Dear Subscribers, Earnings, The Market and More
The bulk of earnings reports continue to handily beat estimates and yet the market remains unimpressed. Simply the pendulum of investor fear and greed pushed too far in the direction of greed for a while.

Keep a watchful eye for companies experiencing the best earnings estimate revisions after their reports and stock up on those shares.
