Amazon, GM and 3M Earnings Preview

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The tidal wave of earnings reports continues, and today I profile 13 companies that report quarterly results Thursday. Among them, four have buy ratings and nine have hold ratings, and only one is a Dow component.

To review my buy-and-trade strategies for the stocks reporting today, read Boeing, Caterpillar, Facebook Earnings Ahead.

Before I provide my buy-and-trade data for tomorrow's key earnings, let's take a look at how the 10 companies that reported Tuesday performed after releasing their earnings reports. These are the stocks I profiled on in Undervalued Apple Reports Earnings Tuesday.
