This is an encouraging sign in my mind as it shows that actual sales and revenues are coming in stronger than expected rather than simply earnings per share.

Earnings per share metrics can be improved through unsustainable cost cutting measures whereas actual top-line growth is a much more reliable and sustainable indicator of health.

It shows the companies are actually bringing in more money.
