NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- My coverage of this week's earnings parade begins with Masco (MAS), a maker of cabinets and faucets, reporting after the closing bell today. The company is one of the components of the housing sector index I profiled on Friday.
MDC Holdings (MDC), a homebuilder and another component of the housing index, reports before the opening bell Tuesday. Masco's shares are down 8.2% year to date, and MDC is down 11%. The housing index is down 3.8%.
The biggest gainer year to date in today's "crunching the numbers" table is the auto-parts provider TRW Automotive (TRW) with a year-to-date gain of 42%
Let's take a look at the stock profiles. Two "crunching the numbers" tables follow.
International Paper (IP) ($49.92) was volatile last week, trading as low as $47.06 on Tuesday and as high as $51.98 on Thursday. It ended the week above all five moving averages in today's first table.
Analysts expect the company to report earnings per share of 82 cents before the opening bell on Tuesday. The company has a 12-month trailing price-to-earnings ratio is 15.1 and dividend yield of 2.8%.
The weekly chart is positive but overbought its five-week modified moving average at $48.78. Semiannual and annual value levels are $44.03 and $35.03, respectively, with monthly and semiannual risky levels at $51.11 and $53.88, respectively.
