4 stocks to watch ahead of earnings

As earnings season kicks off, "Fast Money" traders picked struggling stocks that could be worth buying after results.

JPMorgan Chase

JPMorgan posts earnings after the markets close Tuesday, starting a string of big financial reports this week. The company's shares have fallen more than 1 percent this year, partly on diminishing speculation the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates.

Trader Karen Finerman touted the company as "premier quality" and said its valuation looks cheap ahead of earnings. Finerman owns JPMorgan shares.

Delta Air Lines

Delta Air Lines, which has also traded in the red this year, reports earnings Wednesday. Trader Pete Najarian, who owns Delta call options, contended it is the best company in the airline sector.

He added that crude oil prices around $50 per barrel bodes well for the stock.

Schlumberger

Low oil prices have been brutal on Schlumberger. The oilfield services company's shares have fallen 12 percent this year.

Trader Guy Adami believes Schlumberger will fall short of expectations when it reports this week. He would use the weakness to buy the stock on a dip.

Kansas City Southern

Shares of railroad company Kansas City Southern have fallen nearly 20 percent this year. Trader Tim Seymour believes the transportation segment may have hit bottom, and Kansas City Southern could rally with it.

The company also posts results later this week.
