In this episode, the coaches discuss how they approach earnings reports as an investor. We are in the heart of earnings season now, where this week we see nearly 25% of the S&P 500 companies report their results. Earnings can create price gaps, some big, some small, and some predictable while others are not.
Listen in as Coaches Tim, Matt, Mark, Emily, and Tyler discuss how they approach earnings reports, whether they avoid them, why they decide to collar or hedge when they do, and in what circumstances they do nothing and accept the volatility risk. We also go through some examples of companies that have upcoming earnings as case studies to discuss how we might approach them.
Before that, we discuss the broad market conditions during our market skyline. Stocks remain bullish in general, but we’ve seen some areas of the market exhibit relative strength. The technology, communications, and consumer cyclical sectors have outperformed recently, while energy has lagged in the short term. Will that theme continue? Listen in as we discuss broad market conditions, sector rotation, and commodities during this weekly segment.
