With earnings season winding down, Markets Insider took a look at some of biggest winners and losers from the third quarter now that the vast majority of companies have reported.
According to analysts from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, overall S&P 500 earnings will come in about 2% above estimates.
"While still below peak levels, corporate margins have remained resilient despite tariffs and wage inflation," the firm wrote in a note to clients on November 3.
Investors and analysts have likely been looking for signs of a slowing economy in the form of pressured earnings as uncertainty around the US-China trade war and global growth concerns persisted throughout the quarter.
