Asos

Earnings season comes around once again as investors turn to the latest figures issued from top firms worldwide with dozens of high-profile results expected after the big U.S. banks got things underway last week. Fashion retailer Asos has firmly found its place as its full-year figures will provide more clues on its next steps. It is expected to release its results on Tuesday 17th October. Any earnings missed or a cautious outlook could prompt a period of heightened volatility especially after recent substantial investments, such as a second distribution hub in Europe, and a variety of website and logistic improvements.

 

Netflix

Streaming video provider Netflix will report its third-quarter results on October 16. The company will announce its quarterly results after the market close on October 16, with the consensus calling for earnings of $0.32 per share. During the same period last year, the company earned $0.12 per share, and the stock has appreciated 55.4% on the year. Shares of Netflix have gained 57.5% year to date, significantly outperforming the industry’s 12.6% rally, driven by substantial subscriber growth.

 

InterContinental Hotels Group

IHG is scheduled to release its number on Friday 20th October. The slowdown in InterContinental Hotels’ key American market will dominate the Holiday Inn owner’s update. The deceleration is offsetting the company’s better performance in Europe and China but Vicki Stern, Barclays’ analyst, believes that management’s US commentary will be more favourable for the third quarter with stronger industry data helped by both the solar eclipse and hurricane season.

 

Still to come this week

Some of the headliners for the week ahead are expected to include Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, IBM, United Healthcare, American Express, United Airlines, Yahoo Finance’s parent company Verizon, Travelers, General Electric (GE), and Procter & Gamble. The economic calendar will be a bit quieter, with a few points of housing market data, industrial production, and the Federal Reserve’s latest Beige Book report all set to make headlines.
