    Ashraf, what are you implying? Why is the stock down after earnings beat? Molycorp misses earnings and is up AH.
    Express inc beat earnings and was down 10% at opening but menswearhouse misses expectations and goes up. I can't seem to make sense of earnings.

    Shorts love ULTA> I bet the shorts will cover in the next week or two after a big drop like today, although guidance was weak.

     

    There are several factors that affect a stocks move following a quarterly report. It is not just EPS. In fact, EPS is usually the least of investors concerns. We are looking at several different cash flow models, the quality of the earnings (was it deferred tax gains, inventory build up, or some other accounting magic or actually a good old fashion revenue beat?), as well as the guidance that management provides for the coming quarter/year.
