With little earnings news, analyst conferences appear to be dictating the market. What's the trade heading into next week?

Analyst days have become major catalysts, explains Pete Najarian. Of all that’s going on next week, he’s expecting to hear an upside “surprise” from Lilly. And, at the Bank of America conference keep your eye on GMAC (GMA), he adds.

Date Meeting

Mon Dec. 3rd Bank of America credit conference

Tues Dec. 4th Merck analyst meeting

Wed Dec. 5th Bristol Myers analyst meeting
Meeting of the OPEC conference

Thurs. Dec. 6th Eli Lilly analyst meeting

On Wednesday, watch the OPEC meeting for dissent among its members, adds Tim Seymour. There’s speculation that the oil producing nations aren’t as unified as they once were. Anything they say that doesn’t look well coordinated will likely push crude lower.
