  Past Whisper Reports
Crowded Trades
Double-dip Confirmation?

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.

Fundamentals Should Prevail
Monday, August 16, 2010

An oversold stock market could provide a bounce, but in the end the weak fundamental data should prevail.

Our Target Week
Monday, August 09, 2010

This is the week we've been targeting for the end of the rally off the recent lows so now we get to see if we are right. Treasuries and the fundamentals support our view, but we need a trend line break to confirm.

Divergences Everywhere
Monday, August 02, 2010

There is mixed short-term technical data and bearish fundamental data, but the short-term trend is holding so a move higher through earnings season still seems reasonable.

Yen/Treasury Divergence
Monday, July 26, 2010

The S&P 500 reached our target last week and now we wait for confirmation of the next move. If the market moves higher, it will likely need to come with a pullback in Treasuries and against the current crowded trade in the market - being long the Japanese Yen. Regardless of the short-term move, most evidence suggests new lows will be seen before new highs.

Setup for a Potential One-week Move
Monday, July 19, 2010

We are remaining net short as the fundamentals continue to point to lower prices, but we are trading a long setup seen last quarter with continued upside earnings surprises expected.

        Featuring: BPI, AAPL, UPS, XLNX, MSFT

Earnings won't be as bad as feared... yet
Monday, July 12, 2010

Investors appear to have gotten too pessimistic relative to the earnings and guidance that will likely be announced in the weeks ahead, and that generally creates a rally through earnings season. However, overall data suggests lower prices are still ahead.

        Featuring: CSX, INTC, GOOG, AA, MSFT

Crowded Treasury Short
Monday, June 28, 2010

The S&P 500 is setting up for a potential head and shoulders top as fundamentals weaken, but perhaps the key is U.S. Treasuries as the fundamentals move against a crowded trade.

        Featuring: MU, SCHN, GIS, AA, MSFT

FOMC Reversal
Monday, June 21, 2010

When there is pessimism in the market, stocks tend to rally going into the FOMC announcement, but when fundamentals are deteriorating, statistics show the move reverses following the announcement and fundamental and technical data are confirming the setup.

Deflation is the Risk
Monday, June 14, 2010

A short squeeze in the Euro could help lift U.S. equities, but it should be confirmed this week that deflation is the main risk to the market... and the economy.

Surprising Lack of Fear
Monday, June 07, 2010

Despite the overall selling recently, there appears to be a lack of fear as many investors have become more bullish - buying the dip, shorting the Yen, and buying calls.

Did the Recession just Start?
Tuesday, June 01, 2010

It hasn't shown up in the data yet, but the technical data is consistent with a cycle peak within a secular bear market.

No Panic Yet
Monday, May 24, 2010

History says that panic selling even when growth is showing should be bought, but mixed data suggests there isn't panic yet.

Euro Bounce
Monday, May 17, 2010

Evidence suggests it is time to trade for a Euro bounce, and that should help Technology as fear has crept into the Tech investor.

Fade the Gap
Monday, May 10, 2010

While the money supply contraction suggests last week's selloff is likely to occur again, the panic selling has bullish implications after fading the gap higher bounce - with key support resistance points defined.

Divergences
Monday, May 03, 2010

Still Crowded
Monday, April 26, 2010

Selling not for right reasons... yet
Monday, April 19, 2010

Expecting a bounce to start the week with an overwhelming number of likely earnings beats, but overall risk is to the downside as leading indicators show second-half estimates are too high and investors are too optimistic.

Short Inflation
Monday, April 12, 2010

It should be near the time to short the inflation trade.

More Evidence
Monday, April 05, 2010

There is more evidence of downside risk despite a very solid earnings season expected.

Strong Earnings, but Potential Top

We are coming into a period of strong earnings news and positive economic data, but the leading indicators suggest a top and the technicals say sell.

A Crowded Trade
Monday, March 22, 2010

The crowded trade is now being long while the leading indicators are turning over and some are pointing to a contraction. However, a short-term bounce should be expected.

Line in the Sand
Monday, March 15, 2010

We continue to see building support for shorting the market, but 1,150 is the new line in the sand.

        Featuring: NKE, FDX, GES, MOS, SYNA
        View: Summary, Full Report

Pushing Through
Monday, March 08, 2010

The technicals indicate a move through 1,150 is likely for the S&P 500 but the fundamentals indicate slowing growth and downward earnings revisions ahead.

Support/Resistance
Monday, March 01, 2010

Data continues to point to a weakening economy ahead, but 1,105 is our support/resistance line for trading the overall stock market.

        View: Summary, Full Report

Increasingly Bearish
Monday, February 22, 2010

We are becoming increasingly bearish, but prices are moving higher. Therefore, at this point, we need the S&P 500 to move below 1,105 before we can be comfortable shorting the market.
