Why do shares drop on good earnings ?


Jayjay

Recommended Posts

I am following Bohoo and ther shares have been climbing what I want to know is why do the shares drop when the company has just posted double growth over the year profits beat the predicted forecast

Can any one explain this .is it people taking profit now ? You would think that they would go up not down

When the company raised its forecast during the year the shares rose but yet when the actual figures come out and are better than expected they drop

Very confusing .

I am new to this and any info would help

I have also seen this happen with other companies I watch

 

Thanks Jay

Consider the different reasons the share might be held, from the day trader simply holding a momentum move or the longer term investor holding for year on year growth.

With the monumental amout of information available including ongoing investment analysis provided by the broker research and other specialised research houses, there is more than enough current information about companies earnings and expected earnings.

When theses numbers are confirmed in line with a consensus of research there are no surprises and the shorter term trader investor would be looking to take profits and look for other opportunities. This is shown in the day to day movements.

For the longer term holder, the day to day movements are just noise and often disregarded.

The longer term holder is interested in the forward looking commentary from the compaies reporting, should this be positive generally the share price will recover quickly from the short term profit takers as the dip offers a buying opportunity. The longer term ( weekly) trend will remain in tact. However at times forward commentary from the company report can have an immediate negative effect on share prices and price trends can change. The first to sell may be the institutional end of the market as they will sell into strength to get the liquidity required for the volume to be liquidated.
Define where you fit in to this equation and the sell off on the company reporting may present an opportunity increase your position or take profits.

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
