But there are still some companies left to report, and Arcos Dorados Holding Inc (NYSE:ARCO) is one of them.

Will Arcos Dorados give investors what they want this quarter?
Analysts have kept their fourth-quarter earnings views on Arcos Dorados Holding Inc (NYSE:ARCO) rock-steady over the past few months. But investors haven’t been quite as comfortable, as they’ve seen their shares lose 1% of their value in a stock market that has generally been soaring.

For years, Arcos Dorados has been an attractive way to play the booming consumer market in emerging economies of Latin America. But during 2012, aggressive action from the Brazilian government to rein in speculation sent its currency reeling, which hurt earnings at Arcos. Yet the company has seen impressive same-store sales when you exclude the currency impact, and Arcos has taken advantage of far less saturation in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin America to push growth aggressively.
