Every week, I take a look at a few companies that topped 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.
Let's take a look at a few companies that humbled the prognosticators over the past few trading days.
We can start with Netflix
Netflix has now topped Wall Street's projections in 14 of the past 16 quarters, an amazing record when you consider that Netflix has had to battle stubborn companies like Blockbuster
XM Satellite Radio
Finally, we have Janus Capital Group
So, keep watching the companies that top 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 free trial subscription.
