    Earnings

    Think earnings announcement is tomorrow...stock opened down today...as it should have (in my view only)...but recovered the loss already...does someone suspect that the earnings will be better than the warning projections...if so, then they may get hammered for misleading...just cannot figure out the stock price movement recently...so, will stay with my short calls...probably until after x-date or until just before 2/21 (expiration). Hard to know how to trade it at this time...

    • I'm with you Guru. Been out for a more than a year trying to figure this out. Thing I'll seek the charts going forward and bit off a little during this forthcoming dip. GL.

    • Once again, RD is too unpredictable. Wow, GLTA, all bets are off. Thanks.

    • This is a predicament. If RD does not drop (some) tomorrow, then we should trade our tea leaves in for stock.

      • It sure is unpredictable, with bad earnings it is till holding better than other majors. RD had break out above the 2 year trend line and held it despite the bad earnings. RD may go a little bit higher from here because it looks like the SP500 is bouncing up to 1810-1823 to form a right shoulder with a neck line at 1770. Very interesting if it go down to break the neck line, then the down target is 1690 ( double the range size of the head & shoulder formation). Just guessing on what will happen.

        I have a feeling that RD will piggy back on SPX rally short term.

      • It will take more leaves to buy a share today, how many shares did you want? RDS missed big XOM a little, soo RDS up & XOM down, go figure! We've been misled, now who do we blame?
        RDS is off board for a trading stock now it appears. Best to all.

    • I'm thinking (like you Guru) that no matter what's in the announcement tomorrow the price should not go up. If the earnings are better than what was in the new CEO's pre announcement warning the price should be penalized for misleading shareholders. If the announcement is as bad as previously stated the price shouldn't profit (maybe flat line), and if the announcement is worse than stated in the warning the stock price should be hit. I'm staying in the hurry up and wait mode (100% Thrift in 401k). JMHO & GLTA. But, then again, logic doesn't always prevail, does it?
