This Week's Spectacular Big Cap Earnings Charts

Over 800 companies are expected to report this week, including a bunch of prominent large cap companies.

Many of these Dow Industrial and S&P 500 companies have taken off in 2017 as investors have fallen in love with the large cap names.

These 5 companies that are reporting this week are some of the most watched names on the Street. And their charts aren't too shabby either. Not only have they beaten nearly every quarter for the past five years, but several of them are trading at 5-year or even all-time highs.

Are they priced for perfection they won't be able to match?

Or is the hot global economy about to give all of the multinational stocks a new boost?

These Companies Have Spectacular Earnings Charts

1. McDonald's (MCD) hasn't missed on earnings since 2014 but the big story is how hot the stock has been over the past year. It's now trading with a forward P/E of 25. Can it keep up with expectations?

2. Lockheed Martin (LMT) has one of the best charts on the Street. Look at that beauty. It has only missed once in the last 5 years and shares just keep hitting new 5-year highs.

3. Edwards Lifesciences (EW) has seen a big pullback in its shares in the last 2 years even while it kept beating on earnings. Is it back on track to break out to near 5-year highs?

4. Visa (V) is a beast. It hasn't missed in 5 years and it has been a nearly smooth ride to 5-year highs. This is one of the best charts on all of Wall Street. Is it too good to be true or will a heating up of the global economy give the shares even more fuel?

5. Boeing (BA) has missed just one time in the last 5 years. This is also a global growth story. Shares have broken out in 2017. Will another beat boost the shares even higher?
