    Huh? What 'record' are you referring to? What 'predictions' are you referring to? What 'same mistakes' are you referring to? Who do we blame and where is that stated? Please be specific instead of spouting general nonsense.

    No need to get angry with me - just presenting the short term post earnings averages.

    That's for someone else to analyze, we don't do that.

  • Earnings Season Trading Strategy: Time To Catch Falling Knives [View article]
    Just be careful about a comment like "the company fell short of expectations" which may imply "many companies see weakness when missing analysts estimates". There are no studies and no proven correlation between companies seeing strength or weakness when they beat or miss analysts estimates. See http://seekingalpha.co...

  • To Trade or Not to Trade: An Apple Earnings Preview [View article]
    Estimate revisions? Really? Zacks? Really? Analysts? Really?That's your rebuttal to our 'skimpy analysis'? Guess we'd rather be skimpy than without value...

    "With trading volumes down on Wall Street and commission rates near record-low levels, brokerage firms are starved for the revenue that stock trading used to provide. Since changes in earnings forecasts encourage many investors to buy or sell, analysts have an incentive to revise their predictions more often. But that hasn't made the forecasts more accurate. On average, according to Denys Glushkov, research director at WRDS, stock analysts are revising their earnings forecasts nearly twice as frequently as they did a decade ago. And while the typical forecast missed the mark by 1% in the 1990s, that margin of error has lately been running at triple that rate."

    No need to reply or comment on or read our skimpy analysis, I see you've been drinking the kool aid for quite some time.

    I don't think analysts have any credibility:

    "Why You Shouldn't Buy Those Quarterly Earnings Surprises"

    So even meeting analysts estimates really provides very little insight into stock direction.

    Look at what I do here:

    Gumby, I say you have a poor record all in all. You are wrong more often than your statements are right! Why do you continue to repeat the same mistakes? How many SA readers have been mislead (sp) by you? What kind of game is this? I honestly am confused as to why you blame others for your behavior. Honestly, your game is sick.

    Now, does that make sense? How would you respond?

  • Whisper Number Impact: Can Apple Top Earnings Expectations? [View article]
    But an article written by a guy, not associated with those sites, mentions their data, and their 'source' (or the author) is not questioned? Point is I don't see any comments on that article from you, why not?
    As for our data (or any data), of course you don't trust it, until you do your homework, and find that our data, collected over the past 15 years, has provided greater returns when used as an investment vehicle, has a greater impact on stock movement than analysts consensus estimates, and that investors listen to whispers in the bull market and whispers help explain the post-earnings announcement drift. All via independent published academic studies, and of course through history itself.
    So tell me, what 'sources' of data do you trust?

  • Buy Xerox: An Undervalued And Underappreciated Capital Deployment Opportunity [View article]
    Based on the comments alone I never new there was so much emotion surrounding Xerox....you surely ruffled some feathers. And apparently if you read the transcript of an analysts call you have no authority to write about it...

    Good article, thank you.

  • Whisper Number Impact: Apple's Whisper Showing Confidence [View article]
    How does the article read like an ad? And how is your link not considered spam/ad?

    What is the source of your 'pro-analysis' whisper? And what happens if AAPL beats or missed that 'pro' whisper? Has it moved higher or lower as expected? How many quarters of data is it based on? Or is it just a number with no real value for trading?

    Do you think the 'professional' analysts are on your side? Should read this http://bit.ly/NGWZhy, pay attention to myth #3.

  • The Whisper Number Impact: Earnings Preview For Yahoo, AMD, Apple [View article]
    I've yet to hear an argument against doing your own homework. While I believe I have some insight into certain specific data (ie whisper numbers), unlike others I don't think that our data is the "be all end all". So many on here just fight that "this is right and you are wrong" versus "let me keep an open mind and review data and see if it can work for me". I don't get it, so many let emotions get in the way of valid data and better trading. Oh, well, their loss I guess.
