Q4 2021 Investor Conference and Events Highlights

Companies and Markets

By Christine Short  |  October 19, 2021

Conferences, forums, summits, and trade shows are among the most important events traders must mark on their calendars. Stock-specific news is often released at these gatherings of executives, analysts, and industry experts. When it comes to keeping track of the hundreds of investor-related conferences per quarter, staying in the know is a challenge for traders and portfolio managers. Wall Street Horizon reports on more than a dozen derivatives of investor-related conferences covering 9,000 companies worldwide.

Questions to Ponder:

  • Is retail ready for booming consumer holiday season demand?
  • Are executives and the world’s biggest companies comfortable increasing workers’ pay?
  • How are oil and gas firms responding to emerging challenges and alternative energy priorities?
  • What innovations will the Technology and Health Care sectors bring us?
  • Are regulations on the way for mega-cap stocks that continue to scoop up market share?
  • Is cryptocurrency an opportunity or threat to the Financials sector?

Apollo (APO) will provide its thoughts along with an outlook on the firm’s long-term growth strategy at this in-person Investor and Analyst Day. The event follows its October 1 shareholder meeting and precedes an unconfirmed Q3 earnings date of October 28.

Brazil, a key emerging market for global growth, has suffered sharp equity market losses following a strong start to the year. Oil prices have been on the rise lately, often a boon for the resource-dependent nation, but shares of Petrobras (PBR) have dipped from their Q2 peak. PBR was a $300 billion market cap behemoth in its 2008 heyday but is now a shell of its former self. Investors and analysts hope for optimistic oil outlooks throughout the company’s three public meetings with analysts (November 30 – NY, December 2 – London, December 7 – Brazil).

For now, systemic risks appear contained, but that could change in short order. The JP Morgan Asia Credit Conference should be one to highlight on your calendar for the latest musings on this evolving situation.
