Nah, I don't think the before market open vs after close release is indicative of good or bad news. Rather, I see the early week (Tuesday) earnings release as a positive. Now if it was Friday after market close I would be a little worried, but Tues morning seems fine with me. Regardless of earnings miss or beat, most everyone is waiting on HRB news. If Darden wants to save face hopefully he'll give the analyst a number or at least verify bids are received, bidding is closed, a conceptual agreement is reached, and the details are being drafted with a close date slated for late Nov. We'll know in 14 days.. I'm optimistic. If we see the share price start moving up in the next week we'll know something good is brewing.
