Earnings Season Strategies

Earnings season strategies are all important when it comes to profiting from earnings predictions. These predictions made by Wall Street analysts are one of the main drivers of stock price action around the earnings release dates; and companies are judged by their ability to beat market expectations. These consensus estimates, in relation to the actual reported earnings, is one of the main points of focus for investors and traders.

There is usually plenty of potential volatility that may occur before and after an earnings announcement; and an understanding that stocks can fall on good earnings and rise on poor earnings is important when establishing or managing a stock or option position.

The “Trump rally” provided for a strong Q1 earnings season; and now, some very favorable economic reports recently will help continue to drive stock prices up, yet again. Bear in mind that the market indexes are at an all-time high due to the extended bull rally; and the Q2 season occurs in the summer, where trading normally sees lower volume on earnings performance which may mute some price fluctuation when companies report earnings.

Even so, there is a strong market directly ahead, likely to be stoked by positive earnings results. While the second quarter estimate is lower, it still should be a strong quarter, and the 4th quarter in a row that shows positive earnings momentum.
