What I want to know is...what just happened? The only news I can see is that the earnings call is set for tomorrow...is this just a run-up to earnings?

Might mean the report is going to be very good tomorrow. I remember reading a couple years back that employees at Motorola used to check the newspaper for its stock price change the day before earnings were to be reported. They had an interest because Motorola's contributes to their retirement accounts were linked to its earnings. The writer went on to say if the change was + ,the earnings were better than expected and a - ,the earnings were less than expected.
