Why is the apple whisper earnings so high compared to consensus. $11.77 vs $10.35 while google's is $10.91 vs $10.72. Are these whisper earning thrown out there to move the stock one way or the other.
Any sane comments are welcome!
You are correct. That is nuts, and will only further serve to dampen any rise if they beat the $10.35 Most analysts are predicting a miss so I can't see why this number is so high or important. It's baffling to see such divergent targets on Earnings Whisper. Thanks for pointing it out. I don't remember what the whisper number was last time but it was missed as well but AAPL hit the consensus number and we lost over 40 points. I'm afraid this stock is on the down trend, and there are no catalysts in sight.
