Earnings Whispers' primary trading strategy is to trade ahead of an earnings announcement or after the news and to do so in the direction of the overall market or the stock's sector. We establish our weekly game plan with our Whisper Report using a combination of top-down and bottom-up analysis. Below is our list of past Whisper Reports.

Anecdotal Evidence of a Top
Monday, August 04, 2014

Anecdotal evidence that a top is in place, which is consistent with what we've seen at similar circumstances in the past, but there is still evidence that the current selloff should be bought... but probably not yet.

A Rollover?
Monday, July 14, 2014

Macroeconomic data remains positive and analysts' checks have been generally strong, but what companies have told us ahead of earnings season is much more consistent with an economy that is rolling over - much like in the past during similar circumstances.

History Lesson
Monday, July 07, 2014

Surprise Correlation
Monday, May 12, 2014

Treasuries are telling another story, but Citi's Economic Surprise Index is turning up and that is highly correlated with positive guidance for one sector that is going to see a number of earnings releases over the next two weeks.

Sell Volatility
Monday, May 05, 2014

Bounce
Monday, March 31, 2014

Positive seasonality and expectations of an upside surprise to payrolls while the Nasdaq Composite is the most oversold it has been since 2012 suggest a bounce could have some legs. However, the upcoming earnings season still has downside risks.
