Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap 10.29.18

Typically, investors follow corporate earnings and look for solid growth. However, that hasn’t been the case during the current earnings season. As of Friday the 26th, 48% of the S&P 500 companies have reported third quarter earnings. Currently, year-over-year earnings growth is on pace to eclipse 20%, which would beat analyst’s expectations of 19% growth. Energy, Financials, Communication Services, Materials, Information Technology, Industrials, and Consumer Discretionary sectors have all posted year-over-year revenue growth north of 15%. Additionally, 77% of the reporting companies have posted a positive EPS surprise, while 59% have posted a positive sales surprise. The positive EPS surprise of 77% is above the five year average of 71%, while in aggregate, earnings have beat expectations by 6.5%, which beats the five year average of 4.6%.
