Nike Scores Earnings Goal; Bed Bath & Beyond Sinks: Earnings Profiles

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Today we profile this week's three big earnings winners and three big earnings losers. These companies are among those we profiled before they reported quarterly results.

The biggest winner is Barnes & Noble (BKS), which popped 13% after announcing its plan to spin off the Nook e-reader unit. The biggest loser was Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY - Get Report), which took an earnings bath, falling 6.5%.

Following are the updated profiles for the postearnings winners and losers. They are followed by two "Crunching the Numbers" tables.

And the winners are:

Barnes & Noble ($23.28), up 13% since June 20, after it had risen 38% year to date. The company reported a loss of 72 cents a share, which was 9 cents worse than analysts on average had forecast. Nevertheless, investors liked the idea of spinning off the Nook from the bricks-and-mortar retail unit, and the stock was rewarded with a rebound to $23.56 vs. its previous high of $23.71, which was set on May 13, 2013.

The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $19.75 and a 200-week simple moving average at $15.27. Semiannual and weekly value levels are $20.54 and $20.49, respectively, with a monthly pivot at $21.61.

Monsanto (MON) ($126.18) is up 3.4% since June 20 after it had risen 4.7% year to date. The company beat EPS estimates by 7 cents, earning $1.62 per share. The stock set a multiyear intraday high at $128.79 on June 25, well above its 200-day SMA at $111.88.

The weekly chart is positive but overbought with its five-week MMA at $120.10. An annual value level is $123.36 with a monthly pivot at $125.35 and weekly and annual risky levels at $128.75 and $131.26, respectively.

Nike (NKE - Get Report) ($79.05 after-hours on Thursday) is up 5.4% since June 24 after it had risen 4.7% year to date. The company beat EPS estimates by 2 cents, earning 78 cents per share. The stock traded as high as $79.94 in after-hours trading on Thursday vs. its all-time intraday high at $80.26, which was set on Dec. 9, 2013. The stock had been trading back and forth around its 200-day SMA at $75.07 since April 7.

The weekly chart is positive given a weekly close above its five-week MMA at $75.37. Semiannual and annual value levels are $74.10 and $69.56, respectively with a monthly pivot at $76.69 and semiannual and quarterly risky levels at $83.03 and $89.37, respectively.

And the losers are:

Bed, Bath & Beyond ($56.70) is down 6.5% since June 24 after falling 25% year to date. The company missed EPS estimates by 2 cents earning 93 cents. The stock traded as low as $54.96 on June 26 versus its 52-week low at $54.33 set in December 2012.
