First-quarter earnings season winds down this week, but with more than a dozen S&P 500 companies left to report. Economists will be watching the latest Federal Reserve meeting minutes and data on consumer earnings and spending and business investment.
Advance Auto Parts and Zoom Video Communications will be Monday’s highlights, followed by AutoZone,
and Toll Brothers on Tuesday. Dick’s Sporting Goods,
and Snowflake report on Wednesday.
Thursday will be busy: Alibaba Group Holding, Costco Wholesale, Dell Technologies,
and Ulta Beauty all report.
There will also be several investor days and annual shareholders meetings this week, including from JPMorgan Chase on Monday and Chevron,
and United Airlines Holdings on Wednesday.
Economic-data releases this week will include May Manufacturing and Services Purchasing Managers’ indexes on Tuesday and the Census Bureau’s durable goods report on Wednesday. The Bureau of Economic Analysis’ personal income and spending data for April will be released on Friday.
Finally, minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee’s early-May monetary-policy meeting will be published on Wednesday. Officials increased the Fed’s benchmark interest rate target by half a percentage point at that meeting and unveiled plans to begin reducing the size of the central bank’s balance sheet.
Advance Auto Parts and Zoom Video Communications report quarterly results.
JPMorgan Chase hosts its 2022 investor day. Shares of the largest US bank are down 26% this year, underperforming the KBW Bank Index by six percentage points, in part due to concerns of increased spending without clear-cut benefits.

Ralph Lauren, and Toll Brothers announce earnings.
