facebook twitter linkedin

The week will wrap up today and feature nonfarm payrolls data, the unemployment rate, average hourly earnings, the labor force participation rate, and info on consumer credit. 

The following public company is slated to release corporate earnings today, March 4:

Hibbett Inc. (NASDAQ:HIBB -- $47.74) engages in the retail of athletic-inspired fashion products in small and mid-sized communities in the United States. Hibbett will report its Q4 earnings of 2021 before the open today.

Looking ahead to next week, it will be a relatively quiet week as far as economic data goes, with wholesale inventories and the foreign trade deficit out early on. All the action will happen at once on Thursday, with a new round of inflation data to digest, courtesy of the core consumer price index (CPI). Investors will also get a glimpse at the Federal Reserve's budget deficit, and latest quarter's domestic nonfinancial debt and household wealth numbers that day as well.  

There will only be a few corporate reports to sift through next week as earnings season settles, including those from Bumble (BMBL), Campbell Soup (CPB), CrowdStrike (CRWD), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), (JD), Oracle (ORCL), Petco Health and Wellness (WOOF), Poshmark (POSH), Stitch Fix (SFIX), Ulta Beauty (ULTA), and Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM).

All economic dates listed here are tentative and subject to change.
