Marc,

Just so glad you like the information in this thread. Perhaps more importantly, it is hoped that it eventually adds profits to your trading account.

One thing taught allot without proper context being always included is the probability of gaps filling. Some quote statistics that may apply to index gaps as if they apply to all gaps. Of the various moves in these earnings stocks trades, the gap and go is my favorite. But some of us that consistently trade these setups have a saying that "we trade what we see". We use bar-by-bar analysis, and let the stocks tell us how to play them. For first pull back players, suggested is looking for the pull back (entry) on the one or two minute chart. On some gap and go stocks, I personally use a subjective Stop Loss (SL) to get a somewhat controlled entry. For example for stocks up to $70 (or so), I'll enter as they quickly move up (or down) with a $0.25 SL. Although it rarely happens, two SLs on the same stock using this technique are considered OK. However, it is suggested that each individual create their own trading rules for these plays - there is more than enough profit potential to make it worth one's time to do so, IMHO.

Please see the attachment that contains the 60 stocks that release their earnings numbers (and forecast) next week, and also met Group criteria.

Good luck at making some decent profits with these plays.

Regards,

Jim B.

Updated and supplemental earnings information for next week.

Although most of them are classified as SUBs (only ABMD meets Group criteria), the following stocks are expected to issue notable earnings results next week:

5/16/11 – KH, PLAB

5/18/11 – ABMD (meets Group criteria)

5/19/11 – NDSN, TTC

5/20/11 – CIS, DCI

SUB earnings stocks have made significant contributions to my trading account over the years. Of course, these types of stocks are not desirable for all traders. For those not experienced with trading these types of stocks, consideration might be given to paper trading them for practice, or trading small share size.

I personally usually use the same share size (or more for the cheaper stocks). So I normally trade a minimum of 1,000 shares. An early entry near market open requires the first 5 minute candle to have significantly higher volume that the first 5 minute candle of the previous trading day. But please develop your own rules if electing to trade these low price and/or thinly traded stocks.

Hope this addendum to the normal earning map/profile is of interest to at least some traders.

Regards,

Jim B.

Since I hardly post results any more, the historical usefulness of this thread might be suffering. The two earnings stocks for today are posted mainly for historical purposes to show that the plays were pretty easy, yielded very decent profits, and are likely well within the trading capabilities of most forum members.

So even at the end of the quarter when earnings announcements are few, there are still good profits to be made most every day. And with the addition of pre market gap stocks to the earnings list, profits are even much better - some of these gap stocks are shown in the watch list.

If you are trading the earnings map, please feel free to post your results, as your time permits.

Regards,

Jim B.

In an attempt to provide a truly representative sample of earnings stocks typical price action, all (of the few) earnings stocks for today have five minute charts attached. Of course, earnings stocks for today include those that reported yesterday After Market Close (AMC), and this morning Before Market Open (BMO), plus there is one stock for which its report was Time Not Specified(TNS).

If new to these trades, determine which of the types of price action best fits your trading style, and only trade those stocks.

If you are fairly new to these often fast moving trades, or are experiencing less profits than you expected, it is suggested that post 6624, and related post in the thread (http://www.visualtrader.com/forum/thread-view.asp?threadid=1009&posts=20 ) be reviewed.

One quote from the referenced post is: "The use of the BB Bubble state appears to be a good tool to aid traders new to trading gap stocks. For these new traders, it is recommended that first profits (if scaling out) not be taken until the opposing band turns as described. Some excellent pro traders recommend taking some profits after a fixed amount is available. My experience has indicated this is often too early, especially for the big movers. Delaying until the band turns can mean additional dollars in safe profit."

Regards,

Jim B.

Please see the attached profile/map. The map for next week contains forty-four earnings stocks that met either Group or Selected SUB criteria (20-24).

As many of you know, earnings season for this quarter kicks off Monday after market close when AA (Alcoa Inc) releases its earnings numbers. So these maps will be getting bigger pretty quick. For traders new to these trades, when the maps get bigger it is recommended that focus be on just a few stocks at market open to prevent being overwhelmed. This, and related threads, have included some suggestions that might help traders new to these trades.

Also, if other forum members have more recently started successfully trading these setups, please share what has helped you, and what has not. Helping each other is one of the key benefits of this forum.

