The past week began for the US stock market with a move up, while Wall Street was preparing to publish a huge number of quarterly reports by companies.

According to Refinitiv, analysts expect that in the last quarter of the S & P 500 companies will show a decline in profits by 1.7% year on year, which could be the first decline in the indicator since 2016. According to CNBC, the profit figures of most companies that have already submitted their reports turned out to be higher than the analyst had predicted. According to FactSet, 76.5% of the S & P 500 companies that have reported, have shown higher-than-expected earnings. At the beginning of the reporting season, analysts predicted a drop in profits of 4.2%. In addition, market participants closely followed the situation on the oil market: oil prices rose by more than 2.5% after Trump’s administration announced that it would finally ban Iranian oil purchases, which is expected to lead to reduction in world oil supplies.

The next day, the growth continued, as the results of a number of the largest companies exceeded expectations weakened concerns about a decline in corporate segment profits. Market participants drew attention to the report of the Ministry of Commerce, which showed that sales of new homes in the United States unexpectedly jumped in March to the highest level in more than a year. New home sales rose by 4.5% in March, to an annual level of 692,000, after a 5.9% increase in February, to a revised level of 662,000. Continuing growth surprised economists who expected sales to fall to 650,000 from 667,000. originally reported in the previous month. With an unexpected increase, sales of new homes reached the highest annual rate since November 2017 (712,000).

Thursday showed mixed performance, as Facebook (FB) and Microsoft (MSFT) went up after strong quarterly reporting by companies, supporting the Nasdaq index, while 3M (MMM) shares fell after the disappointing quarterly results / forecasts were published pressure on the dow. The focus was also on the data of the Ministry of Trade, which showed that orders for durable goods rose by 2.7% in March after falling by a revised 1.1% in February. Economists expected durable goods orders to grow by 0.8% compared with the 1.6 percent reduction originally announced in the previous month. Excluding the sharp increase in orders for transportation equipment, orders for durable goods rose by 0.4% after the decrease of -0.2% in February.

The week ended with a slight increase. The Ministry of Commerce reported that according to preliminary estimates, the US GDP increased in the first quarter of 2019 by 3.2% on an annualized basis, after rising 2.2% in the fourth quarter of the previous year.
