But the incoming earnings season will not only add volatility to the comparably calm market but also can become the reason for stocks to completely change their direction.

The final wave of the earnings season happens in the fourth week. There are not many companies in it, and this week of earnings is heavier on companies in the healthcare, real estate, industrials, materials, and utility sectors.
Some of the companies will be able to weigh in on the potential benefit from the long-awaited infrastructure package that’s still working its way through Congress.
Whether you’re a new or experienced investor, earnings season is always an interesting time to learn more about specific companies—and broader industry trends.
