UPS, QCOM, IBM, AAPL and others were marginally met their low ball revs. Regardless of how unemployment claim report because futures already rocketed prior the report came out.. bad report translates QE extension , good report means better for stock investments..
Henry Ford's logic: choose whatever direction you want, as long as it's up... can't go wrong with that... GL
and they missed on their own low ball guidance too. They tell analysts what to expect, almost a win-win situation, low ball the estimates, then lower it even more just before reporting...and still miss on revenues...lol...crazy. Alcoa earnings were slashed like 30% 2 weeks before earnings so it can beat it. But money is buying into this game of rigging earnings beat every quarter for years.
