General Electric (NYSE: GE) will report first-quarter results on Tuesday before the bell. Analysts predict earnings of $0.09 per share on revenue of $27.05 billion.

Mcdonald’s Corp. (NYSE: MCD) will post Q1 results on Tuesday. Analysts project the company to report earnings of $1.76 per share on revenue of $4.93 billion. The results will be hurt by higher operating costs and expenses as well as an increase in provision for income taxes. The top line is likely to be impacted by the strategic refranchising initiative. However, comparable sales could increase positive comps across all segments.

General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) is set to post first-quarter results on Tuesday. Analysts project earnings to fall 22.40% to $1.11 per share due to restructuring charges as well as higher costs and expenses. Revenue is predicted to decline 2.50% to $35.21 billion as the ongoing slump in the demand for passenger vehicles weighed on the quarterly performance. Vehicle deliveries declined year-over-year in the US as buyers continued to dump conventional cars in favor of SUVs and trucks.
Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) will report Q1 earnings on Tuesday. Analysts see a profit of $0.75 per share on revenue of $12.99 billion. The results will be hurt by weak results from its Innovative Health segment and Essential Health segment. The company is likely to be busy with important clinical data readouts across its early-, mid- and late-stage pipeline. This is expected to hurt the quarterly results as more costs are incurred due to clinical trials.
Merck & Co. Inc. (NYSE: MRK) could post Q1 results on Tuesday. Earnings are anticipated to be in line with last year at $1.05 per share and revenue is likely to rise 4.40% to $10.48 billion. The company’s results are anticipated to be driven by higher top-line growth and management of costs and expenses. The strength in oncology and vaccines could drive the Pharmaceutical segment. The higher sales of companion animal and livestock products along with newly launched products could drive the Animal Health segment.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) will report Q2 earnings on Tuesday after the bell. Analysts see a profit of $2.36 per share on revenue of $57.44 billion.

In order to tackle faltering sales, the company reduced its prices of iPhones in China.
As Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) announces Q1 results on Tuesday, analysts expect earnings of $0.05 per share on revenue of $1.26 billion. The results will be hurt by the underperformance of the Computing and Graphics segment caused by lower Ryzen processors sales. The company had expected continued softness in the graphics channel and seasonality across the business. The graphics sales will be impacted by the excess channel inventory, the absence of blockchain-related GPU revenue and lower memory sales.
CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) will announce first-quarter earnings on Wednesday before the bell. Analysts expect earnings to rise 1.40% to $1.5 per share and revenue to jump 32.30% to $60.47 billion. The top line will be benefited by the increases in pharmacy network claims and prescription volumes in the Pharmacy Services and Retail/LTC segments, as well as the addition of Aetna. An increase in costs and expenses are likely to narrow down the top line growth
Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) will report second-quarter results on Wednesday after the bell. Analysts predict earnings of $0.71 per share on revenue of $4.8 billion. The results will be negatively impacted by its dispute with Apple and its contract manufacturers as well as a charge related to the tax act.
