The 10 Most Volatile Post-Earnings Stocks In The Midst Of One Helluva Streak
Traders looking for ideas in earnings season might want to consider stocks that move heavily after earnings. A pop — up or down — can lead to short-term profits if the right direction is picked.
Fortunately, Bespoke Investment Group just released a list of the most volatile S&P 500 stocks by average one-day price change after earnings. In other words, these stocks move the most on average following the release of quarterly results.
The full list is below, but let's take it a step further — we'll cherry pick the most volatile names coming off EPS beats (or in-line results) in at least three consecutive quarters. No, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) didn't make the cut, but these names did:
