$TYME speculating on earnings is just like playing at a casino. It can go either way, you lose or you win. Trading stocks was never meant to be like that. Unfortunately the trend has changed. People like to take risk with their money instead of investing it and giving it time to grow. I for one always sell before earnings are out. Most of the time that has proven to be a good decision when earnings are bad and price drops. But I have missed on some rockets also. But taking a 50-50 chance it is not a wise financial decision.
