I sold NEW before earnings, expecting their guidance to be bad. I was right but the stock went UP 10% the next day anyway.Bought AAPL before earnings expecting great guidance. Oops - got that one completely wrong.I sold ERTS before earnings, expecting they'd miss previously lowered earnings estimates and bad next year guidance. I was right. ERTS went UP the next day despite this.I *bought* NBR before earnings, expecting them (and guidance) to be stellar. I was right...you know the rest.All my theses (except AAPL) were right and still I was wrong on every trade in terms of what the stock price did. Absolutely unbelievable. I need a stiff drink but it's only 11am here...
Try LUFK. It will go up after earnings report next Thurs. Sure thing.

Yep - we're not paranoid. The world IS out to get us.
I feel the same way. Hedge funds control everything.
I feel your pain brothers. I own APC and NBR. They are going down for know freakin reason. This game gets old after awhile, but patience is a virtue, this is just a little speed bump. Although I am batting .333%, I did get NSC right.
strumu got that right go figure fricking manipulated market,,,,huge earnings and this kind of a selloff!fricking joke!
