One of the biggest questions of earnings season is: will a company beat or miss?
This week's best earnings charts include companies who have perfect earnings surprise track records. They haven’t missed in years.
Despite what you might think, it’s not easy for companies to beat every quarter for years on end. Only a couple dozen companies are able to do it.
Here are three doing it this week:
1. American Airlines (AAL) has only been public again for a few years but it has strung together an impressive track record.
2. Lithia Motors (LAD) has been one of the best performing stocks over the last 5 years. It also has managed to beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate every single quarter. Will it do it again this quarter?
3. PayPal (PYPL) was spun off from eBay just a year ago. In that time, it has managed to surprise on the earnings four quarters in a row. But it hasn’t been smooth sailing on the shares.
What else should you know about these earnings charts? Tune into the short video to find out.
