How to Trade Akamai, Chevron, LinkedIn, 9 More Earnings Reports This Week

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Today we crunch the numbers on 12 companies that report their quarterly earnings reports after the closing bell on Thursday or before the opening bell on Friday.

Rather than profile each stock individually, I crunch the numbers in the following tables for you. Note that eight companies report after the close today and four before the open tomorrow.


The biggest year-to-date gainer is Manitowoc (MTW)($31.78), up 36.3%. Analysts expect the maker of many types of commercial products such as ice machines and beverage dispensers to report earnings per share of 22 cents after the closing bell today. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $32.80 on March 21, then traded as low as $28.87 on April 7. It is above all five moving averages in the first table.

The weekly chart shifts to negative given a close this week below its five-week modified moving average at $30.60. Quarterly and semiannual value levels are $27.24 and $22.93, with a monthly risky level at $32.75.

The second best year-to-date gainer is Public Storage (PSA) ($175.51), up 16.6%. Analysts expect the provider of storage garages to report EPS of $1.86 after the closing bell today. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $176.72 on April 29, and it is above all five moving averages in the first table.

The weekly chart is positive but overbought, with its five-week MMA at $170.30. Quarterly and monthly value levels are $168.99 and $162.33, with a monthly pivot at $175.52 and semiannual risky levels at $181.11 and $181.73. This new monthly pivot suggests a potential reversal-oriented reaction to the company's earnings report.

In third place year-to-date is Akamai Tech (AKAM) ($53.07), up 12.5%. Analysts expect the provider of Internet applications that help companies improve online commerce to report EPS of 44 cents after the closing bell today. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $63.15 on Feb. 28, then traded as low as $50.52 on April 29, holding its 200-day simple moving average at $50.55.

The weekly chart stays negative given a close this week below its five-week MMA at $54.66. This week's value level is $51.05, with a quarterly pivot at $53.10 and semiannual and annual risky levels at $54.87 and $56.24.

The biggest year-to-date loser is LinkedIn (LNKD - Get Report) ($153.47), down 29.2%. Analysts expect the social network service for professionals to report EPS of a penny after the closing bell today. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $257.55 on Sept. 11, 2013, and has been below its 200-day SMA since Feb. 28. It traded as low as $143.26 on April 28.

The weekly chart stays negative but oversold given a close this week below its five-week MMA at $174.74. We show a monthly pivot at $164.79 and a quarterly risky level at $237.70.
