How to Profit on Apple, Facebook, Qualcomm Earnings Today: StockTwits

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- By the time this week is over, more than 300 companies will have reported earnings. That includes some of the biggest names and brands in the world. A streak of strong earnings could significantly change the direction of the market.

Today, that is especially true for the technology sector. So how can investors profit on these earnings announcements? Cashtaggers at StockTwits have been debating that. Here are some highlights.

1. After today's closing bell both Apple (AAPL) and Facebook  (FB) will report earnings. Apple is down 5% this year, and bullish sentiment on StockTwits has dropped even further -- from around 90% at the beginning of the year to 65% today. We've selected notable headlines and posts this week about Apple. Read them before Apple reports:
