The Past May Not be Prologue: Earnings Forecasts Key to the Rest of 2021

July 06, 2021

Editor’s note: Any and all references to timeframes longer than one trading day are for purposes of market context only, and not recommendations of any holding timeframe. Daily rebalancing ETFs are not meant to be held unmonitored for long periods. If you don’t have the resources, time or inclination to constantly monitor and manage your positions, leveraged ETFs are not for you.

Stocks closed out Q2 at a high water mark. The S&P 500 is up 14% through June 30th as the Dow Jones Industrial Average has climbed 13%. Both have been powered by an economic recovery that many investors believe is still gaining ground.

But while the mood should be ecstatic, considering the state of the world just 12 months ago, investors and traders are focused on the second half of 2021. While the market may be priced to perfection based on current earnings, it’s projections for future earnings that will be most anticipated this time around. That’s because U.S. businesses are at a critical moment coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many analysts expect Q2 earnings to be the peak of the recovery.

The next few months may be difficult for traders looking for stocks to break out of the tight range we’ve seen since late spring, unless companies show significant surprise to the upside in their future guidance for Q3 and beyond.

Below is a calendar with reporting dates organized by index, along with links to the related 2X or 3X Leveraged ETFs, for traders who have a bold opinion on what's in store for the rest of the summer. Happy trading!
