In one of the busiest weeks this earnings season, a group of stocks may be poised to move higher, if history is any guide.

Wall Street once again appears to have set the bar too low, setting up many opportunities for traders to benefit from a post-earnings surge.

Of the 191 S&P 500 companies that reported earnings already, 74 percent beat analysts' estimates, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Among those names, Amazon took the crown last week, with shares of the online retailer reaching a record price, up 66 percent in 2015.
