Earnings calendar for the week of December 14

Dow Jones Industrial Average retreated from the 30,000-mark mid-week as the impasse over the stimulus bill continued and jobless claims climbed to a three-month high.

The S&P 500 index shed more than 40 points since Wednesday amid concerns over the resurgence in COVID cases and new restrictions. Currently, it is expected that a consensus on the federal and state stimuli would be reached before year-end.

Continuing the regulatory scrutiny that started a few years ago, the Federal Trade Commission this week filed a lawsuit against Facebook and proposed the breakup of Mark Zuckerberg’s social media empire. If the agency has its way, then Facebook would have to spin off Instagram and WhatsApp. 

After a modest start, the earnings scene gathered steam towards the end of the week, with tech firms Adobe, Oracle and Broadcom publishing their latest quarterly numbers on Thursday. A day earlier, Campbell Soup Company reported a double-digit increase in its first quarter earnings.

With the holidays around the corner, there are only a few companies reporting next week. Professional services firm Accenture and grocery store chain General Mills are scheduled to release earnings early Thursday. On the same day, FedEx will report second-quarter results after the market’s close.
