Next week we have a small but mighty list of stocks with short dated options available for trading reporting earnings. Monday afternoon SandRidge Energy (SD) gets things going. Note the biggest drop the stock has experienced when reporting was last quarter. It will be interesting to see if investors are skittish in front of the earnings release. On the other side of the spectrum Home Depot (HD) reporting on Tuesday morning and Gap Stores (GPS) reporting Thursday after the close are coming off strong stock performances based on earnings three months ago.
