This Week In The Market – July 25, 2017- LPL Research
Tax Reform Pivot?
Is it time for the tax reform pivot? Earnings season will get a lot of attention this week (July 24–28) with 190 S&P 500 Index companies slated to report, as will the Federal Reserve with its two-day policy meeting concluding on Wednesday, July 26 (though we do not expect any big news). Just as important for markets is the Republicans’ latest unsuccessful attempt to reform healthcare, which means that we are closer to the pivot toward tax reform. This week, given the latest healthcare developments in Washington, D.C., we share our updated thoughts on tax reform’s prospects and some implications for the healthcare sector.
