The first quarter has signaled a mixed start to this year’s earnings season.

About 68 percent of S&P 500 companies that have reported results so far have beaten earnings forecasts, but that was also because expectations were lowered sharply before the start of the current reporting season. Moreover, less than 42 percent have beaten revenue forecasts -- below the average beat rate of 52 percent over the past four quarters.

Big-name companies due to report quarterly earnings results next week include: AIG, Kellogg, Kraft Foods, Comcast, Time Warner, Pfizer, Merck, MasterCard and Visa.
