Updates on major indices and market data
Angela Barnes hosts today's episode of "Beat the street" that gives viewers helpful information about trading before the stock market opens. Barnes talks about some upcoming events that traders should pay attention to. These include earnings reports from big companies like Coca-Cola, Cisco, Airbnb, and Lyft. There is also important economic data coming out, such as inflation figures, retail sales, and jobless claims.
Barnes starts by giving an overview of the current state of the stock market. The US 500 S&P is expected to have a slow start, while the Dow Jones is slightly up. The Nasdaq is also a little higher. Last week, the S&P 500 reached a milestone by surpassing 5,000 points for the first time ever. This was because of positive earnings reports and favorable inflation data. According to Axel Rudolph, a market analyst, the S&P 500 is likely to continue growing and may stabilise at these levels for a while.
Barnes goes on to talk about the important economic data that will be released throughout the week. On Tuesday, we will get to see the CPI data for January. On Wednesday, there will be US crude oil inventories. Thursday is a big day with US retail sales, initial jobless claims, and the Empire State Manufacturing index for February. Finally, on Friday, there will be the US producer price index for January and US consumer confidence data for February.

Coca-Cola is expected to show stronger sales and profit growth in the fourth quarter. Analysts predict a 10% increase in net income and a 7% rise in revenue. Airbnb is expected to report earnings of $0.69 per share and revenue of $2.16 billion. Lyft's revenue is also expected to go up by 3.6% compared to last year. The show ends by talking about the performance of commodities, like oil and gold.
