Fools, the three stocks I'm about to introduce aren't for the faint of heart. In fact, they are pretty much only for the buy-to-hold investor. That's because all three of these stocks will likely be making huge moves in the week to come.
You see, each stock is reporting earnings next week, and each has a lot of investors betting against -- shorting -- its long-term success. When these two variables combine, outsized moves are almost always the outcome.
In order to prepare you for these moves, and encourage you to focus on what really matters in the long run, I've prepared a slideshow below to help calm your nerves and read each company's release with a balanced approach.
