Earnings Season: Who made 2017 even better during Q4?

Now the year 2017 has (almost) ended with a solid performance for most stocks, it's time to look at how the companies performed. For a couple of Dow30 components, such as retailer Wal-Mart Stores, the fourth quarter is the key quarter of the year. But yet again, most company boards have to show if the previously indicated guidances were met. Most analysts and market participants have their own estimates of course.

For a good comparison between actual performance and these estimates, please find below the table with the estimates for all Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) components.
