Earnings season has kicked into high gear, but many of tech and telecom's most important names have yet to report. As we look to next week, several major names, including Netflix, AT&T, Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN ) , and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) , are all set to report.
Analysts expect Microsoft to report some pretty impressive revenue growth for a company of its massive size. However, Microsoft's potential margin pressure might affect the bottom line, where analysts expect things to remain relatively flat this quarter. Especially after disappointing investors last quarter, it will be interesting to see whether Microsoft can recover in next's weeks report.
Shifting focus, analysts expect the story to largely remain the same when Amazon.com reports earnings on Thursday. Amazon is widely expected to maintain its heady topline growth rates, but, as has also been the case with Amazon.com, its earnings are expected to remain somewhat muted again this quarter.
In this video, tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner gives a brief earnings preview for the likes of Microsoft and Amazon.com as we head into yet another major week of earnings reports.
