8:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

After what was considered a turn-around week the previous week, the major averages continued to make gains for most of last week.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Most of us are busy gambling on the most dangerous risk of all—living our whole life not doing what we want on the bet that we can buy the freedom to do it later. ”
– Jake Ducey


With no noteworthy developments on the U.S./China trade front, investors’ attention was redirected to the start of third-quarter earnings season, where the news was largely upbeat.

Throughout the week, we heard from key names such as American Express, United Health, JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Coca-Cola, Schlumberger, Ericsson, Honeywell, Philip Morris, Morgan Stanley, E*Trade, Bank of America, PNC Bank, IBM, and Netflix.

Netflix jumped more than +10% in after-hours trading. UnitedHealth Group was higher after beating forecasts, helping the health-care sector, while banks like reported better-than-expected numbers, and also signaled that the U.S. economy might not be heading for a recession after all.

Stocks were also buoyed after U.K. and European Union leaders announced a tentative agreement on Brexit.

Technically, things were looking good until Friday’s sell-off from the previous highs of late-September. The Dow Jones was also weighed down heavily that day by Boeing, IBM, and Johnson & Johnson which put more than a -200 drag on the index.

Meanwhile, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Richard Clarida said the economy is facing “evident” risks, while inflation remains muted.

The blue-chips did manage to close above the 27,000 line on Tuesday for the first time since they fell below there in late-September. However, they ended the week at 26,770, with a weekly loss of –46 points or –0.17%.
