Earnings Reactions and Market Impact
GILD Gilead Sciences Inc


We are watching GILD to help with our general market directional analysis. Yesterday GILD crushed all earnings estimates. One would expect the stock to be up 5% to 10%. There are several more high profile growth companies due to report this week and next, which will give us a feel for the overall market. If enough of them report great numbers maybe the indexes push into new highs and stay there. If they don't then we know where the indexes will go.



In a healthy market, stocks that crush their estimates and guide forward estimates higher should be able to move back above their 50 dmas in a relatively short period of time. The concern is that if a company beats top/bottom-line estimates isn't getting the price action it deserves, then something larger than the stock (i.e. the sector or market) is going on and, in that case, this current correction could be tougher.


Best returns,

Scott O’Neil

GILD still unable to take the 50 DMA.  FB shows raised guidance in Market Smith and 183% eps growth in the recent quarter.  Awesome numbers coming out of a 2nd stage base and yet....
