7 Moon-Shot Stocks: Netflix, Under Armour, More

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Seven companies had moon-shot rallies after reporting quarterly results. Leading the trip to the moon were Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) and Under Armour (UA - Get Report), with gains of 23.5% and 22% respectively. All in just a few days.

But how can investors profit from these kinds of companies?

I hunt for these kinds of stocks by profiling pre-earnings stocks using fundamental data and chart patterns. I want to know where to buy on weakness and where to sell on strength. My analysis is available in full at my Web site, ValuEngine.com.

Today I have updated my analysis of seven post-earnings moon-shot companies. Tomorrow I will cover the stocks that were sent to the earnings woodshed following negative reactions to quarterly results.
