A Quiet Week Ahead on the Investing Calendar

Share this article

A closer look at what investors can expect from the upcoming week.

Description: A graph showing the movement of financial markets over the course of a week -- It's set to be a much quieter week on the economic calendar, but there's still plenty for markets to mull over after last week's stellar performance. This week will bring a slew of earnings reports; however, the economic data schedule is rather sparse. Investors will be looking to the corporate earnings reports to direct the markets, while keeping an eye out for any potential surprises that could impact the market.

The first big event of the week will be the release of the U.S. Treasury's budget statement on Monday. The statement is expected to show an increase in deficit spending, as the government continues to pump money into the economy to stimulate growth. The release of the budget statement could help to set the tone for the markets for the rest of the week, so Investors should pay close attention.

On Tuesday, Investors will be keeping an eye on the release of the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI). This index is used to measure inflation and is an important metric for the markets. A higher than expected CPI reading could signal a potential increase in inflation, which could affect the markets.

The rest of the week will be largely focused on corporate earnings reports. Peabody Energy (NYSE: BTU), IPG Photonics (NASDAQ: IPGP), Globalfoundries (NASDAQ: GFS), Franklin Electric (NASDAQ: FELE), Geo (NYSE: GEO), NetSol (NASDAQ: NTWK), Ecolab (NYSE: ECL) and PerkinElmer (NYSE: PKI) are all scheduled to report earnings this week. Investors will be keeping a close eye on these reports as they could provide insight into the health of the economy and how companies are responding to the current environment.

In addition to the earnings reports, Investors will also likely be keeping an eye on any news related to stimulus. The Trump administration has been pushing for additional stimulus to be passed, and any news about progress on that front could have an effect on the markets.

Overall, it should be a quiet week on the economic calendar, but Investors should still be on the lookout for any potential surprises. While earnings reports will likely drive the market this week, any news about stimulus or other economic data could have an impact as well.
