ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a beat on EPS and revenue but it may not be enough to make the stock pop much further. Like a lot of these trades the stock price is overbought and unless the results are stellar there is more of a possibility of a “sell on the news” outcome. We think they will show good numbers today – but will it be enough. We are overall long but will hold for any initial short downturn before we enter our position. (We would feel better about it if it were trading at 38 vs 41)

We are LONG for today’s event but don’t see a huge move up initially and perhaps an initial drop to sideways before.  Trade Room will have updated news and moves.

(Note: This is an after-market release – today)
