The Week Ahead: $AA, $FDO, $CVX, $COST, $WFC

Earnings season starts this week, though it’s quite light, with AA reporting on Tuesday after the close, FDO on Thursday before the open, and WFC on Friday before the open.  The economic calendar is quite light as well after last week’s barrage of reports.  The FOMC minutes on Wednesday will be the most closely watched release, especially with regards to potential timing for a rate hike in 2015.

Outside of the U.S., CPI reports come out in Europe on July 10th and 11th (a closely watched measure for the ECB), and in China on July 8th.  Australian employment data comes out on Wednesday, and Canadian employment data will be released on Friday.  Outside of that, the semifinals of the World Cup are on Tuesday (Brazil – Germany) and Wednesday (Argentina – Netherlands), and the final is on Sunday.
