Earnings Season is a window of time (usually around 6 weeks) where most publicly traded companies are reporting their financial results to investors.
Earnings season usually begins 2-3 weeks after each calendar quarter, and lasts for around 6 weeks. A typical set of active earnings seasons would look something like this during a year.
Jan 15 – Feb 28
Apr 15 – May 31
Jul 15 – Aug 31
Oct 15 – Nov 30
During each earnings season, every publicly traded company will report their financial results one time.
Each earnings report is highly anticipated by Wall Street and can have a major, immediate impact on the stock price of the company.
