We’ve been banging the drum loudly over the last few weeks highlighting the extremely high earnings beat rates and upside guidance numbers so far this season. Using our Earnings Explorer tool, through yesterday, 940 companies had reported Q3 numbers since the reporting period began on October 12th. Of these, 84% beat consensus analyst EPS estimates while 77% beat consensus revenue estimates. At the same time, 17% of companies have raised forward guidance while just 3% have lowered guidance.
Long-term Bespoke subscribers know how much we like earnings triple plays, but for those that haven’t heard of the term, we came up with it back in the mid-2000s. An earnings triple play is a company that beats EPS estimates, beats revenue estimates, and raises forward guidance all in the same quarterly earnings report. Investopedia.com is one of the best online resources for financial markets education, and they’ve actually given us credit for coining the “triple play” term on their website. We consider triple play stocks to be the cream of the crop of earnings season, and we are constantly finding new long-term buy opportunities from this basket of names each quarter.
This earnings season there have already been a massive number of earnings triple plays. We went through the list of this season’s triple plays to find the ones that currently have the most attractive set-ups. Today we have identified 37 stocks that made the cut.
