As we do each week during earnings season, below is a list of the largest companies set to report earnings next week (10/21-10/25). Along with its expected report date and time, for each stock we also highlight the percentage of the time it has beaten earnings and revenue estimates over the last ten years as well as its average one-day price change on its report days. For companies that report before the open, we use that day's change. For companies that report after the close, we use the next day's change.

(This data is pulled from our widely-used Interactive Earnings Report Database, which has in-depth quarterly earnings report analysis for nearly 3,000 US stocks.)

On Monday we'll hear from McDonald's (MCD) and Halliburton (HAL) in the morning and Texas Instruments (TXN) after the close. Netflix (NFLX), which is not on the list below, also reports on Monday after the close. Tuesday we get reports from United Tech (UTX), Lockheed Martin (LMT) and Amgen (AMGN). Boeing (BA), Caterpillar (CAT) and AT&T (T) all report on Wednesday, while 3M (MMM), Ford (F), Amazon.com (AMZN) and Microsoft (MSFT) will release numbers on Thursday. Procter & Gamble (PG) and UPS cap off the week with reports on Friday morning.

Of the stocks listed below, UTX, LMT, ABBV, ACE and NOV have the highest earnings beat rates, while F, BEN, ABBV and SPG have the highest revenue beat rates. In terms of price reaction, HAL, UTX, EMC, CELG, ACE, AMZN, MCK, ESRX and ABBV have historically done the best on their report days, while MSFT, DD, STT, MCD and MO have done the worst. Amazon.com (AMZN) is by far the most volatile of the big stocks reporting earnings next week with an average one-day change of +/-9.94% on its past report days.
