The Olympics are over… but on markets, things are about to “heat up”….

Good Morning,


A banana thrown at Eddie Betts… The IOC apologies to the 10 athletes who were thrown in a Brazilian jail… The Aussie team’s “hit & misses”….


Yes…. Monday is here again…..


And boy, if we thought last week was “busy”, just have a look at what we have in store….


In the Markets

Markets right now appear to be “lacking a catalyst”……..


In the US, earnings were “above average”, however this is a result of analyst expectations coming off a low base….


So far, there have been some highlights in the AUS reporting season and the recent $300M+ asset sale of Ardent’s (AAD) gyms, should provide further reiterating for the stock.


WOW is also expected to write down > $1 billion due to its “Masters debacle”, however, as investors are “forward-looking”, we see upsides in the near-term.


FMG, BSL & UGL will be the key focus this morning, with the likes of AMC, CBA, ILU, HVN and QANreporting their FY results over coming days…


The SPI is down 6 points this morning
