Earnings season is now in full swing as we head into February.

The earnings report cards have been mixed thus far.
On one hand, businesses that have performed admirably through the crisis are continuing to do so.
Glove companies such as UG Healthcare Limited (SGX: 8K7) are reporting sharply higher revenue and earnings on the back of surging demand for healthcare gloves.
