Dow Jones Industrial Average components Chevron (CVX - Get Report) and Procter & Gamble (PG) report before the opening bell on Friday with Chevron up 5.8% year to date and Procter & Gamble down 4%. The Dow ended Wednesday up just 1.8% year to date.

Weyerhaeuser (WY) also reports before Friday's opening bell with this stock up just 0.8%, so investors may yell "Timber!" if there's an earnings miss.

Let's take a look at the stock profiles. Two "Crunching the Numbers" tables follow.

Chevron ($132.53) set an all-time intraday high at $135.10 on July 24, which was a test of my quarterly risky level at $134.81. The stock is above all five key moving averages in today's first "Crunching the Numbers" table.

Analysts expect the company to report earnings per share of $2.73. Chevron has a 12-month trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 12.9 and a dividend of 3.2%.

The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $129.85 and its 200-week simple moving average at $109.95. Monthly and annual value levels are $123.74 and $118.80, respectively, with an annual pivot at $132.08 and quarterly and semiannual risky levels at $134.81 and $154.29, respectively.
