Tech makes way for energy and industrials in the earnings spotlight on Friday, with all the day’s reports coming before the opening bell.
Dow component Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) is expected to report a profit of $2.38 per share on revenue of about $13.5 billion, both down from the year-ago period, according to forecasts compiled by Investing.com.
But investors will likely be much more interested in comments about the current quarter and the impact of the coronavirus.
Exxon (NYSE:XOM) is seen reporting quarterly earnings of 48 cents per share on revenue of about $64 billion.
Chevron (NYSE:CVX) is expected to deliver a profit of $1.45 a share and revenue about $38 billion.
Consumer products giant Colgate-Palmolive (NYSE:CL) will also issue numbers.
Aon, Berkshire and Quantum are another part of the companies whose reports we will watch with interest.
