3 Stocks That Could Make Huge Moves This Week

If you are a shareholder in JinkoSolar  (NYSE: JKS  ) , Abercrombie & Fitch  (NYSE: ANF  ) , or Veeva Systems  (NYSE: VEEV  ) , I have one word of advice for you: Don't make any rash decisions to buy or sell shares next week.

That's because all three of these stocks are reporting earnings next week, and all are heavily shorted -- or have a lot of investors betting against their short-term success. When those two factors combine, extreme volatility is usually the result. In fact, the last time I identified three such stocks, they moved an average of 14% following their quarterly releases.

While this might sound like an excellent time to try to time the market, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact of the matter is, volatility is the only event that seems highly likely. There's no way to know if that will result in higher or lower prices at the end of the day -- unless, of course, you're privy to some inside information (which would be illegal).

Instead, long-term shareholders should look in the following slideshow to see what they should really be looking for when their company reports, and what to ignore in the week ahead.

The biggest thing to come out of Silicon Valley in years
If you thought the iPod, the iPhone, and the iPad were amazing, just wait until you see this. One hundred of Apple's top engineers are busy building one in a secret lab. And an ABI Research report predicts 485 million of them could be sold over the next decade. But you can invest in it right now, for just a fraction of the price of Apple stock.
