I'm Jared Levy, Senior Stock Strategist at Zacks, and today I will show how you could make some easy money this earnings season.
The key is a research breakthrough that statisticians and analysts had spent careers searching for. In vain.
But our researchers were highly motivated. They knew that if positive earnings surprises could be consistently detected BEFORE they're reported, it would be a dream come true.
This would, in effect, remove "Positive Earnings Surprise" from the investment vocabulary. Because if you could predict, with high certainty, when a company will report earnings greater than what analysts had estimated it wouldn't be a surprise at all.
Now let's take this a step further:
What if you could ride the "price pops" that result from these so-called earnings surprises, right from their very beginnings? And then step off just before the prices subside again?
Overall, your gains could be breathtaking.
That's what our research breakthrough has accomplished. In fact, its rate for predicting positive earnings surprises has exceeded 80%. Now this doesn't mean we'll make money more than 80% of the time.
But it certainly gives us an advantage over those who are not clued in on surprises until AFTER they've reported.
Without a doubt, you and I will never look at earnings reports in the same way again.
How did our Zacks researchers come up with the strategy that takes "surprise" out of "positive earnings surprise"?
It was three years in the making. Our research team created a custom database with nine much debated and carefully selected items.
Then, with trial and error, they used it to analyze the "whispers" of analysts that precede earnings announcements.
They knew the folly of trying to heed all of those whispers, so instead, their mission was to cut through the guesswork and zero in on those whispers that had proven to be the most accurate predictors.
This would, in essence, transform earnings season from a crap shoot into a turkey shoot.
Finally, in August, 2010, all those years of research paid off. That's when our team ran the final tests for a strategy that predicts positive earnings surprises with greater than 8-out-of-10 precision.
It combines the quantitative Zacks Rank data with two little-used metrics that detect only the most accurate whispers.
You may be wondering what these indicators are. They're trade secrets and we don't want to make them public. It's important to be sure they don't lead others to the stocks before we can buy in at the lowest prices ahead of the masses.
But I will say that they remind me of chocolate and peanut butter. Separately, each works nicely, but when you put them together? Well, it's hard to imagine anything better!
Now I should point out that we're not talking about long-term value stocks here. This strategy builds profitability by targeting many relatively small gains over short holding periods. It snaps up companies one to five days before their earnings announcements, then generally rides them from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.
Fast-Paced "Whisper" Gains
Let me show you a handful of our big whisper gains, each in about one week or less. Of course, not all of them are that big, but these examples will give you an idea of what can be accomplished by this strategy.
I don't want you to miss out on future "surprises" like those. So I am delighted to offer you the recommendations and insights of our Whisper Trader in a way you cannot afford to miss.
