Earnings and Guidance Spark Big Swings In Some Stocks

The post-Fed rally in US markets appears to be running out of gas as yesterday’s small gains have essentially been erased this morning with US index futures trading flat to down 0.3%. Europe is having a better day so far with the Dax and FTSE both up about 0.3%.

Asia Pacific and China-sensitive markets are having a rough day heading into tonight’s China trade numbers. The Hang Seng lost 0.9% and the Nikkei is down 1.6% on the equity side. On the commodity side, Copper is down 1.4% and US Crude Oil is down 1.2%. A small surprise build in weekly API US oil inventories appears to be weighing on Texas Tea as well heading toward today’s 10:30 am EDT US weekly DOE energy inventory reports.

Shopify is getting slammed in premarket trading this morning down 18.2% as investors focused more on disappointing guidance than an earnings beat.  Reddit is up 10.1% in premarket trading after the company posted a smaller than expected loss in its first quarterly report as a public company. Uber is down 7.1% premarket after the ride sharing company posted a surprise loss (-$0.32 vs street $0.22). AirBNB reports after the close today.

The economic calendar picks up over the next 24 hours. Today three Fed speakers may provide some clarity if the party line has shifted back to neutral-dovish in the wake of Fed Chair Powell’s comments last week or remains neutral-hawkish and if anyone can see stagflation… The Bank of England meets tomorrow.
