Market Multiple Table: February Update

What’s in Today’s Report:

  • Market Multiple Table: February Update
  • EIA Analysis and Oil Update

Futures are enjoying a moderate bounce overnight thanks to slightly better than expected inflation data and earnings.

German CPI rose less than expected (8.7% vs. (E) 9.1%) and that’s helping to slightly calm fears of a bounce back in inflation.

Earnings overnight were also solid as DIS beat estimates and it’s fair to say this earnings season has been not as bad as feared.

Focus will remain on economic data and the only notable report today is Jobless Claims (E: 190K).  Holiday effects should be working their way out of these numbers so investors will want to see claims begin to rise over the coming weeks, otherwise it’ll imply the labor market remains much, much too tight (and that means more potential future rate hikes).

Earnings season is winding down but some notable reports today include: PM ($1.29), PYPL ($1.20), LYFT ($0.13).
