Earnings Calendar and Comment: AAPL, CAT, PFE, AMGN, EBAY, WFC, AMZN, T, MCD, UPS, DOW, MSFT, SLB and Many More

earnings calendarIn order for the Bulls to continue the eighth month of this bear market rally, third-quarter earnings results will need to deliver against the current consensus of 24% year-over-year earnings declines. If any disappointments rise to the surface this week and show a prolonged recession in the cards, look for a period of consolidation or correction on the horizon. Stay nimble and break out your magnifying glasses this week — you’ll want to take a second look at the real numbers.
