Read MoreHide Full Article

This is the first big week of earnings season and that means we’ll get a lot of big cap companies reporting, including several Dow components.

We’re also hearing from some companies that you might not pay much attention to, but you should. They run the gamut of industries from drug manufacturers, to equipment plays, paint and coatings, high end tool providers and pool products.

But these companies all have something else in common: great earnings surprise track records.

It’s not easy to beat every quarter for years. There is just a couple dozen companies that have perfect records. Even one miss, however, is an impressive track record and hard to maintain.

These are some of the best earnings charts of those companies reporting this week.

5 Amazing Earnings Charts This Week

  1. Abbott Labs (ABT - Free Report) has a perfect record and the shares have finally broken out to new highs. 2018 has been a little dicey though. Will another earnings beat help the shares regain momentum?
  2. United Rentals (URI - Free Report) has missed just once in the last 5 years. Shares have rallied on hopes that the Congress would pass a big infrastructure plan which would boost this big equipment lender.
  3. PPG Industries (PPG - Free Report) hasn’t missed in 5 years but shares have been stuck in a narrow trading range the last 3 years. What will take them to new heights?
  4. Snap-On (SNA - Free Report) hasn’t missed in 5 years either but the shares are also stalled in a narrow trading range. It looked like they might break out to start the year but, instead, they have sunk to the low end of the range. Will the corporate tax cuts help the stock regain momentum?
  5. Pool Corporation (POOL - Free Report) specializes in pools and pool products. It has missed only once in the last 5 years and shares are near 5-year highs. With the consumer feeling good, and looking for leisure and experiences, Pool could be perfectly positioned to benefit.
