So I talked to my friend who works at JP Morgan and he says that when a company "Grossly" exceeds their earnings that Wall Street will see this as management not openly communicating with the analysts. In addition, "grossly" exceeding can be seen as the leadership not being prepared for the growth they are achieving.
He mentioned that Wall Street investors like for leadership to communicate well with analysts and to be right in line with analysts expectations.
He said he has seen this before with many small caps. With huge growth they run into problems with customer service and end up losing market share in the future. Too fast of growth can be a negative.
Your "friend" obviously knows nothing about ELLI and has not listened to management's conference calls for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Qtrs. Management has done a good job of communicating how the company's SAS business model is well designed to produce rapid and sustained growth. If, in fact, WS investors are selling ELLI today because they have ignored or chosen not to believe what management has repeatedly told the investing public, then this is an opportunity to buy more shares at a bargain price. Sooner or later the market will reward consistent superior performance.
