Only about 120 companies are reporting earnings this week as earnings season winds down.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some big names, with some hot charts.
These five companies have great earnings surprise track records over the last 5 years. They rarely miss, which isn’t easy to do over a five-year period. Only a few companies are able to beat every quarter consistently.
Additionally, their shares have been on fire during that time, easily beating the return of the S&P 500 over that same period.
Will they beat again?
