Investors still have trade handicapping on the agenda next week as talks between the U.S. and China are expected to continue. While we know trade risk is baked into the share price of a large number of U.S. multinationals, the question remains to what degree are companies with over 50% of their revenue tied to China like Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), Micron (NASDAQ:MU), Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) and Marvell Technology (NASDAQ:MRVL) being held back? As for next week: Expect tweets and expect volatility. On the macro front, a blistering day of economic reports arrives midweek when reports on retail sales, Empire State manufacturing, industrial production, business inventories and a key housing market index all arrive on May 15. The week ahead also sees the biggest blockchain event of the year taking place in New York City, media upfronts, 13F filings from hedge funds and a ramping up of investor conferences.
