  • Does The P&G Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    We get it, you disagree with our articles and analysis, no need to keep coming back to state as much. And we don't cover stocks just to get views or clicks, we cover based on the data we have.

  • Whisper Number Impact: How Will Kraft Investors React To Earnings? [View article]
    What are you, 5 years old? That's the equivalent of 'i told you so', or 'so are you'. Look, you screwed up. You made an ignorant and nonsensical statement to start this 'conversation'. Be a man, own up to it, and move on.

    You could think a lot of things, doesn't mean they're worth putting in writing.

  • Is Whole Foods Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    Thanks Liam, not everyone agrees with it but it really is the most consistent and limited risk way of looking at post earnings price movement (especially when companies report at random times 4:01, 4:05, 4:15, 4:30, 5:00 etc).

    Great comment, but what article are you commenting on? We don't mention analysts, have nothing to do with analysts, and we certainly don't get any data from analysts (we do tell you where our number does come from in the article that you obviously didn't read). Next time, make sure you're commenting on the correct article, and that you think before you write.

    Our data is based on intra-day price reaction (from market open point to market close point following earnings) to represent a true (and consistent) post earnings price move.

    "analysts estimates have proven to be less reliable than meteorological weather forecasts for snow falls", we agree so whats your point?

    "whisper noise", we disagree. But I am assuming you've studied our data from the past 15 years, read the independent academic studies, and reviewed all recent data and come to that conclusion? Or should I assume you are just ignorant and spouting unwarranted and unfounded noise?

  • Whisper Number Impact: How Will Pfizer's Stock Move After Earnings? [View article]
    Just another ignorant statement (unless of course you've investigated and researched the information, how it can used, prior academic studies, etc)

    If you dismiss proven information out of ignorance, do the same...

    Geez, you are one misguided, ignorant and grumpy (old assuming?) man!! (But I'm not sure because you hide behind your username).

    So you say we have short money behind the number, but what proof do you have of that? None, because we don't take positions and never have. In fact, in the article that you still haven't read above, we've indicated the average price move of Apple following earnings is 'positive'. Hmmm...if we're shorting we certainly don't do a very good job of setting it up.

    Then you have faith in 'real' analysts and think they are credible because they provide a name. Here are some names that may ring a bell: Henry Blodget, Mary Meeker, Jack Grubman, Frank Quattrone, Kang Gao, Trent Martin, and John Kinnucan to name a few (and don't forget SAC Capital). These are just a few of the people you defend because they assign a 'name' to their analysis. Good for you, if you like being misled, and losing money, but there are literally thousands on this site and others that would certainly disagree with your staunch defense of these people and their like.

    Here's some more non-data for you regarding your 'good' analysts you love and respect so much: "In short, there isn't anything surprising about earnings surprises. They aren't the exception; they are the rule. "All the numbers are gamed at this point," says James A. Bianco, president of Bianco Research. That little tidbit was cited in the Wall Street Journal. (I know what you're thinking, none of that is true because you didn't say it or think it.)

    You've stated (incorrectly) numerous times that all whispers are higher than consensus. While I am sure someone out there believes what ever you say, whether it be fact or fiction, and that you also believe everything you say, be it fact or fiction, this statement is pure fiction. I gave you the answer before but you just ignored it (I have a feeling even if I showed you everything you asked for you would still ignore and not believe what you see. I know you've never visited our website, and yet you continue to spout so called facts about our business that aren't true. Kind of like complaining about a movie while never having viewed it.) Some of the more popular companies (this quarter) with whispers below the consensus include NFLX, MCD, YHOO, YUM and LUV. And companies yet to report with lower numbers include COH, EMN, AXP, ACI, and PG. So why have you ignored those? Because they don't fit your misleading and ignorant statements? Because you don't do any homework or research? This stuff isn't being hidden anywhere - its available for free at our website.

    And you also stated "I've NEVER seen a whisper number that was in line with consensus - ALWAYS higher". Do you need me to list those or are you finally willing to do your own research? (Here are a few, again all from within the past few weeks: STZ, LSI, TSN, SBUX and SOHU. So again, you're wrong.)

    Now, let me educate you on crowd-sourcing (I know learning something new isn't your strong point but I'll try anyway). The power of crowd-sourcing is in the 'crowd'. It allows for a group of (in this case) earnings expectations to be collected from a diverse group of individuals, and this method has proven quite successful in many fields, including ours. No one individual has power or influence, the community has power as a whole. This actually reduces manipulation by any one individual, and increases accuracy. Once you give power to one individual, then corruption, deception, and manipulation will soon follow (see short list of 'names' above.)

    You're fighting on the wrong side here my friend, and your ideas and perceptions are completely wrong. That aside, whatever I write here will not satisfy you. You're happy only when you disagree or complain or something doesn't fit into your very narrow minded way of thinking (I've been reading your other posts). And no one can ever win an argument against ignorance because no matter the facts you'll always so "I don't believe it" or "I need more".

    So with that I'm done responding, I hope the back and forth has been entertaining for the readers here. Good luck to all in their trading.

    Again, a company that posts their data without a name attached has no credibility...do you hold the same standards to a person that posts a comment with no name attached? (And you do know we have a website that provides this data well prior to earnings right? I'm sure you've registered and investigated what we do because you're so knowledgeable about us, correct? You do know we're not analysts correct? Of course you do, all the research you've done on us to learn more about us and not look stupid when you post comments...)

    Our price movement analysis is based on intra-day price move, not inclusive of pre-market activity.

    Not that far off for an average price move expectation.
