CarMax Drives to New High, Pier 1 Takes Plunge Below Key Average

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Here's a look at last week's three biggest winners and the three biggest losers among the companies I profiled before they reported their quarterly results.

By far the biggest winner was CarMax (KMX - Get Report) with a gain of 17% since June 17; Pier 1 Imports (PIR - Get Report) was the biggest loser with a hit of 15% since June 17.

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

And the winners are:

CarMax ($51.91) is up 17% since June 17 after being down 5.8% year to date. The company beat analysts' earnings-per-share estimates by 10 cents, earning 76 cents. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $53.67 on Friday, popping above its 200-day simple moving average at $47.28.

The company has experienced a nice turnaround.

The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $47.59 and its 200-week SMA at $36.67. Weekly and annual value levels are $50.67 and $46.75, respectively, with semiannual and quarterly risky levels at $56.61 and $60.33, respectively.

Kroger (KR) ($49.40) is up 5.4% since June 17 after being up 19% year to date. The company beat analysts' EPS estimates by 4 cents, earning $1.09. The stock set an all-time intraday high at $50.20 on Friday, well above its 200-day SMA at $42.18.

The company has benefited from analysts' upgrades,

The weekly chart remains positive but overbought with its five-week MMA at $47.60. Semiannual and monthly value levels are $44.89 and $44.60, respectively, with weekly and quarterly risky levels at $50.53 and $51.65, respectively.
