Have the expectations been lowered since CRM missed the last couple qtrs.?
Geeze. Just look at the estimates. They have quietly come down substantially. So yes this is setting up to be gamed. We'll see how it plays out.
So First Call has them at $0.07.
They should be able to beat this number, it seems low.
If they report $0.10, the stock probably does nothing and it will rise/fall on guidance.
Have computers been programmed to sell at lower levels?
The stock will be higher regardless of what is reported. Short continue to wait for the day that will never come.
