Somewhere it was reported wrong. I got this off CBS marketwatch under Earnings Surprises. I was wondering why this stock got slammed so hard. I'd expected better after I'd read last nights posts this morning before work. I didn't have a chance till noon to research a little more.
Ticker Co Name Time Expected EPS Reported EPS % Surprise
That averages out to -.22 and they came in at -.28. Obviously, the one estimate badly skewed the average. They actually beat the other two estimates by a nice margin. I don't think the sell off had anything to do with "missing" the estimate.
Thanks to you and calypso for the other estimates. Too bad some either inexperienced or overly optimistic analyst had to blow that call.
As for the sell off what would you attribute it to?
I must admit that I've not kept up with this stock too closely over last couple months. But, at a glance the earnings report looked good up and down. - Revenue up - Earnings up - Cash up - Per tower earnings up
I thought the report looked great. I've followed SBAC since July. IMHO, this is one of the most manipulated stocks I've seen. The last runup ended with an 8700 share purchase at 13 3/4 at eod. The stock immdiately turned around and went back to the 9's. It just cannot seem to sustain any momentum. Lots of trading. The future, however, looks very bright, again IMHO
Sorry calypso, don't know the analyst who said -.03, but there seems to be a similar odd-ball high estimate for the next Q and the year as well. Actually, it fits in well with my conspiracy mentality ;-)
