5 Monster Earnings Predictions For the Week of July 29

Between earnings and economic data, it will be a busy week for investors. So far earnings this season have been coming in better than expected. According to the latest data from S&P Dow Jones, 43% of S&P 500 companies have reported results. Of those, 76.5% have topped estimates, with 15.2% missing estimates and 8.3% meeting estimates. That is better than last quarters results and is running ahead of the historical averages.
