Even though earnings season is winding down, there are still over 300 companies reporting this week including some big tech and retail names. If you want a look into how the economy might perform in the next several months, these are earnings report to tune into.

Tracey dug through all of the charts to find only the best this week. These companies have either beaten every quarter for the last 5 years or have just 1 miss in that period. Neither is easy to do.

But here are four doing it to finish out the week:

1.    1. Cisco (CSCO - Free Report) is always a steady eddy. It hasn’t missed in 5 years.

2. L Brands (LB - Free Report) has been hot with tweens and teens as its Pink line has done well. But is growth slowing?

3. Applied Materials (AMAT - Free Report) is near 5-year highs going into its report.

4. Williams-Sonoma (WSM - Free Report) has found success with West Elm but will its flagship brand get out of the doldrums?

All four of these companies should be on your short list if you’re trading the earnings report.
