BALTIMORE (Stockpickr) -- Earnings season is by far the biggest fundamental catalyst for stock price movement. A good earnings season can shift sentiment toward the bulls, and a bad one can send investors running for the hills. With this quarter's earnings season kicking off in just a couple of weeks, investors could have a much-needed shift in buying sentiment coming.But some stocks are set to do better than others right now -- and it makes sense to look at the names that are trading at a discount ahead of earnings. A lot of factors go into the price that the market sets for a stock. But price is one thing, and value is another. Ultimately, a stock's fundamental valuation comes down to the combined present values of the company's future earnings; factors such as European debt and Fed policy impact share prices because the market is factoring in how it thinks they'll affect those earnings.

That's exactly what we're seeing right now -- and it means that a handful of stocks are trading at a discount ahead of their earnings calls. How do you spot an earnings discount? The key is to look for how the market is responding to earnings. Today, we're looking at companies that have revised their earnings estimates upward for the quarter but didn't see prices adjust in kind. Generally speaking, these firms tend to have a couple of black clouds overhead, but that's still a signal that the market may be too preoccupied with other factors to appropriately price shares. With that, here's a look at five earnings season stocks you can have at a discount right now.
