    Really? Wikipedia citing data from 1968 and 1990? You're joking right? You post one comment and that's what you support? HA!

    I'll see your posting and raise you two:

    2007, Do Bulls and Bears Listen to Whispers? (Published Academic Study)
    A post-earnings announcement drift associated with the market reaction to analyst forecasts errors remains a puzzle. This study suggests that whispers help to explain part of the puzzle. The study examines the market reaction to whispers and analysts in bull and bear markets, and finds that investors listen to whispers in the bull market and whispers help explain the post-announcement drift.

    Market Reactions to Earnings Surprises Are Full of Surprises
    The market tends to react positively to positive earnings surprises and negatively to negative earnings surprises. However, this is not always the case; in fact, almost 40% of all positive earnings surprises were met with negative excess market reactions on the order of –2%.

    Agree, why collect analysts estimates.

    If you read the article you would have known that our data (proven and backed by independent studies) does not come from analysts.

    I have witnessed the same, however, there is not, and has never been, any proven (long term or short term) consistent correlation between beating or missing analysts estimates and a stock moving higher or lower. Here is a great article for reference on the subject:

    Walter, Are there any studies or data that show a stock will move higher when they top analyst estimates?

  • Is Procter & Gamble Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    Take away your first and last sentence, and you make a great deal of sense. In fact, you almost use the exact words of an article we wrote back 2006 or so ("The word 'analyst' implies that there is actual analysis being conducted. This appears far from the truth", see http://bit.ly/1zQALUZ, you didn't learn that stuff from us did you?) But those statements actually have information, sources, and studies that indicate analyst estimates are bunk.

    As for your first and last sentences, what data or studies do you have that whisper numbers are 'more ridiculous' and 'mean nothing'? Please provide us with this insight.

    Or didn't you even bother to read the article to find out where our data comes from?

    Completely agree (too many individuals feel their opinion is valued when it adds nothing to the article content or discussion - if its not relevant to you then move on, no one wants/needs to hear that "this is not relevant to me").

    Great, you're a long term investor with an opinion about long term investing. Obviously the article is primarily geared toward short term trading (or long term position add). So while it may be a waste of time for you (as is your comment then), its not for many others. And you probably should ignore earnings related articles (or all articles considering you're long term position).
