Hang on to your hats, Fools. I'm going to be introducing three stocks below that will likely be making huge moves in the week to come. That's because all three are reporting earnings, and all three are heavily shorted -- or have lots of investors betting against their short-term success.
In the past, when these two variables collide, volatility is almost always the result. In fact, two of the stocks I singled out last week moved an average of 16% following their respective earnings releases (one pushed off its report by a week).
But don't be misled. I don't think you should prepare to make any buy or sell decisions based on these movements. In fact, that would be the antithesis of our buy-to-hold investing strategy here at The Motley Fool. Instead, I think you should use the slideshow below to focus on what really matters when these companies report earnings, and ignore the rest.
