President's Day Sale: Dividend.com Premium Price Slashed — Redeem Now

Dividend logo

For investors, the last full trading week of January will see the first full week of President Trump’s reign. While it is expected to be a peaceful transition of power, the so-called “Trump Bump” has proven otherwise. The boost that stocks received since the election has dissipated and the last few weeks have turned year-end gains into losses. With not much going on regarding data, we could see traders continuing to focus on the transition of power and just what a Trump presidency will bring.

Speaking of that lack of data, only a few key metrics will be released this week. The vast bulk will be focused on housing and manufacturing points.

What investors will get is a whole slew of earnings reports. The earnings season is officially here, and this slate of reports is especially critical as they will include year-end numbers as well. So far, reports have been mixed. Guidance figures have also come with a side of caution. With more firms reporting this week, any uncertainty here coupled with Trump’s first week could add plenty of volatility to the markets.

All in all, the focus will be on Trump and the volatility that the transition could bring.
