11 Earnings Reports to Watch this Week

Lies, Damned Lies

Last night on CNBC Reports, I ran a stock screen on 150 companies scheduled to report earnings between today and Friday. 

As I pointed out to Dennis Kneale, the screen looked for companies set to report that have been lagging behind the S&P 500's recent rally, have double digit earnings growth forecasts in the year ahead and have better than average dividend yields.

In the on-air report I pointed out three stocks, DuPont , UPS and McDonald's .  DuPont reported this morning and beat EPS estimates by 8 cents per share, despite lower sales and a restructuring charge.  In the premarket the stock is up about 2%.  McDonalds and UPS report on Thursday before the bell.  Here are the 11 companies that came up in the the screen and deserve a deeper look.
