Earnings Calendar Highlights
Noteworthy Earnings Reports: N/A - Stock market holiday (Martin Luther King Jr. Day)
Earnings Spotlight: Netflix (NFLX, $338.62) - Netflix enters its fourth-quarter earnings report on wobbly legs. Shares have pushed about 20% higher over the past three months, but that's just one hill in a roller-coaster ride since early 2018 that has seen the stock gain very little ground overall. NFLX's recent rally was in part fueled by a mixed third-quarter report that profits and international paid subscriber additions beat expectations, but revenues and domestic subscriber adds fall short. Several analysts have come out in support of the stock briefly ahead of its Jan. 21 report, due out after the market close. JPMorgan's Doug Anmuth reiterated his Overweight rating, citing confidence in its "strong" fourth-quarter content lineup including The Irishman, 6 Underground and The Witcher. BMO Capital's Daniel Salmon wrote an optimistic note, too, saying that the streaming wars can have "multiple winners," downplaying the idea that Disney's (DIS) Disney+ or Apple's (AAPL) Apple TV+ would sink Netflix. For the quarter to be reported, the pros are projecting a 30.2% improvement in revenues to $5.45 billion, and a 73.3% pop in profits to 52 cents per share.
Other Noteworthy Reports: Capital One Financial (COF), Comerica (CMA), Halliburton (HAL), International Business Machines (IBM), Navient (NAV), PetMed Express (PETS), TAL Education (TAL), United Airlines (UAL), Zions Bancorp (ZION)

Earnings Spotlight: Procter & Gamble (PG, $126.07) - Procter & Gamble is a consumer staples giant that does much of its best stock work when the market is shaky and sends investors looking for safety. But the maker of Tide and Charmin has appreciated 37% over the past year, beating the broader market by a full 10 percentage points. No wonder: P&G has beaten earnings expectations by an average of 54% over its past three financial reports. The analyst community has been fairly quiet about the stock since its last earnings release a quarter ago; they're also not resoundingly bullish. The stock has earned 10 Buy ratings, according to Wall Street Journal data, but also 10 Holds and even 2 Sells. The pros are optimistic, however, about the quarterly results P&G is expected to report before the Jan. 23 open. They seen revenues improving 5.2% to $18.35 billion, and profits gaining 9.6% to $1.37 per share.
Other Noteworthy Reports: American Airlines (AAL), Comcast (CMCSA), Discover Financial Services (DFS), E*Trade (ETFC), Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), Intel (INTC), Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), JetBlue Airways (JBLU), KeyCorp (KEY), Kimberly-Clark (KMB), M&T Bank (MTB), Old Republic International (ORI), Skyworks Solutions (SWKS), Southwest Airlines (LUV), Travelers (TRV), Union Pacific (UNP), VF Corp. (VFC)
Earnings Spotlight: NextEra Energy (NEE, $252.27) - It's not often that a utility stock is a noteworthy report, given their slow-and-steady nature, but NextEra Energy is not your average utility. This company not only owns Florida Power & Light, America's largest regulated utility, but also a high-growth renewable-energy unit leveraging sources such as wind and solar. That growth has pushed NEE's shares 136% higher over the past five years - some 98 percentage points better than the utility sector, and roughly double the broader market. Several analyst firms, including Credit Suisse and Mizuho, have reiterated their Buy ratings over the past few days, demonstrating optimism about another fruitful year. Estimates for its fourth quarter, however, to be reported before the Jan. 24 open, are fairly modest. Revenues are expected to climb 5.9% to $4.65 billion, and profit estimates are for $1.51 per share - a 1.3% uptick.
