We're near the tail end of earnings season, but some notable companies are still left to report quarterly results. Two stocks we'll be watching this week are homebuilder Toll Brothers Inc (NYSE:TOL) and video game developer Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO). Both companies are set to report earnings before the opening bell tomorrow, and history suggests shares of TOL and TTWO could be set to rally after the events. 

Options Traders Bet on Another Post-Earnings Rally for TOL Stock

Toll Brothers stock earlier today notched an annual high of $38.29, which brings its 12-month advance to over 41%. The shares have been extremely strong around quarterly earnings reports, too, moving higher in the session after such events in five straight quarters. Last quarter, TOL shares jumped 6.1% in their post-earnings session, and the options market is pricing in an 8% swing for tomorrow, regardless of direction. 

Options data suggests traders are expecting an upside move stock, too. Toll Brothers has a 10-day call/put volume ratio of 3.30 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), meaning call buying has tripled put buying over the past two weeks. Analysts are also bullish, with 80% recommending to buy TOL stock.
