Today’s Thursday morning preview is all about earnings on StockTwits. This was a huge week for earnings with more than 100 companies reporting. Names like Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Goldman Sachs, Google, and General Electric all posted earnings. Here are the 3 things reports that everyone is talking about on StockTwits right now:

1.) Chipotle $CMG posted one of its strongest earnings reports in history. In-fact, the company set a new revenue record earning $904.2 million for the quarter.

Did I read that correctly? $CMG comp up 13.4%? And mostly the result of traffic, not price. Wow.

2.) General Electric $GE also reported earnings early this morning and it’s been a top trending ticker on StockTwits ever since. General Electric is a must-read earnings report because it conducts business and operates factories around the world. To some extent, it’s an excellent indicator of global business conditions. GE took a big hit on sales this year because they sold NBC, but they did manage to beat estimates on the bottom line:

$GE reports Q1 adj. EPS 33c, cons. 32c; revs. $34.18B, cons. $34.36B (-2.3% YoY); on track to achieve $1B in structural cost-out for year.
