ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a a a small pop post release. We think they will beat – but the market reaction is not all that enthusiastic. The key will be guidance. We were going to place a hold on this trade – just because there is not a lot of conviction, but we are planning to buy it, just with low expectations of profit.
We are LONG for the event. Trade Room will have updated news and moves.
