  • Whisper Number Impact: Earnings Price Movement Preview For Oracle [View article]
    Well aware of the other guys - we run things a bit differently. We don't force the third party ads on you and we don't have any pop ups or third party banner ads on the site. We also know they will have a broker call you if you provide them with a phone number (we've been blamed for that as well). Our site is clean, ad free (unless you count our own product ads), we won't harass you, and yes, we do provide what we believe to be valuable information.

    And even if you don't register with us, we publish articles here on almost every company we have a whisper number for. So you could always just follow us here on SA or even on twitter.

    And just to add to ckoffends insight, as indicated in the article "Since 1998, WhisperNumber.com has been tracking and publishing "crowd sourced estimates" for earnings. We call these earnings expectations whisper numbers. Our whisper numbers are gained from individual investors and traders just like you who have registered with our site. "

    In regard to GE, we stated in our GE earnings article:
    "The average price movement through thirty trading days when the company reports earnings is negative (beat the whisper see weakness, miss and see weakness)."
    see http://seekingalpha.co...

    So you agree that earnings price movement analysis is not valid based on what was stated in the article actually taking place?

    "Anyone who listens to whispers & banks trades on whispers has not studied history".
    "there are always possible future events and the interpretation of past events to allow a company to move the share price"

    Did you just contradict yourself? Or are you saying historical price movement based on whisper numbers is not valid, while historical events and interpretation is valid?

    Not sure you actually read the article. Great at criticizing, not so great at reading though.

    Yes, there is a 50 - 50 chance of the company beating or missing the whisper number, but it clearly states in the article (that thing above with all the words) "Our primary focus is on post earnings price movement." And then the article (again, found above) goes on to look at how the company reacts to beating or missing that whisper number.

    So while the number is a part of the presentation, the focus (for most individuals that can read and comprehend a pretty straight forward and simple analysis) is on the price movement when the company does beat or miss that whisper number.

    So while it was stated twice (in the article) "The overall average price movement is as expected through thirty trading days when the company reports earnings", it seems you didn't comprehend that.

    You may assume that this (beat the number see strength, miss and see weakness) is the case for all companies (you seem to make many assumptions) but its not. You may assume this is the case when a company beats or misses the analysts estimates, but its not.

    So for everyone else that read the article, this is pretty apparent.

    Then other readers (not you of course) actually look at the price reaction as well (again, in the article above). So they can take a long or short post earnings position based on the beat or miss, then have a price expectation and timeframe for that position.

    I hope that the information provided is much more clear now. I was typing slow assuming you can't read very fast...

  • Whisper Number Impact: Earnings Preview For Qualcomm [View article]
    Jan 30th close: $63.53
    Jan 31st open: $67.09
    Feb 6th (5th trading day following earnings): $67.18

    After hours move: +5.4%
    5 day move: +0.1% (our data is wrong, its actually lower)

    But glad you came on here, didn't asked any clarification about how the number was calculated, and tried to make yourself look o so smart. Now go see if you can catch any grammatical errors...

  • Whisper Number Impact: Apple Earnings Expectations Show Strong Confidence [View article]
    The 2% is an intra day move - as indicated in the article, 'Last quarter the company topped a very confident whisper number by thirteen cents. After hours saw a 10.5% price drop, and the stock is down 12% to date'.
