Earlier today, we featured a list of the most volatile stocks on their earnings report days. For those looking for calm, clear waters instead of rough seas, below is a list of the least volatile stocks on their report days. The stocks below have historically averaged moves of less than +/-2% on their quarterly earnings report days.

As you can see, nearly all of the names on the list are defensive in nature (Utilities, Consumer Staples, etc.). For these stocks, at least, investors don't have to worry too much about a huge move when earnings come around every three months.
