Print Email

The U.S. broad markets rallied this week to break their two-week losing streak. Crude oil helped in that regard, pushing over the $70 a barrel price level and providing a handy boost to energy stocks. Tech and financial stocks also helped push the markets higher. Although most companies already have reported earnings, there are a few big Dow stocks coming this week and a handful of retailers to look out for.

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.
