By looking for companies that share two key characteristics, we can spot volatility before it happens.

It could be a wild week on Wall Street for these three companies.

Buckle up, Fools. If you own shares of Lindsay Corporation (NYSE:LNN)The Container Store (NYSE:TCS), or Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ), you could be in for a doozy of a week on Wall Street. That's because all three of these companies are reporting quarterly earnings, and all three are heavily shorted -- meaning they have lots of investors betting against them.

When these two forces combine, volatility is almost always the result. In fact, the last time I highlighted three such companies, they moved an average of 11% following their respective earnings releases. 

But I don't think you should try to use this information to make a quick buck. That's not how we do things here at the Fool, and even if it was, there's no telling whether these stocks will be going up or down. Instead, I think it's best if current shareholders check out the slideshow below to see what truly matters over the long run -- and what will just be noise in the week ahead.
