Wednesday Morning – IEA, More Catalysts, FANG

Print Friendly

.

.

Market Sentiment Watch: Another day with not a lot of impactful economic data. Yesterday's rally in crude, itself prompted by an increasingly bullish OPEC forecast, sent oil higher and many of our names to 2016 highs. The OPEC numbers were largely as expected here and this is the kind of action we have been looking in advance of the 2Q16 reporting season which we expect to be more positive in tone if largely discounted by the time it arrives from a near term standpoint.  In today's post please find another set of Catalyst List updates, comments on the STEO, comments on the IEA monthly, comments on FANG (comments here bode well for a number of others as noted below), and some other odds and ends. 

Ecodata Watch:

  • We get the Import Price Index at 8:30 am EST (no forecast, last read was 1.4%), 
  • We get the Beige Book at 2 pm EST.
