8/17 – 3:30 p.m. New York time

I entered positions on AMAT and DE coinciding with earnings announcements, and exited a position on WMT.

I analyzed GPS but declined the trade.

8/17 – 9:55 a.m. New York time

I am adding GPS to my prospects list and shall post an analysis today. Its expectation of an earnings surprise has declined.

8/17 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

I have exited WMT for a profit.

8/16 – 9:30 p.m. New York time

I shall consider two earnings plays on Thursday: AMAT and DE.
