3 Stocks That Could Make Huge Moves This Week

Prepare yourself, Fools. The three stocks I'm talking about today are primed to make some huge moves in the coming week. But instead of trying to time the market and buy or sell these stocks before the volatility arrives, I suggest you do ... nothing.

That's especially true if you're a shareholder of this week's big movers: Best Buy  (NYSE: BBY  ) , Staples  (NASDAQ: SPLS  ) , and GameStop  (NYSE: GME  ) . All three of these companies will be reporting earnings, and all three also have lots of investors shorting their stock. That's a recipe for the kind of swings you don't often see during an average market day.

While Wall Street will be focusing on short-term numbers -- like meeting one quarter's revenue and earnings expectations -- read on to see what long-term investors should really be looking for, and why so many are down on these stocks.

Will this stock be your next multibagger?
Give us five minutes and we'll show how you could own the best stock for 2014. Every year, The Motley Fool's chief investment officer hand-picks one stock with amazing potential. But it's not just any run-of-the-mill company. It's a stock perfectly positioned to cash in on the upcoming year's most lucrative trends. Last year his pick skyrocketed 134%. And previous top picks have gained upwards of 908%, 1,252% and 1,303%! You don't want to miss what could be his biggest winner yet!
