US Tech Earnings FAQ

Why is earnings season important?

Public companies release their quarterly earnings over the course of a week or so, four times a year. Naturally, this means that traders gain access to all information at the same time. This often influences subsequent trends and decisions as traders seek to capitalize on the fresh revelations.

When is earnings season?

Each earnings season begins one or two weeks after the last month of each quarter (December, March, June, and September), so typically you can expect the majority of public companies to release their earnings in early to mid-January, April, July, and October.
