Earnings All Stars with Perfect Charts

Only about 250 companies are reporting this week, but many of the biggest names on The Street are among them including technology giants, big health insurers and one element of FANG.

It’s not easy beating earnings every quarter for years. It takes a mastery of both the business and of Wall Street.

But these five companies have mastered both. Not only do they have perfect earnings track records, but their charts are some of the best on the Street.

Earnings All Stars with Perfect Surprise Records

1.    Netflix NFLX has beat 5 years in a row but it’s about more than just earnings for this media giant. Investors will be watching the growth in the number of subscribers and costs as well.

2.    Lockheed Martin LMThas been on fire as this defense stock just keeps producing earnings beats.

3.    UnitedHealth Group UNHhas one of the best charts on the Street. Remember when Obamacare was going to be the doom of the private insurers? In fact, just the opposite has happened. But what will happen under Trumpcare?

4.    Johnson & Johnson JNJhas been one of the most consistent earnings performers in the Dow Industrials. Shares recently broke out to another set of 5-year highs.

5.    Visa Valso has one of the best charts on the Street. It just quietly goes about its business quarter after quarter. This is one to watch in the financial sector.
