Garmin, Crocs, Lumber Liquidators Report Earnings Wednesday

Stocks in this article: CROXGRMNHLHLXIAGLLOISWMBXEC

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The buy-and-trade profiles in this pre-earnings analysis include four companies that report their results premarket on Wednesday and five who report results after hours on Wednesday. I am not sure whether the colorful footwear company Crocs (CROX) reports premarket or after hours but I do know that the stock has been above its 200-day simple moving average at $14.70 since Dec. 30.

Hardwood flooring retailer Lumber Liquidators (LL) is scheduled to report premarket. Its stock has been below its 200-day SMA at $97.31 since Jan. 27.

The nine companies profiled in this analysis include four stocks in the oils-energy sector and two low-priced gold miners in the basic materials sector, Hecla Mining (HL) ($3.47) which is above its 200-day at $3.19 and IAMGold (IAG) ($4.18) which is below its 200-day at $4.69.

Crocs ($15.66): Analysts expect the footwear company to report a loss of 23 cents a share. The stock set a 2014 high at $16.88 on Jan. 2 then traded as low as $14.41 on Jan. 27, but all 2014 closes have been above its 200-day SMA at $14.70. The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $14.94 and its 200-week SMA at $16.65. The stock has a gain of 5.3% over the last 12 months. My monthly value level is $11.21 with a quarterly risky level at $17.33. The market reaction to earnings could be volatile between $11.21 and $17.33.

Garmin (GRMN) ($46.08): Analysts expect the navigation device maker to report earnings of 61 cents a share. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $50.39 on Oct. 30 then traded as low as $43.03 on Feb. 5 staying above its 200-day SMA at $42.18. The weekly chart is neutral with its five-week MMA at $45.95 and its 200-week SMA at $37.32. The stock has a gain of 18.2% over the last 12 months. My quarterly value level is $43.43 with semiannual pivots at $44.99 and $48.43 and monthly and annual risky levels at $52.58 and $57.49. A muted reaction to earnings should keep the stock between the pivots at $44.99 and $48.43.

Hecla Mining ($3.47): Analysts expect the gold miner to report earnings of a penny a share. The stock moved above its 200-day SMA at $3.19 on Feb. 11 three days before gold. The weekly chart is positive with its five-week MMA at $3.17 and its 200-week SMA at $5.65. The stock has a loss of 36.2% over the last 12 months. My quarterly value level is $3.21 with a semiannual risky level at $4.74.

Helix Energy (HLX) ($22.27): Analysts expect the operator of offshore oil and gas facilities to report earnings of 32 cents a share. The stock has been below its 200-day SMA at $23.96 since Oct. 31 trading to a 2014 low at $19.44 on Feb. 3. The weekly chart is positive with its five-week MMA at $21.95 and its 200-week SMA at $17.92. The stock is down 12.2% over the last 12 months. This week's value level is $20.88 with semiannual pivots at $22.53 and $24.19 and a quarterly risky level at $26.59.

IAMGold ($4.18): Analysts expect the gold miner to report earnings of 5 cents a share. The stock moved above its 50-day SMA at $3.65 on Feb. 10 but remains below its 200-day SMA at $4.69. The weekly chart is positive with its five-week MMA at $3.85 and its 200-week SMA at $13.55. The stock has a loss of 49.7% over the last 12 months. My monthly value level is $3.69 with a weekly pivot at $4.30 and semiannual risky level at $7.55.

Lumber Liquidators ($95.99): Analysts expect the retailer of flooring to report earnings of 72 cents a share. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $119.98 on Nov. 18 then traded as low as $85.58 on Dec. 12 and is currently just below its 200-day SMA at $97.31. The weekly chart is negative with its five-week MMA at $97.64 and its 200-week SMA at $45.33. The stock has a gain of 50.1% over the last 12 months. My semiannual value level is $75.77 with a weekly pivot at $94.99 and monthly and quarterly risky levels at $112.67 and $120.77. This stock could have a volatile reaction to earnings with the wide range between value and risky levels.

Oil States International (OIS) ($98.40): Analysts expect the manufacturer of deepwater oil production facilities to report earnings of $1.49 a share. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $113.64 on Nov. 15 then traded as low as $91.55 on Feb. 3 and is just below its 200-day SMA at $98.98. The weekly chart shifts to positive with a close this week above its five-week MMA at $98.40 with its 200-week SMA at $74.40. The stock has a gain of 21.6% over the last 12 months. My annual value levels are $88.27 and $85.09 with quarterly and monthly pivots at $96.16 and $97.75 and semiannual risky levels at $114.88 and $116.09.

Williams Cos (WMB) ($40.83): Analysts expect the provider of natural gas, petroleum and electricity to report earnings of 21 cents a share. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $41.90 on Feb. 11 and is well above its 200-day SMA at $36.07. The weekly chart is positive but overbought with its five-week MMA at $39.35 and its 200-week SMA at $28.17. The stock has a gain of 15.1% over the last 12 months. Quarterly and annual value levels are $36.04 and $35.74 with monthly, annual and semiannual pivots at $38.09, $39.19, $40.57 and $42.16. The earnings reaction neutral range is thus between $38.09 and $42.16.

Cimarex Energy (XEC) ($109.26): Analysts expect the oil and gas producer to report earnings of $1.41 a share. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $113.03 on Oct. 21 then traded as low as $92.38 on Jan. 13 staying well above its 200-day SMA at $88.49. The weekly chart is positive with its five-week MMA at $101.99 and its 200-week SMA at $76.35. The stock has a gain of 62.5% over the last 12 months. Quarterly and annual value levels are $92.22 and $85.16 with a semiannual pivot at $102.49 and monthly and semiannual risky levels at $112.62 and $115.58.
