Another Great Week Coming Up!

by Ian Harvey

September 22, 2018


A Quick Review of Last Week’s Market…..

The Dow ended the week at an all-time high, and so far stocks look set to close out the month of September with a gain.

For the week, the Dow finished up 2.3% at 26,743.50.

The S&P 500 was also up 0.8 percent at 2,929.67.

But, the Nasdaq Composite went in the opposite direction; finishing the week down 3.2% to settle at 7,986.96.

Moving Ahead…..

The Fed is expected to announce a quarter point rate hike Wednesday, but is unlikely to cause too much tension for the market; as well expect a signal that another hike is coming later in the year.

The main area of concern will be the focus on trade, and as the next round of U.S. tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods and China's retaliatory tariffs both go into effect Monday.

Also, the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, with a deadline of October 1, will be watched by investors for any developments.

Expect the stock market to continue its upward trajectory for the next few months…..read the article “The Stock Market Is Expected To Continue Higher!

Tuesday, September 25

The electronic products solutions company, Jabil Inc. (NYSE:JBL), providing engineering, manufacturing and intelligent supply chain solutions to companies in a variety of industries - automotive, packaging, healthcare, retail and more, will report earnings before the market opens.

Revenues are expected to be $5.40 billion, up 7.6% from the year-ago quarter.

When To Exit A Trade Based On Earnings?.....

It is also worth considering, when options trading earnings reports – “Do we exit on already existing profits or leave the companies to report their earnings and hope for bigger profit?” 

As most traders realize, there is a 50/50 chance that the company stock price could go either way after reporting earnings – even if the report is good, the stock price could reverse – and if you hold a call option, means depletion of an already good profit if it exists. A similar situation can be found if you hold a put option, and a report is not that sound (and you expect a profit from this) but the stock price can, at times move upwards due to traders bias or other external conditions......READ MORE.....
