9 Earnings Profiles: Crunching the Numbers on CVS Caremark, Mosaic and More

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Earnings season may be winding down somewhat, but it's not over yet. And there are still plenty of ways to use technical analysis to help you profit from the season.

As long as companies I have been profiling over the past two years have quarterly results to report, I will provide my pre-earnings buy-and-trade analysis. Today's profiles are for nine companies in seven sectors that report their earnings today and tomorrow.
