    The whisper number is basically an average of earnings expectations from members that register with our site (registration is verified via email, IP addresses tracked, algorithm use, red flag alerts for inconsistencies). The majority of individuals that register with us classify themselves as individual investors.

    It's been that way forever, and yet reading the comments on this board you'd think that analysts estimates don't need competition...

    Where is everyone now that Apple has reported earnings of $1.28, in-line with the whisper number presented in the article, and five cents ahead of the analysts? You guys are so quick to accept analysts estimates and upgrades/downgrades as be all end all, and so quick to dismiss data that may actually be useful.

    Another dismissal based on lack of knowledge and ignorance, just look at our articles/data for Netflix or McDonalds.

    Read the article, then look at the number Apple reported today, then come back and keep posting nonsense.

    $1.28 reported, as expected....too bad you are quick to dismiss viable data, makes one question what else you are missing.

    How does the $1.28 'figure' seem now?

    That's nice, but what does it mean? What is the UBS track record when they 'reaffirm' a neutral rating on any company let alone IBM? Are thy 100% accurate? 5% accurate? Somewhere in between?

    We actually made a similar comment on another article when a person asked 'how does this info help an investor (vs trader)", and that was our reply.

    Great comment on MAT on the IBM article...

    That aside, we don't make 'predictions' on anything, we do provide expectations and post earnings price movement analysis. And yes, the expectation or MAT was a beat, and the expected price move was positive. The stock has moved against that expectation. We are certainly not hiding it as that information could be found on our free website, in our article posted on Wall St Cheat Sheet, on our Twitter account, our Stocktwits account, and in our StockTalks post here on SA. Is it a 'highlight'? Of course not.

    And there are a few others that have moved against the expectation as well, but again they're out in the public eye as well.

    It's very easy to pick out the one or two or three that moved against the expectations, but its quite foolish to dismiss all the positive data when you do so. Maybe the data isn't for you as it doesn't fit your trading style, but that doesn't mean you need to be a troll and show everyone how 'smart' you are by (supposedly) pointing out a negative with the implication we're 'hiding' it by not making it a 'highlight'. Our information has been and will always be out there *before* the actual earnings are announced on a wide range of forums. And no where do say we're "100% accurate".

    But people like you will always be 100% accurate because you always wait in the shadows, never provide an opinion or outlook, but then jump on the chance after the fact to point out the one or two (or three or four) wrongs or others. Good luck with that.

  • Will Bank Of America Top The Whisper Number This Quarter? [View article]
    Problem is the price reaction, "the strongest price movement of -1.4% comes within one trading day when the company reports earnings that beat the whisper number", and right now we're seeing that take place. And if you look at the first table in the article the average stock price for 30 trading days is basically flat (to negative).

    And that's why we provide expected price reaction - we try to take away focusing on just the 'number', and eliminate some of the 'guess' work of going after a pre-earnings trade, and provide post earnings price movement. Basically, wait and see what the report is, does it beat or miss the whisper, then look at the price movement analysis. And in this case it looks like a miss would have been better than a beat or meet.
