Adobe, Broadcom, Dollar General, Oracle and More Major Earnings Coming This Week

This past week has been full of volatility, and the week before that was the worst week for the U.S. broad markets since the financial crisis. With supply chain concerns across the globe and a general slowdown in business, there were massive swings in markets over the course of the week. The fundamental threat of the COVID-19 is very real for American businesses, and it is vastly overtaking other market fundamentals, sending everything lower.

Although earnings and other fundamentals are taking a backseat in the markets right now, they will be an important measure when the markets exit this scare. The fourth-quarter earnings reporting season is winding down, but a few more major companies will be sharing their results soon. Here, 24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of a few of the most anticipated quarterly reports due this week.
