Trades from $3

The major part of Q3 earnings cycle is now behind us with 364 S&P 500 members or 78.2% of the index’s total membership having already reported their quarterly results, as of Nov 2, according to the latest Zacks Earnings Outlook.

Per the report, approximately 72.3% of the companies posted positive earnings surprises, while 54.7% beat top-line expectations. Earnings as well as revenues of these companies witnessed a year-over-year increase of 1.6%.

The trend this earnings season indicates that we may finally see a positive earnings picture after five straight quarters of decline. The report projects that earnings for the total S&P 500 companies will improve 2.4% from the year-ago period, while total revenue will grow 1.4%. We will have a clearer picture by the end of next week.

Talking about the technology sector, per the Earnings Outlook report, as of Nov 2, 74% of the sector’s total market capitalization in the S&P 500 index has already reported results. Total earnings of these tech companies are up 1% from the same period last year on 1.4% higher revenues, with 84.2% beating earnings estimates and 71.1% surpassing revenue expectations.

It should be noted that Apple Inc.’s (AAPL - Free Report) dismal results proved to be a drag on the overall performance of the sector. The company’s Q3 earnings were down 19% from the same period last year on 9% lower revenues. Therefore, excluding Apple, we would have seen strong revenue and earnings growth for the overall tech sector.
