These three lesser-known names could soon be in the spotlight.

For many investors, the passing of Labor Day marks their return to Wall Street and following their favorite stocks. For those who might've missed out on August's volatility, I have an antidote for you: three stocks that will probably make huge moves this week: Cracker Barrel (CBRL 4.30%)Park City Group (PCYG), and Zayo (ZAYO). All three of these stocks will be reporting earnings, and all three have a relatively high percentage of their float being sold short. When these two forces combine, volatility is almost always the result. For perspective's sake, check out the three stocks I focused on two weeks ago, which moved an average of 12% following their respective earnings releases.

But instead of trying to profit from such short-term moves, I think current shareholders should instead steel themselves for the week ahead. Check out the following slideshow to see what really matters over the long-run, and what's just noise.
