Coming up on the last hour of trading we'll know if the news is good tomorrow. I also believe that someone (or many someones) know the flow results and are throwing in their bets (I mean investments). The higher the kitty the more likelyhood the news will benefit the longs. It's flying as I type this.
I don't think they would go to the conference to report that project we have been waiting for has come in less than expected. I think they would have reported this before and tried to sugar it up or waited until after the conference. Who would go to a conference with industry peers to say the biggest project in company history had less than stellar results?
