Trading Radar: Revving Up the Earnings Engine

By

Strengthen your portfolio in good times and bad.

PrintPRINT
Next week promises to be action packed as traders will be watching for bond auctions (30-Yr and 10-Yr), economic releases (Retail Sales and CPI), and the official start to earnings season.

Alcoa (AA) will kick things off on Monday, followed by Intel (INTC) on Thursday and then JPMorgan (JPM) on Friday.

The report to keep your eye on will be JPMorgan's release on Friday morning. Citigroup recently came out and lowered its 4Q '09 estimates by $0.15 to $0.55 because they see lower FICC (Fixed Income, Currency, and Commodities) revenue. The consensus estimates for JPM stand at EPS of $0.63 on revenues $27.022 billion.
