You are viewing the most recent Whisper Reports

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.
