The major indexes are mixed to start the week as investors await key inflation data.

Regional bank stocks are also recovering. The SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (NYSE: KRE) rose 2.6% premarket while PacWest Bancorp (Nasdaq: PACW) jumped 31% after announcing a dividend cut.

Earnings season continues with PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL) reporting after the close Monday, and Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UA) reporting before the open Tuesday. Wednesday brings reports from Roblox Corp. (NYSE: RBLX) before the open, and The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) after the close.

Investors are also awaiting the latest inflation data. The Consumer Price Index is due out at 8:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday, while we can expect the Producer Price Index at 8:30 a.m. ET on Thursday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss which earnings are on board for the week ahead… the top two and bottom three sectors to watch… why this week’s inflation data can move the markets… plus what the bond market is up to and how to navigate it in the current market environment!
