Will Earnings Cheer Continue This Week? All Eyes On Disney, Palantir, Robinhood While Reddit Gears Up For Debut Quarterly Report

Zinger Key Points
  • S&P 500 companies' blended year-over-year earnings are on to track to report 5% growth, the fastest since Q2'2022.
  • The unfolding week will witness the release of earnings from 56 S&P 500 companies, including one Dow component.

Earnings reports and a dovish stance from the Federal Reserve lifted stocks last week. Major indices reacted positively, particularly to earnings from high-profile companies that hold significant weight in the indexes.

Tech Giants Lead Charge: Apple, Inc. AAPL and Amazon, Inc. AMZN were top performers. Apple impressed investors with a record $110 billion stock buyback plan and better-than-expected guidance for the June quarter.

According to FactSet, a financial data analytics firm, 80% of S&P 500 companies have reported earnings so far. These reports have shown a higher-than-average percentage of companies exceeding earnings expectations and by a larger margin than usual.

FactSet estimates that S&P 500 companies’ blended year-over-year earnings growth is currently at 5%, up from 3.5% the prior week. This is the highest growth rate since Q2 2022.

Eight out of eleven S&P 500 sectors are experiencing earnings growth. Communication services, utilities, consumer discretionary, and IT are leading the pack, while energy, healthcare, and materials are lagging behind.
