Next week we’ll officially kick off the Q1 earnings season as the major banks all start to report results. As shown in the chart to the right, the pace of reports will start off slow but steadily pick up steam as the days go on. Just 23 companies are scheduled to report next week, but that number will more than triple the next week and then more than double again the week of 4/26 which is the peak week for reports. There will be one more busy week of reports after that before things start to peter out after the first week of May.
