Earnings season is a crucial time for investors and analysts, as it provides insights into how well companies have performed over the past quarter and gives indications of their future earnings. In 2023, expectations for US Q1 earnings were low due to economic challenges and rising interest rates. Surprisingly, many companies beat these low expectations, with 75% of S&P 500 companies surpassing forecasts.

Tesla jumps ahead of stock split
Tesla Inc. (TESLA) surge has several reasons. First, the company started to deliver cars from its new Berlin factory. Many investors were worried that the factory won’t start its work because of “red tape and bureaucracy” but now fears are shrinking. A similar event is planned next week at Tesla's other new plant near Austin, Texas, which has already started deliveries. The two factories double the number of automotive assembly plants.
Next, there are reports that Tesla has signed a secret multi-year deal with Vale for the supply of nickel. This will help Tesla to avoid supply shortages from Russia, one of the biggest producers of nickel.
Finally, Tesla shareholders are about to vote for a stock split. The company last split its stock in August 2020. The shares gained 300% since that 5-for-1 split. Stock split opens a way for retail investors to buy more affordable shares. Thus, the stock may rise even more from the current level ($1093) or a little bit lower ($1040-1000 area). The target for a movement is $1200-1250.

Twitter loves crypto
Twitter (TWTR) allowed its users to use their NFTs as profile pictures. Now you can show the world what crypto you have. Though it isn’t a major bullish factor for the stock, Twitter has an ace in the hole. The company started to accept donations in crypto, meaning that Twitter now can benefit from the growth of cryptocurrency users.
In the light of developments, the stock gained 32% over the last month and is likely to grow even more. Look for $42.00 per share as the next target.

Alibaba is about to soar
After almost a two-year-long fall of Alibaba stock (ALIBABA), it is about to make a decent upwards move. Technically, we have several reasons for it, starting from a divergence on the daily RSI oscillator, ending with the fourth touch of a descending trendline.
Look for a breakout of the $124.00 resistance level and aim for gap closing of the $148.50-159.00 area.
