Print Email

The broad markets were crushed this past week, suffering roughly a 4% drop. While it seems that we are seeing a correction with the Dow Jones industrials and S&P 500 in negative territory for 2018, the markets haven’t entirely decided to go lower. Each major loss seems to be punctuated with a small recovery the next day. 24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of some of the major companies due to post their quarterly results this week.

Also check out our separate preview of Apple, Pfizer and other Dow components reporting too.

We are in the midst of earnings season, during which most major companies report and set a direction for the market. Here we have included the consensus earnings estimates from Thomson Reuters and the stock price and trading history.
