FactSet StreetAccount Summary - US Week Ahead: May 4-8

May 4, 2015

Snapshot:

First quarter earnings season begins to down shift though overall volume remains high - highlights include a focus on media and cable/telecom as well as the first big April-quarter report with NVDA on Thursday. Non-earnings activity on the corporate docket includes a step up in analyst meetings, with particular focus likely placed on MCD's strategic update on Monday. A relatively quiet economic week sees factory orders and ISM Non-Manufacturing data to kick off the week, with the April jobs report also expected to garner investor attention on Friday; in Europe, a host of Services PMI and Industrial Production data will be released; with PMI and export data also expected from China.
