Editor's note: InvestorPlace's Earnings Reports to Watch is updated weekly. Please check back next week for our latest earnings picks. Earnings season is here. And it certainly seems like a big one. The market has rallied in 2019, with the S&P 500 already up 5%+ so far this year. So far, the earnings calendar has been favorable: financials have been the year's top stocks after solid reports from the likes of Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) last week. Already, it's a notable change from the earnings calendar in late October and early November when even strong reports seemed to be greeted with almost indiscriminate selling. Investors simply seemed too focused on forward-looking worries about trade wars, interest rates and tariffs to be optimistic about backward-looking earnings reports. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Early indications suggest that has changed. That, in turn, sets up some optimism toward the next few weeks, when many of the market's top stocks -- and largest companies -- report. For all the noise in the market over the past few months, corporate earnings still look strong. That suggests that the earnings calendar this time around could drive a further rebound in the broad market. But for that to be the case, earnings have to cooperate. And earnings reports next week should show whether that will be the case. Several Dow Jones Industrial Average components report, but these three look like the most important. One of the market's most widely-owned stocks will try and bounce back from a big decline. A consumer giant will try and prove that there's value in a sector that has struggled of late. And a chip giant will try and keep the bounce in that sector going. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy for the Rise of Menswear It's a big week for the market -- one that could determine how U.S. stocks trade for the rest of 2019. ### Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Tuesday, Jan. 22, before market open Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) has a key earnings report on Tuesday, but the numbers might not be the focus. JNJ stock still hasn't recovered from a 10% decline last month, when a Reuters report claimed the company covered up the asbestos in its baby powder. JNJ's market capitalization fell a stunning $40 billion in a single day -- and the stock still hasn't recovered. Even after the declines, JNJ still has the eighth-largest market capitalization among U.S. stocks. So the response to Tuesday's report - and management commentary about the company's legal exposure - will move the entire market, not just JNJ. The question is whether Johnson & Johnson, given multiple pending lawsuits, will even address the issue beyond a statement released at the time. Any response from the company likely will overshadow the numbers. But the lack of a response might do the same. ### Procter & Gamble (PG) Source: Mike Mozart via Flickr (Modified) Earnings Report Date: Wednesday, Jan. 23, before market open Consumer packaged goods stocks have struggled of late, as margin pressures at supermarket customers and growing private-label penetration have led revenue and earnings growth to slow. But Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) has been bucking the trend. PG stock bounced 35% from May lows to December highs, making it one of the top stocks in the consumer space. But PG stock has pulled back, setting up an important fiscal Q2 report on Wednesday. I've long been a skeptic toward P&G, and the recent run looks like too much. Growth remains modest at best, and the company's multiple cost-cutting efforts this decade have wrung out every dollar of expense. * 7 Companies Apple Should Consider Buying PG still looks dangerous at these levels -- and any weakness in Q2 earnings could send the stock tumbling. The gains from May lows have moved expectations higher. It remains to be seen whether P&G can meet those expectations. ### Intel (INTC) Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Thursday, Jan. 24, after market close Semiconductor stocks have benefited from the recent broad market rebound. The iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (NASDAQ:SOXX) has bounced about 12% off its December lows. So has chip giant Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). For those gains to continue -- for both the sector and INTC stock - Intel earnings on Thursday afternoon need to be solid. Expectations are reasonably high, with the Street looking for 11%+ revenue growth and a 13% increase in earnings per share. Given that Intel hasn't missed consensus since Q1 2017, history suggests Intel should be able to deliver at least that type of growth. If it does, that could be good news not only for INTC, but struggling chip plays like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) and rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD). Investors clearly are worried about a cyclical downturn in the sector. Intel can assuage those fears -- and send the entire sector higher with a good report. I still think those rivals are the top stocks to play a rebound in semiconductor stocks. But a strong earnings report from Intel might change my mind - and drive the entire chip space higher. As of this writing, Vince Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 7 Companies Apple Should Consider Buying * 7 Beaten-Up Housing Stocks Due for a Bounce Back * Take Buffett's Advice: 5 Vanguard Funds to Buy Compare Brokers The post 3 Earnings Reports to Watch Next Week appeared first on InvestorPlace.

