  Past Whisper Reports
Some Bullish Signs, but still more Bearish Indicators
Still Buying Ahead

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.

Downside Move for a Buying Opportunity
Monday, March 14, 2011

The S&P 500 broke a tight consolidation range for a downside move that should be a buying opportunity.

Another Selloff Preferred
Monday, March 07, 2011

Another selloff would be preferred, but estimates should begin moving higher and that supports our view that a new 52-week high will be set for the S&P 500 over the next six weeks.

        Featuring: ZUMZ, HIBB, NSM
        View: Summary, Full Report

No Oil Shock Yet
Monday, February 28, 2011

Still seasonal upward pressure on oil and still room to move higher before it is likely to hurt the economy, thus new highs are still expected by next earnings season.

        Featuring: JOYG, FL, UNFI
        View: Summary, Full Report

Off-season Pullback
Tuesday, February 22, 2011

A pullback should be a buying opportunity - ideally with a beginning of the month bounce next week and another selloff that holds above 1,280 for the S&P 500.

        Featuring: LOW, DECK, PCLN

More of the Same
Monday, February 14, 2011

Just more of the same, so no reason to change our strategy yet.

        Featuring: CPO, ITRI, DF
        View: Summary, Full Report

Crack in the Story
Monday, February 07, 2011

The path of least resistance remains to the upside, but the change is that we are now seeing a key fundamental data point roll over.

        Featuring: RL, DIOD, WMGI
        View: Summary, Full Report

Trading a Bounce
Monday, January 31, 2011

Trading for a bounce to start the week, but becoming more cautious in the second-half on the potential misses of lofty expectations.

        Featuring: UPS, ERTS, CSTR
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Currency Buy Signal
Monday, January 24, 2011

The currency market is either telling us a major trend could be changing or it is time to buy stocks after the short sell off.

        Featuring: MSFT, AMZN, PX, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Reasonable Pullback
Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Our target has been hit and sentiment continues to push to extremes. A pullback to 1,200 for the S&P 500 by the end of earnings season is reasonable.

        Featuring: AAPL, GOOG, EBAY, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Change is Coming
Monday, January 10, 2011

Targeting 1,290 for the S&P 500 before a trading strategy change against lopsided sentiment and potential margin pressure.

        Featuring: INTC, JPM, SVU, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Near An End
Monday, January 03, 2011

Still fundamental improvements and technical upside, but the overbought condition and lopsided sentiment indicate the long trade is near an end.

        Featuring: MOS, AA, FDO, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

GDP Upside and Positive
Monday, December 20, 2010

Upside to GDP this week and early tracking for the fourth quarter indicate that January earnings season should be positive. Throw in some seasonality and we get a bullish view going into earnings season.

        Featuring: KMX, , NKE, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Still Upside Room
Monday, December 13, 2010

Still some technical upside to the recent move.

        Featuring: FDX, DFS, BBY, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Positive but Vulnerable
Monday, December 06, 2010

The data shows the economic vulnerability, but the trends are still positive.

        Featuring: COST, LULU, NSM, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Positive Retail Checks
Monday, November 29, 2010

Positive retail checks over the weekend support the fundamental view of modestly improving trends, but stocks are still in a range and the Euro has broken down.

        Featuring: ARO, JAS, GIL, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Another Selloff, then Buying Opportunity
Monday, November 22, 2010

This is a seasonally strong period that is coming with improving leading indicators and off an oversold bounce in the market... but another good selloff is preferred.

        Featuring: HPQ, GES, DE, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Needed Pullback
Monday, November 15, 2010

We've had the pullback we were looking for last week and are now trading long ahead of earnings, but sentiment is a red flag - and of course the U.S. Dollar remains the key.

        Featuring: GPS, PERY, PWRD, AKS
        View: Summary, Full Report

Still Just a Dollar Story
Monday, November 08, 2010

Data is coming in better, but we still see this as more of a U.S. Dollar story than anything else.

        Featuring: CSCO, TYC, DIS, M
        View: Summary, Full Report

Violent U.S. Dollar Move Coming
Monday, November 01, 2010

It is all about the U.S. Dollar this week and it is setting up for a violent move. The extreme sentiment is setting up for a strong U.S. Dollar move, which would be bearish for stocks.

        Featuring: CBS, NUS, SWIR, M
        View: Summary, Full Report

Mixed Data Points
Monday, October 25, 2010

For every data point that confirms one view, there is an equal data point on the other side. Still, the difference between the big money and the small money is getting stretched.

        Featuring: HOT, MSFT, AFL, M
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Reasonable Pullback
Monday, October 18, 2010

We see more downside risk despite positive earnings news in the coming weeks, but for now the trade is just for a reasonable pullback for stocks.

        Featuring: AAPL, BA, AXP, M
        View: Summary, Full Report

Too Optimistic
Monday, October 11, 2010

Companies have tracked above lowered expectations during the quarter, but investor optimism is likely too high.

        Featuring: MAT, HST, INTC, SCHW
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Tightened Range
Monday, October 04, 2010

Little has changed in September despite the market's move with leading fundamental indicators still showing risks.

        Featuring: PEP, MAR, DMND, SCHW
        View: Summary, Full Report

Nominal Gain/Real Decline
Monday, September 27, 2010

Despite what it looked like on the surface, the S&P 500 dropped significantly in real terms as the U.S. Dollar's fall exceeded equities' gains. Despite the fundamentals, this kind of move tends to be the start of a trend. Either way, the setup has gotten easy for the market.

        Featuring: MOS, JBL, FDO, SCHW
        View: Summary, Full Report

A Break Out Pattern, but also a Crash Signal
Monday, September 20, 2010

We've gotten another crash indicator, but for now, a amove above 1,129 to 1,131 for the S&P 500 and a move below 80 for the U.S. Dollar index would suggest more upside in stock prices and a change in our trading strategy around earnings.
