As earnings season continues, Wall Street analysts are raising their outlook for certain names set to report earnings next week.

Meta Platforms, Microsoft and Honeywell are among the companies that topped estimates. To be sure, corporate America came into this reporting period with muted expectations. Analysts forecast S & P 500 earnings fell more than 5% year over year, according to Refinitiv.
