Companies to Consider That Are Reporting Earnings Thursday

 |  Includes: DHT, FCS, GOOG, JPM, YUM
by: Robert Weinstein

Once again we are moving into earnings season. With the federal budget and debt worries, along with Europe having its own issues we can expect some wild price movements in the very near future. Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is always interesting and I would expect when it reports it could be very market moving. We have other notable companies reporting on the same day which will keep investors and traders very busy.

I use a proprietary blend of technical analysis, financial crowd behavior and fundamentals in my short-term trades, and while not totally the same in longer swing trades to investments, the concepts used are similar. The shorter the term the more emphasis I give to market sentiment or what many call technical analysis. You may want to use this article as a starting point of your own research with your financial planner. I use Seeking Alpha, Edgar Online, Goggle Finance, MSN Money, cnbc.com, Zacks and Yahoo Finance for most of my data and do not always double check it with the SEC filings. I use earnings.com for my list of symbols. The following is the "confirmed" symbols that I believe to be of the most interest. I also include some that are not "confirmed" but are "proposed" for the same day. The numbers are only as good as the sources. Many of the ADRs that are relatively new provide a special challenge that can be very time consuming to figure out the "best" number. Chinese ADRs that are new seem to be especially prone to conflicts with Reuters, EDGAR Online and other sources.

Google Inc. is a $169.92 billion market cap company.
