Allergan (AGN) is expected to deliver a year-over-year decline in earnings on lower revenues when it reports results for the quarter ended September 2018. This widely-known consensus outlook gives a good sense of the company's earnings picture, but how the actual results compare to these estimates is a powerful factor that could impact its near-term stock price. The earnings report, which is expected to be released on October 30, 2018, might help the stock move higher if these key numbers are better than expectations.

It’s still unclear how Trump will propose to reduce the tax burden on middle-class Americans, but one of the most straightforward ways would be to lower rates by 10 percent for single filers making up to $82,500. U.S. income tax rates are graduated and income dollars get taxed in chunks as they move up through the brackets -- which means wealthy Americans would also get to apply the reduced rate on their first dollars of income. “A millionaire gets the same size tax cut,” said Kyle Pomerleau, an economist at the conservative Tax Foundation.
