Wednesday’s Factors and Events

The spread of the coronavirus in the U.S. is stabilizing. All eyes are on New York, as new cases and hospitalizations in the hardest-hit section of the country looks to be leveling off. Just yesterday, the Governor said that the worst appears to be over.

Such news outshined difficult reports from JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM, -2.7%) and Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC, -4%), which drove the banks lower and provides the first glimpse at just how bad this shutdown will be on corporate results and, especially, their outlooks for the future.

And the big financial names are just getting started, as Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS), Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and Citigroup (NYSE:C) are scheduled for tomorrow.
