Here in Chicago, home of the reigning Stanley Cup Champions,
mid-April is a great time of year. Baseball has begun (let's leave
that one alone), the NBA and NHL playoffs are here, and it's
earnings season. I don't know which one of these I'm more excited
Next week we have some big names coming out with earnings reports.
Among the heavy hitters reporting are Netflix (NFLX), Apple (AAPL),
and Facebook (FB). I could rattle off a hundred more companies of
interest here but you get the gist.
My question is
which company's earnings report are you most interested in
and what are you looking for?
These earnings reports could be early warning signs for a bull
market that is on its last legs or they could be a jump off point
for further growth and P/E multiple expansion.
I myself am looking forward to hearing the NFLX numbers. These
earnings reports have historically been huge catalysts for the
stock in either direction. A good report could have the shorts
cover and see NFLX back above $400 in a heartbeat. A bad report and
we could see the high $200s.
Also I want to hear about AAPL's margins. Have they held up over
the last quarter or is the squeezing trend continued?
Let me know which companies are popping up on your radar and why.
