Threats and Opportunities This Week as Earnings Season Continues

by | Apr 18, 2022 | Market Updates

U.S. stock futures are down following last week’s inflation reports that showed sharply rising prices and higher bond yields — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.

The 10-year Treasury yield rose to 2.87%, a three-year high.

Most of the data this week pertains to the housing market — housing starts and permits, existing home sales and MBA mortgage applications. The housing market has been stable, but it remains to be seen how it’ll be affected by higher interest rates.

Bank of America, the last major bank to report earnings, came in above estimates with $0.80 per share profit on $23.33 billion in revenue.

Big companies set to report this week include Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA), Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE: PG) and United Airlines Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: UAL) as earnings season continues.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll discover the major earnings scheduled for Monday… key turning points for the major indices… which sectors are breaking out… how to trade volatility right now… an update on bonds and the impact of long bonds on stocks… plus the top sector and top stocks to watch right now.

P.S. There’s a Right Way and a Wrong Way to Trade Volatility

The secret to finding the strongest companies in the market right now is in what I call the “Super Stocks.”

Our biggest winners were selected by cutting all the dead weight out of the market, and then focusing only on the strongest names left standing.

That’s exactly what we do with my “Super Stocks” strategy.

And I have a special video on how this algorithmic strategy works…
