NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- More than 100 companies report earnings this week including names like Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Google, and General Electric. This morning, we saw earnings from Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, and Charles Schwab. All 3 companies are trending on StockTwits right now and here's what people are saying:
1.) Coca-Cola (KO - Get Report) is planning to repurchase $2.5 to $3 billion shares this year. Its earnings were mediocre, being mostly inline. But the buyback could be seen as a much more interesting observation for the entire market. Who wants to be short in the middle of earnings season when companies are buying back shares? Don't ignore the buyback trend this earnings season. Coke is currently hitting its highest levels since January:

Johnson & Johnson (JNJ - Get Report) reported a notable beat and raise early this morning. But what's even more fascinating is the strength of JNJ. It's already right back near its all-time high of $99.38. Despite the fact that most major stock indices are red year-to-date, JNJ is actually up more than 6%. Now let's factor in this beat:
$JNJ reports Q1 adj. EPS $1.54, cons. $1.48; revs. $18.1B, cons. $18.0B; raises FY14 EPS to $5.80-$5.90, cons. $5.83. - Jan (@xtremezz) Apr. 15 at 08:01 AM
