Unless you have some inside information, trading before earnings is pure gambling.

Or you can have thorough research on recent new to increase your odds.

Who else is locking in these #gainz with me?


I found his album's cover art. I'm going 3X short.

I agree 100% that it is a gamble to trade earnings.  I have seen from reading equity analyst reports that anything they are told is crafted by management.  You may be able to take cues about reaffirming guidance vs. not reaffirming but again there is a lot of speculation.

You going 3x short for the whole year?  We still haven't seen what China would do if they tossed around the word austerity.

Read the earnings call transcript. So much good stuff baked in and no puppy killing. Consider me baffled.

At least rht is shielding some of my woes. Up over 4% today.

Well, it only ended down 7.8%...

Not great, but that's why those after-hours numbers are not really reliable...they were twice as low.

Beat guidance too...just not by as much as the analysts has guessed. When that happens the executives are probably like facepalm.gif "We fucking told you guys what it was going to be and we did a little better, why aren't you happy?"
