If I live to be a 100, I'll never understand why stocks move one direction or the other after earnings and forecasts.

Liquidity Services (LQDT) beat estimates rather handily, yet guided to below expectations on revenue for the first quarter, and the stock is up 13% today.

Power One beats estimates rather handily, yet guided to below expectaions on revenue (still an 80% climb YoY), and the stock gets crushed after hours.

I'll need to read the release and the conference call transcript before commenting further.

Cheers,
Jim
