 14, 2002
Sunday, January 13, 2002
Earnings season will come into full bloom on Tuesday with the likes of Intel for the chip sector and Microsoft on Thursday for the software sector. There are hundreds of other big name companies that will be reporting but analysts will still be watching the retail sales numbers on Tuesday and the CPI report on Wednesday.

Week of January 07, 2002
Sunday, January 06, 2002
Earnings season is just around the corner and the calendar this week already shows the stream of releases are starting to pick up. The time for warnings has effectively passed but investors will still be wary and negative news will probably be punished severely. Actual numbers are supposed to be pretty disappointing but Wall Street seems optimistic and willing to look ahead to the second half of the year. Analysts and pundits will be watching for the PPI report on Friday.

Week of December 31, 2001
Sunday, December 30, 2001
On Wednesday, the 1Q of 2002 will begin and everyone's attention will return to the economy and its expected recovery. Many analyst believe it will get worse before it gets better. Thus the next three months may not be very encouraging. Keep your eyes on the employment reports and the jobs data that comes out over the next two weeks. Of course we'll probably begin to hear more earnings warnings if they haven't already been announced yet. The 4Q earnings announcements will begin in a week or two.

Week of December 24, 2001
Sunday, December 23, 2001
Christmas week tends to be an up week, historically for the markets. However, we have yet to really see any tax loss selling this December but current market sentiment doesn't seem to think it will show up and ruin the mood. If anyone is still paying attention during the holidays they'll probably be watching the Consumer Confidence and Home Sales numbers on Friday.

Week of December 17, 2001
Sunday, December 16, 2001
These days it seems like every economic report is either the harbinger of doom or the angel of light on the coming recovery. Wall Street will be watching the housing starts on Monday as well as the Personal Income and Spending reports on Friday. Don't forget that we still haven't seen much December tax-loss selling which could show up this week.

Week of December 10, 2001
Sunday, December 09, 2001
Last Friday's employment number was the big economic report that the Fed was waiting for. The Fed meets next week, on Tuesday, and is expected to cut rates again. In addition to the Fed's official announcement on interest rates, traders will focus on the November retail sales numbers on Thursday and the wholesale inflation figures. Retail inflation figures will be released on Friday.

Week of December 03, 2001
Sunday, December 02, 2001
There may be a number of economic reports out this week but Wall Street will probably spend much of its time betting, talking, and arguing over the Fed's decision at the FOMC meeting on Dec. 11th. Earnings have dwindled to a handful of companies but we approach that wonderful time of year called "warnings season" which always precedes earnings season. There may be a few corporations that surprise investors early in December.

Week of November 26, 2001
Sunday, November 25, 2001

Sunday, November 11, 2001
November is in full swing and investors are hoping that an end of year fourth quarter rally won't be derailed by the record number of earnings warnings we've already received about the end of 2001.

The market will be watching the Retail sales number on Wednesday and the CPI numbers on Friday.
