A new earnings reporting season kicks off this week, with the big banks leading the way. Although coronavirus concerns have been minimized as the broad markets have stabilized, there still will be an impact on these reports.
Banks will be central in leading the economic recovery, through small business lending, among other things. The numbers that these institutions post will be an important barometer for what comes next.
