Earnings moves expected vs historical. What are the best predictors?

  1. Historical average earnings moves from the last 12 quarters.
  2. Historical projected earnings moves from the options straddle prices.
  3. Expected move this earnings based on options prices.

Using a proprietary method learned from trading earnings stocks since the mid 90s, ORATS extricates that part of the options premium associated with only the day affected by the earnings announcement. It would be easy if there were only ever one day left to expiration, but that is not the real world. Often there are many days to expiration and the trick is to predict what the distribution of earnings moves is, what the implied volatility will fall to, and what the premium is currently in the market. Armed with that knowledge, the market's predicted move for the stock can be uncovered.
