Earnings season in focus.

The second-quarter earnings season picks up speed in the coming week with a rush of reports from major players in tech, healthcare and finance.

The prognosis for the season? Analysts are generally expecting another winner.

"We believe another quarter of double-digit earnings growth for the S&P 500 in the second quarter is possible, given generally solid overall economic data, the strong rebound in energy sector profits, and solid financial and technology sector earnings gains," said Burt White, chief investment officer for LPL Financial.

He added: "We believe corporate America will deliver more good news this quarter."

S&P 500 companies are expected to produce blended earnings growth of 8.1% and revenue growth of 4.6% this quarter, according to Thomson Reuters estimates. Earnings growth will largely be tied to a rebound in oil prices and recovering profitability at energy companies.
