    Is fio a buy before earnings?

    Checked insiders buying and selling, a lot of insider selling and this company's earnings record not impressive. Question is will I be better buying before results tom, or regret it?

    • There have been no open market sales other than automatic sales, which were set up long before anyone knew about tomorrow's earnings report. So they are meaningless as far as tomorrow is concerned.

    • It's always a gamble, fish! No one really knows.

      I would say if buy 30-40% of your position before earnings if you want to take the risk. Or just wait until after earnings in after hours to pick some. Volatility can kill you after hours though as you try to get in on a good price or get out before everyone does the same. I'm betting on good earnings though but I will still be reducing my position by two thirds before close to to guard against any decline.

    • It is definitely a risky bet. Can easily go up or down $3 but which way is any bodies guess. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Good luck if you decide to go for it because I am hoping it goes up tomorrow.

    • Well Fio has beat 3 of the last 4 quarters and analysts have been slashing their estimates for a while now. A couple months ago, they expected a profit in this quarter. I find it hard to believe that they will miss this newly lowered guidance. That being said, I still don't know if the stock will go up even if they beat unless Fio says they are actively pursuing takeover offers.

    • "Company's earning record not impressive." Really? I must be following a different stock. FIO is a dumpster fire today.

      If you buy the stock before the announcement, buy puts for downside protection. Otherwise, keep your money in your pocket. You'll be glad you did, in most probability.

      Sentiment: Hold
