    Upcoming Earnings Reports

    By Stock Charts | April 14, 2007

    Here are some notable earnings reports to watch for the upcoming week of 4/16/07 – 4/20/07:

    Monday, 4/16/07

    Tuesday, 4/17/07

    Wednesday, 4/18/07

    Thursday, 4/19/07

    Friday, 4/20/07

    Many of these stocks are pretty good indicators of overall industry as well as economic trends (Intel/AMD, JP Morgan/Merril, Yahoo/Google, etc.) so their reports may provide some bearing on where the industry is headed. JP Morgan and Merril are expected to beat estimates easily, given the strong performance of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. An interesting duo to watch would be Yahoo and Google, as both search engine rivals have been gearing up for war with a flurry of recent acquisitions and partnerships. Another one to keep on the watchlists is Evergreen Solar, as the alternative energy sector has been heating up lately.

    However, I wouldn’t recommend buying right before earnings. It’s really hard to say how investors will react to an earnings report. Even if the company is expected to beat estimates easily, this expectation may already be built into the stock price.

    Disclosure: I currently own shares of GOOG, YHOO, and CAT.

      I just discovered your site and I like it. I’ll definitely be back.

      I am long GOOG and YHOO myself and I am feeling quite wary of holding YHOO through earnings this time around. With the stock price up over 20% in 2007 I have to wonder if all the good news isn’t already baked in. Not to mention that the stock has topped out in the low 30s about a half dozen times in the past year or so. Just wondering if you’re nervous to hold it through earnings?

      There’s always a bit of apprehension when holding a stock through earnings, but my positions in both YHOO and GOOG have been long term investments. I picked up YHOO mid December of last year, and so I’ve got a bit of a cushion. I still think Yahoo and Google both have a great deal of potential upside, so unless the report is earthshatteringly bad, I’ll probably ride it out. I see from your site that you’re a swing trader though; back when I used to trade in the short term I would always sell at least half my position before earnings to lock in gains.

      My blog is dedicated to swing trading but I also maintain a core portfolio of longer term positions and that’s where GOOG and YHOO preside. In the interest of full disclosure, I sold YHOO this morning. I had a 20% gain in it and I didn’t want to risk giving back the gain based on one earnings report. That said the stock is probably just as likely to go up as down after the announcement…

      Good move. As it were, I closed half my position as well. Will probably be moving the rest to Google if their report is encouraging.
