The second quarter earnings season begins next Monday when Alcoa (AA) reports after the close. But as shown below, the bulk of reports don't come until the week of July 23rd through July 27th. Next week, just 30 companies in total are set to report. On July 26th alone, more than 10x that amount report. The peak day of the upcoming reporting period comes on August 2nd when 398 companies will release earnings.
For those interested in tracking upcoming earnings reports, over at Bespoke Premium, we offer an Interactive Earnings Season Calendar (sample below) that members use religiously. The calendar is unique in that it not only highlights the expected report dates, time of day and current EPS estimates for all of the companies set to report over the next month, but it also provides historical earnings report data for each stock. For each stock in the calendar, we show its historical earnings and revenue beat rate, its historical guidance patterns, and finally, how the stock has historically traded in reaction to its reports.
To check out the calendar and see if it's something for you, below is an abbreviated version of it that shows just the stocks that are expected to report earnings over the next week. To access the full calendar on a regular basis, become a Bespoke Premium member today.
