ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory reveals a meet  or or a slight beat on EPS and revenue metrics but perhaps a softer forward and we the stock dropping even though we do expect it to snap back. Last quarter they beat by .24 cents and we don’t see that happening today. The key to today’s event is in the forward guidance and that’s where we will be looking. 

 We are (overall) SHORT for the event – but may play it safe with a smaller trade allocation and then jump in deeper once we see the numbers. 

(Note: This is an AFTER-market release today
