Read MoreHide Full Article

This is the busiest week of the earnings season with over 1000 companies expected to report.

There are still many big cap, well-known companies expected to report but we’ll also start hearing from many small and mid-cap names. They will be coming at you in waves.

These five companies represent some of the less followed companies but which are in industries that many have an interest in, including a company with a way to play the changes in the marijuana laws, the fertilizer companies, and several consumer goods makers.

Some have great earnings track records, and others don’t. But these are 5 that you will want to tune into this week.

5 Must-See Earnings Charts

1.    Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG - Free Report) makes a potting soil specifically for marijuana plants. It is one of the few publicly traded “pot stocks.” However, it has missed earnings two quarters in a row and shares have fallen 26% year-to-date. Is this a buying opportunity?

2.    SodaStream hasn’t missed on earnings since 2015. That’s an impressive streak. Shares have soared off the 2015 lows and are also up another 24% in 2018. But are they now too hot to handle?

3.    Nutrien (NTR - Free Report) is the combined Potash and Agrium agribusiness giant. It has missed three quarters in a row. Shares have struggled in 2018, falling about 1% year-to-date. Will this quarter be the start of the fertilizer turnaround? Or will the tariff issues hit this industry hard?

4.    Wayfair (W - Free Report) has missed on earnings three quarters in a row. But shares have soared 36% in 2018. Is this another one of those companies where the earnings miss/beat doesn’t really matter to investors?

5.    Groupon (GRPN - Free Report) is coming off its first earnings miss since 2015. Shares haven’t gone anywhere in 2018, as they have fallen 9% in that time. Was the Groupon turnaround story premature?
