That's Yahoo's earnings calendar link, with March 8 selected. 98 firms are listed, 14 of them foreign issue, so obviously they reported premkt US Eastern Time. Twenty five firms didn't provide a time. For those that did provide a time, 30 were after the bell, and 29 were before market open. Got that? Pretty much the same number of firms reported before and after the bell, for those that supplied a time, which accounts for 82% of the domestic issues.
Now, as to whether reporting before or after is a predictor of stock performance, it's easy to dump all those happy little tickers into the Yahoo stock machine and find out how they've done. The simple answer is that most of them have done terribly! By my count, for those that reported pre-mkt, 71% aren't so pretty now, and the figure is 88% for after the bell stocks. Mind you this is looking only at March 8. Here's the links:
That remark is such garbage! If the earnings are good or bad or in-line what is the differences? The market will take care of the stock price.
Now, let�s think about this � bad earning as you state � wow let�s give the market all day to slam the stock � Yea that�s what they want - let�s tell the world after the market closes and let all of the after hours traders line up and slam the stock the next morning and create panic � Yea that�s what they want.
Or maybe they understand it�s not in there control and again the market will take care of it�s self.
Move on and use your emotional �Ad Baculum� on your friends.
No need to tell me I suck or I am wonderful � don�t care, nor will I respond.
