Market Wrap-up for May 4 - Key Earnings Releases This Week

Jared Cummans May 04, 2015


As we reach the tail end of earnings season, there are still a handful of bellwethers left to report their results from the first quarter of 2015:


Monday


  • Anadarko Petroleum Liquid error: internal: After today’s closing bell, APC will be expected to show EPS of $-0.63 compared to a profit of $1.26 for the same period one year prior.


Tuesday


  • The Walt Disney Company (DIS ): After the closing bell, analysts are expecting to see EPS of $1.11 (compared to $1.11 last year) for DIS.
  • Archer Daniels Midland (ADM ): Analysts are expecting to see EPS of $0.71 in ADM’s pre-market report. That figure is a marked jump from the earnings of $0.55 one year ago.


Wednesday


  • Anheuser-Busch Inbev (BUD ): BUD will report prior to Wednesday’s opening bell where analysts are expecting to see EPS of $1.06 versus $0.87 for last year’s report.
  • Twenty-First Century Fox (FOX ): Analysts are expecting EPS of $0.40 in FOX’s after-market report. This compares to earnings of $0.47 one year prior.
  • Occidental Petroleum (OXY ): OXY is expected to show EPS of $0.02 in its pre-market earnings release. That number compares to earnings of $1.75 for the same quarter one year ago.


Thursday


  • Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ ): CNQ is expected to show EPS of $0.04 in its pre-market report. This compared to earnings of $0.65 one year ago.
  • CBS Corporation (CBS ): After Thursday’s close, analyst will expect to see EPS of $0.75 (compared to $0.78 the year prior) for CBS.
  • Apache Corporation (APA ): Analysts are expecting EPS of $-0.62 from APA’s pre-market report. Earnings for the same quarter last year were $1.78.


Friday


  • Health Care REIT (HCN ): Analysts are expecting EPS of $1.04 from HCN’s pre-market report. This is compared to earnings of $1.00 one year prior.


The Bottom Line: Markets on Edge


Last week’s U.S. GDP report came in significantly lower than expected, setting markets on edge. The last thing investors want to see is the economy screech to a halt with rates already at historic lows. Earnings will be especially under the microscope this week; the market will be hoping on strength from individual bellwethers to help boost sentiment on Wall Street.
