Earnings Trades Recap

Earnings Trades Recap

Almost all of the exciting stocks have finished their earnings cycle for Q1. Overall, the theme for this season was “disappointment”. Whether it had to do with bad weather impact on East coast business, strong US dollar or any other reason, most of the stocks that typically perform well, did not.


Even AAPL whose earnings were stellar, was beaten down after the report. Of course, the stock was pumped up going into the report itself, so some of the results were already priced in.
