Alibaba, CVS, Tesla and Other Earnings to Watch For This Week

April 29, 2018 by Trey Thoelcke

Despite pulling back a bit in the past week, the U.S. broad markets still are up 3% or so in the past month. Not to say that this has been entirely the result of earnings, but it’s been a big help, along with a strong push in crude oil as well. If we continue to see solid fundamentals from company earnings, markets should continue to rise.

24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of some of the top companies reporting their latest results in the coming week. We have included the consensus earnings estimates from Thomson Reuters, as well as the stock price and trading history for these companies ahead of the report.

Be advised that the earnings and revenue estimates may change ahead of the formal reports, and some companies may change reporting dates as well.

Also see our separate preview of the week’s Dow Jones industrials earnings reports, including Apple, McDonald’s and Pfizer.
