5 Stocks Set to Soar on Bullish Earnings

Veeva Systems 08/26/14

My first earnings short-squeeze play is cloud-based software solutions provider Veeva Systems (VEEV) , which is set to release numbers on Thursday after the market close. Wall Street analysts, on average, expect Veeva Systems to report revenue of $69.28 million on earnings of 7 cents per share.

The current short interest as a percentage of the float for Veeva Systems is extremely high at 32.4%. That means that out of the 37.24 million shares in the tradable float, 12.09 million shares are sold short by the bears. This is a huge short interest on a stock with a relatively low tradable float. Any bullish earnings news could easily set off a monster short-squeeze that sends the bears scrambling to cover some of their bets.

From a technical perspective, VEEV is currently trending above its 50-day moving average and below its 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock recently spiked sharply higher back above its 50-day moving average with decent upside volume flows. That move has now pushed shares of VEEV within range of triggering a major breakout trade above some key near-term overhead resistance levels post-earnings.

If you're bullish on VEEV, then I would wait until after its report and look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $24.80 to $25.08 a share and then above $26.34 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that registers near or above its three-month average volume of 998,267 shares. If that breakout hits post-earnings, then VEEV will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $29.06 to $34 a share.
