Stock Moves Only Hedge Funds Get To See

I predict earnings surprises for companies in the Russell 1000 for Institutional Investors (aka Hedge Funds).

My track record: 60% of my calls have had a positive return. The average return per trade is 1.2% for a 2 day hold.

Why earnings surprises Like Willie Sutton said about robbing banks, "because that's where the money is." Earnings day is when a company's stock price will move the most. Up or down. It's almost pure Alpha.

My System: Sorry, my black box is proprietary.

Why am I sharing it: I want to expand my business. Retail investors don't expect me to spend hours on the phone each week.

What to expect Each week, prior to earnings releases, I will publish: company, position to take (long or short), specific dates to open and close the position.

Good luck!

----------------------------------------------

Special note for this week: Predictions typically split evenly between longs and shorts. This week is heavily skewed to shorts.
