In today’s Report, James Dunn analyses the companies reporting earnings over the next seven days – who to look out for, what the market is expecting, and the non-financial measures the market will use to judge the quality.
In this article, I want to focus on the four companies that I think could make or break reporting season. Two report this week, while the other two don’t report until the last week of February. Each is important enough in its own right (albeit for different reasons), as well as being a barometer for market sentiment, such that a credible report will be a fillip to the whole market and help drive it higher. Conversely, a poor result could dent market confidence. Here are the four to watch – and why they are so important.
