Why settle for ordinary quarterly reports?
Every week, I look at three companies that have beaten market expectations, since I believe that leaving Wall Street's pros with puzzled expressions usually means the companies have more in the tank than the analysts figured. 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 Expedia
The industry's snapshot will be a little clearer when momentum leader priceline.com
Finally, we have Green Mountain Coffee Roasters
The company is proving recession-resistant, and it may actually be thriving in hard times. After all, just because folks aren't hitting Starbucks
So keep watching the companies that surpass expectations. Over time, doing so 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.
