Without fail, something that always gives investors an edge in the market is closely tracking company earnings.
Chief Investment Strategist, Louis Basenese, has a mantra that you’ll see throughout Wall Street Daily: “Share prices ultimately follow earnings.” It makes sense. After all, only companies that are raking in profits will garner investment interest. So during earnings season, we go on high alert.
