Ulta Salon Surges, Lululemon Gets Sheared on Earnings Volatility

Stocks in this article: HRB LULU PBY ULTA

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Earnings winners outpaced the losers this week, as post-earnings volatility continues.

Ulta Salon (ULTA) was the biggest winner, gaining 10%, while Lululemon (LULU) was the only loser, plunging by 16%. The stocks' movements continue the trend of seeing both pre-earnings and post-earnings stock-specific volatility.

Here are the updated profiles for the post-earnings winners and loser, which are followed by two "crunching the numbers" tables.

H&R Block (HRB) ($32.36), up 6.8% since June 6, after being up 4.4% year to date. The company beat analysts' earnings-per-share estimates by 17 cents, earning $3.36. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $32.77 on Thursday after being above is 200-day simple moving average at $28.90 since May 21.

The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $29.87. The stock moved above our monthly risky level at $32.36, becoming a monthly pivot which was then tested at Thursday's close. Weekly and semiannual value levels are $30.38 and $21.42, respectively, with the monthly pivot at $32.36 and quarterly risky level at $33.56.

Lululemon (LULU) ($37.25), down 16% since June 6, after being down 25% year to date. The company beat analysts' EPS estimates by 2 cents, earning 34 cents. The stock set a multiyear intraday low at $37 on Thursday on a weak forecast and revenue.

The weekly chart is negative, but oversold with its five-week MMA at $44.40. The stock has been below its 200-week SMA at $56.66 since mid-January. The stock broke below its weekly value level at $39.11, becoming a weekly pivot. A monthly value level is $33.90 with a weekly pivot at $39.11 and quarterly risky level at $53.04.

Pep Boys (PBY) ($10.85), up 2.1% since June 6, after being down 12% year to date. The company beat analysts' EPS estimates by a penny, earning 4 cents. The stock popped to $11.46 on the better-than-expected results, but could not sustain gains above our quarterly risky level at $11.22. The stock thus remains below its 200-day SMA at $12.06 as it has been since April 10.

The weekly chart shifts to positive given a close this week above its five-week MMA at $10.73 with upside to the 200-week SMA at $11.67, still to be tested. Weekly and quarterly value levels are $8.80 and $8.04, respectively, with quarterly and semiannual risky levels at $11.22 and $13.72, respectively.

Ulta Solon (ULTA) ($95.00), up 10% since June 6, after being down 11% year to date. The company beat analysts by 3 cents, earning 77 cents. The stock traded as high as $98.61 on June 11, staying shy of its 200-day SMA at $100.80. The stock has been below its 200-day SMA since March 26.

The weekly chart shows oversold stochastics but shifts to positive next week on a weekly close above its five-week MMA at $89.19 as the 200-week SMA at $78.25 solidifies as support. Weekly and monthly value levels remain at $82.86 and $76.69, respectively, with quarterly and semiannual risky levels still at $102.71 and $120.79, respectively.
