Must-Watch Earnings Charts to End the Week

This is a big week for earnings, with over 800 companies expected to report, including many Dow Industrial and S&P 500 companies.

In addition to some of the top technology titans, there are also a handful of other companies that you should keep an eye on.

These companies are on everyone’s list because they are breaking out, are widely held, or they just have fantastic earnings track records.

It’s not easy to beat the earnings consensus every quarter for years, but some of these companies are doing just that.

5 Earnings Reports You Must Watch

1.    Baidu BIDU hasn’t missed since 2014. Shares had been stuck in a narrow trading range but have recently busted out to new 5-year highs. Can it build even more momentum off another earnings beat?

2.    AbbVie ABBV has missed only once since its 2013 spin-off from Abbott Labs. Shares have soared in 2017 but the healthcare stocks are out of favor. Can it continue to hit new highs?

3.    Expedia EXPE has missed 4 quarters in a row but shares are still trading near 5-year highs. Does the miss or the beat matter with this company?

4.    Colgate-Palmolive CL has only missed once in the last 5 years but shares aren’t going anywhere as the consumer products companies remain out of favor.

5.    Columbia Sportswear COLM is in the dreaded retail sector so shares have been stuck. But it has a great earnings track record, with just one miss in the last 5 years.