Good luck with these trades.

Regards,

Jim B.

Hope the new earnings map/profile uploads.

Only stocks that met Group criteria were included because that provided a number that seemed sufficient - 431

Good luck with theses trades.

Edit - this is the error that is displayed after uploading fails - 500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Uploads have been attempted with different computers, different ISPs, and etc. So apparently it is a Nirvana Server problem. But I really do not know much about such things. Any assistance from Nirvana tech support will be appreciated.

Regards,

Jim B.

Test of upload fix.

Below is edit addition:

Just FYI – some chat extracts from this morning:
Note that market open is at 0830 CDT – gap stocks identified about twenty-five minutes prior to market open.
[8:04:04 AM] : Gap stks – AGNC BHI ETFC F HCA NFLX NWS NWSA QGEN RIMM SLAB SNY SOLR STD TSM
[8:05:02 AM] : All but five gap stocks are releasing earnings this week.

[8:38:39 AM] : AGNC stalling a little49.72
[8:38:55 AM] : 50 decade # will be intere4sting
[8:40:04 AM] : ah - AGCO -nice to post correct symbols
[8:40:09 AM] : sorry
[8:40:27 AM] : Well, they both start with "A"
[8:41:24 AM] : BHI toppy near gap fill
[8:42:03 AM] : But probability says it will go higher after a stall or pull back. BUT we trade what we see 79.13 now

The AGCO trade was entered within the first five minutes after market open, please see attached chart. In addition to gap stocks, big movers are identified shortly after market open.

Another just FYI - VT 7 is mainly used for trading, and VT 8 for testing. But it is about time to trade with the superior VT 8.

Currently stocks often trade well starting about a week before their actual earnings release date. But just developing the list for the following week after market close on Friday has historically given excellent trades for the following week. (Some older term traders might recall how some excellent swing plays occurred about thirty days before the release date based on whisper numbers. But that was before whisper numbers got a hard look by regulators – have not checked lately how these old types of trades are working now. If anyone knows, please post what you know)

Hope some others get to profit from the provided information.

Regards,

Jim B.

Only the 324 stocks that met Group criteria were included in the attached map/profile for next week because that should provide a sufficient number of trades.

Good luck with theses trades.

The attached earnings map/profile for next week contains 99 stocks that met Group standards.

This past week was kind to traders using the earnings map in that superior profits were provided. And for those just day trading it, the overnight risk was eliminated that caused some traders/investors fairly large losses.

If anyone feels less than fully proficient at these types of day trades, as you may have already seen, some good related information is included in post http://www.visualtrader.com/visualtrader/forum/thread-view.asp?threadid=1151&posts=4 . But it is cautioned that the videos at the posted link are only temporarily available. But also note that the videos may be downloaded for later (or multiple) viewing.

Best of luck in your trading.

Regards,

Jim B.

Be interesting how these perform this week with all that's going on..

What definitions do you use to meet group criteria? Not sure I ever asked.. I'll have to read through your old posts to check..

Marc,

Group criteria are price of $10, or more, and daily average volume of 400,000 shares/day, or more.

And yes these stocks are playing well this week as you likely (hopefully) have already seen.

Yesterday and today (Monday & Tuesday) have been great days to be a day trader using just about any list. We have focused on our standard list and its usual daily premarket adds of selected gap stocks.

Regards,

Jim B.

It appears that interest in the early morning trades has waned based on the number of downloads, and little feedback. So new earnings maps, and related posts, are being discontinued.

For historical completeness so that in the future new forum members might hopefully further benefit from this thread, a number of attachments are provided. One is a line chart showing the recent high volatility. Others are examples of how earnings stocks performed in this market condition – in a word, GREAT! The five day 15 minute micro charts give a big picture of performance. Two detailed samples are provided in the form of two minute charts, and include Group chat extracts that hopefully give an idea of how these relatively easy plays progressed. One, IL, gave no pre market indication of its forthcoming big price move. The other, SODA, gave a pre market indication of its forthcoming big move more than a half an hour before market open.

Hope that this information proves of interest and more importantly, of use, to at least some forum members, current and future.

Good luck in your continuing trades.

Regards,

Jim B.
