Latest financial news from Briefing : with the Fed decision in the rearview mirror and the policy statement having a less hawkish tone than initially feared wednesday, the market’s focus returned to earnings thursday; and, not surprisingly, they continued to top Wall Street estimates …

staying in the energy patch, oil prices slipping back below $61/bbl was just one of the many factors boding well for the improved spending patterns and earnings prospects that helped Consumer Discretionary turn in the day’s best performance …

ISRG beats by $0.04, beats on revs Reports Q3 (Sep) earnings of $0.45 per share, $0.04 better than the Reuters Estimates consensus of $0.41; revenues rose 57.3% year/year to $95.8 mln vs the $87.6 mln consensus … higher revenue was driven by increased da Vinci Surgical System sales and continued growth in recurring revenue … shares gain $1.09 to $113.25 in after-hours trading …

MDRX reports Q3 results in-line with earnings of $0.19 per share, in line with the Reuters Estimates consensus of $0.19; revenues rose 103.0% year/year to $62.2 mln vs the $61.5 mln consensus … shares fell $1.29 to $23.60 in after-hours trading …

AKAM reported Q3 (Sep) “normalized” earnings of $0.24 per share, $0.02 better than the Reuters Estimates consensus of $0.22. Revenues rose 47.3% year/year to $111.5 mln vs. the $108.8 mln consensus … for Q4, co expects to earn $0.26 a share (consensus $0.25) on revenues of $118-120 mln (consensus $118 mln) … shares fell $2.13 to $47.70 in after-hours trading … this is what i called punishment for a drop in net-profit (95% vs a year ago) …

Guess i’m not making much money today … maybe a scenario such as OMX like this will happen again …

I have been folloing AKAM and ISRG lately too. Unfortunately, price of AKAM and ISRG dropped sharply to go along with the rest of market even though they provided above average earnings.

yes plin, AKAM & ISRG used to make me lots of money … but there’re times when the market-makers decided to go against small players like us … which i called blind-factor …

sometime when the big-players chose to play the role of a short-sellers, they’ll take every minor opportunity to punish the stock …

that’s why i always pick fundamental-sound company as sooner or later, the price will reflects it’s fair value (just to pick another piece of advice from warren buffett, haha) …

hence if you’re playing option game, make sure you have time value to your advantage …

just my humble opinion …

cheers
