Today's video focuses on what to watch during upcoming earnings for Microsoft (MSFT 0.92%), Advanced Micro Devices (AMD -0.34%), Spotify (SPOT 1.23%), and Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL 1.89%) (GOOG 1.44%). Here are some highlights from the video. 

  1. Alphabet, Microsoft, and AMD all report earnings on Tuesday. The stock prices for these three companies are either at or near all-time highs. Spotify, which reports on Wednesday, is down over 30% from its all-time highs.
  2. Alphabet will be the one many investors are watching after the disappointing results Snap (SNAP 0.78%) gave on Thursday. Investors should note how much recent changes to user tracking have affected Google's ability to provide robust advertising solutions to its consumers. 
  3. Intel's (INTC 1.53%) stock price plummeted after the company reported a slowdown in its PC-centric business due to component shortages. AMD investors should watch how the recent shortage affects the company's business in consumer chips.
