It’s that time of year again…
No, not summertime. Time for earnings.
Four times a year, every publicly traded company in the U.S. gears up for its quarterly earnings report.
This is a time for the company to lift the veil on its operations and shine some light on how things went over the previous quarter.
In short, it’s the four most important times of the year for practically any company.
This time period also sees the sharpest — and potentially most rewarding — moves in any particular stock.
There’s just one caveat: It’s impossible to know about these moves beforehand to profit on them.
But I’ve discovered another way to profit from earnings season that’s extremely lucrative — the drift.
Catch My Drift
I know it can be enticing to try to front-run earnings announcements. Stocks tend to pop 5% or more on any sort of beat, or fall 5% on a miss. But the company also holds a conference call in which it can alter these moves by the words it chooses to use.
This combines to make predicting earnings an impossible task.
And now that I have discovered a drift associated with earnings, I’m not interested in taking that gamble prior to earnings being announced.
That’s because a drift can be just as powerful, if not more powerful, than the actual earnings announcement itself. It just occurs over a slightly longer time period than one day.
The trick, however, is identifying these drifts and knowing how to take advantage of them — and that’s exactly what we have discovered.
By identifying these drift patterns, we have quietly seen amazing success over nearly a year: quick high-single-digit gains and double-digit gains throughout every quarter.
And by using a “profit accelerator,” we were able to lock in gains as high as 300%!
The Winning 76
So what exactly is this drift, and how are we having so much success with it?
For starters, the drift is not the same for every stock. I studied earnings events going back to 2006 for every company in the S&P 500, and what I discovered was there wasn’t a one-drift-fits-all scenario.
The drift for Apple is different than the drift for TripAdvisor, and each of those drifts are different than that of Tesla, and so on.
As you can imagine, this was kind of tricky to parse through when that was the circumstance. It took a lot of man-hours, costly data feeds and computer programming tools to crunch the data and reveal what I was looking for — consistent drift patterns.
The drift patterns I wanted to find were going to be consistent moves in the stock once certain parameters were hit with regards to its earnings report — so the following weeks or months after an earnings report of any specific company.
And what I found was a list of 76 stocks, which I call the Winning 76. These stocks showed consistent drift patterns that we have made money hand over fist on during the past eight months.
Now, I wouldn’t tell you all this just to brag. I’m bringing it up for a reason. In just a few days, we are going to go live with the service — allowing investors like you to access the profit-making research.
There’s just one catch: It’s going to sell out fast.
To be one of the first to have the opportunity to see this research, you need to be on this list by midnight EDT tonight, June 19.
Once you’re signed up, just join us on Thursday to see all the details.
