The Week Ahead – $ORCL, $FDX, $ADBE, $RHT

by Enis June 16, 2014 8:16 am • Commentary

The headliner this week is the FOMC update at 2:00 pm EST on Wednesday, and Janet Yellen’s press conference to follow shortly afterwards.  Certain Fed speakers have indicated a potential shift in the Federal Reserve’s focus over the last month, as they have spoken with interest about the fall in market volatility and rise in the stock market, and mentioned a potential rate hike sooner than the market expects.

Markets overall don’t expect the Fed to rock the boat, but Yellen’s press conference will be notable to see whether she shifts her tone.  Outside of the FOMC event, the macroeconomic calendar is light, with CPI and Housing Starts data on Tuesday, and Jobless Claims and the Philly Fed on Thursday.  The economic calendar in other regions is quiet as well.

As for single stocks, there are several notable earnings reports (ADBE, FDX, ORCL, and RHT), but generally quiet aside from those reports.
