Every week, I take a 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.

Let's take a look at a few of the beaters that humbled the prognosticators this past week.

We'll start with World Wresting Entertainment (NYSE:WWE). The prolific home of talented grapplers and magnetic storylines pounded projections to the mat -- or, as Steven Mallas put it, "Mr. McMahon Beats Mr. Expectations." The company earned $0.15 a share from continuing operations during its fiscal second quarter. Villainous pros were only looking for $0.013 a share out of the company. New television deals and a pay-per-view price hike may have muddied up the year-over-year comparisons, but the end result is still the same: WWE pinned Wall Street down for the count.

Toro (NYSE:TTC) also mowed down projections. The giant in lawn-maintaining commercial and residential products (like mowers and irrigation systems) earned $0.10 a share during its seasonally soft fiscal fourth quarter. Analysts were banking on just $0.09 a share from Toro. They were surprised, but you shouldn't have been. The company has now bested analyst projections for 15 consecutive quarters.

Then we have Cutter & Buck (NASDAQ:CBUK). The athletic-wear retailer had a pretty hard shot to hit. Analysts were looking for quarterly profits to soar from $0.08 to $0.14 a share. What did the golf apparel specialist do? It certainly didn't land on the rough. The company produced bottom-line results of $0.23 a share. Strong catalog business and stocking up on popular product lines helped the company come in under par with what was anything but a subpar performance.

So 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.
