This is from a piece I wrote for GuruFocus, outlining 7 stocks that I think could be volatile after their earnings announcements:
“Earning season can always be expected to bring a rise in volatility. But at a time when stock markets seem to be pricing in perfection, a poor earnings announcement or guidance can stop a stock’s momentum in its tracks.

This creates a potential for large moves in a stock’s price after an earnings announcement. Results below expectations can give a harsh reality check for investors who had been expecting greatness. Meanwhile, a blowout earnings announcement can lead to capitulation by bears and send a stock soaring.
