Here are 7 Stocks You Need to Know for Thursday.

Consumer companies will be under the earnings spotlight on Thursday as both Carnival Corporation (CCL | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating) and Pier 1 Imports (PIR | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating) are scheduled to report.

Also reporting on Thursday, though after the market closes, is Research in Motion (RIMM | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating). Analysts are expecting EPS of 93 cents from the maker of the popular BlackBerry.

Both stocks have pulled back toward their 200-day moving average in recent days, with JP Morgan showing especially oversold intraday weakness in Wednesday's trading.

Indicative of the strength in health care stocks on Wednesday was the rally in shares of St. Jude Medical (STJ | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating), which had become dramatically oversold above its 200-day moving average in recent days (at one point, STJ had a 2-period RSI of less than 0.5!).

The stock had been increasingly oversold above the 200-day moving average since a rally in QCOM reversed late last week. An upgrade from Goldman Sachs was credited Wednesday afternoon for the aggressive buying in the oversold stock.
