Nearly 1,000 companies have reported earnings so far this earnings season through October 28th, 2016.  Of the companies that have reported, 67% have beaten their consensus analyst earnings per share estimates.  As shown in the first chart below, that’s a very strong beat rate.  If earnings season were to end today, it would be the highest beat rate since Q4 2009.

The top-line revenue beat rate is much lower than the earnings beat rate, however.  As shown in the second chart below, just 55% of companies have reported stronger than expected revenue numbers.  That’s just a tad lower than the final reading of 56% from last quarter.
