  • Facebook: Strong Q3 Earnings Release Will Send Shares To $113  [View article]
    If history is any guide! Then short FB.

    The market is pricing an upwards move as stated above but the last 6 quarters have shown otherwise.

    Contrarian investing 101.
    http://bit.ly/1XOuYYI

    "FB has been considerably more successful on the charts, boasting a 32% year-to-date lead to sit at $103.11. In fact, the shares topped out at a record $105.12 last week, and have outperformed the broader S&P 500 Index (SPX) by almost 10 percentage points during the past three months.

    Amid these impressive gains, option bettors have been wagering on additional upside, per the stock's 10-day ISE/CBOE/PHLX call/put volume ratio of 2.95. Not only does this ratio indicate traders have bought to open roughly triple the number of calls as puts over the past two weeks, it also ranks in the high 88th percentile of its annual range. In today's action, weekly calls account for four of the top five strikes, with a possible mix of buy- and sell-to-open activity at the at-the-money weekly 11/6 103-strike call.

    In terms of earnings, Facebook Inc will step up to the plate tomorrow night. While the stock has averaged a single-day post-earnings move of 4.4% after the company's last eight reports, the options market is pricing in a bolder 5.7% swing, based on the equity's near-term ATM straddle.

  • Notable earnings before Thursday’s open  [View news story]
    Making a bet on the day of the earnings is bad investing as there is a 50% chance you have it wrong.
    The better way is to check the charts 1 week before the earnings to see what the smart investors are doing as if they are expecting a beat they are buying before the news. Look at any chart and you will find that there is tendency for a stock to move up or down 5 days before the earnings. On the earnings the stock will blow up or down and then retrace to fill the gap. So it is too late to buy today but buy after the gap is closed in the direction of the gap or sell if it downwards.
    Take EBAY yesterday: its week performance building into earnings was -1.22% so the market was expecting it to drop, its monthly performance was -5.47% and three months was -14.9%. So if you bought ebay 15 minutes before the bell you were definitely making a contrarian bet that paid off as of writing this.

    eBay released its latest earnings report after closing bell last tonight, posting non-GAAP earnings of 43 cents per share on $2.1 billion in revenue, a 5% increase on a currency neutral basis but a 2% decline on a reported basis. Analysts had been expecting earnings of 40 cents per share on $2.09 billion in revenue.

    Stock price 26.05 or 7.6% up.

    It created an island gap and is meeting resistance at 26.05 which is the high of Oct 7th 2015. This is a bullish reversal but make sure that there is huge volume to confirm the breakout trend otherwise the gap will close.
    Expect ebay to move towards 27.5 USD.

    Got lucky! or be a good investor and start acting a week before earnings.
