Here is the key news investors need to start their trading day:

1. Wake up, it’s Monday

The Bulls are hoping this week will be better than last. Friday’s closing bell ended a rough five-day frame for both the S&P 500, which slipped over 1.1%, and the Nasdaq, which slipped more than 2.4%. While stocks have started the year relatively well, there are certain realities that are keeping things in check. Inflation has come down but is still high. The Federal Reserve has seen the light at the end of the tunnel but is still poised to raise interest rates further to slow inflation. And while the economy has been resilient, there are still areas where slowdowns are a cause for concern. Read live market updates.

2. Another week of big earnings

Speaking of factors weighing on stocks, earnings haven’t been all that good this quarter. The outlook for companies has also not been good, although some expect the skies to clear up in the second half of the year. Coke And Cisco leading the pack this week. Here are the big names reporting:

  • Tuesday: Coke, restaurant brands (in front of the bell); Airbnb (after the bell)
  • Wednesday: Kraft Heinz, Roblox (in front of the bell); Cisco, Zilov, Shopify, Boston beer, Year, QuantumScape (after the bell)

3. A classic Super Bowl

This year’s Super Bowl had it all. Rihanna revealed she was pregnant during her stunning halftime performance. Celebrities dominated what turned out to be a really fun series of commercials (though for some reason they weren’t peddling crypto this time). Media critic and Twitter CEO Elon Musk was spotted sitting with News Corp and Fox honcho Rupert Murdoch. And the game was great too. After the Philadelphia Eagles, led by an incredible Jalen Hurts, took a 24-14 halftime lead, the Kansas City Chiefs and their MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes executed a nearly flawless game plan in the second half to win 38-35 . It’s the Chiefs’ second Super Bowl win in four years.

4. Explain the housing market

It can be difficult to keep up with all the ups, downs and sideways movements in the real estate market. What is going on with real estate prices these days? CNBC’s Diana Olick breaks it down. While price increases have been slowing for months, actual prices are still higher than they were 12 months ago. With mortgage rates easing somewhat, demand seems to be returning and that could help push prices back up a bit. “While prices continued to fall from November, the rate of decline was slower than the summer and still adds up to a cumulative price decline of just 3% since last spring’s peak,” said Selma Hepp, CoreLogic’s chief economist.

5. Watch the sky

What about all the close encounters in North American airspace lately? things from another world? Almost certainly not, although when asked if extraterrestrials were involved, a senior US military said he hadn’t ruled anything out. “I’ll let the intelligence community and the counterintelligence community figure that out,” said Gen. Glen VanHerck, commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command and US Northern Command. The wild speculation came as US jets shot more objects out of North American skies over the weekend, days after they downed a Chinese spy balloon hovering over much of the United States. The newer objects weren’t as big as the Chinese balloon, and it’s not clear where they might have come from. And the legislature demands answers. The truth is probably out there.
