Trading Radar: Stocks Aim to Keep Earnings Momentum

By

Stay one step ahead of the rest.

Earnings will be in full focus next week as the majority of the S&P 500 will report second quarter results. Traders will be overwhelmed with reports from Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Caterpillar (CAT), Wells Fargo (WFC), Merck (MRK), Coca Cola (KO) and many more. So far companies have been beating big on the EPS and marginally on revenue.

The best quarter so far has been Intel (INTC) that's one of the reasons why the report worth watching is Microsoft (MSFT). Yes, the left for dead big cap tech company will have a lot of interesting things to say. For starters it released its widely heralded search engine Bing last quarter and coming up this fall it will released Windows 7 and a new version of Office. These three initiatives have investors buzzing about the Redmond Company.

What the company reports this quarter won't be truly important but the estimates for the current quarter estimates call for EPS of $0.36 on revenues of $14.38 bln. Guidance is the story here; a new PC upgrade cycle could be underway.
