Pradeep, when considering earning surprise stocks, what do you consider a meaningful surprise that leads you to consider a buy? 5% 10% 25% 50% 100% etc? Thanks! mgold

Higher the better. But context of earnings surprise is important, is it first or second, is it likely to continue, was it priced in and so on.
