Can Earnings Be Predicted?

Today, I'm going analyze three stocks that are releasing their earnings after the close today. I'm going to see if I can determine where the stock is headed after earnings.

I'll be using the Trade Triangle technology to help me analyze the direction of the market in a very methodical way, all before the companies report their earnings.

Here is what the experts are estimating for earnings for each of the three companies. Autodesk Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK) estimated to earn .08 cents a share. The Fresh Market Inc. (NASDAQ:TFM) estimated to earn .22 cents a share and The Gap Inc. (NYSE:GPS) estimated to earn .63 cents a share. The earnings are a consensus view of many analysts that track these stocks.

This Grocery Stock Could Be A Steal At This Price

Daniel Cross - Contributor - Equities

It's been a wild ride for Wall Street this past week as the broader indexes collapsed for several days before rebounding sharply back to the upside. The short correction was mostly blamed on the fallout from the Chinese stock market crash which triggered panicked selling across all assets and dragged down every segment of the stock market. But panic selling can be a great buying opportunity for value shoppers.

Sometimes a perfect storm can take a stock way down below its fair value. An earnings miss combined with a macroeconomic crisis can amplify losses well beyond a reasonable range. However, if the long-term fundamentals hold strong, investors can pick up a great value buy at a discounted price.

A solid company in the wrong place at the wrong time

The Fresh Market (TFM) is a grocery store with 168 stores in 27 states known for its organic foods selection. The stock has suffered mightily this year – down roughly 50% year-to-date. The company's recent earnings miss coupled with the recent events in the global financial markets have contributed to the stock's weakness.

3 Thanksgiving Stocks That Deserve Your Attention

Hello traders and MarketClub members everywhere! Here we are, starting a shortened trading week before the big Thanksgiving holiday here in the US.

For most of us, Thanksgiving conjures up pictures of family and lots of food, sitting around a table sharing good times. And yes, perhaps eating too much at times. With that thought in mind, I decided to search for three healthy food stocks that would not add inches to your waistline or overpower you with processed food.

In the last several years, there has been a big movement into eating fresh and healthier food and knowing where the food is coming from. No where is this more prevalent than with the millennials and the aging baby boomer population here in the US.

It's hard to go into a supermarket or food store now and not see people actually reading the labels for perhaps the first time and not buying into the advertising myth for that particular product. I view this as a very positive sign, particularly for retailers who get that the consumer wants a better and healthier alternative to all the processed food that's out there.

So let's get started and look at the three stocks I'm going to be examining in today's video. The first stock I will be looking at is Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM), which is currently trading around $48 a share. The next stock is The Fresh Market Inc. (NASDAQ:TFM), which is trading around the $39 level. The last stock on my shopping list is Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. (NASDAQ:SFM), which closed last Friday around $32.

In today's short video, I'll be examining all three companies and showing you my projections for each of these three stocks. I will also be pinpointing a level that could make one of these stocks skyrocket.

As always, I welcome your comments and feedback below this post, so please feel free to share with me what you think of these three stocks or the market in general.

Every success with MarketClub,
