Earnings Spotlight: Walmart (WMT, $98.52) - Walmart has lagged the broader market in 2019 but is still sitting on a roughly 6% gain ahead of its fourth-quarter earnings report, due out before the Feb. 19 opening bell. Cowen and Co. analyst Oliver Chen is optimistic about Walmart's resistance to Amazon, saying that it's "holding its own" and that satisfaction ratings show "shoppers are clearly noticing Walmart's price investments," though he did urge caution on margins. Plenty more pros are being cautious - more than half the 32 analysts covering WMT rate it a "Hold" (15) or "Sell" (2). Little is expected of Walmart's upcoming report: Estimates are for a 1.8% improvement in revenues to $138.66 billion, but not a penny more in profits than the year-ago quarter's $1.33 per share.

Other Noteworthy Reports: Advance Auto Parts (AAP), American Water Works (AWK), Cooper Tire & Rubber (CTB), CoreCivic (CXW), Devon Energy (DVN), Ecolab (ECL), FirstEnergy (FE), Genuine Parts (GPC), Herbalife Nutrition (HLF), Host Hotels & Resorts (HST), HSBC Holdings (HSBC), KAR Auction Services (KAR), La-Z-Boy (LZB), LendingClub (LC), Medtronic (MDT), Noble Energy (NBL), Texas Roadhouse (TXRH)


Earnings Spotlight: Realty Income (O, $69.78) - Realty Income, a large commercial real estate investment trust (REIT) that rents to tenants such as Walgreens (WBA), 7-Eleven and FedEx (FDX), is known as "The Monthly Dividend Company" for its monthly (instead of quarterly) payouts. But it's delivering more than just income. O shares are matching the market's 10% gains in 2019, and better yet, it's in the midst of a 45% run over the past year that puts it well ahead of most of its REIT peers. Despite its performance, analysts aren't hot on the company - just four of 19 covering analysts rate it a "Buy," with 12 "Holds" and three "Sells." But they do expect a good quarter - a 10.7% improvement on the top line to $343.84 million, filtering down to a 40.9% bottom-line bump to 31 cents per share. Realty Income is scheduled to deliver its report after the Feb. 20 market close.

Earnings Spotlight: Roku Inc. (ROKU, $50.97) - Streaming-platform company Roku is one of the most surprisingly hot stocks of 2019, up well more than 60% year-to-date after releasing promising preliminary Q4 numbers - most notably, 27 million actively used devices. Roku also estimated that its viewers consumed 7.3 billion hours during the quarter - up a whopping 68% year-over-year. As far as financials are concerned, analysts are looking for 39% revenue growth to $261.62 million, though profits likely will be pared back from 8 cents in the year-ago period to just 3 cents. The official numbers will come after the market close on Feb. 21.
