    [$$] Investors brace for hectic week of corporate reporting

    Some 40 per cent of the companies listed on the S&P 500 index of US stocks are due to report second-quarter results this week, with more than 60 of those updating the market on Wednesday, the busiest day of the quarter, according to data from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Wall Street analysts have been busy scrambling to update forecasts for this week’s earnings after a record proportion of the early reporters beat market expectations on earnings per share and sales last week, according to BAML. Investors have responded with a muted reaction to outperformance — with companies that outperformed earnings and revenues expectations only rising 1 percentage point more than the market the following day — but punishing underperformers who miss expectations more heavily than usual, with their stocks lagging the market by an average of four percentage points, according to BAML.
