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 companies that humbled the prognosticators this past week.
We can start with Hewlett-Packard
HP's coming out on top isn't much of a surprise. The company has trounced expectations in every single quarter since Mark Hurd took over as CEO.
Another company that really knows how to deliver is FTD Group
Finally, we have NetEase
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.
