With the heart of earnings season less than a week away, investors are hoping first quarter earnings can reconcile some of their losses. Fourth quarter earnings were largely disappointing, with the names making a splash far and few between. This trend is likely to continue for a number of companies over the next few weeks.
Using a combination of revisions activity, projected growth and historical beat rate, Estimize has compiled a list of potential winners and losers for Q1. Those likely to disappoint include GoPro, Yelp and Chevron. However, it won't be bad for everyone and ahead of earnings season, Facebook, Lending Tree and Alibaba are poised to top expectations.
