Stock quotes in this article: CHK, CQB, MNST, PZZA, RATE, RL, TAP

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Today we provide a post-earnings scorecard for seven of the companies we profiled pre-earnings last week. Three had post-earnings gains of 5.2% to 7.5% from the closes in their pre-earnings profile and four had losses between 3.4% and 8.9%.

We crunch the numbers to help you decide whether or not to buy weakness to value levels or to sell strength to risky levels. Check out our charts on page 2 to help you make buy and sell decisions.
