ANALYSIS: StockJumpers trajectory analysis reveals a potential miss, and weaker than expected guidance so market reaction is a down move post release. We think the numbers will be mixed, with some metrics being better than analysts forecast and some less so. The main theme here is “lackluster” and that’s why we are calling this one a short play.
We are overall SHORT for the event.
(Note: This is an after-market release – today)
TARGET ‘JUMP ZONE’ POTENTIAL: 8-10%
CONFIDENCE RANKING: 8
