  • Is Micron Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    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.

  • Whisper Number Impact: What To Expect From Nike's Earnings [View article]
    You answered the 'optional' questions and ignored the 'real' ones.

    You cite the SA Breaking News Team (assuming you know who they are and their track record), which cites Nike 'topping estimates'. You do realize those are analyst estimates, yes? Analyst estimates that have been proven of close to no value in numerous studies and analysis? (see http://on.wsj.com/16z3fGn for just one example).

    One of the main issues we have with 'commenters' like yourself is that you don't even realize how meaningless your comments are. You've made over 400 comments, most just negative or contradictory statements on an authors work, and yet you only have 8 followers. Now while you certainly have the right to voice your opinion, you may just want to save yourself some time and the rest of us the trouble of reading by keeping your nonsense to yourself. Enjoy your nice house in your affluent neighborhood, but find a different hobby. Or better yet, since you are so much smarter than the rest of us, take your big words and write your own articles. Please, enlighten the rest of us with your wisdom and provide information prior to an earnings report or big price move. Put yourself and your amazing insight out there for all to benefit. (Guess you know what the problem in doing that is - you may be wrong, and that just wouldn't be as easy as what you do now.)

  • Whisper Number Impact: What To Expect From Nike's Earnings [View article]
    I'm not exactly sure you used exegesis correctly, but that's for another day.

    Could you answer the following:

    What was the whisper number we indicated in the article?
    What did Nike report today?
    How were we wrong?
    I see from your comments that you find everyone wrong or misguided, and yet never post what you believe prior to an event. Why is that?
    These questions are optional:
    Are you a troll or a Monday Morning Quarterback?
    Do you live in your Mom's basement, or do you have a room all to yourself in her house?

  • Notable earnings before Tuesday's open [View news story]
    Doesn't look as much like a delay as it a change (but changing earnings release time is never a good sign). They did announce the release date and time on Dec 8th, but looks like none of us were paying attention! http://yhoo.it/1qWO0jt So maybe just a simple 'let's see what happens after market close' change.

  • Does The Cisco Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    So you believe your first comment to be on equal ground with an article? Then please write an article titled "I am a long term investor of CSCO and I could care less about earnings". Let me know when that gets published.

    Get back on your meds, you're just spouting gibberish at this point (meaningless gibberish).

  • Does The Cisco Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    You're a long term investor with a long term holding period, so why read this article (or any article about earnings), let alone make a comment? It's dismissive, and meaningless, and you made it quite clear you don't appreciate meaningless things. So why contradict yourself? It's the same as reading an article about Microsoft, then making a comment that you don't trade/invest in Microsoft and the information in the article is meaningless. Your 'comment' adds nothing to any discussion, and trust us, no one cares that you don't care.

    'Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.'

  • Whisper Number: How Will Tesla Investors React To Earnings? [View article]
    The overall average post earnings price move is 'as expected' (in this case miss and see weakness) when the company reports earnings (based on intra-day price movement starting at open tomorrow).
