Stocks in this article: CVXMHKPGPSASPFTSLAWY

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Four of the seven companies profiled today report quarterly results after the closing bell Thursday, and three report before the opening bell on Friday.

Tesla (TSLA) reports after the closing bell Thursday and is the biggest year-to-date gainer, up 52%. In second place and also reporting after the close is Public Storage (PSA), which has a year-to-date gain of 16%.

Dow Jones Industrial Average components Chevron (CVX) 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.
