Negative Revisions

I have been at Zacks for about six years now.  I have looked at literally thousands of stocks and their earnings estimate revision history.  I have never seen a stock that had 10 negative revisions to this quarter, this year and next year.

That is not something that I want to see from a stock.

Earnings History

Despite all those negative revisions, the earnings history remains intact.  The last four reports were all beats, but just beating is not really good enough. The beats point to a management team that can effectively communicate with Wall Street so that expectations at the time of the report are never too high.




Wall Street’s Next Amazon
