Moon-shots for Google and Chipotle Lead Earnings Scorecard


NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Last week I provided my buy-and-trade profiles for 19 companies in two posts.

On Wednesday I wrote, Goldman Sachs and Google Headline Thursday's Earnings and covered 12 companies; Eight beat EPS estimates, three missed and one matched. The first of the two headliners beat on EPS but missed on revenue and the new Dow component slipped slightly. The second of the headliners was a huge winner and traded above $1,000 a share for the first time ever on Friday.

On Thursday I wrote GE, Morgan Stanley and SunTrust Headline Friday's Earnings which included seven companies; five beat EPS estimates, one missed and one matched. All three headliners gapped higher at Friday's open.

Here's today's earnings scorecard:

BB&T (BBT) ($33.60) missed EPS estimates by a penny earning 70 cents a share premarket on Thursday. The hold rated regional bank traded slightly lower staying between its 200-day simple moving average at $32.63 and its 50-day SMA at $34.35. My weekly value level is $32.04 with a semiannual risky level is $35.29. The weekly chart profile is negative with the five-week modified moving average at $34.08.

Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) ($509.74) missed EPS estimates by 11 cents earning $2.66 a share in afterhours trading on Thursday. Traders ignored the buy rated burrito and taco restaurant EPS miss concentrating on positive same store sales and forward guidance. The stock gapped higher on Friday to another all-time high at $511.10. My semiannual value level is $428.09 with monthly and weekly pivots at $450.60 and $480.17. The ValuEngine one-year price target is $537.93.

Capital One (COF) ($71.60) beat EPS estimates by 11 cents earning $1.88 a share in afterhours trading on Thursday. The hold rated credit card company traded to a new multi-year high at $72.99 then faded well shy of my quarterly risky level at $76.56. This week's pivot is $71.30 on an overbought weekly chart.

Fifth Third Bank (FITB) ($19.28) missed EPS estimates by 2 cents earning 40 cents a share premarket on Thursday. The hold rated regional bank popped above its 50-day SMA at $18.50 to a week's high at $19.33 on Friday. Weekly and semiannual value levels are $17.81 and $17.50 with a monthly pivot at $19.06 and a semiannual risky level at $21.10.
