Almost 1,000 companies are reporting their second quarter earnings results next week - do you have a watch list prepared? To highlight some interesting names reporting next week, we ran a screen.

We began by screening for stocks that are reporting their second quarter earnings next week for those with high growth, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 20%.

We then screened for strong sales trends by comparing growth in revenue to growth in inventory over the last year. We screened for stocks with positive sales trends, with faster growth in revenue than inventory over the last year. Since inventory represents the portion of goods not yet sold, faster growth in revenue than inventory is considered an encouraging sign.

To screen for strengthening liquidity, we also only focused on those companies with inventory decreasing as a percent of current assets.
