While over 90% of S&P 500 companies have already posted earnings for the second quarter, there are still some big reports to watch.

JCPenney’s (JCP) stock plunged 15% today to an all-time low after posting a larger-than-expected loss of $0.09 per share. But there is a silver lining: Revenue topped estimates at $2.96 billion, and the retailer said it had an upbeat outlook for the second half of the year.

Nordstrom’s (JWN) results were a big contrast to JCPenney. The retailer posted a beat on its top and bottom lines and reported same-store sales growth of 1.7%. Nordstrom’s results were largely driven by growth in online shopping, with sales growth of 20% at
