This is Part III of earnings being reported on Tuesday. There are quite a few market moving stocks reporting earnings. It is not hard to tell we are right in the middle of earnings season. Due to the quantity of companies reporting I am focusing on the highest volume traded stocks.

Tellabs Inc (NASDAQ:TLAB) is a $1.57 billion market cap company. Tellabs, Inc. is engaged in designing and marketing equipment and services to communications services providers. The company’s products and services enable its customers to deliver wireline and wireless voice, data and video services to business and residential customers.
The company reported (basic) $0.07 per share in earnings for the quarter ending April 1, 2011. The Quick Ratio is 2.64.

The current trailing twelve months (ttm) P/E ratio is 19.682 and the forward P/E ratio is 144.33. A rising P/E ratio is usually not what we want to see for an investment. The stock has a price to book ratio (ttm) of 1.39. The price to sales ratio is 1.58. A look at the chart says it all about this one. The moving averages are crashing, the price is well below the 200 day moving average, and basically anyone who held on is underwater. The chart shows a trendline break last week to the upside, indicating that the worst may be over soon for investors. The nose bleed PE ratio and the daily chart does not fully support the weekly chart. This one is worth looking into further though. A surprise beat to the upside could give some life into the stock. It has enough daily volume to move if given a chance. On the other hand, this has the making of a stock on the highway to hell. For sure a short candidate, even if a bit late to the party.

In the last month the stock has moved in price -2.53%, with a one year change of -3.17%. Comparing to the S&P500 price change, Tellabs Inc's performance is 4.64% vs. the S&P 500 from a month ago, and the one year difference is 6.84% vs. S&P 500 price change.

The annual growth rate of revenue is 7.64%. The last fiscal year had accounts receivable to sales percentage of 0.245% compared to the same period a year earlier of 0.2706%. For the trailing twelve months investors received $0.08 in dividends for a yield of 1.85%.


Tellabs Inc has rising revenue year-over-year of $1.64 billion for 2010 vs. $1.53 billion for 2009. The bottom line has rising earnings year-over-year of $155.60 million for 2010 vs. $113.60 million for 2009. The company's earnings before income and taxes are falling with an EBIT year-over-year of $173.70 million for 2010 vs. $93.50 million for 2009.

Here is a look at reported earnings (some one time items are often excluded in reported EPS) compared to the mean estimate. Dollar differences are rounded to the nearest penny and percentage differences are rounded based on rounded dollar differences.

Patriot Coal Corp has falling revenue year-over-year of $2.04 billion for 2010 vs. $2.05 billion for 2009.

Additionally, the company provides supply chain services, primarily wholesale distribution, across the United States retail grocery channel.
The company reported (basic) $0.45 per share in earnings for the quarter ending February 26, 2011. The Quick Ratio is 0.3. The next reporting quarter estimated mean earnings are $0.33 per share. Analyst estimates range between $0.29 and $0.35 per share.

The forward P/E ratio is 6.8. The stock has a price to book ratio (ttm) of 1.35. The price to sales ratio is 0.05.

In the last month the stock has moved in price 2.33%, with a one year change of -21.13%. Comparing to the S&P500 price change, Supervalu Inc's performance is -3.5% vs. the S&P 500 from a month ago, and the one year difference is -35.87% vs. S&P 500 price change. Unlike PCX, this one is giving a short technical signal due to the falling price below the trendline. It is pretty clear that insider buying before the report is not driving the price higher. While this one could really move higher if they have a surprise beat, I would not be holding my breath for it.

The annual growth rate of revenue is -7.54%. The last fiscal year had accounts receivable to sales percentage of 0.0198% compared to the same period a year earlier of 0.0201%. For the trailing twelve months investors received $0.35 in dividends for a yield of 3.99%.
