  • Is Disney Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    If you dismiss data based on nothing more than your opinion, you're ignorant.

    Yes, the article is geared toward short term trading, and while it may have no value to you, it does to plenty others.

    And you did not read the article or you would know that the whisper numbers have nothing to do with analysts.

    Not sure how you came to that conclusion, but no, that's not our main point.

    Yes, absolutely, long term investors looking to add to their position should view a potential dip following earnings as a buying opportunity.

    That is good info but involves a great deal more risk. The data presented in the article has the catalyst of beating or missing the whisper number, then the option of taking appropriate action.

    Not sure where that came from, but as indicated in the article:

    if GILD misses- stock goes down few points.
    if GILD beats- upside very limited.

    again, all short term.

    We see it more as a great alternative to analysts and as a way to gauge the real expectations of the market.

    We completely agree, but the whisper numbers in the article are not from analysts (guess you didn't read the article?)

    Disney has topped the whisper in three of the past four quarters by an average of 10 cents, so a current expectation only 1 penny ahead of analysts is rather tame and should probably not be considered 'unfair'.

  • Will Facebook Top The Whisper Number This Quarter? [View article]
    Would it help if you actually read the response? For such a smart guy you're not very observant.

    "Well.. Judging by the severe lack of articles written... I'd say that we can expect a flat quarter.."

    Good observation - thought it was just our site that had such a lack of attention to this stock! As stated in the article, Google needs to string together some great quarters with great results to see some decent price movement. Thanks for posting your comment and insight.

    We'll jump in to try and answer what the reader should have gained (and we'll try and eliminate all the supposed advertising that got in the way of our point), or at least we'll try to simplify for readers such as yourself that may not be able to comprehend some very basic analysis:

    "The overall average post earnings price move is 'negative' (beat the whisper number and see weakness, miss and see weakness) when the company reports earnings".

    Simple enough, still with us?

    Facebook earnings smashed expectations, beating Wall Street by six cents and the whisper number (as seen in the advertisement above) by five cents. So one would expect the stock to jump higher. But wait, there was that statement about negative price movement....(again, in the advertisement above).

    This means that that the stock price of Facebook tends to fall (move lower, be negative, etc.) following earnings no matter what they report.

    Facebook opened trading trading today at 76.81 and currently trades at 76.34 (and as low as 74.21). That's l o w e r...(I'm typing slow so that you can keep up)...

    Good? (Not sure we could make it any more simple or clear).
