JPMorgan, Wells Fargo and More Kicking Off Earnings Season This Week

Print Email

24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of the major companies scheduled to report their quarterly results this coming week. The broad markets closed out last week with the Dow and S&P 500 holding near all-time highs. However, the Nasdaq has fallen off but could stand to make a handy recovery. A strong earnings showing from these stocks could help the markets reach even higher highs.

The main companies reporting this week are banks, which always kick off the earnings season. Although only three major banks are reporting this week, the rest will be coming along very shortly.

Generally speaking, financial stocks have made solid gains thus far in 2017, with a tremendous tailwind from the Trump rally. In fact, in the past 52 weeks, most of these major money center banks have posted incredible gains. Also, with more rate hikes from the Federal Reserve on the horizon, these banks could keep running.
