We are done and dusted with another reporting season, and what a month it was. Stocks were heavily sold off on earnings misses, soared on earnings beats, and ended up pretty much where they started once the dust settled.
Throughout this earnings season, two themes stood out. Wages growth reigned supreme as a widespread headwind for many companies - not only those based in Western Australia but across the board, while previously inflated cost pressures finally started to abate.
According to FNArena, 32.8% of stocks missed earnings expectations, 38% were in line and 29.3% beat estimates over the past month.
So in this episode, Centennial Asset Management's Matthew Kidman was joined by Firetrail Investment's Blake Henricks and Market Matters' James Gerrish for their analysis of three stocks whose results shot the lights out during the February reporting season.
Plus, they also each name one company that disappointed investors with a less-than-desirable result.
