Alphabet, Amazon, Ford and More Major Earnings Coming This Week

Over the past month, we’ve seen an absolute roller-coaster of volatility in the markets, which has been the result of supply chain concerns across the globe and a general slowdown in business, all due to the coronavirus pandemic. The fundamental threat of the COVID-19 is very real for American businesses, and it is vastly overtaking other market fundamentals, sending everything lower. Yet, this past week was relatively positive.

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 crisis. Earnings season is underway, and some big names are reporting soon. Here, 24/7 Wall St. has put together a preview of a few of the most anticipated quarterly reports due this week. (Also see our separate preview of Boeing, Microsoft, Visa and other Dow Jones industrials reporting earnings this week.)
