So why were investors so quick to jump ship when the numbers weren't up to snuff?

If you don't know what to make of Wall Street reactions to Goodrich Petroleum, that's OK because they don't really make sense. In the video below, find out why this is simply noise you should tune out and what you should focus on at Goodrich.
