ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory reveals a BEAT on the EPS and revenue and a pop post release. We were a little surprised but seems this is better than expectations even though there may be headwinds going forward. The tech sector is on fire with demand increasing. We are LONG for the event. 

Note: There is room for a pop, but the data suggest an initial drop initially. This event is priced for a small move of only 4.8% – so we are hopeful we can get our nickel.

(Note: This is an AFTER-MARKET-CLOSE release)
