Every week, I look at a few companies that lapped their profit targets. Leaving Wall Street's pros with quizzical looks on their faces can be a good thing. It usually means that the companies have more in the tank than analysts figured, and capital appreciation often follows. Here are a few companies that humbled the prognosticators this past week.

Heelys (NASDAQ:HLYS), the maker of kid-friendly shoes with snap-out wheels, which skated past Wall Street estimates. Heelys earned $0.30 a share, 50% better than the market's $0.20-per-share projection.

But the shares slipped -- like a set of Heelys on a freshly waxed hardwood floor -- as the company announced a secondary stock offering and talked down its near-term growth guidance.

M-I-C? See you later, slacker analysts. Last week, Disney (NYSE:DIS) once again trounced market expectations. The family-entertainment giant and Motley Fool Stock Advisor pick earned $0.44 a share in its fiscal second quarter, well ahead of the $0.38 per share that the market had been expecting. All four of Disney's business segments chipped in double-digit percentage gains in operating income. Disney has now blown away profit targets in all six quarters under CEO Bob Iger's reign.

Then we have Blue Nile (NASDAQ:NILE). The high-end jewelry retailer grew its earnings per share by 46% to $0.19 this past quarter. Widening margins helped the company easily lap the pros perched at the $0.15 mark, but that was just part of the story. Analysts also fell far short in predicting the company's net sales growth. That's par for the course for the Rule Breakers recommendation, which has clocked in above Wall Street's stock mavens in all but one quarter since going public.

Keep watching the companies that lap expectations. Over time, it will be a rewarding experience for investors as the market rewards the overachievers. That's the kind of surprise we look for in the Rule Breakers newsletter service. Want in? Check out a 30-day trial subscription.
