With earnings on the horizon and high short interest, it's important to keep the long view in mind.

If you don't prepare yourself, this week might feel just like this.

Greetings, Fools. As with every other week, I'm here to give you the names of three stocks that are primed to make big moves this week on Wall Street.

Earlier this month, I singled out three stocks that moved an average of 11% following their earnings. It's probable the three stocks I'm talking about today -- Conn's (CONN -0.77%)QuikSilver (NYSE: ZQK), and Lululemon Athletica (LULU 1.65%) -- will experience the same level of volatility.

That's because all of these stocks share two distinct traits. First, they are all reporting quarterly earnings. And second, they are all heavily shorted -- or have lots of investors betting against them.

But I don't think you should use this knowledge to try and turn a quick buck -- there's no telling whether these stocks will go up or down. Instead, I think current shareholders should take a look at the slideshow below to figure out what's really worth paying attention to, and what's just noise.
