Ok does ANYONE know if Z has to report before the CC if they know they will CRUSH OR HAVE ALREADY crushed the numbers? Wasn't sure if legally he had to inform the public on the numbers and estimates or if he can wait until the CC. Waiting til the CC would be soooo sweet to me. You could have so much fun with the call in questions from the analysts. Oh I'm sorry mr. pachter....I think we made a LITTLE more than you had projected!! And when I say little I mean you may have been off by 10M copies...but hey you did a great job!! Also, might want to increase your number for the next Q. Might sell more than a million copies. Or heck even have Lanie go gangsta and use the N word. Can't wait to hear it!! I don't think I can think of a time the street is going to be soooo far off?
No, he has no legal obligation to pre-announce good or bad earnings. He should keep his mouth shut, as always, until earnings so that we get the most pop. Problem with Z is that he appears to care the least about us shareholders and more about his employees and "friends". He'll give them plenty of time to buy in before reporting any good news.
