Earnings Reports Update
This week marks the third-quarter earnings season, with more than 60 S&P 500 companies set to report. The housing market indicators are also on their radar as well as New Zealand’s CPI data and Australia’s Monetary Policy process meeting minutes; these items may have an effect on investor confidence moving forward into next year.
Before that, here are the released and expected earnings for this week.
Bank of America Corporation Earnings Report
Bank of America’s profit dropped 8% to $7.1 billion in the third quarter, but despite this decrease it still managed an impressive 81 cents per share thanks largely due its net interest margin which exceeded analysts expectations by 3%.
The bank’s revenue also grew over last year with 2461 million dollars on a non-GAAP basis. After adjusting certain expenses and other factors the Bank Of America may exceed investors expectations in the coming quarter.
The Federal Reserve’s recent run of interest rate hikes has been good news for banks like Bank Of America who benefit from increased net income due to higher lending rates.
Bank of America reported an unexpectedly high performance this week, with its investment banking segment slowing but still turning out better than expected thanks largely in part because clients are requiring less borrowing power as the economy tries to adjust due to effects caused by inflation.

What’s Happening in the World Economy Amidst Rising Inflation
New Zealand CPI q/a
In New Zealand, the CPI increased 7.2% on an annualized basis in the three months ending September 30. This is higher than the 7.3% increase seen in the previous quarter and the predicted 6.6% increase.
As a result of supply chain interruptions, increased gasoline and food prices, and price increases, the reading stayed close to 32-year highs. Additionally, CPI inflation increased by 2.2% from the prior quarter, exceeding forecasts for an increase of 1.6%.
Australia’s Monetary Policy Meeting Minutes
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Board considered several justifications for raising the cash rate by 50 basis points, as it had for four months in a row, but ultimately chose to raise it by 25 basis points to 2.6%, according to minutes of the Oct. 4 policy meeting released on Tuesday.
The RBA Board highlighted that since May, rates had already increased by 250 basis points, and the majority of those increases had not yet been reflected in mortgage payments.
In addition to affecting home prices and household wealth, the tightening could eventually slow down consumption.
However, the Board emphasized that Australia’s inflation rate of 6.1% was too high and that it was anticipated to reach 7.75% by year’s end, with rents and utilities contributing to the pressure on prices.
