The Week Ahead: Amazon, Alphabet Lead Earnings Reports

Ford, GM, and Fiat Chrysler are on tap, along with healthcare names and oil majors. Plus, McDonald's, Chipotle, Coke, and Visa.

Jeremy Glaser: Earnings are in full swing this week. Analyst R.J. Hottovy has called Amazon, which reports Thursday, the most disruptive force in retail in decades. We'll be looking for updates on the Whole Foods integration and for more signs the firm is putting together the building blocks for long-term margin growth.

Google parent Alphabet also will release results on Thursday, and we'll see if their momentum in ads can continue.

Automakers saw a bump in demand after the recent storms. We'll get reports from Ford, GM, and Fiat Chrysler during the week.

Healthcare stocks have had a good run as concerns over pressure on drug prices have ebbed. We generally see the sector as overvalued today. Biogen, Eli Lilly, Baxter, and Merck are all on tap.

Other earnings due include McDonald's, Chipotle, Coke, and Visa along with oil majors Chevron and Exxon Mobil.

There is less happening on the data front, with the advance estimate of third-quarter GDP on Friday being the main event.

Stay tuned for our take on these stories.
