  • Does The Netflix Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    "without any conclusion as how NFLX would move after the earnings release"

    Did you read the article? Or are you looking for some magic ball report that definitely states which direction NFLX will move? When you find that article please let us know, we'd be interested too.

    Would be worth checking if we were stating something incorrectly. Your price assumptions are incorrect - we look at a true post earnings analysis, meaning next available market open price (from earnings release) thru end of day price. The end of day price you suggest is obviously gained prior to the earnings release (which may be 4:01, or 4:15, or 4:30 etc). While the article is focused on short term price reaction, its post earnings short term price reaction.

    Wow, you have a knack for stating the obvious. How about adding 'buy low and sell high', or 'don't let emotions run your trade', or some other over used cliche that adds nothing to the conversation.

  • Whisper Number Impact: What To Expect From AMD's Earnings [View article]
    Thank you. We don't have enough historical data for Nokia for an article, but we'll look to see if we can get some interest for the current quarter whisper number.

  • Is Intel Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    So now you're saying "past couple of quarters" is the same as the 61 quarters we indicate in the article? You do know 61 quarters of data is equal to just over 15 years, right? Or are you just picking one piece of the article to try and make some irrelevant unsubstantiated point that 'good' analysis must be extensive and complex? Please change your username to Rube Goldberg, would make more sense in the long run and help support your 'statements'.

    Not sure what you mean by "Analysis is too simple". Do patterns or consistencies require extensive, complicated, complex, and often times impossible to understand verbiage in order to provide value? Have you ever heard of the phrase "keep it simple stupid"? There are numerous factors that can and do affect price movement before, during, and after earnings. But we've found some very powerful consistencies (over the past 15+ years) in the data you see in the article. We've never found the need to slap lipstick on it just for the sake of making it 'more complex'. More complex does not equate to better information.

  • Whisper Number Impact: How Will CSX Investors React To Earnings? [View article]
    So tell me (us), in all your wisdom, how would an ad (assuming banner or box) convey the same information as that found in an article? You are apparently equating them as the same, yes?

    And what is your position on CSX - long, short, no position at all?

    While the data provided does include an earnings expectation, it also provides what has happened post earnings when the company exceeds or falls short of that expectation. So there is post earnings price movement analysis to plan ahead as it were. Both stock and options traders look to take advantage of price volatility both before and after earnings announcements.

    Crazy? Yes, but no surprise as you read the article, right?

    "...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."

    Part of the problem may be because you still give value to analysts estimates.

    "With analysts playing the guidance game more than ever, their forecasts tell us less than ever about where the stock market is going. So over the next few weeks, don't be fooled into thinking that there is anything surprising about the flood of positive earnings surprises. And don't believe anyone who tries to tell you that these fake surprises mean nothing but good times are ahead for the economy and the stock market." (see http://on.wsj.com/1vZUj1z)

    In other words, a 5 cent beat (of analysts estimates) is just a 5 cent beat, find another source for correlation between price movement and earnings expectations.

    You could take into account a host of other scenarios and time frames, pre and post earnings. We don't, and the information provided has been quite accurate over our 15+ years.
