Earnings season is a time of the year when most publicly traded companies release their quarterly financial results. It means they open their books to the world, showing them how they have done in the past 3 months and what they think lies ahead for them.
Earnings season starts about two weeks after the end of the calendar quarter and the torrent of companies releases takes place over about six weeks. That means earnings releases begin around the middle of January, April, July, and October.
Even if you don’t hold shares of a specific company, you might still see fluctuations in your portfolio during earnings season. That’s because of the ripple effect one company’s results may have on others in its sector and the broader market
