The Pros and Cons of Earnings Season

The market continues to tread water under 1700. In the meantime, each stock is being judged by the merits of their earnings announcement.

For some that means analyst praise and higher share prices.

For others it means investor scorn and painful losses.

Because of the importance of earnings season we have built a new section into each of your daily Profit from the Pro emails. Just scroll down to the Earnings HQ section and make good use of the tools and information now at your disposal. (Especially the earnings whisper trading ideas in the Best Earnings ESP Stocks table).
