What Investors Look For During Earnings Season
Earnings season is a greatly anticipated time for traders and investors. To add to the excitement of potential rapid price changes, the season brings with it a torrent of forecasts, analysis’ and news – from both companies themselves and other media sources.
The new quarter has started with significant volatility due to impactful geopolitical events and news. Tesla celebrated its launch of its Model Y, the company’s first vehicle that would be produced in Europe, with almost a 20.5% increase in its stock price in just the first few days of the new year.
This year Adidas has announced a continuation of its buyback program, with a 1 Billion Euro buyback in 2020, giving us a bit of an indication of the company’s financial health.
Last year many of the stocks easyMarkets offered saw substantial and sustained growth.
