Here's an example of why PRE-earnings announcements are so difficult to play.
Here's this morning's headline @ 9:14 am

"Ahead of the Bell: Analysts upbeat on IBM's 4Q
Analysts upbeat on IBM's 4th-quarter as results signal improvement in technology spending"
On Wednesday January 20, 2010, 9:14 am EST
NEW YORK (AP) -- IBM Corp.'s strong fourth-quarter results gave analysts more confidence the company has another year of earnings growth ahead of it.
"An ongoing economic recovery along with higher IT budgets should provide a tailwind for IBM's software and hardware segments," Canaccord Adams analyst Peter Misek told clients in a note Wednesday.
He upgraded the stock to "Buy" from "Hold" and raised his price target for share to $150 from $130.
==================================================================================

Sounds optimistic, right?
So what does IBM do this morning????
Gaps DOWN from yesterday's close of $134.++ to $129.++.

Trading on news is not a good "strategy".

Hello karennma: I actually have no clue how that post came, I don't even post that often and that is certainly not me posting. I sent email to stockfetcher. Something strange for sure.

Well I don't see the error post anymore, and I don't know what happened, maybe the forum software had a glitch. I never posted it to begin with and now I wonder if my account is ok.
