Enhanced Earnings Reactions

By -

Today we released an improvement to the Earnings Reaction Page which was prompted by the request from a Slope of Hope subscriber. I always appreciate your ideas and suggestions, since, by definition, you are the folks I’m trying to please, so I want to make the site as much to your liking as possible.

Whereas the page used to show the net percentage change at the end of the day following earnings, now it shows the entire day’s price bar for the day after earnings. This will help give you a more complete sense as to what the reaction was to the earnings, since, by definition, the bar shows you the open, high, low, and close for the day, which makes for a more thorough picture instead of just the net change at day’s end. Here’s a recap of the feature for those unfamiliar with it:

The Earnings Reaction Graph is an exclusive feature for Platinum members (to learn about Slope memberships, click here). This page presents to you all the historical reactions from company earnings announcements.

Once you are at the page, all you have to do is enter a ticker symbol and click Go (or press the Return key). By default, the stock ticker AMZN is entered for you.
