This is a big week for earnings with over 1000 companies expected to report, including many FANGMAN stocks and other popular growth stocks.

Let’s be honest, most stock investors own some, or all, of the FANGMAN or FAANG stocks.

This week, Microsoft MSFT and Alphabet GOOGL, two of the largest companies in the world and FANGMAN stocks, will report earnings.

What Do Their Earnings Charts Look Like?

Microsoft hasn’t missed in 5 years. Given the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 and 2021, that’s an amazing track record.

Alphabet has beat 5 quarters in a row, with massive beats during the pandemic. It’s also situated to cash in on the return of global travel.

Are any analysts raising, or cutting, their earnings estimates heading into the report?

Analysts are usually cautious ahead of an earnings report. They loath being “wrong” so they usually don’t make changes to an estimate in the week before the earnings report unless they are really sure about the change: either really bullish or really bearish.

How sure are they about Microsoft and Alphabet?

Tune into the video to find out.

Time to Invest in Legal Marijuana

If you’re looking for big gains, there couldn’t be a better time to get in on a young industry primed to skyrocket from $17.7 billion back in 2019 to an expected $73.6 billion by 2027.

After a clean sweep of 6 election referendums in 5 states, pot is now legal in 36 states plus D.C. Federal legalization is expected soon and that could be a still greater bonanza for investors. Even before the latest wave of legalization, Zacks Investment Research has recommended pot stocks that have shot up as high as +285.9%.
