Coming Week: Top Nine Earnings on Deck

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- During the next week's four days of trading, we expect more than 80 companies reporting results. I screened for the nine most active and potentially market-moving companies.

Below, I look at each one of these nine stocks, broken into three lists: Those reporting before the open, during the session and after the close.

Reporting Before the Open

Ciena(CIEN - Get Report): This company provides equipment, software and service solutions that support the transport, switching, aggregation and management of voice, video and data traffic on communications networks. It trades an average of 5.5 million shares a day.

Expectations: Wall Street is expecting Ciena to report a loss of 14 cents a share, an improvement of 58% from a year ago, when it reported a loss of 33 cents a share.

Five analysts follow Ciena with a high estimate of -9 cents to a low estimate of -22 cents a share. Ciena has missed or met estimates three of the last five quarters, with misses in the last two.

Revenue is projected to grow 7% year-over-year to reach $447 million. Looking at the chart, Ciena has entered into oversold territory and is due for a bounce. Unfortunately, $13.50 presents strong resistance. Ciena is a short-squeeze possibility, as more than 20% of the float is shorted.

Joy Global(JOY - Get Report) engages in the manufacture and servicing of mining equipment; it trades an average of 2.6 million shares a day.

Analysts' average estimate is $1.95 per share, based on a range of $1.82 to $2.06 per share -- $1.95 is an improvement of 60 cents for the same period last year.

Revenue is expected to be $1.43 billion for the quarter, handily surpassing $1.06 billion from the same period last year. Revenue estimates range from $1.32 billion to $1.5 billion.

Trading at a price-to-earnings multiple under 10, with growing top and bottom lines, the chart should look better. Trading near 52-week lows, shares in JOY are falling victim to China's slowdown. Forward guidance is the most important metric for investors in the next earnings release.
