ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a drop in price post release. It may be about same-store sales metrics as we see a beat on the EPS. Also expectations are lowered this quarter so a beat on earnings is not so far-fetched, but our analysis suggests that’s not enough to push the stock up. Our bias going into this was long, but we reversed it after running the study.
We are SHORT for the event but think it be mixed on the sentiment and may snap back after an initial drop on the release.
(Note: This is an after-market release – today)
TARGET ‘JUMP ZONE’ POTENTIAL: 6%
CONFIDENCE RANKING: 8
