Notable Earnings Announcements This Week – January 22nd

Another earnings season upon us, this week kicks off with more than 100 companies announcing earnings. Here are a few of the results to be announced this week that I’ll be looking at carefully:

 

This is from a piece I wrote for GuruFocus, outlining 7 stocks that I think could be volatile after their earnings announcements:

“Earning season can always be expected to bring a rise in volatility. But at a time when stock markets seem to be pricing in perfection, a poor earnings announcement or guidance can stop a stock’s momentum in its tracks. Whether you look at the stock market’s high CAPE ratio, the time since we have seen a correction, or extreme bullish sentiment, it is easy to see that investors have high expectations.

This creates a potential for large moves in a stock’s price after an earnings announcement. Results below expectations can give a harsh reality check for investors who had been expecting greatness. Meanwhile, a blowout earnings announcement can lead to capitulation by bears and send a stock soaring.

As we get into a busy week of earnings announcements, here’s a look at some companies that report earnings this week that investors expect to be volatile after the earnings announcement.”

The article highlights 7 companies; Netflix, Capital One, United Continental, Caterpillar, Freeport-McMoRan, Intel, and General Electric, and information that I think will be most valuable for investors.

For example, with Capital One. Credit performance has been declining recently. Will the trend continue?
