Sealed Air (NYSE:SEE) stock will report earnings on Aug. 2 before the opening bell. The Charlotte-based packaging company may not always make the headlines every day, but it performs a function critical to modern life. It provides packaging materials for both food and the shipping of goods. Most Americans know the company for its Bubble Wrap and Cryovac food packaging materials.Source: Shutterstock While the company's products add value to consumers, shareholder return has long proved more elusive. The stock broke out of its long-held range in 2014, only to set a new record high the next year and pull back. Rising profit forecasts show some potential for return. Still, traders should assume that current ranges will define SEE stock until proven otherwise. Expect Flat Earnings, Revenue NumbersWall Street forecasts earnings of 64 cents per share. If this number holds, it will represent no change from the same quarter last year. Analysts also expect revenues of $1.17 billion. The company brought in $1.16 in the year-ago quarter.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSEE stock has beaten earnings estimates in each of the previous seven quarters. However, Sealed Air missed on revenues in the last quarter. They blamed this on currency fluctuations. That began a correction phase in the stock throughout May. It has since recovered most of the losses. Still, the current SEE stock price of around $44 per share comes in below the $46.62 per share level it saw before the last earnings report. It has also experienced analyst downgrades and a firing in the C-suite during this time. * 10 Companies I'd Love to See Go Public Profit Growth May Not Lead to Stock GainsAmid this turbulence, the company has improved profit growth. Over the previous five years, earnings grew at an average rate of 4.5%. However, profits growth has accelerated. Consequently, analysts now expect earnings to increase by 9.2% this year and 11% in fiscal 2020. This outperforms peers such as International Paper (NYSE:IP), Amcor (NYSE:AMCR) or Owens-Illinois (NYSE:OI). One could make an argument that its forward price-to-earnings ratio should move higher than the current 14.5 with the faster profit increases.Unfortunately, this improvement has so far done little to improve the SEE stock price. SEE peaked at almost $56 per share in the summer of 2015. Since that time, it has seen a gradual downward slide. It has also not made it above $50 since that time.Even more worrisome, SEE stock has a long history of range-bound trading. SEE peaked at $35 per share in 1998. It did not move beyond that level until 2014! Unfortunately for bulls, SEE again appears stuck in a range. Long-term holders will receive a little consolation for its rising dividend. Still, at a yield of just under 1.5%, few will buy the equity for these payouts. Should I Buy SEE Stock Before Earnings?Given the history of Sealed Air stock, I would not buy this equity going into earnings. I say that not so much because of the quarter. Despite zero profit growth for this particular quarter, overall profit increases look poised to break into the double digits next year.What traders need is to see if SEE stock breaks its old highs. Twice in 2017, SEE pulled back right as it approached the $50 per share level. If it can then break that level, the next test would come at the $56 per share level. Perhaps the rising yearly profits will finally force the price ceilings to break. However, with the extensive history of trading in a range, investors should treat this as a range-bound stock until it proves itself otherwise.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Although down for the better part of the day, stocks managed to fight their way back into the black on Monday. The S&P 500's 0.02% rise is anything but impressive, but it gives the bulls another day to build their technical and psychological support.Source: Shutterstock Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) held the rally back more than any other name, falling more than 10% after Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) announced it was throwing in the towel in its acquisition effort. Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) was problematic too, however, falling nearly 8% after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock. Analyst David Risinger is worried about underestimated competition and litigation risks related to its opioid business.At the other end of the spectrum, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) jumped more than 3% for a bevy of reasons, including winning two different "car of the year" awards.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy to Pay the Bills As Tuesday's action gets going, however, it's the stock charts of Ford (NYSE:F), International Paper (NYSE:IP) and LyondellBasell Industries (NYSE:LYB) that merit the most attention. Here's why. International Paper (IP)The last time we looked at International Paper back in mid May, it was trapped in a downtrend largely guided by resistance at the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. A near-term technical floor was holding it, but the sellers were persistently chipping away.They ultimately won the fight, dragging shares below that support area. The stock tried to bounce back, as it has since early 2018. As has also been the case since then, however, IP once again lost a fight when another ceiling stepped up to the plate. Things are apt to get worse before they get better. Click to Enlarge * The newest technical ceiling is the 50-day moving average line, plotted in purple. Rebound efforts repelled there in early June and again in early July. * This month's weakness has also been on above-average selling volume, suggesting there are more bears waiting in the wings. * The next major technical floor is around $39.50, marked in red. International Paper shares have found a floor there a few times since the beginning of 2016, and late last year in particular. LyondellBasell Industries (LYB)Two weeks ago, LyondellBasell Industries shares appeared to be on the mend. They had snapped back from a rough May, crawling back above the purple 50-day moving average line and then the gray 100-day average line, and then started to find support at that moving average. However, a push up and off the 100-day line to test the white 200-day moving average line ultimately proved disastrous. All it took was a kiss of the 200-day moving average to lead into a significant loss for that day.Before sliding back into trouble though, LYB stock found support at an established floor again, and appears to be positioning for another shot at clearing the 200-day moving average. It's less than an ideal effort though. Click to Enlarge * The support area in play now is once again the 50-day moving average line, bolstered by horizontal support around $83.60 where shares found a floor a few times in the first quarter of the year. * Although the bleeding stopped before too much damage was done, the recent setback has been on huge volume, and the two rebound days were on subpar volume. * If LyondellBasell can punch through the ceiling near $88, the next most meaningful level is around $96, marked in yellow, where LYB stock found support and resistance several times since 2017. Ford Motor Company (F)Ford has been a tough name to own for a long time. Even with the recent rebound effort, the stock remains down more than 40% from its 2014 peak price.This effort could be different though. While we've seen past recovery effort falter when bumping into an established technical ceiling, reinforcing that very ceiling, this advance is better grounded than most of the past ones have been. Click to Enlarge * The ceiling in question is the resistance line that tags all the key peaks going back to 2015, plotted in blue on the weekly chart. It has being tested again. * Since early June, F stock has found pretty persistent support at its purple 50-day moving average line. This support is highlighted on the daily chart. * Although it wouldn't readily appear this is the case on the daily chart, the weekly chart's Chaikin line -- by virtue of pointing upward again after crossing zero in April -- says there's consistent buying volume in place.As of this writing, James Brumley held a long position in Ford.

Shares of containerboard companies fell Monday, after KeyBanc Capital analyst Adam Josephson turned bearish on several companies in the sector, as industry fundamentals continue to deteriorate. Shares of WestRock Co. fell 2.7%, Sealed Air Corp. shed 2.2%, Packaging Corp. of America slumped 2.2% and International Paper Co. slid 1.0%. The stocks were the four-biggest decliners within the SPDR Materials Select Sector ETF , which edged up 0.1%. Josephson cut his ratings on all four companies to underweight from sector weight. Although containerboard fundamentals are "worse now than in recent years," Josephson said valuations are now lower than in line with historical averages. That suggests consensus estimates for the companies have further room to fall, which suggests the stocks are more likely to underperform over the next 9 to 12 months. The stocks' selloff comes as the materials ETF has climbed 15.7% year to date, while the S&P 500 has gained 20.1%.
