  • Better-than-expected results for the week once again lift S&P 500 EPS growth for Q1 2023, now set to come in at -2.2%
  • Potential earnings surprises this week: PerkinElmer (PKI), Air Canada (CA:AC)
  • Names to watch during the third peak week: DIS, TWLO, UAA, DDS, ABNB
  • Thursday, May 11 will mark the busiest day of the season with 991 companies scheduled

As the second peak week of earnings season kicked off last week it was obvious that investor attention was focused elsewhere, both on the mounting banking crisis as well as on the Federal Reserve’s Wednesday meeting. While the Fed’s 25 basis point interest rate hike and suggestion of a near-term pause was what the markets were expecting, stocks moved lower on Wednesday as investors digested comments by Chairman Powell.

They continued their decline on Thursday after news from PacWest showed the California bank was assessing strategic options, which led to the sell-off of regional bank shares and briefly brought the Dow Jones Industrial Average negative for the year. That all turned around Thursday after the close as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) delivered better-than-expected results for Q1 and regional banks climbed from their lows, helping the all major indexes close higher on Friday. 

In addition to Apple, positive surprises were seen for other big names such as MGM Resorts (NYSE:MGM), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX), Ford Motor (NYSE:F), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) and more, driving the S&P 500 blended EPS growth rate to -2.2%, an improvement from -3.7% in the week prior. Revenue growth for the quarter is positive at 3.9%. 

Potential Earnings Surprises this Week - PKI & CA:AC

PerkinElmer (PKI)

  • Company Confirmed Report Date: Thursday, May 11, BMO
  • Projected Report Date (based on historical data): Tuesday, May 2, BMO
  • DateBreaks Factor: -2*

PerkinElmer (NYSE:PKI) is set to report Q1 2023 results on Thursday, May 11, nine days later than anticipated. This will be the latest PKI has ever reported earnings for the first quarter.  

Academic research shows when a corporation reports earnings later than they have historically, it typically signals bad news to come on the conference call. PKI has reported negative earnings growth for the last five consecutive quarters, and either negative or flat revenue growth over the same time period. The stock is down 8.25% YTD. 

Air Canada (CA:AC)

  • Company Confirmed Report Date: Friday, May 12, BMO
  • Projected Report Date (based on historical data): Tuesday, April 25, BMO
  • DateBreaks Factor: -2*

Air Canada (TSX:AC) is set to report Q1 2023 results on Friday, May 12, over two weeks later than expected.  Like PerkinElmer, this is potentially indicative that less than stellar news will be shared on the upcoming earnings call. 

Poor earnings results or guidance from Air Canada would fly in the face of what we’ve seen with the large international carriers such as Delta, American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) and United which all reported better-than-expected results for Q1 and noted the strength in travel demand as well as record advanced bookings for this coming summer. After falling 23% from mid-February - mid-March, Air Canada’s stock improved on Thursday as they released updated 2023 guidance that pointed to a recovery ahead due to a “stronger-than-anticipated demand environment and lower-than expected fuel prices.” This suggests that any bad news reported in Friday’s Q1 report may just be backward-looking.

On Deck this Week: 

During this last peak week of earnings season we expect to see 3,236 companies in our universe of nearly 10,000 global equities release results for the first quarter. We’ll continue to hear from enterprise tech names such as Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), get a read on the consumer when Airbnb (NASDAQ:ABNB), Under Armour (NYSE:UAA), Warby Parker (NYSE:WRBY), Tapestry (NYSE:TPR) and Dillards (NYSE:DDS) all report, and of course hear about the state of streaming from Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS).
