Jeffries and next Cramer are mainstays days ahead of CRM's report. IBD used to post it's a buy if it gets above a certain point, but more recently IBD appears to have abandoned CRM and gone after stocks that have actually gone up recently. However, if SPX resistance isn't overcome, which appears to be the case, IBD might become more and more cautious about the market in general. Don't expect such sources to get ahead of anything, at least not for the public.
Jefferies pulled out a bunch of template buzzables, updated the date, and puked it out for all to see. Earned his check for the month, published that INTENSIVE analysis. And then he rolled over on his belly on the beach.
Jeffries does this "like clockwork" ahead of each CRM report. I'd be concerned if they weren't bullish today. Actually, there are even holes in their "bullishness" to those who have read other comments.
