The Week Ahead in the Stock Market – October 22, 2012

Stocks suffered worse-than-expected quarterly results last week, but the damage may be limited as Wall Street was already expecting a nasty earnings season.

Taking some of the focus away from earnings in the week ahead will be the Federal Reserve's policy meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday. After last month's meeting, the Fed announced its third round of aggressive economic stimulus, causing stocks to rally despite a slew of earnings warnings.

U.S. economic indicators to watch in the week ahead will include new home sales for September on Wednesday and durable goods orders for September on Thursday, followed by the first look at third-quarter GDP on Friday, as well as the final reading for October on consumer sentiment from the Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan surveys.

Also the information required in regard to earnings, economic data, ETFs is also included.

The Economy and Earnings in the Week Ahead – October 22, 2012

In the week ahead, more than 150 of the S&P 500 are reporting, including Apple, Caterpillar, Boeing, Amazon.com, Merck, and AT&T. Earnings news will dominate, but there is also a two-day Fed meeting; the final presidential debate Monday, and important economic reports that include housing data and the first look at third-quarter GDP.
