Earnings season continues to roll on with over 500 companies expected to report this week.
This week’s companies are in a bunch of industries including marijuana, retail, semiconductors and consumer discretionary such as beverages and restaurants.
But it’s not easy to beat on the estimate every quarter, or nearly every quarter, for years. It takes great management and good communication with the covering analysts.
These 5 companies have put together great earnings surprise track records.
Can they do it again?
5 Stocks with Fantastic Earnings Charts
1. Twilio (TWLO - Free Report) hasn’t missed since its 2016 IPO. Shares have soared to start 2019. Can it keep up this incredible momentum? Or is it too hot to handle?
2. Activision Blizzard (ATVI - Free Report) has only missed once since Zacks data began in 2015. The shares, however, plunged to end 2018 and continue to be weak. Is this a buying opportunity?
3. Canada Goose (GOOS - Free Report) hasn’t missed since its 2017 IPO. Shares sold off along with many of the growth stocks to end 2018 but it has rebounded off those lows. It will be reporting its holiday quarter. Will it be another big beat?
4. CME Group (CME - Free Report) has only missed once since 2014. Take a look at that chart. What a beauty! It is the best chart of the week. Shares have taken a breather in the last few months but will this earnings report provide a boost to send them to new 5-year highs?
5. Applied Materials (AMAT - Free Report) sold off in 2018 on fears about the supply/demand dynamic in the semiconductor industry. The shares have bounced off the 2018 lows. AMAT hasn’t missed in 5 years. Impressive. Will its guidance give semiconductor investors hope that the cycle has bottomed?
