The average US stock went up 0.34% on the first trading day following their earnings reports during the second quarter reporting period.  That's a pretty good number considering the negative sentiment we saw leading up to earnings season.  Now that Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) has reported, marking the unofficial end of the earnings season, it's time to highlight the big winners and losers.
