5 of the Best Big Cap Earnings Charts

Tracey Ryniec
Improving operating environment will likely help Travelers (TRV) exceed expectations in Q1.

This is the first big week of earnings season and that means we’ll get a lot of big cap companies reporting, including several Dow components.

These five companies, in various industries, lead off the charge as several have some of the best charts of not only this week, but of the entire earnings season.

It’s not easy to beat every quarter for years. If they’ve done it, it means surviving various economic conditions and having management with a forward-thinking vision.

Can these five keep up their winning streaks?

5 of the Best Big Cap Earnings Charts

1.    Johnson & Johnson JNJ has kept its earnings beat streak alive. It hasn’t missed in over 5 years. Shares are off in 2018, as the stock market has pulled back. Will it get a boost from earnings?

2.    UnitedHealth Group UNH has one of the best charts on all of Wall Street. Shares are off the recent all-time highs. Is this a change in the growth stocks or is it just a pause as these big cap names move higher still?

3.    IBM IBM has beat 13 quarters in a row but shares have been stagnant for several years on worries about revenue growth. Will blockchain be IBM’s savior?

4.    Intuitive Surgical ISRG has been one of the hottest medical stocks for the last two years. It has beat 11 quarters in a row. But shares have paused in 2018. Is this a buying opportunity?

5.    Lam Research LRCX hasn’t missed in five years. It was a great performer in 2017 but volatility has hit the shares in 2018. Will this earnings report be just the boost it needs?
