Ready For Earnings Reports This Week: 4 Stocks With Strong Sales And ROI

James Dennin, Kapitall: Looking ahead to earnings reports this week, we found some lesser-known stocks that might be worth considering. 

Earnings season is starting to ramp into full gear, with high-profile announcements from Netflix (NFLX), Proctor & Gamble (PG) and a number of others earnings reports this week.

Parts of the financial sector are likely reeling from the announcement of JPMorgan's (JPM) record-breaking settlement, coupled with its first quarterly loss in almost a decade. But the market overall has much to look forward too, as many broad economic indicators from recent weeks have been pretty positive. 

Consumer sentiment remained unshaken by the government shutdown. And the stock market actually performed decently well throughout the whole ordeal, in no small part due to the announcement of Janet Yellen's appointment as the next Federal Reserve Chair.

Still, everyone is going to have an eye on the latest earnings and revenue reports for the most recent quarter.

This week alone, hundreds of companies are reporting their earnings. Earnings week is the most volatile time of the year for the stock market, as a single report can have a huge effect on a company's stock price.

Part of this has to do with intensified media coverage, but part of it also stems from institutional activity. Earnings season is often when institutional investors will re-evaluate their positions in certain companies. All this extra activity can often translate into a lot more movement. 

Investing ideas

We decided to run a screen on stocks with earnings reports this week, in case our readers are looking to ride the wave of fall earnings. Among an initial universe of almost 300 stocks reporting this week, we wanted to look for signs of increasing profitability, and also possible signs of companies that are undervalued.
