Earnings season isn’t over yet. There’s over 400 companies reporting earnings again this week including the always popular restaurant companies as well as other top consumer names.

With unemployment at a multi-decade low, GDP inching higher and tax cuts for both corporations and individual tax payers pumping more cash into the economy, you’d think it would be a good time to be in a consumer-focused business.

But competition is fierce, whether or not its in restaurants, retail or fitness.  

Which companies should you be watching this week?

5 Earnings Charts to Watch

1.    MindBody (MB - Free Report) hasn’t missed earnings since its 2105 IPO. That’s a great record. Shares are new multi-year highs. Will it grow subscribers fast enough to keep the momentum?

2.    Wayfair (W - Free Report) missed only twice since its 2014 IPO but the bigger question is: when will it actually see positive earnings?

3.    First Solar (FSLR - Free Report) has beat 10 quarters in a row and shares have rebounded. Is the rally over?

4.    Garmin (GRMN - Free Report) has beat 8 quarters in a row and shares are at 5-year highs.

5.    Planet Fitness (PLNT - Free Report) hasn’t missed since its 2015 IPO. Shares have busted out of their narrow trading range and are near the all-time highs. Will it keep its earnings surprise track record this quarter?
