  • Whisper Number Impact: How Will Ford's Stock Move After Earnings? [View article]
    "What makes you think a negative correlation between whisper number beats and price gains aren't just plain random?"

    Perhaps you didn't read the article or view the tables presented. The data is based on analysis of 45 earnings reports. There is a correlation in this sample, and its premise is supported by two academic studies of our entire database (15 years), and the data itself.

    "If you took a thousand names, wouldn't you expect a certain percentage to correlate negatively just by chance?"

    I guess if you took ten names there's always the possibility a certain percentage would correlate negatively by chance, but...see answer above. And with that thought process, what would you need - a million samples, a billion samples? At some point a valid sample is a valid sample, and we're not saying its 100% accurate if that's what you're implying.

    "after all, you're advising me to invest money based on your methodology."

    That is completely wrong. We aren't 'advising' you to do anything. We've presented data and analysis, what you do with it is up to you.

  • AT&T's Whisper Number Indicating Confidence [View article]
    You'll have to point out for me the pomposity and condescension in the article that brought about your original comment.

    You see, that was an educated and relevant opinion. Stick to those in the future, people will appreciate it more than the regurgitated common data and attempt at humor.

    Hmmm..so you've studied our site, methodology, academic papers, and 15 year track record and that's the conclusion you've come to? Or are you just talking out your a** to try and make yourself feel better about your trading shortcomings?

  • Is Apple Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    The whisper number from our community was $1.28. Apple reported $1.28. The expected price reaction (beat or miss the whisper) as indicated in the article was positive. Apple is moving higher from open.

    Understood Victor, but help me understand what metric are 'pump and dump', 'number made up by drinking buddies', 'manipulation', 'load of manure' etc.? The majority of comments on here were emotional, pure and simple, and had nothing to do with metrics.

    Thanks poco, it was Fox Business News, here's the link if needed:

    And yes, crowd-sourcing does have its advantages (and as I'm sure you've read here, its naysayers as well!!) To us, better data is simply better data.

    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.
