Twitter Shares Have Historically Dropped 9% The Day After Earnings

Twitter Shares Have Historically Dropped 9% The Day After Earnings - Twitter NYSE:TWTR

Shares of Twitter Inc TWTR 1.13% tend to tumble following earnings reports. As noted by StockTwits user robertlesnicki, after the last four reports the stock lost 16.28 percent, 4.55 percent, 1.5 percent and 14.52 percent, respectively.

Looking even further back, we found that the stock slipped about 9 percent after the FQ1’15 call, and following the FQ3’14, FQ1’14 and FQ4’13 reports. On the day after each one of these call, shares of Twitter lost 9 percent, 8.5 percent and 8.5 percent.

While it's too early to say, it looks like a trend could be forming around Twitter earnings. Is it a good time to bet against the social media giant?

On the other hand, it would be prudent to consider the opposite option: contrarians might be salivating over the prospect of a favorable reaction on the heels of meager expectations.

Right now, it’s a wait-and-see situation.
