ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory reveals an initial POSITIVE market reaction to the release news based on an EPS beat, but the forward is still weak and this may not be sustaining. This is a very volatile stock with a dim forward outlook – however it may be primed for a revival today, before it tumbles further. We are long-term short – but will be looking for an initial pop on the release news which could be huge.  We will be cautious on the trade allocation as this one could be a scary ride. A 5% stop may not be enough room with the volatility so we moved it to 7-8%.  (Note: This is an after-market release – today)
