So, here's the thing! I know Technicals play a huge part while investing/trading, in fact most day traders are just looking at them, but right now, most of it is just whizzing past my head at lightning speed. Now Fundamentals... that I get! The cash position of a company, its debt, the operating margin, net income..

What I want to do is be able to use both information together, decide whether to go long or short... hence, Fundnichals!

We all know we get the technical information on most financial sites, and updates are given through press releases. But before I go ahead and take the plunge, I want to get more color on segments, because they also play a role.

The question is how can I get operational numbers quicker, so I can glance at the market sentiment, and go for the kill...

So far, I've found transcripts are the way, but either they're either expensive or I get them when the game is practically ending. Hence, I'm out looking for sources where I can access a transcript fast, or even better a summary that would help me get an advantage over the rest... especially those institutional investors!

Regardless, I believe Fundnichals is the way to go!

Access to Blackberry's Live transcript!

I was fortunate to find access to the live BBRY transcript... where... good question :)
Here are some snippets of it... It was pretty cool to be able to get the feed from the horse's mouth (so to speak)!

Accenture took a big hit!

Hmm.... although I got some mixed results from the Accenture (ACN) conference call, the stock tumbled. Here's my analysis... looks like I missed out on some critical bits there... It seemed to have done better in some areas, but look at their EPS figure this quarter... scary!

Monsanto's Impact

To get you up to speed with the posts I had made earlier, I'll post my analysis here.

This was my analysis done on Monsanto Co. (MON). The stock had initially taken a hit once the press release was out, but once the earnings conference call took place, it recovered.

This was my analysis. What do you think? How much do we rely on the press release or the market sentiment and let that influence on buying/selling a stock? Would love to hear your views...
