  • Why You Are Completely Wrong About Forward Guidance Being More Important Than Results [View article]
    Great article - some of the papers proving the post announcement drift came back in 2007 when the (at that time) nine years of data from WhisperNumber were studied. The paper, 'Do Bulls and Bears Listen to Whispers', was an independent academic article published in the Financial Decisions Journal. It indicated, "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." That paper can be found here http://bit.ly/IafkDB. Probably is a little more viable than a paper based on a year or two of data.

    Your title states "What's The Whisper Anyway?", and yet in the article you 'source' two companies that 'don't' have whisper numbers??

    Should be a piece of information to be aware of. Whether its used as a stand alone indicator (it can be) or as part of an overall review, still worthwhile data to be aware of.

    We agree. Our focus is short term earnings reaction (between 1 and 30 day post earnings). More trader focus than investor focus.

    And by your own logic, no one should trust you - you have no name, no profile, no info listed on seekingalpha...you are not 'sourced' so should your comments and questions be ignored?

    But an article written by a guy, not associated with those sites, mentions their data, and their 'source' (or the author) is not questioned? Point is I don't see any comments on that article from you, why not?
    As for our data (or any data), of course you don't trust it, until you do your homework, and find that our data, collected over the past 15 years, has provided greater returns when used as an investment vehicle, has a greater impact on stock movement than analysts consensus estimates, and that investors listen to whispers in the bull market and whispers help explain the post-earnings announcement drift. All via independent published academic studies, and of course through history itself.
    So tell me, what 'sources' of data do you trust?

    Not sure I understand your point - articles published a few hours earlier have more value? As do whisper numbers from other sites not called WhisperNumber.com?

    Just some insight - those sites supposedly collect data from 'analysts'. Do you trust analysts to be looking out for your best interests?
