13:36 EDTCSCOOn The Fly: Technical notes on earnings season calendar effects
The doldrums have persisted without a great deal of index volatility heading into Q2 earnings season. Until we are into the bulk of the season, we aren't likely to have sufficient catalysts to move far, barring an exogenous event. What traders need to be aware of is how compressed this earnings season really is. The increased flow of earnings news within a shorter span could lead to some bigger moves. How short? The old school way of determining the bounds of earnings season starts with Alcoa (AA) and ends with Cisco (CSCO). This time around, Alcoa is on July 8 and Cisco is on August 12, putting the season at just over a month in calendar time. Contrast this with Q4 earnings season, which can take nearly seven weeks in some cases. Another factor to be aware of: in the first week of earnings this season, there are just a relative handful of S&P 500 names reporting. By the time Cisco reports, the bulk will be done. We really are looking at more like a three week window. If the direction of earnings surprises are consistent, the market might see its first real push up or down that breaks the tight range with solid momentum. If not, market watchers are likely to see a spate of volatility in a market that has become used to flatter conditions, where volatility has been better for a sale. Choppy earnings could make that strategy more problematic. Planning out ahead is critically important too, as the day of the week can matter. Wednesdays and Thursdays tend to be the peak days for reports, making them more subject to market gyrations. Friday afternoons tend to be a day in which companies with genuinely bad news try to sneak it out. Use the forthcoming holiday wisely; we may be in for a bumpier ride ahead.
