This is the first big week of earnings season and that means we’ll get a lot of big cap companies reporting, including several Dow components.
While many continue with their hot streaks, with shares trading at or near new multi-year highs, there are others that have struggled over the past year.
The energy stocks continue to be hated by Wall Street. And some big industrial names are also in the doghouse.
