Start the Week with the Best Earnings Charts

Tracey Ryniec

Most of the S&P 500 has reported, but they aren’t the entire stock market. There are still over 600 companies expected to report this week including many investor favorites.

The fun of earnings season isn’t over yet. 

It’s not easy for companies to beat every quarter. It’s only a select few who can be this consistent.  

Here are 5 who are expected to start this earnings week off with a big bang:

1.    Nutrisystem NTRI had a bunch of misses 5 years ago but, until last quarter, has consistently been beating the last few years. The winter quarter should be its big quarter of the year due to New Year’s resolutions. Can it keep its momentum?

2.    Priceline PCLN is a beast. It hasn’t missed in 5 years. Shares were stalled for a few years but have since broken out to new highs. Can it keep up its amazing record?

3.    Target TGT has only missed once in 5 years, but, if you look at the chart, it hasn’t been smooth sailing for the shares. Retail is still a tough place to be.

4.    Endo International ENDP is a specialty pharmaceutical company in both generics and over-the-counter medicines. This area has taken a hit on regulatory fear. Endo has a great record, with just 1 miss in 5 years, but it’s shares have sunk. Is this a buying opportunity?

5.    Ambarella AMBA has missed just twice since 2012. Its future has been tied to GoPro for years now. Can it untie it?

What else should you know about these earnings charts? Tune into the short video to find out.
