It’s not quite earnings season again, but, unfortunately, it is warnings season. And that’s exactly what the just-completed week brought: Plenty of earnings warnings. Amid the grim outlooks were some decent earnings reports. There were some ugly ones as well. With that, let’s recap the week in earnings news.
