ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a less than stellar report even though expectations are for a strong beat. We think their numbers will be ” in-line ” but with an overall negative market reaction even with lowered expectations. There may be some management issues announced that market sentiment is not comfortable with. We may see more of a see-saw response post release with the bulls and bears trying to decide which way to go vs an immediate pop or drop.

We are overall SHORT for this event but may wait for the news

(Note: This is an After Market Close (AMC) release – today)
