Earnings calendar for the week of May 24

In a sign that economic recovery is picking up pace, weekly jobless claims dropped to a new pandemic low of around 444,000 this week. The market responded positively to the impressive jobs data. The S&P 500 index recovered from the mid-week sell-off and opened Friday’s session up 25 points. The Dow Jones Industrial Average bounced back and crossed the 34,000 mark once again, but remained below the recent peak.

Putting an end to speculation, AT&T and WarnerMedia signed a $43-billion pact to combine the latter’s entertainment and sports assets with the global leisure business of Discovery, in one of the largest deals in recent times that would create a new company.

In another tech deal, the cloud communications platform Twilio agreed to acquire Seattle-based messaging app Zipwhip for about $850 million. Continuing its acquisition spree, professional services firm Accenture bought management consultancy Homburg & Partner. The latest to join the M&A bandwagon was Snap, which is buying AR display maker WaveOptics for more than $500 million.

On the earnings front, the spotlight was on the retail sector this week – leading store chains Walmart, Macy’s and Home Depot reported on Tuesday, while Target Corporation on Wednesday posted earnings that more than doubled as the COVID-driven shopping boom continued.

From the tech space, Analog Devices and Cisco Systems released their quarterly reports on Wednesday. Earlier, game publisher Take-Two Interactive Software revealed that fourth-quarter results grew in double-digits on the strength of its iconic title Grand Theft Auto.

Having entered the new fiscal year on a positive note, Kohl’s Corp. Thursday said it turned to profit in the most recent quarter from a loss last year. The first-quarter earnings of  Foot Locker, which reported on Friday, was the other important announcement.

With the market approaching the fag end of the season, tech firms will be dominating next week. Among the closely-followed events, quarterly announcements of IT major Hewlett Packard Enterprise and remote conferencing platform Zoom Video Communications are due on June 1 after the market’s close.
