It’s earnings season, and with anywhere from a few hundred to more than a 1,000 companies reporting their results, this certainly makes for a volatile time with investors shooting first as results hit the tape and asking questions over the quality of those earnings later.
As we navigate the maze of earnings reports to be had in the coming days, we’ll continue to refine our thematic shopping list and look to pounce on opportunities that offer a compelling risk to reward trade off.
In this week’s edition of Tematica Investing:
- Wading deeper into March quarter earnings finds growth expectations are not living up to expectations. As we’ve said before, it sometimes takes time for the market to react to the fundamentals, but the fundamentals eventually catch up with expectations.
- While we expect no-action from the Fed’s FOMC meeting later today, expect Wall Street to parse the commentary on the economy and inflation to determine the Fed’s next course of action.
- Earnings reports for companies on the Tematica Select List are starting to trickle in, and we see no reason to alter our position in AT&T (T) or American Capital Agency (AGNC) shares at this time.
Checking in on Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) shares, we find more patience is required before pulling the gun on this Food with Integrity contender.
- We’ve got the latest thematic supporting data points that ripped from the headlines around us.
Finally, we’re re-introducing an old feature called “What We’re Enjoying” and this week it’s the new Echo Dot from Amazon.
