What Do General Electric and Chipotle Earnings Mean?: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- This was a huge week for earnings -- more than 100 companies reported. Names like Coca-Cola (KO), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Goldman Sachs (GS), Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) and General Electric (GE) all posted earnings. And all of them were trending in posts by cashtaggers on StockTwits.com.

Today let's look at the two earnings reports that are gaining the most social interest right now, Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) and General Electric.


1.) Chipotle posted one of its strongest earnings reports in history. In fact, the company set a new revenue record, earning $904.2 million for the quarter. On StockTwits, there's already been a 28% increase in message volume.

But something to keep an eye on is sentiment. Currently StockTwits' sentiment on Chipotle stands at 54% bullish vs. 46% bearish. Depending on which way sentiment tilts today, we could see a huge move in Chipotle shares.
