Good morning Rebels! Happy Friday! What an incredible week it has been for the bulls. We saw 175 companies in the S&P 500 report earnings — many of them missed on several metrics, and yet as long as there was something positive about the report, many of them still managed to put up gains on the news. Thursday night’s earnings were a great example.
July 28-29 Earnings Results
Amazon — Investors look past the short term EPS miss
AMZN Revenue: $121.2B v $119.7B Expected (Beat)
AMZN EPS: -$0.20 v $0.15 Expected (Miss)
Despite the EPS miss, AMZN is currently higher by more than 10% in the premarket.
Apple — Earnings beat, CEO upbeat
AAPL Revenue: $83B v $82B Expected (Beat)
AAPL EPS: $1.20 v $1.14 Expected (Beat)
Apple CEO Tim Cook said that he has yet to see any evidence of macroeconomic impact on the iPhone business. Apple rose 2.5% off the news.
Roku — Roku investors go broku after steep earnings miss
ROKU Revenue: $764M v $804M Expected (Miss)
ROKU EPS: -$0.82 v -$0.78 Expected (Miss)
Roku also lowered guidance. Roku is currently the number one holding in Cathie Woods flagship ETF, ARKK, with a higher spot than Tesla. Ark Funds bought 584,540 shares of Roku for more than $46 million dollars just two days ago, and have issued a 2026 price target of $605 in the name. Currently, shares of Roku are down by more than 25% in the premarket, now trading well below their previous 52 week low.
Intel — Earnings miss leads to stock decline, investors hope 5-year low provides support
INTC Revenue: $15.3B v $17.9B Expected (Miss)
INTC EPS: $0.29 v $0.69 Expected (Big Miss)
The question on chip investors minds: Has the demand for semiconductors slowed, or are AMD and Nvidia taking over? And will the chips act give any boost to Intel, or is its impact already priced in?
Intel is down 11.03% on the news, placing the share price almost directly on top of its 52 week (and 5 year) low. A break below that level could get ugly. But CEO Pat Gelsinger doesn’t think that’ll happen. Pat said, he is “confident this is the bottom”.
If Thursday night was all about tech, Friday morning earnings were all about energy.
