NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Earnings season peaked this week in terms of the number of stocks that reported. On July 23 I profiled nine stocks that reported results on July 24 in Boeing, Caterpillar, Facebook Earnings Ahead . Seven beat their EPS estimates and only one missed.

On July 24 I profiled 13 stocks in Amazon, GM and 3M Earnings Preview. These stocks reported earnings results Thursday, and on Monday I will provide a scorecard for these names. I will also profile eight stocks that report their earnings on Wednesday.

Today I provide my buy-and-trade data for five stocks that report results on Tuesday.

Here's my scorecard for the July 24 field of stocks:

Akamai Tech (AKAM) ($45.19) matched estimates earning 37 cents a share. The stock opened lower Thursday with a low at 42.40. Buy-and-trade investors who had GTC Limit Orders to buy weakness to my monthly value level is $43.27 were filled at the opening price at $42.50 and the stock popped to $45.59.

Boeing (BA) ($106.70) beat estimates by 9 cents earning $1.67 a share. Boeing reported premarket on July 24 and traded up to a new multi-year high at $109.49 at the open. Buy-and-trade investors with a GTC Limit Order to sell did so as $109.49 is my semiannual risky level. My monthly value level is $103.24 with a weekly pivot at $105.72 and semiannual risky level at $109.49.

Caterpillar (CAT) ($82.14) missed estimates by 26 cents earning $1.45 a share. This stock disappointed once again and traded to a low of $81.35 on Thursday. Failing to hold the 50-day simple moving average at $84.91 lead to a test of this week's pivot at $82.80.

Citrix Systems (CTXS) ($67.98) beat estimates by 2 cents earning 47 cents a share. The stock opened Thursday with a high at $70.66 then fell to $66.98. Buy-and-trade investors with a GTC Limit Order to sell strength to my annual risky level were filled at the opening price at $70.45. Support is the 200-day SMA at $66.44.

EMC (EMC) ($26.75) beat estimates by a penny earning 35 cents a share premarket on Wednesday. The stock spiked to $27.34 then declined to $26.31 on Thursday. My monthly value level is $23.59 with a weekly pivot at $25.75 and semiannual risky level at $32.66.
