The FDA holds a public advisory committee meeting on October 28 the Oncologic Drugs Advisory Committee concerning Oncopeptides AB (OTCPK:OTCPK:ONPPF) product Pepaxto.
    Earnings buzz: Some earnings reporters to watch next week include Evercore (NYSE:EVR) and W.W. Grainger (NYSE:GWW), which are on Morgan Stanley's list of high-conviction earnings picks. A list from BofA of stocks that are set up well for positive earnings surprises includes Altria Group (MO), Exxon Mobil (XOM), Extra Space Storage (NYSE:EXR), CMS Energy (NYSE:CMS) and Facebook (FB) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTX). JPMorgan thinks Coinbase Global (NASDAQ:COIN) could be attractive on a post-earnings dip due to the recent rush of crypto interest. The firm also tips that Ford Motor (F) could see an earnings beat. Evercore ISI is also pointing at Extra Space Storage (EXR) as a likely earnings outperformer, while both William Blair and Baird think Driven Brands (NASDAQ:DRVN) will top estimates.

    GlobalFoundries IPO preview: GlobalFoundries (GFS) goes public next week as the silicon wafer supplier hits the market right in the middle of a global semiconductor shortage. GlobalFoundries expects to raise up to $1.55B in an offering of 55M shares, of which 33M are from the company and 22M shares are from owner Mubadala Investment Co. The IPO is expected to be priced in a range of $42 to $47 per share to value GlobalFoundries as high as $25B. The company was spun off by AMD (AMD) in 2009 and competes with Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (NYSE:TSM). Top customers include Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), MediaTek and NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI).

    Apple earnings preview: Apple (AAPL) reports earnings on October 28 to rising expectations that strong iPhone 13 demand will lead to an earnings beat. Guidance from the company could be mixed due to the impact of the global chip shortage, with some iPhone production getting pushed out of Q4 into 2022. "We view near-term supply chain issues as nothing more than a speed bump on a multi-year supercycle iPhone 12/13 that continues to play out with FY22 Street numbers looking conservative at this juncture," says Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives.
    Projected dividend increases: Companies forecast to boost their quarterly dividend payout include Amphenol (NYSE:APH) to $0.17 from $0.145, Power Integrations (NASDAQ:POWI) to $0.15 from $0.13, Visa (V) to $0.36 from $0.32, Boise Cascade (NYSE:BCC) to $0.11 from $0.10, AbbVie (ABBV) to $1.42 from $1.30, Oshkosh (NYSE:OSK) to $0.36 from $0.33 and Comfort Systems USA (NYSE:FIX) to $0.13 from $0.12. Meanwhile, Sturm, Ruger & Company (NYSE:RGR) is forecast to cut its dividend to $0.88 from $1.00.

    Key corporate events to watch: There are a number of big events to track outside of the busy earnings season. Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) holds its SDC21 developer conference on October 26 to share its latest updates on software, services and platforms. On October 27, Intel (INTC) conducts the first of its new Intel ON series events on October 27.

Facebook (FB) hosts its annual Connect conference on October 28, which is expected to feature a focus on the tech giant's rebranding efforts that include a new name. The rebrand is likely to separate the Facebook app from other products like Instagram, WhatsApp, and Oculus. Mark Zuckerberg has been talking about Facebook transitioning to a metaverse company. Of interest, Facebook is a top holding in the Roundhill Ball Metaverse ETF (NYSEARCA:META). Check out this week's Catalyst Watch for a more detailed rundown of next week's big events.

The Texas test will be Wing's first commercial expansion in the U.S. after years testing the concept in a Virginia town and parts of Australia and Finland.

    Notable annual meetings: Hain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN) on October 28.
    Barron's mentions: The cover story breaks down why investors should be wary with Bitcoin ETFs. High fees and the risk of significant dispersion between ETF prices and the actual Bitcoin price are called two reasons to be careful with the ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITO) and Valkyrie Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BTF). Meanwhile, Chesapeake Energy (NASDAQ:CHK) is seen as an attractive pick in the natural gas sector. The new Chesapeake is a called a "leaner machine, with the boost of added cash-flow generation" from soaring natural gas prices. Chesapeake’s earnings reports on November 3 is expected to be a positive catalyst with cash flow likely to impress.
