Stocks Ready to Pop or Drop with Earnings; But Which Ones? (INTC, GOOG, IBM, EBAY, GS, ISRG, GE, SBUX, AAPL)
Stocks tend to be most volatile around earnings season, when a good or bad report can make or break it. However, a good or even great earnings report doesn’t necessarily translate into a huge pop for a stock.
Intel (INTC) is a great example, as the chip giant crushed EPS estimates, beat on the top line, recorded record gross margins, and offered strong guidance, yet the stock still fell.
Conversely, a seemingly poor earnings report doesn’t necessarily mean a stock will plunge, or even go down for that matter.
With the bulk of earnings season upon on, BullMarket.com has started a new earnings preview feature with its service. The previews look at historical earnings data and EPS trends; examine past investor reactions to earnings in various contexts; gives options activity analysis; reviews previous-quarter earnings; and gives an opinion on both what earnings will look like and how investors will react based on the aforementioned data points.
It’s easy to predict that Apple (AAPL) will soar past analyst EPS estimates when it reports next week, but what type of stock movement should investors expect based on past history?
In its earnings previews for the week of January 18th-22nd, BullMarket.com looks at eight popular stocks, including Google (GOOG), Apple, IBM (IBM), eBay (EBAY), Goldman Sachs (GS), Intuitive Surgical (ISRG), General Eclectic (GE), and Starbucks (SBUX).
Find out which one of these stocks looks like it might be ready to pop, and which one looks like it could tumble.
