ANALYSIS:

StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a negative overall market reaction to the news release. They are trading at near annual lows and we were looking for a beat and news that would propel the stock higher, but we are not seeing it. There was some data about a miss on some of the metrics (perhaps same store sales) but its ambiguous. We are biased short on this one

We are SHORT on the event

___________________
TRADE PLAN:

ENTRY:  SELL
STOP LOSS:  5%
TAKE PROFIT: 10%
___________________

UPDATE:  We remain biased short – even though it looks oversold and trading at annual lows. 

POST RELEASE ACTION:  They beat on the main metrics, but the key for the main move in the am will be in the guidance. We revised our take profit from break-even to 6% and will revisit in the AM.
