On Wall Street in the week ahead, stock market investors’ focus will be mostly on heavyweight earnings including Nvidia and Walmart, and the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) minutes.

Nvidia, the third most valuable  American company after Apple and Microsoft, will report its quarterly earnings results on February 21.

On economic front investors will not have much data to watch for next week.

Last week, the inflation data hurt investors’ hopes that the US Federal Reserve could begin cutting interest rates in March.

February 22 will see the release of the S&P flash US services PMI and the S&P flash US manufacturing PMI for the current month. Data on existing home sales for January will also be released on the same day.

Walmart, Home Depot, Caesars Entertainment, Palo Alto Networks, Medtronic, Analog Devices, Nvidia, Etsy, Rio Tinto, Marathon Oil, Rivian Automotive, Lucid Group, PG&E, Dominion Energy, Moderna, Intuit, Booking Holdings, Wayfair, Carvana, Warner Bros. Discovery, Bloomin' Brands, and Ameren.
