Don't settle for ordinary quarterly reports.
I take a look at three companies that beat market expectations every week, since I believe that it's the biggest factor in a stock making money. Leaving Wall Street's pros with stunned expressions can be a good thing -- it usually means that the companies have more in the tank than analysts figured. Capital appreciation typically follows.
Let's take a look at a few companies that humbled the pros over the past few trading days.
We can start with American Capital
The business-development company may have lost a few fans when it suspended its dividend last year, but it's doing more than a few things right these days. American Capital generated $0.67 a share in net operating income, well ahead of both the $0.19 a share it posted a year earlier and the $0.20 a share that Wall Street was banking on this time around.
Finally we have Sky-mobi
Moving in the right direction
It's important to keep watching the companies that surpass expectations. Over time, it will be a lucrative experience for investors as the market rewards the overachievers. That's the kind of surprise that we look for in the Rule Breakers newsletter service. Want in? Check out a 30-day trial subscription.

Either way, come back next week to learn about more stocks that blew the market away in the coming days.
