written by reader Whiper Number and Earnings Whispers Services

By denningsnorcal, May 20, 2015

I’m curious to know if anyone has subscribed to either of these 2 services and if so what our your opinions. I was thinking about signing up for a free 2 week trial to Earnings Whispers. I like what I see from both services. I’m an options trader and I see potential to make nice profits on both positive or negative earnings reactions if timed correctly. These services tout successful track records dating back several years. As an example both Urban Outfitters and Lowes missed earnings expectations and both have dropped like a boulder in a shallow pond. These both would have been great trades.

Hi David,
I hope my comment doesn’t appear twice. Not sure if I posted my 1st reply due to an interruption. Anyway, I would pursue EW for a FREE trial to see what you think. I subscribed to them for about a year in 2012-13 but quit due to too many incorrect calls. One thing I liked was the historical data provided on their selected stocks. In percentage form from the past several years, EW gives a range of anticipated gains or losses for upcoming earnings. They complement this with what appears to be random analyst comments, anyone willing to put their opinion forward. Since it’s proprietary, of course, I wasn’t able to discern other variables included or omitted from their calculations and the weight assigned to each. One quarter I made several long purchases that lost money. In analyzing why, the common denominator appeared to be weak forward guidance. I emailed EW’s founder/ director and asked for a partial refund for the rest of the quarter. It was denied. He told me that EW is dedicated to testing the accuracy of their strategy and that I had neglected to buy one or two stocks that had made stellar gains. If I were you during your free trial, you may want to 1. Anticipate the role of weak guidance on any stock’s purchase;
2. Consider the value and accuracy of analysts’ comments;
3. Determine whether EW’s overall stats are based on buying all stocks; and
4. Contact the founder/ director with specific questions and see if they are answered to your satisfaction.
All the Best!

Take the free trial, but make sure you cancel before being billed.
