    Should be a piece of information to be aware of. Whether its used as a stand alone indicator (it can be) or as part of an overall review, still worthwhile data to be aware of.

    We agree. Our focus is short term earnings reaction (between 1 and 30 day post earnings). More trader focus than investor focus.

    And by your own logic, no one should trust you - you have no name, no profile, no info listed on seekingalpha...you are not 'sourced' so should your comments and questions be ignored?

    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?

    Not sure I understand your point - articles published a few hours earlier have more value? As do whisper numbers from other sites not called WhisperNumber.com?

    Just some insight - those sites supposedly collect data from 'analysts'. Do you trust analysts to be looking out for your best interests?

    The 2% is an intra day move - as indicated in the article, 'Last quarter the company topped a very confident whisper number by thirteen cents. After hours saw a 10.5% price drop, and the stock is down 12% to date'.

    Appreciate the comments, and you touch on a main reason we collect the expectations we do - 'Oppenheimer sounds like he wants to create more realistic estimates, or at least reduce people's expectation of constantly beating the number by some huge margin so that when it does, it'll pop more', and that may very well be the case. But expectations will take some time to catch up to reality. For now, it appears these statements (from Op) have been ignored, and expectations remain high, and expectations (tend to) move markets.

    As for the second point, we have heard similar requests primarily from options traders. We haven't taken the step to provide the information yet.

    Just confused as to why you make it personal against the data provided. No, the data is not representative of all investors/traders and we do not state such, but over 15 years it has proven itself accurate in determining post earnings price movement. The article is not 'trying' (as you indicate) to present anything other than factual data and earnings expectations from a group of individuals that have proven a good bit of accuracy and value over time. That type of comment makes you come across as paranoid.

    We saw similar comments last quarter when our data indicated a much higher number than the analysts, but AAPL topped those expectations. So again, no agenda here, not 'trying' anything, just presenting data.

    Trying to understand what you mean by 'good try, though'?
