Upcoming Must Watch Earnings

       We have already seen Netflix and Proctor and Gamble crush earnings in the last week. PG rose as much as 8% and Netflix rose 11%, but these next two weeks will be even bigger.. Some of the biggest companies in the world are expected to release earnings.. Including Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Visa, 3M company, Kimberly-Clark, Nasdaq INC, AT&T, Verizon and the list goes on and on.. But what companies earnings should you be watching besides the companies you are invested in?

1. Facebook (FB)

Everyone should be interested in Facebook's earnings. Last earnings call sunk the stock 23% in a couple of hours. Since then it has all been down hill for Facebook stock.. But I believe it is nothing but an over reaction.  Revenue is up 300 million per quarter since the end of 2017, they are spending 600 million more per quarter on R&D, assets are up 6 billion since 12/31/17 while debt is up just 600 Million.

They received more revenue per user than expected, and beat EPS estimated.. So why did it drop? Because they didn't hit the estimates for total new users in Europe. . #overreaction

2. Amazon, Google and Microsoft 

Everyone should be watching these three stocks because they have a combined market cap. of over 2.4 trillion dollars. Cut and dry these three stocks could send the market soaring.. or a massive decline. They represent 3 of the 4 biggest companies in the world and weigh so heavily on the S&P that every person invested should be listening to the conference call and reading the 10Q.

3. Snapchat and Twitter 
I'm not invested in either of these companies- But they are are in the same space of social media along with Facebook.

This may be the last straw for Snapchat investors. The stock is down 55% YTD, They have -3B in net income. Cost of revenue is outpacing revenue and their debt has doubled in 3 years.

Twitter on the other hands is starting to look like a young Facebook. They have all the financials heading in the right direction and the user total are increasing. I don't think it will ever get to the point that it will be as big as Facebook, but it will be nice to compare the three biggest social media platforms in the world.

4. Kimberly-Clark Corp.

I'm interested in this specific companies earnings because they are a direct competitor to one of my biggest investments- Proctor and Gamble. As a whole, the personal products industry has struggled, with the 5 largest personal products companies averaging just 1.77% increase in stock value in the last year.. And that includes the Proctor and Gamble 8% increase the other day. If Kimberly-Clark can rally and get a nice quarterly report it could put this industry back in the right direction.

5. AT&T and Verizon

After years and years of hype, 5G is finally becoming a reality. 5G is not just about faster smart phones, but also help with virtual reality, connected smart homes and smart cars. I am interested to see what the two biggest telecommunication companies say about it and each other.
