Earnings Breakfast at Tiffany, Plus Five Others to Report This Week

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Here are some technical trading guidelines for six companies that will report their quarterly results this week. 

The biggest winner year-to-date is Big Lots (BIG) with a gain of 46%. The retailer of closeout merchandise and toys set a multiyear high last week after setting a multiyear low in January. That came after the company reported earnings in December that missed estimates. Investors will learn pre-market on Friday whether Big Lots' turnaround can continue.

In second place in the winners' circle is Abercrombie & Fitch  (ANF - Get Report) with a gain of 33% year to date. The clothing retailer, which will report pre-market Thursday, has been volatile.

In third place is luxury-goods retailer Tiffany (TIF - Get Report) , which is up 8.4% year to date. High-end retailers have performed well this year, and Tiffany set an all-time high in July. The company will report pre-market on Wednesday.

The biggest year-to-date loser is RadioShack (RSH) , which is down 74% year to date. The stock has become a penny stock, trading at less than dollar a share. Investors will get clues pre-market on Tuesday whether the electronics retailer has a chance for a turnaround.

Best Buy (BBY) was a turnaround story in 2013, but the stock is down 22% so far this year. The big-box retailer set a multiyear low in December 2012, and hit a multiyear high in November 2013, up almost 300%. Best Buy will report pre-market on Tuesday.

Smith & Wesson (SWHC) has beaten analysts' earnings-per-share estimates every quarter since the end of 2011. The stock set a multiyear high in June, but it is down 3.8% year to date. The company will report after the close on Tuesday.

Here are today's stock profiles. Two "crunching the numbers" tables follow.

Abercrombie ($43.80) is above four of five moving averages in today's first "crunching the numbers" table. The exception is its 200-week simple moving at $47.23, which is a sign that the retailer's turnaround is still incomplete.

Analysts expect the company to report earnings-per-share of 10 cents. Abercrombie has a 12-month trailing price-to-earnings ratio of 24.5 and dividend yield of 1.8%.

The weekly chart is positive with its five-week modified moving average at $40.99. Monthly and weekly value levels are $41.32 and $39.42, respectively, with quarterly and annual risky levels at $46.10 and $53.33, respectively.

Best Buy ($31.20) has been below its 200-day simple moving average since Jan. 16 until last week with the average at $30.44. The 2014 intraday low was $22.15 on Jan.31.

Analysts expect the company to report earnings of 31 cents per share. It has a 12-month trailing P/E ratio of 15.2 and dividend yield of 2.4%.

The weekly chart is neutral with its five-week MMA at $29.85 and its 200-week SMA at $27.02. Weekly and annual value levels are $29.74 and $27.51, respectively, with an annual pivot at $30.62 and quarterly risky level at $33.03.
