Real Time Insight

Here in Chicago, home of the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, mid-April is a great time of year. Baseball has begun (let’s leave that one alone), the NBA and NHL playoffs are here, and it’s earnings season. I don’t know which one of these I’m more excited about.

Next week we have some big names coming out with earnings reports. Among the heavy hitters reporting are Netflix , Apple , and Facebook . I could rattle off a hundred more companies of interest here but you get the gist.

My question is which company’s earnings report are you most interested in and what are you looking for?

These earnings reports could be early warning signs for a bull market that is on its last legs or they could be a jump off point for further growth and P/E multiple expansion.

I myself am looking forward to hearing the NFLX numbers. These earnings reports have historically been huge catalysts for the stock in either direction. A good report could have the shorts cover and see NFLX back above $400 in a heartbeat. A bad report and we could see the high $200s.

Also I want to hear about AAPL’s margins. Have they held up over the last quarter or is the squeezing trend continued?

Let me know which companies are popping up on your radar and why.
