Buckle up, Fools. If you own shares of lululemon athletica (NASDAQ:LULU)Vera Bradley (NASDAQ:VRA), or Conn's (NASDAQ:CONN), you'll have a volatile week ahead. That's because all three of these stocks are reporting quarterly results, and all three are heavily shorted.

When these two variables combine, huge swings in stock prices are almost always the result. If you don't believe me, check out my last installment in this series. The three stocks I singled out moved an average of 10% following their respective releases.

But don't be (small-f) foolish: Trying to profit from this information isn't advised. That's because there's no telling if these stocks will go up or down. Instead, check out the slideshow below to see what's really worth watching, and what's just noise.
