Hi @Marcraffard, thanks for sharing the link on why Tesla stock fell after the earnings. Great article to read.




Thanks MongilG!

I was suprised that Tesla Stock fell after such a huge announcement. I took a long position, so I was surprised and losing money 😁

That's why I made some research to try to understand why it fell.

My StopLoss have not yet been reached 🤞

Hi @Marcraffard It is a good thing you did your research, it is one key tool for trading. With the research you have done, as a trader you will get a better understanding why the market is moving in a certain way, while at the same time you will be able to anticipate these moves when such announcements happen again in future.

All the best - MongiIG

Post-earnings trade setups: Salesforce and Gap

With Q2 earnings season slowing down, Salesforce and Gap provide us with potential trading opportunities.

 Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 August 2021. IG

This article looks at some of the big movers off the back of recent earnings announcements to try and find stocks that seem to provide a good trading opportunity.

Typically, earnings announcements and trading statements will drive a shift or enhancement of market sentiment.

While many see earnings as a significant risk when holding a stock, placing trades in the wake of such events allows for greater confidence that all market knowledge has been factored into current prices.


Tech giant, Salesforce enjoyed a strong second quarter (Q2) with the company providing a major EPS beat ($1.48 per share versus 92 cents expected).

Meanwhile, revenues grew 23% compared with Q2 2020. This looks to provide the basis for a continuation of the breakout seen last week.

The push through trendline and $251.19 resistance brings expectations of further upside, with a bullish view in play unless price breaks below $234.35.

Gap posted Q2 revenues and earnings that beat market estimates, although the success of the stock meant the share price saw little upside in response.

The weekly chart highlights the wider uptrend in play since the pandemic lows. While we are seeing further downside come into play this week, there is a strong chance we are looking at a retracement before we head higher once more.

With price currently respecting the 61.8% Fibonacci support level, bullish positions are favoured until price breaks below the 2021 lows of $19.09.

Q2 US earnings season review: top 5 takeaways

US Reporting Season has almost come to an end for the US stock market, with S&P500 companies posting their strongest EPS in over a decade.

Q2 US Reporting Season review: earnings boom as S&P500 remains around all-time highsSource: Bloomberg
 Kyle Rodda | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Tuesday 31 August 2021 

The market data that matters:

EPS Growth (YoY)

Revenue Growth (YoY)

% of positive surprises

Price Reaction (%)

Current P/E






What were the key takeaways from the reporting period?

Below we unpack the key lessons and learnings from the latest US earnings season.

EPS growth at its highest since 2009

Earnings per share growth smashed expectations for the quarter, with S&P500 companies posting their strongest growth in EPS in Q2 since Q4 2009, according to data compiles by Financial Data company FactSet. Earnings growth across the index for the quarter came-in at 86.5%, based on analysis by Bloomberg Intelligence, far exceeding the 65.9% tipped by analysts prior to the start of the reporting period. An above average number of companies also beat earnings estimates, with 86.8% of companies positing a positive surprise in Q2, well above the roughly 71% average over the past decade.

Cyclicals outperform the market

As expected, it was cyclical stocks that drove the strength in profit growth. Benefitting from the stimulus fuelled economic recovery of the first half of 2021, along with the base effects from the deep recession recorded in the corresponding quarter last year, sectors in the market tied to the so called reflation trade delivered huge year-over-year EPS growth. The industrials sector topped the market, delivering earnings growth of 407.3%m according to Bloomberg Intelligence, while consumer discretionary stocks posted 206.7% growth and financials posted 180.9% growth.


Cost pressures yet to erode margins

Rising costs, supply side disruptions and current and future inflation were major themes this earnings season. Echoing the evidence provided by recent macroeconomic data, the issues of higher costs and prices were a key talking point amongst the management of S&P500 companies, as the supply shock of the COVID-19 recession, along with widespread labour shortages identified widely as a key risk to future growth and earnings for companies. Fortunately for investors however, the effects of rising costs weren’t widely visible this reporting season, with companies on average maintaining high profit margins of 13.9% for the quarter, although analysts are tipping that figure to drop in coming quarters.

Read our guide to maximising trading success here.

Investors welcome the strong results

Overall, investors welcomed the historic results delivered by S&P500 companies this quarter. Earnings beats were rewarded by the market, with the average stock climbing 0.56% on the day of reported earnings, far exceeding the average positive surprise of recent quarters. Earnings for the next quarter were also upgraded by analysts from around 24% to 27% for Q3. Despite pockets of volatility during the reporting period, the S&P 500 has also responded positively to corporate results. The index is currently over 3% higher than where it was at the start of the reporting period.

S&P500’s uptrend remains intact as profits justify buying-the-dip

Q2 results has provided further impetus for the S&P500 to maintain its current uptrend, and push to record highs. Although price momentum has slowed somewhat, with pockets of volatility caused by concerns about Fed tapering and the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19 resulting in small pullbacks, the index remains in a clear uptrend. The buy-the-dip mentality remains, and market sentiment remains bullish as it continues to knock-off fresh record highs. The S&P500’s 50-day MA remains they level to watch. Buyers have used the level as an entry point to “buy-the-dip”, with a break of it in the future the possible portent of a deeper correction

    • Why would I want an arm full of toxic clone spike proteins when I've already had covid (as have over 40% of the UK adult population). ONS data shows 96% of UK adults have covid antibodies when only 55% were vaxxed therefore 40% at least had come into contact with covid though many would not have even noticed it. Covid spreads by aerosol so of course masks are useless and so just a sign of conformity. I stick to the science papers and never see the msm fake narrative.   Meanwhile new lab work finds evidence of vaccine ADE (but not brave enough to call it). Recipients of the Pfizer vaccine have 5 - 6 fold LOWER natural antibody count.  
    • Ok, I just hope that you are consequent with your own words and don't get the Covid vaccine or don't wear a mask when you are asked to.  I hope you are not like these folks: https://www.theguardian.com/media/2021/sep/15/fox-news-vaccines-testing-tucker-carlson I know... I know... the guardian... It is not right-win biased.
    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
