Earnings season is finally underway and we’ve had some mixed results so far. Family Dollar and Costco both had very positive reports to offer investors which could be positive for retail outlets. Although I expect that consumers are still looking for a discount and those that can meet that demand will continue to excel. Time will tell.
There is still a lot to come this week. Bank earnings start tomorrow with Wells Fargo and a few others which should be really interesting.
Here are a few blog posts I’ve been reading this week:
