ANALYSIS:

Stockjumpers trajectory analysis reveals a negative market reaction to the release news. They may post a miss on some of the metrics and the stock drops post release. The current price is off 8% from yesterday’s high – so this move may be anticipated as investors go into today’s event. We would be more comfortable having shorted this yesterday as the stock price continues to fall this morning 

We are SHORT on the event.
