Earnings Growth Charts

 Last week I had 4 stocks from the earnings list reporting, so I have those 4 graphs plus 4 others that didn;t get posted earlier this quarter. On the graphs, in the top panel the red line is quarterly EPS growth rate, black is quarterly revenue growth rate. In the middle, the red line is quarterly EPS, the green is quarterly revenue, black is price, and blue price relative to SPX. If the stock is reporting the end of a fiscal year, the large red bars are annual EPS. At the bottom the black bars are volume.

AFCE reported this week, and reported accelerating growth. EPS and revenue are marching in near lock step, and price is responding accordingly. It did drop on this report, and appears to be in the process of forming a base, but this is one to watch for the future, as the growth looks quite sustainable .

 DDS also reported this week, with a quarter of decelerating growth. Growth here has not been tha strong, but price has been in a monstrously strong up trend for 5 years. This is currently in a base, but I am not sure this has enough growth potential to send it much higher.

EVOL reported a negative quarter this quarter, but the earnings and revenue numbers have been distorted by a sale of a large part of the company. Price has recently gone ballistic (this is a linear chart, so it isn't as straight up as it looks here) for reasons unknown.

LL reported October 23, and this chart is updated through then. This has probably been the biggest winner I have picked since starting the earnings list, and is still a market leader. Since reporting, it formed a very short base, which it broke out of yesterday. EPS and revenue growth are quite high, and it is questionable just how sustainable it is, but so far really isn't showing signs of slowing down.

MKTX also reported October 23. This also formed a very short base after reporting, and also broke out yesterday. EPS, revenue, and price are all in very strong up trends, with this most recent quarter being the first sign that things may be slowing down here.

 MTSC reported this week. EPS growth and revenue growth are in a divergence, which could mean the data is wrong, so I will double check that. Price is following EPS, so that is what we should be focusing on. Despite what looks like a pretty strong chart, this isn't a market leader, mainly due to a severe lack of volume.

TESS has rather unimpressive growth credentials, but since the big breakout in early 2012, this has been a market leader. It has recently made a big move on rather low growth, so the market may be anticipating high growth resuming soon.  his also reported October 23, but hasn't done much since.

UACL reported October 24, and also has done nothing since. This draws almost no volume, and isn't going to go anywhere until it starts getting some, but the EPS and revenue numbers for this are improving, so we could start seeing some interest in this in the future. For now, there really isn't much to due here but wait.
