Events Next Week The U.S. equity, bond and commodities markets will all be closed on Monday in observance of Independence Day, which falls on Sunday. Most other international markets are open for trading. While a new earnings reporting season will begin mid-month, there are still a few companies that need to report last quarter's results, including WD-40 and Levi-Strauss.
It will be also be the first week in Amazon.com's history that Jeff Bezos will not be at the helm of the company he founded as he steps into the Executive Chairman role, and Andy Passy takes over as CEO.
Economic Reports On Sunday evening China's Caixin Services PMI will be released for the month of June, and it should offer more details on the pace of the economic recovery in that country. Growth has been slowing from its torrid pace earlier in the year, so Sunday's report may confirm what we witnessed in May.
On Monday we'll get a similar report for the European Union with the release of the Markit Services PMI for the area. A recent increase in COVID-19 cases has prompted some countries to close their borders again, which will impact tourism just as the summer season begins. We'll look for clues on how big that impact might be if the rise in cases persists.
On Tuesday, we'll also get the Markit Services and Composite PMI for the U.S. for the month of June. Purchasing managers have been fairly confident about the U.S. recovery all Spring, so we'll see if that continued. We know we are in the part of the recovery where spending has shifted from goods to services, so this will be the first report to show the impact of that.
Job Turnover On Wednesday the Labor Dept. will release the JOLTS report for May. We've been paying a lot of attention to the Job Openings and Turnover survey lately because of the labor shortage here in the U.S. Companies of all sizes say they can't find enough workers to meet demand, and many employees are quitting their jobs in search of better pay and benefits, or choosing to stay out of the workforce entirely.
