The Week Ahead – $NKE, $MU, $WAG, $BBBY, $MON

It’s the last full week of the second quarter.  The economic calendar is relatively light in the U.S., with housing data the most abundant.  Existing home sales data is today and new home sales data as well as home price changes are tomorrow.  Durable goods orders, personal consumption, market PMI data, and revised 1st quarter GDP are released on Wednesday.  Personal income and personal spending are on Thursday, along with the PCE deflator inflation data.

Outside of the U.S., no major economic indicators or central bank meetings are slated for this week.  Volatility remains low, with corn the only asset among nearly 20 that has current implied volatility above the 52 week average.  Geopolitical events will likely garner most of the headlines.

Among single stocks, NKE’s earnings report on Thursday after the close is the headliner.  Other single names that report include MU, WAG, BBBY, and MON.
