Week Ahead Brings Earnings Season, Amazon Prime Day, Apple Event

Key Takeaways:

  • Broken record time as stimulus hopes continue to provide early market support
  • Earnings season gets underway tomorrow with big banks beginning to report
  • Big week for FAANGs as Amazon
    AMZN
    Prime Day, Apple
    AAPL
    event coming up

If Wall Street had a seat belt sign, now’s when the captain would tell us to buckle up for possible turbulence ahead.

Even if earnings season didn’t begin tomorrow, there’s plenty to keep investors on their toes. Amazon’s (AMZN) Prime Day, Apple’s (AAPL) long-awaited product event, continued stimulus negotiations in Washington, and mounting virus cases in the U.S. and Europe all get mixed into the recipe.

Ordinarily, those ingredients would be enough for anyone, but this time it’s happening while investors and the entire world have one eye on polls three weeks ahead of the U.S. presidential election. Despite all this, volatility is the lowest since late

Amazon’s Prime Day Sales Seen Sharply Exceeding 2019 Level

Online retailer Amazon’s annual Prime Day shopping extravaganza starts at midnight U.S. Eastern Oct. 13 and sales are expected to exceed those of last year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.

The Seattle tech provider and online retailer’s event, which runs two full days, could net $9.9 billion in total sales, eMarketer estimates. 

That figure is more than 38% above last year’s Prime Day. Amazon doesn’t release sales figures for the event, but researchers pegged last year’s sales at roughly $7.16 billion.

J.P. Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth more conservatively estimates Amazon will take in $7.5 billion of revenue from the event this year, up 42% from an estimated $5.3 billion in 2019. 

“The biggest difference this year is that Prime Day is running three months later than its typical mid-July timing. [And] as such Amazon is promoting the event as an early start to holiday shopping vs. Prime Day’s typical

The best Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals

The big day doesn’t kick off until tomorrow, but there are already Amazon Prime Day gaming laptop deals to be had. But, shhh, right now they’re not all actually on Amazon itself. You can check out our current selection of Amazon Prime Day deals  from the early offers on assorted goodies, but we’ve also seen some pretty impressive gaming laptop deals too.

You might be concerned that the new Nvidia RTX 3080 launch would instantly render the RTX 20-series obsolete, and while that’s almost true from a desktop GPU point of view, on the gaming laptop side it’s not so cut and dried. With the Nvidia RTX 20-series Super cards only launching this year I wouldn’t expect RTX 30-series mobile GPUs until well into 2021.

Yet there are certain to be discounted gaming laptops as last-gen processors from Intel get phased out ahead of the upcoming 11th Gen Intel Tiger
