Are you sad that Facebook, Google and Amazon have all reported earnings?

Fear not. There are plenty of well-known companies that haven't yet reported and who have tremendous earnings surprise track records.

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

Here are 4 who have that great record who are reporting at the end of this week.

1. Zoetis ZTS , the animal health care company, has missed only twice since its 2013 IPO. Shares are at new highs heading into the report.

2. Trinity Industries TRN has only missed once in the last 5 years. This rail car manufacturer, though, faces declining earnings as the rail cycle is headed down. Customers are the bottom of the ordering cycle. Will Trinity see any upside to orders in 2017?

3. Deere DE is a surprise as it's just missed twice in the last 5 years despite the slowdown in sales in the agriculture sector. Shares have soared to new 5 year highs on possible infrastructure spending. Will the rally continue?

4. Campbells CPB has a great track record with just 2 misses over the last 5 years. It has launched several new soups aimed at Generation Xers and Millennials that the company is hoping boosts profits.
