Over 700 companies will report earnings this week including a bunch of the technology titans and the glamour stocks.
These five companies are the names that will be on everyone’s lips this week. Several of them have outstanding earnings surprise track records which isn’t easy to do. It takes more than just finessing the numbers to beat nearly every quarter for 5 years.
Some of these stocks are near new 5-year highs while others have gone the other way.
Will the losers become the winners this earnings season?
5 Tech Earnings Charts Everyone Will Be Watching
1. Microsoft (MSFT – Free Report) has beat 9 quarters in a row. The stock is one of the few big technology companies that still has upward momentum. Shares are up 26% year-to-date. Can it keep its earnings streak intact?
4. Twitter (TWTR – Free Report) hasn’t missed since 2015. That’s an impressive track record. But investors are more concerned about revenue and subscriber growth than they are the earnings miss or beat. Is the recent pullback in the shares a buying opportunity?
5. Snap Inc. (SNAP – Free Report) has fallen 54% year-to-date to new all-time lows on fears that Instagram has taken market share. It has only missed one time since its 2017 IPO but investors haven’t cared about that. What will save this stock?
