The Stock Market Super Bowl
Monday Market Update - January 29, 2024
This will be the busiest week of the quarter, starting tonight with SMCI earnings.
The company pre-announced preliminary results earlier this month, and the news sent the stock screaming higher.
This evening, they will report the actual numbers, and the focus will likely be on how they guide.
Do they expect the growth to continue?
If so, at what rate?
With the stock up so much already, the news will have to be very good to keep it there.
