Don’t Bank on it

July 18th, 2022

18 July 2022 Don’t Bank on It Wells Fargo (WFC) posted earnings on Friday morning that were underwhelming. Profits declined 48% from a year earlier, while revenue and earnings both fell short of expectations. Yet the stock soared 8% before closing 6.2% higher. Why the jump on seemingly bad news? It’s anyone’s guess, though it’s […]

Dressing Down this Stock 

July 11th, 2022

Levi Strauss (LEVI) was one of the only well-known names that reported earnings this week ahead of the banks kicking off the season next week.

The company cited a shift […]

Just Do It … or Not

July 5th, 2022

Nike (NKE) reported earnings on Monday that beat on the top and bottom lines. But many were not impressed, citing disappointing gross margin guidance, among other metrics.

No Garden Party

June 27th, 2022

Darden Restaurants (DRI) reported earnings this week that beat on both revenue and profits.

Analysts weighed in with a plateful of target […]

Channel This

June 20th, 2022

A Me(h)T Trade

November 10th, 2021

MetLife (MET) won’t get anyone’s juices flowing. It’s frankly a rather boring insurance and financial services company that’s been around for 158 years. But who cares … if we can make money on a trade, right? MET reported earnings last week that beat estimates on the top and bottom lines. Hardly anyone noticed. Analysts were […]
