12/4 – 3:20 p.m. New York time

Today’s outcomes: I entered one position, GIII, and exited another, GWPH. Both are earnings plays using shares.

12/4 – 3;05 p.m. New York time

I’ve entered an earnings play using shares of GIII.

12/4 – 9:45 a.m. New York time

I shall analyze GIII today as a prospective earnings play using shares. I exited a shares position on GWPH for a profit and shall be updating the analysis shortly.

12/3 – 10 a.m. New York time

I have one prospect for action on Monday, an earnings plays using shares of GIII.

Four other symbols on my list have flaws and so at this point don’t qualify for trading. I shall continue to monitor them and shall analyze them further if they meet my riteria.

The four are ASNA and BMO, with no earnings surprise predicted, and FRAN and HDS, with negative surprises anticipated. BMO, FRAN and HDS are also non-trending, another disqualifying metric.
