There are over 800 companies reporting earnings this week but the focus will really be on the hot big cap stocks, including some Dow components.
While FANG stocks like Amazon and Facebook will take up a lot of oxygen, investors shouldn’t overlook a dozen big cap stocks that are also on everyone’s radar.
Many of these companies have beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate consistently over the past 5 years. That’s not easy to do.
Several of them are also trading near new multi-year highs. Are they too hot to handle?
