The week ahead: July 6, 2020

As I mentioned last week, most Sunday evenings I review the market and examine charts on my watchlists. I thought this would be a great time to then also share what I’m reviewing. This format may change a bit as time goes on, but the basic idea is to share the key data, news, and articles I’m currently looking at for the upcoming week.

Here’s the weekly market summary for the week of July 6, 2020:

Key earnings

  • Paychex (PAYX), Levi Strauss (LEVI) on July 7
  • Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) on July 8
  • Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA), Helen of Troy (HELE) on July 9
  • Shaw Communications (SJR) on July 10

Data

  • June same-store sales reports are due from Costco (COST) on July 8.