Major consumer companies including Unilever (ULVR.L), Procter & Gamble (PG.N) and Nestle (NESN.S) are chasing consumers who want food and household goods delivered automatically, even though this kind of business has not always worked.

# Procter & Gamble Co ### NYSE:PG View full report here! ## Summary * Perception of the company's creditworthiness is neutral * Bearish sentiment is low * Economic output in this company's sector is expanding ## Bearish sentiment Short interest | Positive Short interest is extremely low for PG with fewer than 1% of shares on loan.

Procter & Gamble: What to Expect in the Second Quarter(Continued from Prior Part)Valuation summary Procter & Gamble (PG) stock trades at 20.8x its estimated fiscal 2019 EPS of $4.41, which doesn’t look attractive given the projected growth
Major consumer companies including Unilever, Procter & Gamble and Nestle are chasing consumers who want food and household goods delivered automatically, even though this kind of business has not always worked. The companies are pitching new online subscription services, which promise stable revenues, lower delivery costs and valuable data about customers. The world's biggest packaged food company, Nestle, whose Nespresso coffee is already a sizeable subscription business, recently launched a subscription programme for nutritional drinks in Japan and expanded ReadyRefresh, an online bottled water service, in the United States.
The market has long been reluctant to buy into Procter & Gamble's PG ability to sustainably reignite its top-line performance, and as such, the shares have languished. Peltz suggested that P&G's organizational structure, corporate governance, and recent financial performance lagged peers and that more must be done to accelerate the pace of change at the leading household and personal-care company. This stood to not only aid its sales growth trajectory but also support the brand intangible asset that underlies its wide economic moat.
Gillette’s new ad campaign invoking the #MeToo movement is the latest test of how big consumer brands can navigate social movements to appeal to millennials without turning off customers who either don’t agree with their message or don’t believe it is well-executed. Co.’s Gillette tries to tackle sexual harassment, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” “Is this the best a man can get?” the ad released online Monday asks. The ad, which plays on the tagline Gillette has used for three decades, “The Best A Man Can Get,” has been viewed about 18 million times on YouTube.
Chief Executive Officer Grant Reid announced the goal in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, offering a rare peek into the ambitions of a family-owned company that isn’t required to disclose its financial data. “Our vision is to keep our privately held company forever,” Reid said in the interview at Bloomberg’s New York headquarters.

Procter & Gamble Co. plans to run an Olay skincare commercial geared toward women during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, marking the first time the brand will be advertised during a telecast of the championship football game. The Cincinnati-based maker of consumer goods such as Olay Regenerist Whip face moisturizer (NYSE: PG) hasn’t disclosed the content of the ad, but it reportedly will be focused on a “totally unexpected angle” and feature a woman as the lead character. The ad is to air during the first quarter of the game that will begin at 6:30 p.m. on CBS, which is charging more than $5 million for such a 30-second spot. More than 100 million people are expected to tune into Super Bowl LIII, which will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta by the winner of Jan. 20 playoffs (the New England Patriots versus the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Los Angeles Rams versus the New Orleans Saints). Nearly half of those who watch the big game are expected to be women.
Thirty years after first introducing the tagline “The Best A Man Can Get,” Gillette (PG) is taking a fresh look at what it means to be “the best” and how we continue to portray those ideals in a modern way. Because in a world where the actions of the few can taint the reputation of the many, we know there’s work to be done – together. “Gillette believes in the best in men,” said Gary Coombe, president, P&G Global Grooming.

Global companies including BASF, DowDuPont, Procter & Gamble and SABIC have formed an alliance to fight plastic waste, pledging to spend $1.5 billion over the next five years. The Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW), unveiled by its 28 founding companies on Wednesday, convened amid reports of a worsening environmental crisis from about 8 million tonnes of plastic waste that end up in oceans every year, which has triggered bans on some single-use plastic products. Current alliance members have committed more than $1 billion to the project over the next five years, while money that additional members will pledge should take the five-year budget to about $1.5 billion, a spokesman said.
