Screen of the Week written by Kevin Matras of Zacks Investment Research:

In good markets or bad, earnings are one of the most important things that influence stock prices.

But instead of just looking at only the most recent quarter's earnings, try looking for earnings acceleration too.

Sideways 'percentage earnings growth' (even if they're good) or decelerating 'percentage earnings growth' (strong or not) can potentially signal a period of consolidation (or slowdown), which in turn can flatten out prices or send them lower.
