  • Is Intel Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    To an investor looking to add to his current position, it can represent a buying opportunity (after one trading day) if the company reports earnings that beat the whisper number expectation, and the stock sees the expected (but limited pullback) within one trading day. You'll be buying at a low in current trading).

    If the company reports earnings short of the whisper number, you'd want to move quick and add to your position to take advantage of the expected price move within 30 trading days (so that you're adding at what would would be a low in current trading).

    To a trader, its a short term pop if the company reports earnings short of the whisper number and the expected price move occurs.

    (Hope that answers your question, save the immature comments for the yahoo message boards - if an article seems 'worthless' to you move on.)

    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.

  • Is Disney Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    Disney has topped the whisper in three of the past four quarters by an average of 10 cents, so a current expectation only 1 penny ahead of analysts is rather tame and should probably not be considered 'unfair'.

  • 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?

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

  • 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.

    If you dismiss data based on nothing more than your opinion, you're ignorant.

    Yes, the article is geared toward short term trading, and while it may have no value to you, it does to plenty others.

    And you did not read the article or you would know that the whisper numbers have nothing to do with analysts.

  • Does The Gilead Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    Not sure where that came from, but as indicated in the article:

    if GILD misses- stock goes down few points.
    if GILD beats- upside very limited.

    again, all short term.

  • Is Procter & Gamble Poised To Beat The Whisper Number? [View article]
    Great, you're a long term investor with an opinion about long term investing. Obviously the article is primarily geared toward short term trading (or long term position add). So while it may be a waste of time for you (as is your comment then), its not for many others. And you probably should ignore earnings related articles (or all articles considering you're long term position).
