Morgan Stanley's research team pointed clients to a group of stocks it expects to rally this earnings season, citing a number of near-term bullish factors.

"Our analysts believe that one or more imminent events will drive the share price materially over the next 15 to 60 days," read Tuesday's note, pointing to a select list of names with "high conviction going into earnings season."

What makes the list unique, according to the report, is the firm's contrarian view of some of these stocks, with it significantly differing from the rest of the Street.

First-quarter earnings reporting season kicked off this week with a smattering of results. The flow of releases really picks up next week.

Here are some of the names that could be ready to pop on earnings.
