The earnings season generally helps investors in assessing the operating performances of corporations. In addition, it also provides cues on how the companies are faring amid the growing uncertainties in the market.
The inflation, higher borrowing costs, and geopolitical tensions have dragged down the market so far this year. But the latest earnings season seems to have lifted the market spirit.
However, investors should tread cautiously with their investment plans amid the choppy trading scenario in the market.
