Many companies are reporting their earnings this week. Some may be hits or misses, but being informed about their chances can help an investor make their winning trade.
The upcoming days for earnings releases are really exciting. Many more and less well-known companies are reporting their earnings from November 12th to November 16th, 2018. The highlights are Walmart’s and Nvidia’s earnings releases.
Earnings release trading is more exciting and riskier than ordinary stock investing. There are incidences when even good reports can’t seem to sway the opinions of investors to the optimistic side. Nevertheless, some companies are capable of missing their earnings targets and still attracting a lot of investor attention.
Walmart’s earnings release will be very important for the whole retail industry. Nvidia, the leader of computer driver companies, will attract the attention of investors looking to invest in technology-related companies.
