Groupon and Tesla in Moon-shots on Earnings Beats

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Stocks stabilized Thursday, but individual companies reporting quarterly earnings had their ups and downs, some by double-digit percentages. Two stocks blasted off in moon-shots and two were cut behind the investor woodshed.

On Tuesday in Groupon, Tesla and Priceline Headline Earnings Previews I covered 11 companies that reported quarterly results afterhours Wednesday, on Thursday, and one that reports this morning. Today's scorecard covers the six stocks that reported results in the afterhours on Wednesday and premarket on Thursday. On Monday, I will provide the scorecard for the five that reported in the afterhours Thursday and in the premarket on Friday.

Fundamentally the ValuEngine valuation warning continues with 75.8% of all stocks overvalued with 43% overvalued by 20% or more. 15 of 16 sectors are overvalued, 14 by double-digit percentages including seven overvalued by more than 20%.

Scorecard from stocks that reported earnings results Wednesday afterhours and Thursday premarket:

Eagle Materials (EXP - Get Report) ($67.92) missed EPS estimates by 2 cents earning 60 cents a share. The stock opened a tad lower on Thursday but rebounded to a test of its 50-day simple moving average at $68.72 after the day's low was above its 200-day at $64.39. The hold rated cement manufacturer has a quarterly value level at $65.09 and a monthly risky level at $79.43.

Foster Wheeler (FWLT) ($24.09) beat estimates by 21 cents earning 54 cents a share. The stock closed Wednesday at $21.75 and popped above its 50-day and 200-day SMAs at $22.44 and $22.90 at Thursday's open. Thursday's high was $24.95. The construction and engineering company has been downgraded to sell from hold this morning, and has a monthly pivot at $23.33 and semiannual risky level at $25.04.

Groupon (GRPN - Get Report) ($10.60) beat estimates by 2 cents reporting a loss of just a penny a share. The stock closed Wednesday at $8.72 and opened with a moon-shot to $11.22 on Thursday. As a recent IPO I only have enough data to provide weekly and monthly levels from my proprietary analytics. The hold rated discount online shopping website has a monthly pivot at $9.43.
