  • Whisper Number Impact: How Will Amazon Investors React To Earnings? [View article]
    "average post earnings price move". End of day close is not 'after' earnings were released. Day 1: 7/25 open 317.30, close 324.01, +2%

    The data is based on a true post earnings price move, ignoring prior period close, after hours, and pre-market.

  • Does The Yahoo Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    First, there is no definitive correlation between price movement and beating or missing the analysts estimate. See the following:

    Second, it's not any where near a 'no-brainer that a beat will boost the stock' (care to back up that no-brainer statement with some data?).

    As indicated in the article (but you had to have read past the first bullet point) "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".

    And as for your statement 'this article offers no ideas', well you're wrong again. We offer data, and price movement expectation. You'll need to decide what action is best for your personal situation. You're looking for an idiot proof statement and apparently need to be told what position to take (are you a sheep?).

    The whisper did indicate that the number would be stronger than analysts, and the article stated "Our primary focus is on post earnings price movement." The primary reason we respond to certain posts is that they are misleading, or an attempt to sound smart and drag other sheep/trolls to a lower level (talking about you 'all on board'). Look, you may agree or disagree with what we write and bring to the table, but don't dismiss it (or any other article) just because you disagree with it. If there is some possibility it may have some validity then do a little homework (ie read our other articles) and see what the results have been. Then if its worthwhile, add it to your arsenal, but continue to do your own homework and research. Jumping on the bandwagon of trolls like 'all on board' will only hurt your education and trading knowledge. Thinking that 15 years of data is soemhow a weakness is foolish - think about the different markets over that time frame (hi's, lo's, bubbles, tops, etc) and remember the data presented is an average.

    Now, take a look at the first table in the article - shows the greatest weakness when topping the whisper is just one trading day. For all you long term BAC investors, end of day may present a good time to add to your position. Short term, end of day may be a good time to enter a position and take a short term pop in the next few days.

    As for 'all on board', he'll be back here soon saying the BAC weakness is all coincidence, or because of (insert any other reason here), but in no way would he ever admit that our data was correct. And he'll also never go out on a limb and tell you about any of his positions or what his actually price movement thoughts are. He's made 60 comments, has no followers, and is awfully quiet today. Playing Monday morning QB is so easy....putting yourself out there may draw criticism, and that is something he could never handle.

    Because it was foolish (here's what you wrote: ""Really? You base your present estimates on 10 year old data? Shhh, you should only whisper that.) Just not too smart, it was misleading and incorrect, and it did not add to the conversation.

    Yes, we might be wrong, as you may be basing the future on existing positive momentum, considering that momentum may have peaked (short term at least) on Oct 6.

    So in support of your first non-sensical statement your come back is 'lots of hedge funds lose lots of money'?? Love the specific support you provide like 'lots of' and 'nearly all', not to mention your unsupported 'use the S&P as their template'. Great argument you're not making here... So smart and yet still trolling message boards...

    So you've studied our 15 years of data, read the supporting independent academic published studies, and came to that conclusion? (Numerous hedge funds would disagree with you). Your comment, based on nothing but personal opinion, is not a very constructive endeavor.

    Not sure INTC has that in them!! Past four quarters most they've beat the whisper was by 3, so hopefully you'll be happy with that too.
