There are over 400 companies reporting earnings this week but not all of them have records where they have beaten nearly every quarter for years. It's not easy to do. Think about all that has happened over the last 5 years in the economy.
But these companies have managed to beat the earnings consensus for most, or all, of that time.
Here are 4 that have amazing earnings surprise records and they're looking to do it again this week.
1. Raytheon RTN has missed just once in the last 5 years. It has a gorgeous chart with shares at multi-year highs.
2. Lear Corporation LEA has a perfect track record with no misses in the last 5 years. Shares have finally broken out to new highs after worries about peak auto plagued them in 2016.
3. PayPal PYPL hasn't been public that long but it hasn't missed since it was spun off of eBay in 2015. Shares are choppy though.
4. Brunswick BC has missed just once in the last 5 years. The maker of boats, marine engines and, yes, air hockey tables, looks like it wants to break out of its recent trading range. Will this earnings report finally be the juice that sends the shares to new heights?
