The Best Earnings Charts This Week

Earnings season isn't over yet. Another 1000+ companies are reporting earnings this week including restaurants, retailers, technology, recent IPOs and other hot names.

Tracey has gone through the charts so you don't have to. These are the companies with some of the best earnings charts to start the week.

It's not easy to beat on the earnings consensus nearly every quarter. Imagine being a retailer and doing it? But one of these companies has beaten every quarter for 5 years while being located in the shopping mall.

Restaurant companies also continue to beat but investors have been shunning most of those stocks. Suddenly, burger chains aren't so hot.

Will these companies continue with their impressive earnings surprise streaks this quarter?

The Best Earnings Charts to Start the Week

1. Red Robin Gourmet Burger RRGB has misses only 3 times in the last 5 years. But shares are well off their highs. What can bring it back in favor with investors?

2. Fossil FOSL has been left for dead by investors. Some actually think there won't be watches at all in the next few years. But Fossil also makes wearables. And a surprising number of Millennials continue to wear "old-fashioned" watches.

3. Wendy's WEN is one of the few restaurant chains trading near its highs. Can it keep up the momentum?

4. Children's Place PLCE hasn't missed in five years. It has had some of the best sales numbers of all the apparel retailers. Shares are up big. Is it priced for perfection?

5. Planet Fitness PLNT just keeps running along. It hasn't missed since its 2015 IPO but shares also haven't really broken out. Is its time coming?
