Learning Earnings: CVS Caremark & AOL Report; Tesla Preview

Hot Stock Minute

CVS Caremark (CVS) is out this morning with a healthy earnings beat. The drug store giant made $1.05 a share, 3-cents better than expected. Revenues also topped estimates, reaching almost $32-billion dollars. Meanwhile, AOL (AOL) is out with a big earnings miss. Revenues actually topped estimates, but profits plunged to just 2-cents a share because of restructuring charges for the company's Patch news service. And Michael Kors (KORS) is still in fashion with an earnings beat. The company made 71-cents a share on $740-million in sales when expectations were for 68-cents a share on $725.91-million in sales.

Tesla (TSLA) reports after the closing bell. And that's put the stock on another charge higher. Right now the shares are up more than 2% in early trading. They rose more just over 8% yesterday, giving the stock a 395-% gain so far in 2013. What should investors be watching for when the company comes out with its report this afternoon?
