3 Earnings Reports Everyone Should Know About Tuesday: StockTwits

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:

$JNJ & $KO are each ~10% of their respective indices today, should give them a nice boost.

Coke volume +2%, ahead of consensus & despite later Easter; And those EM basket cases? China +12%, India +6%, Russia +9% & Brazil +4% $KO

2.) 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.

3.) Charles Schwab (SCHW - Get Report) reported a monster beat too. Its earnings report crushed just about every analyst estimate possible. The Schwab earnings report has become a notable barometer for the retail trading and investing environment. Schwab reported that total client assets hit a new record at $2.31 trillion. They also added 258,000 new brokerage accounts in the quarter, which is a 6% increase from last year:

Schwab $SCHW put up another great report today, they keep stealing share by offering a simply better mobile banking experience, free ATMs
