Flee, have you the sense to look at the action of the share price today? Doesn't that tell you something? Doesn't it tell you something that it is near a 52-wk high, and will need to have a pristine report? You listen to the talking heads, which is what they are, on CNBC. Just like Najarian recommends INTC highly, while it plummets and is a basically a chipmaker for PCs, and has yet to get its stodgy mgmt. to move their rears on quickly developing mobile to save themselves.
todays action isnt worrisome. after the last earnings there was a small drop followed by a big run over the next 30 days (very similar the earnings before that also). I am expecting a similar move this time 2% pull back followed by a 10% run up. But with all the talking heads getting involved it tends to indicate a changing sentiment in the bigger houses. For instance GS is hoping to sell a lot of covered calls (55's? perhaps) so they are asking people to buy those calls.
