Seven industry-leading stocks reporting earnings this week

By James Dennin for Kapitall.

Geopolitical strife kept stocks down through the morning on Monday, despite a stock rally where S&P 500 (SPX) companies beat their earnings estimates more than 70% of the time. 

The week ahead is one of the biggest this earnings season: More than 600 companies are reporting their results, and 140 of those companies are on the S&P. 

On Tuesday, European leaders are meeting in Brussels to consider whether tougher sanctions on Russia might prevent the conflict in Ukraine from escalating further after pro-Russian rebels shot down a civilian aircraft last week. The situation in Gaza is similarly grim. 

Taken together, it's easy to see why investors are being skittish. However, given the S&P's record thus far, it also seems likely that more earnings surprises could happen. So with that in mind, we screened the stocks reporting earnings this week. 

To do that, we limited the universe to stocks above a market cap of $2 billion with profit margins that beat their industry average by at least 5%. Do you think they'll continue to outperform their peers? Use the list below to begin your analysis and let us know what you think in the comments.
