Earning season offers some of the best opportunities for profitable trading. PEAD or post earnings announcement drift is a well studied and proven market anomaly. Stocks which have significant earnings surprise or acceleration, breakout post earnings and rally for next 3-6 months as market reacts to this new earnings power. Sometimes these rallies last years.
Here is an example of a earnings breakout from last earnings season:
OPEN: Opentables Inc.OPEN had a big earnings surprise and it had a high volume breakout on earnings day, since then stock has been going up.
So if you are looking for a profitable strategy to trade, you might be interested in putting together a working plan for next earning season.
