Let's observe what's going on with two major indices right now!
PepsiCo, Citi, BAC reporting - results preview
Information is not investment advice
PepsiCo: better than the forecast
The EPS of $1.21 beats the expectation of $1.12; the revenue of $14.82bln beats the expectation of $14.55
The figures brought by PepsiCo are better than observers thought so the move will be likely bullish for this stock. However, the difference between the forecast and the actual data is not that big, that's why bulls won't be likely to push it much - most probably, the stock will rise above the 50-MA into the channel $143-145.
Bank of America: impressively good
The EPS of $0.86 beats the expectation of $0.66; the revenue of $22.9bln beats the expectation of $22.1bln.
The Bank of America's data by far exceeded the expectation, so bulls will likely push the price above the all-time high of $40.30 which is just 1% away from the last price when the market closed yesterday - $41 may be a possible target.
Citigoup: unexpected success
The EPS of $3.62 beats the expectation of $2.24; the revenue of $19.3bln beats the expectation of $18.82bln.
For Citigroup, most observers expected a pretty weak performance. Now, as the bank reports stronger data, its stock may well surge above the local highs of $74.25 and pick up a new uptrend towards $76.00.
While Citigroup reports better-than-expected quarterly data, it is also aims at restructuring its global presence. What will be the impact?
As the earnings season kicks in, JPMorgan is the first to impress us with the better-than-expected data!
