  • Be Aware Of The Myth That Is Called Non-GAAP Earnings [View article]
    And although companies like ours provide an alternative earnings expectation, companies like SeekingAlpha do not allow us to publish articles on the site - so you're stuck with the numbers that Wall Street (and SeekingAlpha) want you to see.

    Not really sure why anyone is surprised about the earnings game - we first wrote about over 15 years ago (as did hundreds of others over the past 15 years). Nothing has changed, and nothing will change...

    Which is worse, non-gaap earnings, non-gaap estimates proven to lack credibility but still used by sites like SeekingAlpha as a go to, or so-called crowd-sourced equity research sites like SeekingAlpha not allowing (proven) better expectations on their site?

    "The company exceeded their own guidance, analysts estimates, whisper numbers, and crowd sourced estimates." Readers will never know for sure as SA no longer accepts articles on crowd-sourced data or whisper numbers.

    Not that it matters to you, you'll figure out a way to say this link to an article doesn't answer your question

    Moxi, re "Also, the stock up today and was up yesterday. So where is the "Lacking Confidence"?"

    could you point out in the article where we indicate the stock (price) is lacking confidence?

    What does the article say that number is (aside for a 'whisper number')?
    It's an earnings expectation, not an estimate. Expectations move markets.

    What does the article say about where that number comes from?
    "the WhisperNumber community", "Since 1998, WhisperNumber.com has been tracking and publishing crowd-sourced estimates for earnings. Our whisper numbers are gained from individual investors and traders just like you that have registered with our site."

    Where in the article does it indicate anything about institutional involvement in that data?
    It doesn't because there isn't any.

    Are there more numbers in the article than just the one (you now state 'published numbers' meaning more than one, so are there others)?
    There is only one number in the article for FB

    Does the article state anything about being more accurate than analysts estimates in 92% of all reports (and yet I see no comments from you attacking analysts estimates)?
    So while our data is more accurate overall, you only judge us on this one number, but again, you miss the point of the whole article which is focused on post earnings price movement. "Our primary focus is on post earnings price movement." The number is a piece of the article.

    So now you call this a pump a dump scenario - based on what again?

    OK, you're right, we've been in business 15 years collecting data all to set up this article for this earnings release for a pump and dump - dang, we thought this was foolproof - 15 years of hard work for nothing. Guess its time to shut down.

    There are no absolutes in the market - a lot of things don't make sense, they are what they are. As malevy said, selling the news is one explanation, unreasonable expectations are another, influential institutional investing another....also in this thread it was mentioned that the negative trend tends to turn after twenty/twenty-five trading days following earnings.
