Hillbent scans the market for significant positive and negative earnings surprises which may be potential catalysts for future bullish or bearish price action. The results generated are not intended to be comprehensive but allow investors to focus on the top or bottom earnings results and provide a starting point for further research efforts and the market direction.

It is important to note that a positive, negative, or in-line earnings surprise is not necessarily a respective overall positive, negative, or neutral event for a reporting company. Some of these companies may still be experiencing year-over-year positive, negative, or flat growth rates.
