Today Alcoa (AA) will report earnings after the market closes. Alcoa’s earnings report will officially kick off the 4th Quarter earnings season. I’ve compiled a list of dates and times for various earnings reports that I will be following during the Q4 earnings season.
Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD)- February 4. The stock was trading in the 80s during the fall, then stock traded in the low 70s lately due to negative Q3 earnings news. The fundamentals for this company look somewhat mediocre and it should be interesting to see if they report upbeat Q4 news.
Facebook (FB)- January 30. I definitely wouldn’t invest in Facebook. The valuation is sky high and the stock has a high P/E ratio at 150. However, I am interested to see if Facebook can monetize their rapidly growing mobile users.
Caterpillar (CAT)- January 28. Caterpillar reported record profits during Q3. It should be interesting to see if Q4 was also a record for CAT.
LSI (LSI)- January 19. Marvell (MRVL), LSI’s main rival, has been accused of infringing patents owned by Carnegie Melon University. Marvell could potentially have 1.17 billion dollars, which would be a record. LSI has benefited from Marvell woes. Their earnings could possibly beat expectations because of Marvell.
SciClone Pharmaceuticals (SCLN)- March 13. The company reported disappointing earnings during Q3. They lowered the expectations for 2013. It will interesting to see if they can top these lowered expectations.
