that is a ridiculous assumption. One stocks like AMZN and NFLX price in absolute perfection. They want a spotless earnings announcement, to validate their ridiculous runs. Apple, on the other hand, has done the opposite. It has priced in pure negativity. I can see Apple meeting, not even beating estimates tomorrow and trading $10 higher. You are looking at complete opposite approaches
All the big boys will wait to buy or sell after they report after hours.
All retail investors will be at their mercy one way or another since we can't buy after hours.
Myself, I'll just hang in there for the pain or what I feel will be a push to buy more shares by the big boys.
I have my fingers crossed.
