Guess Who’s Again?
Again once more?
Nice Stuff’s again — inform a good friend. Severely, you’re not hogging this Stuff all by yourself, proper?
I do know, it was solely a weekend, nevertheless it’s felt like perpetually since we’ve caught up available on the market goodness, Nice Ones. Additionally, if you wish to know a secret … I’m not Joe, aka Mr. Nice Stuff. Gasp!
The anonymous and faceless Nice Stuff crew is on deck this week, not behind the scenes. Joe determined to relish within the summertime sunshine (lol, as if) and head out for trip. Stunning, isn’t it? Even Mr. Nice Stuff himself has to recharge his greatness batteries someday … or one thing like that.
You really hear from us much more than you assume. So, relaxation assured: Your dream meme crew continues to be at Nice Stuff HQ, holding down the fort right here. However suffice it to say, we’re maintaining issues fast and soiled at present … and most of this week. Simply the way in which y’all Nice Ones dig … you dig?
Now, you realize who else is again (again once more)? Earnings season! The time for company revenues and earnings to shine is nigh. This week’s slate of reviews packs some heavy hitters from throughout the market, and issues are solely getting hotter all through the remainder of July.
Right here’s the week forward in earnings, courtesy of the cool cats over at EarningsWhispers on Twitter:
It’s financial institution week … oh boy. The truth is, this week’s earnings lineup is nearly a mirror picture of the primary week of final earnings season. (Go try April 12’s earnings, play spot the distinction and get again to me.)
The who’s-who of the banking milieu will strut their stuff all this week, from the institutional massive wigs like BlackRock (NYSE: BLK) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) to the banking sector’s comparatively small fry, like First Republic Financial institution (NYSE: FRC) and PNC Monetary Companies (NYSE: PNC).
So, what are we in search of right here? With the financial institution brigade, it’s all about outlook and steering this time round. I wish to know what financial headwinds the banks see for the remainder of the yr, going into subsequent yr. Certain, final quarter’s monetary deets are welcome … however the banks often have as a lot to say as a post-game sports activities information convention.
Sure, in our final quarter, we uhh traded lots … made tons of dough. ‘Twas good. Subsequent quarter? Yeah, we’re in all probability going to do it once more … try to earn more money.
Fascinating as at all times. Anyway, I’m primarily watching to see which banks discuss up their inflation/deflation/reflation issues. You’ll wish to watch which banks are really involved about one thing … and that are simply going with this system.
Whereas we’ve not talked about Cintas (Nasdaq: CTAS) a lot in these right here digital pages, it’s positively on the watchlist for the week. With Cintas’s position in outfitting and supplying each small and enormous companies with uniforms, security merchandise and cleansing provides, you’d assume that the Nice Reopening™ could be a boon to the corporate, what with enterprise homeowners hiring extra workers (or making an attempt to).
However simply how a lot hiring, supplying and perspiring really made it to the corporate’s backside line is for Cintas to inform.
It’s been a tough few quarters (years?) for pot shares, which is why I eagerly await listening to from Organigram (Nasdaq: OGI) tomorrow. Organigram virtually at all times surprises analysts each time it hotboxes the earnings confessional, simply … by no means in a constructive manner.
Simply as soon as, I wish to hear a pot inventory that had blowout earnings or income development or elevated its market share — one thing uplifting from the hashish sector. “We’ll knock ‘em out subsequent quarter!” is nearly the pot inventory anthem by this level.
Final however positively not least is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (NYSE: TSM). On the subject of the dang chip scarcity that everybody’s in all probability going accountable within the coming weeks, TSM is the corporate you wish to take note of — this actually is the chipmaker’s chipmaker.
However above all, regardless of the sector, we’ll nonetheless must understand that year-over-year comparisons are wonky proper now with the pandemic … and Wall Avenue’s amped-up expectations for storming restoration development in shares may already be priced in.

Some Individuals Name Me The Area Cowboy
Some folks name me Branson, ‘trigger I communicate of the pompatus of affection. Wait, that’s not proper in any respect, grasp on a sec… Branson is the house cowboy, apparently. The dude took his protein capsules, put his helmet on and went to house yesterday, leaving all us Earth-bound peons behind.
The Virgin Galactic (Nasdaq: SPCE) CEO beat Bezos within the race to the nice past, and identical to with each different ballyhoo-fueled occasion for investor optics, Virgin inventory initially took off like a billionaire’s rocket.
That’s … till Virgin introduced at present that it’s going to make the most of its rally over the previous two months to, you guessed it, promote extra inventory! As much as $500 million value, all advised. Whereas Branson relishes in his house oddity fantasy, SPCE inventory fell again right down to Earth at present, crashing 15%. I assume no public-relations hype bender is full with out the hangover of shock share dilution.

A Fowl Beast Certainly
There’s hardly this a lot commotion within the rooster market. Proper after we advised you about Past Meat’s disturbing plans for imitation rooster domination on Friday … my urge for food was dashed even additional. Tyson Meals (NYSE: TSN) introduced a significant frozen rooster recall on account of a listeria outbreak. Tyson says as much as 9 million kilos of rooster could also be susceptible to contamination.
Because the probably problematic poultry was produced from December 26, 2020, to April 13 of this yr, there’s an excellent likelihood many grocery consumers (and establishments like eating places, faculties, hospitals and army bases) have already got tainted rooster of their freezers.
This is likely to be an excellent likelihood to remind you to, you realize, go test your freezer. (Let me know in case your fridge is working, too…) Listed here are the Tyson merchandise to search for. Tyson inventory is down about 2% at present as everybody hunts down the contaminated rooster. And whereas the fallout could also be short-lived for TSN shares … I actually don’t need any of y’all catching the listeria cooties.
Darkish Instances In SolarCity
Monday morning courtroom appearances? Not a fan…
Elon Musk is up on the witness stand at present relating to Tesla’s (Nasdaq: TSLA) buyout of SolarCity in 2016. Properly, Musk calls it a “buyout” — the plaintiffs would fairly name it a “bailout.” SolarCity was based by Musk’s cousins, and the Tesla CEO owned a 22% stake within the firm till Tesla dropped $2.6 billion to amass the photo voltaic panel maker.
In response to Elon: “Because it was a stock-for-stock transaction and I owned virtually precisely the identical share of each there was no monetary acquire.” Tesla shareholders mentioned “nay nay” and sued, alleging that Elon used Tesla’s coffers to bail out his household’s firm. Now, if Elon Musk doesn’t persuade the trial’s decide that the deal was honest to Tesla shareholders, he might personally must pay again the billions that Tesla spent on the deal.
I personally received’t speculate a method or one other till Elon Musk has his day in courtroom … however actually? Are folks shocked by the notion that nepotism is alive and effectively within the public markets? That’s the extra shocking story right here.
Anyway, what do you consider Tesla’s SolarCity buyout? Do you’ve robust opinions on *shuffles deck of playing cards* rooster contamination? And the way about that entire “earnings season” shebang?
