I am hoping that some of you can help me with a problem. For the trading style I have, I do much better with stocks that are just prodding along without the influence of any breaking news. I watch earnings announcements, but I keep getting burnt by analysts making statements about projected earnings and changing their rating/ recommendation. I haven't been able to find a source that will tell me when these announcements will be made. Do the analysts give notice that they will be initiating coverage or making a revision to earnings estimates, or do they just make the announcements without warning? If they do give notice, where can I find this information? If they don't give notice, what is the best way to find out about their statements as quickly as possible? If it matters, I have a short list of stocks that I follow - these are the ones that I would be concerned with. Thanks for the help.
