The earnings information proven to significantly outperform the overall market

Earnings Whisper ® numbers are the most accurate

Since 1998, Earnings Whispers has published 100,579 Earnings Whisper numbers and, 71.6% of the time, the Earnings Whisper number was the most accurate published expectation by gathering the true expectations of 11,516 professional analysts – people who actually get paid to tell hedge funds, portfolio managers, and broker clients their projections.

At the same time, weve gathered 7,565,923 price and earnings expectations from 711,520 individual investors to identify when, and what stocks, investors are the most bullish and bearish going into the companies earnings releases.

By combining the expectations of professional analysts, the sentiment of individual investors, and the actual results reported by the company, we can reliably indentify exactly where a stock lies in the Earnings Expectation Life Cycle

By identifying where a stock is in the Earnings Expectation Life Cycle, we can then identify which stocks are more likely to drift higher (or lower) throughout the quarter following the companys earnings release – with the A+ stocks outperforming the overall market by 267%

Each week we assess the current environment by first taking top-down view of the market from the perspective of macro economists and market technicians, then we take a look at the top companies scheduled to report earnings – from the perspective of the bottom-up analysts.
