Krispy Kreme, Three Others Are Poised for More Volatility

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Today we crunch the numbers on two retailers and a doughnut chain that are set to report quarterly results after the closing bell Monday or before the opening bell on Tuesday. The fourth company is an alternative fuel company that reports after the closing bell on Tuesday.

Many stocks have been volatile year to date both before and after reporting quarterly results. Our profiles below and the crunching the numbers tables that follow will help investors navigate the volatility.

Dollar General (DG - Get Report) ($53.78), down 11% year to date. Analysts expect the discount retailer to report earnings per share 73 cents before the opening bell on Tuesday. This EPS estimate is down 2 cents from last week. The stock has been extremely volatile, setting an all-time intraday high at $62.93 on Jan. 10, before going as low as $53 on Friday. The stock has been below its 200-day simple moving average at $57.51 since April 4.

The weekly chart is negative with its five-week modified moving average at $55.82 and its 200-week SMA at $44.58. An annual value level is $45.67 but if the stock can trade above this week's pivot at $54.25 the upside is to monthly and semiannual risky levels at $57.04 and $59.17, respectively.

FuelCell Energy (FCEL) ($2.34), up 66% year to date. Analysts expect the alternative-energy company to report a loss of 3 cents a share after the closing bell on Tuesday. This estimate is a penny better than last week's estimate for the company that provides renewable biogas and natural gas to power plants.

Talk above volatility: This stock traded at a multiyear intraday high at $4.74 on March 11 and thus is 50.6% below its high despite being up 66% year to date. The stock is above all five key moving averages in our first table.

The weekly chart shifts to positive given a close this week above its five-week MMA at $2.23 which justifies a buy as an "option on survival'. Invest knowing that the risk is that you could lose the entire amount of money invested. A weekly value level is $2.09 with a monthly risky level at $2.47.
