Deere And Foot Locker's Earnings

Deere Company (NYSE:DE) signaled inflation is going to get worse as sales missed due to surging farming costs. ​ The agricultural world is facing high costs and they are not buying new equipment, which could mean higher food costs over time.

Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE:FL) surprised with decent results and provided a surprisingly positive report when compared to what we heard from Target (NYSE:TGT) and Walmart Inc (NYSE:WMT) earlier in the week. ​ Foot Locker shares might be higher, but the stock was beaten up over the last several months.


Despite a wave or risk aversion hitting Wall Street, crude prices still remain supported as oil markets will remain tight for the foreseeable future. Even a ninth consecutive week of rising rig counts will alter how tight energy traders expect this market to remain.

A lot of energy stories could keep crude’s bullish streak intact as the European Union is nearing a ban on Russian oil and as the refined products market is poised to get even tighter.


Gold prices are holding up as Wall Street crumbles over recession fears. ​ Inflation is not letting up and that has many investors expecting the Fed to continue with an aggressive pace of tightening. ​ Gold is starting to attract safe-haven flows even as dollar dominance remains in place. ​ Bond yields are in freefall as investors pile back into ​ Treasuries.

Gold is comfortably above the $1800 level and seems like it could become attractive again as investors anticipate another round of stock market selling.
