Stock market investing can be like a chess game. Investors and traders have to think ahead about the market’s possible reaction to upcoming events.  In this spirit, let’s look at some of the events which could impact trading next week – August 12th through August 16th.

Monday:  It is a quiet macro day, but Sysco (SYY) releases its earnings and may provide some insight into demand trends in the restaurant sector.

Tuesday: July U.S. retail sales will be released and are expected to rise 0.3% m/m.   JP Morgan holds conference on the auto industry.

Wednesday:  The macro calendar is slow, but earnings from Deere (DE), Macy ‘s (M), Cisco (CSCO) and Network Appliances (NTAP) are to be reported.

Thursday:  July CPI is released and expected to rise 0.2% m/m.   The Empire and Philly manufacturing surveys are scheduled for publication.  The Empire survey is expected to rise marginally to 10.0, while the Philly survey is projected to fall 4.8 to 15.0.  The National Association of Homebuilders releases their monthly survey.  The trade is looking for no change at 57.   Kohl’s (KSS), Wal-Mart (WMT), Nordstrom (JWN), and Applied Materials (AMAT) report profits.

Friday:  July housing starts are expected to rise 74,000 to 910,000 units and permits are projected to increase 17,000 to 935,000 units.

Here is the RTI question:  Which event(s) do you think will be most important in shaping next week’s price action?
