From Coca-Cola To Tesla, Here Are The 68 Most Important Earnings Expectations For The Week
While many market-movers have already posted their most recent quarterly results, there are plenty more earnings on tap this week.
The consensus forecasts call for higher earnings at Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO), but earnings declines at Avon Products, Inc. (NYSE: AVP), Groupon Inc (NASDAQ: GRPN) and Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) when they take their turns in the earnings spotlight this week.
Here is a brief day-by-day run down of what analysts expect from these and some of the week's other most prominent reports.
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and Masco Corporation (NYSE: MAS) are expected to kick off the week in earnings by posting year-over-year growth on the bottom line before the opening bell, followed by Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC) later in the day.
However, the consensus forecasts for Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (NYSE: DO), Loews Corporation (NYSE: L) and Randgold Resources Ltd. (NASDAQ: GOLD) suggest profits will have diminished over the past quarter.
The fourth-quarter forecast for Coca-Cola calls for earnings per share (EPS) of $0.42 on revenue of $10.76 billion. In the same period of last year, the company posted EPS of $0.46 and revenue of $11.04 billion.
