The Earnings Charts We’ll All Be Watching – August 22, 2017

42

This is the last major week of the second quarter earnings season with only about 200 companies expected to report earnings.

But the end of earnings season also signals that the retailers will be reporting and this week, there’s a slew of them from apparel retailers to home goods, furniture and jewelry.

However, they’re not the only big names still to report. Surprisingly, there are a handful of big name companies that will be reporting this week, many with excellent earnings records.

It isn’t easy to beat nearly every quarter for years but these names have been doing that in very competitive industries.
