Earnings calendar for the week of December 28

Reports of mutant versions of coronavirus spreading in Europe and resurgence of infections across the world have dampened market sentiment, at a time when the economy seemed to be limping back to normalcy.

Adding to the concerns, latest data showed that consumer spending dropped more than expected last month. In a sign that labor market conditions are yet to improve, jobless claims remained elevated last week though there was a sequential decline, even as the government prepares to extend the federal pandemic aid programs under the new stimulus.

In a week shortened by the holiday, major indexes bounced back from last week’s lows but remained volatile. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added more than 300 points since the first trading day of the week, while the S&P 500 closed the last session at 3690.01, up 1.3%. The markets closed early on Thursday, ahead of Christmas day.

Meanwhile, there was caution among investors after the Chinese government ordered antitrust investigation against Alibaba, the region’s largest online marketplace, as part of the efforts to check monopoly in the country’s busy cyberspace. Elsewhere, shares of Tesla ended a long-drawn rally and fell from the record highs this week, coinciding with Apple’s announcement about its new electric car.

Used car dealer CarMax and PayChex released their quarterly reports this week. As usual, not many earnings are scheduled in the final week of the year.
