Taser zapped after report, AMC sliding despite boffo numbers, Yelp weakening ahead of earnings

Breakout

Making the list today as measured by your yahoo finance searches are:

Tase me, bro! Taser (TASR) shares are lagging despite the company coming in ahead of estimates. The maker of the shocking devices and wearable cameras for cops earned 6-cents a share on $36.2 million in sales. Taser said international business were electric, coming in at over $10 million for the second straight quarter.

Shares of AMC Entertainment (AMC) are trending after the theater chain reported a boffo first quarter. Revenues and net income both came in well ahead of analyst expectations, driven by an increased emphasis on food and comfort. Remember all that bad weather that was supposed to be keeping people at home? AMC could have mailed it in last quarter and they didn't. Nicely done.

Lastly on our radar tonight, Yelp (YELP). The social media based restaurant review service has an important earnings report tonight. Yelp is one of the 'MOMO' names that's come crashing back to earth this year, along with its high-flying brethren. If Yelp can get sales back on track and sustain user growth, investors will be writing good reviews for Yelp as the the winter freeze thaws, and more people start heading out for meals (and writing more reviews and taking food selfies).
