How to Trade 3D Systems, eBay, Panera Bread Earnings Reports Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- This week we will crunch the numbers on 42 companies that report their quarterly earnings Tuesday through Friday. Today's profiles are for nine stocks that report both before the opening bell and after the closing bell on Tuesday.

Rather than profile each stock individually, I crunch the numbers in the following tables for you.


The biggest year-to-date gainer is Marriott (MAR - Get Report) ($57.23), up 16%. The company is the parent of several hotel and motel chains, including the Ritz-Carlton and Courtyard, where I stay when visiting my son and his family in New Jersey. Analysts expected the company to report earnings per share of 51 cents after the closing bell today.

The stock is above all five key moving averages in today's first table and has an overbought weekly chart. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $57.85 on April 24, making it important for Marriott to hold its weekly pivot at $57.14. We show monthly and quarterly value levels at $56.00 and $51.40.

The second biggest year-to-date gainer is Goodyear Tire (GT) ($27.44), up 15.1%. The company reports its quarterly results before the opening bell on Tuesday, and analysts expect the tire maker to report EPS at 60 cents per share. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $28.48 on April 24.

The stock is above all five key moving averages but has declining stochastics on its weekly chart. This negative divergence should limit the upside to our monthly risky level at $28.71. Weekly and quarterly value levels are $26.57 and $25.29.

In third place, performance-wise, is Dow component and large cap pharma company Merck (MRK) ($57.24), up 14.4%. The company reports quarterly results before the opening bell on Tuesday, and analysts expect the stock to report EPS of 79 cents per share. Merck set a multiyear intraday high at $58.32 on April 22.

The stock is above all five key moving averages but has declining stochastics on its weekly chart. This negative divergence makes it important for the stock to hold its quarterly pivot at $57.07, as monthly and annual value levels lag at $54.81 and $53.40.

By far the biggest year-to-date loser in today's tables is 3D Systems (DDD - Get Report) ($49.64), down 46.6%. The company reports quarterly results before the opening bell on Tuesday, and analysts expect the maker of 3-D printers to report EPS of 11 cents per share. The stock set a parabolic all-time intraday high at $97.28 on Jan. 3, then crashed along with so many of the momentum stocks. The recent intraday low is $45.31, set on April 15.

The stock is below the first four of the five key moving averages. It's above its 200-week simple moving average at $28.67, with extremely oversold stochastics. Reaction to earnings will likely be extremely volatile, as weekly and annual value levels are $33.84 and $33.80. Its annual pivot is at $52.19, and semiannual risky levels at $57.37 and $77.58.
