How to Find Big Gains on Positive Earnings Reports

Every single publicly traded stock issues financial results every single quarter. That’s vital information that can lead to big trading momentum. But it’s far too vast an array of data for a small scale investor to keep track of in real time—without the right tools.

Earnings reports are one of many types of news events tracked by our system.

On a single trading day (7/25), the following stocks exhibited strong price appreciation in under 24 hours, the strongest news-based gains recorded by our system for the trading session.

Research suggests that this positive momentum persists for around 90 days, making stocks with strong earnings reports a strong play to ride news events to reliable gains.

Often, the NewsQuantified platform offers profitable strategies based on big ticket news items.

But events as simple as quarterly earnings reports are all that’s required to find solid gains.
