This week we’ll have earnings from some huge companies – including Apple and Tesla – giving investors a chance to see if growing profits can justify the current prices being paid for stocks. But even so, it’s likely the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting on Wednesday will overshadow everything, as markets seek clarity on how hard and fast the US central bank plans to raise interest rates. And of course we’ll also be keeping one eye on Russia’s troop buildup on the border with Ukraine. Here are the top events we’ll be watching:
Tuesday Ifo index of German business confidence published. Earnings from Microsoft, General Electric, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, Atlas Copco, and Hyundai Motor Co.
Wednesday US Fed and Bank of Canada both announce interest rate decisions. Data on US home sales published. Earnings from Tesla, Boeing, Abbott Laboratories, Intel, and AT&T.
Thursday US economic growth and durable goods orders data released. German consumer confidence numbers published. Credo Technology starts trading in the US following its initial public offering (IPO). Earnings from Apple, LVMH, Samsung, SAP, Robinhood, Visa, Altria, and many others.
Friday US data on personal income and spending will be scoured for indications on where inflation is heading. Germany and France release economic growth numbers.
