The Hottest Earnings Charts of the Week

Earnings season is picking up steam.

This week is key because there will be a big cross section of names reporting earnings from many different sectors including the railroads, big industrials, technology and regional banks.

We should get a good look at the US and global economy through these reports. Is it as good as everyone has been saying?

It’s not easy to beat the estimate nearly every quarter for years. But these companies have been doing just that.

But just because you have a great track record doesn’t mean you will always continue to beat.

Who will keep their earnings streaks alive this quarter?

5 Hot Earnings Charts

1.    Abbott Labs ABThasn’t missed in five years. Shares have been in a narrow trading range for most of that time but recently have started to trickle up. Could this finally be the breakout everyone has been waiting for?

2.    PPG Industries PPG has a great track record, with just 1 miss in 2013. Shares have been stuck the last 2 years. Is it time for the industrials to make a move higher?

3.    Snap-On SNA hasn’t missed in 5 years but investors have grown leery of the shares as they have been treading water. What will it take for them to resume their upward momentum?

4.    Microsoft MSFT has become an important earnings report again as shares trade at 5-year highs. Everyone will be watching the Cloud.

5.    eBay EBAY hasn’t missed since it spun off Paypal in 2015. Is this overlooked online retailer ready to head back into the spotlight?
