Earnings calendar for the week of August 9

A fresh wave of optimism swept through markets towards the end of the week after the latest employment data showed the economy added nearly one million new jobs last month and the jobless rate dropped to a new low.

Leading stock indexes extended last week’s rally and set new records. The S&P 500 index added around 20 points during the week, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average stayed above the 35,000-mark.

Earlier, professional services provider Accenture expanded its portfolio further by adding IT consulting firm LEXTA to its fold. Meanwhile, the bidding war for Veoneer reached the next level after chipmaker Qualcomm offered a whopping $4.6 billion for the Swedish auto parts company, outbidding closest contender Magna International.

Foot Locker expanded its foothold in the Asia-Pacific and North America with the acquisition of Atmos brand owner Text Trading Company and footwear retailer Eurostar, respectively. In another deal involving leading apparel brands, Levi Strauss agreed to acquire the active-wear brand Beyond Yoga.

Thriving on the sharp increase in online content consumption, thanks to the virus-induced shutdown, Take-Two Interactive, Activision Blizzard, and Electronic Arts reported robust second-quarter numbers early in the week – the first two game publishers on Monday and Tuesday respectively and the third one on Wednesday.

As usual, Chinese eCommerce giant Alibaba made an impressive show, posting stronger-than-expected results on Tuesday. It was joined by sportswear maker Under Armour in the pre-market.

The main events that elicited investor interest on Wednesday were the quarterly releases of CVS Health, General Motors, and streaming platform Roku. Dropbox, Virgin Galactic, and Beyond Meat unveiled their second-quarter data on Thursday.

The second-quarter earnings release of AMC Entertainment, which created a buzz recently after the stock price shot up in a social media-driven buying spree, is due on August 9. The financial reports of Tyson Foods and software firm Trade Desk are on tap before the opening bell. The next day, Chesapeake Energy Corp. and cybersecurity firm McAfee will be reporting after the market’s close.

Vacation rental company Airbnb and Chinese tech firm Baidu are probably the only other major companies to report earnings in the relatively quiet week.
