  • 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.

  • 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."

    Wall Street Journal, July 2nd, 2011

    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.

  • Does The Yahoo Whisper Number Indicate Investor Confidence? [View article]
    First, there is no definitive correlation between price movement and beating or missing the analysts estimate. See the following:

    http://bit.ly/1nDpPm5

    Second, it's not any where near a 'no-brainer that a beat will boost the stock' (care to back up that no-brainer statement with some data?).

    As indicated in the article (but you had to have read past the first bullet point) "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".

    And as for your statement 'this article offers no ideas', well you're wrong again. We offer data, and price movement expectation. You'll need to decide what action is best for your personal situation. You're looking for an idiot proof statement and apparently need to be told what position to take (are you a sheep?).

  • Bank Of America's Whisper Number Showing Confidence [View article]
    So in support of your first non-sensical statement your come back is 'lots of hedge funds lose lots of money'?? Love the specific support you provide like 'lots of' and 'nearly all', not to mention your unsupported 'use the S&P as their template'. Great argument you're not making here... So smart and yet still trolling message boards...

    So you've studied our 15 years of data, read the supporting independent academic published studies, and came to that conclusion? (Numerous hedge funds would disagree with you). Your comment, based on nothing but personal opinion, is not a very constructive endeavor.

    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.

    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.
