πŸ“ˆπŸ“ˆ Earnings Set for Release Prior to Market Open on 5.1.2019

Earnings Season is a quarterly event, a right of passage so to speak, that comes along every three months like clockwork.
Earnings season is the four times a year, celebrated several-week stretch from early January to early February, from early April to early May, from early July to early August, and from early October to early November in which the vast majority of the nation's corporations report their quarter's sales and earnings--hence the name earnings season.

This four-times-a-year event reflects the fact that U.S. corporations file such reports with the SEC on a quarterly basis. Since such reports are typically issued from two to five weeks after a quarter ends, and since the majority of U.S. corporations are on a calendar fiscal basis for reporting purposes, these are the four times during the year that companies report. The notable exception are the nation's retailers, which typically have their quarters end in late April, July, October, and January.
