ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a positive reaction to the release today. They released their February and six months sales numbers which show a 6% increase in revenues and we think there will more confirmation of that positive trend today. The concern is that historically they miss on their estimates and tend to create expectations higher than reality.
Though we are long and see them beating today, we are very cautious that they are setting too high expectations going forward and investor sentiment may sour quickly even with good news.
We are LONG for the event. The Trade Room will have updated news and moves.
