4 Winners This Earnings Season

Positive revenue and earnings surprises are great, but if management guidance
is weak and/or if analysts still revise their earnings estimates lower, a
stock can still be punished. The true winners from earnings season are those
who can deliver the coveted "Triple Play":

  oA positive earnings surprise
  oA positive revenue surprise, and
  oSignificant positive earnings estimate revisions

And as the well-documented "post-earnings announcement drift" shows, these
blow out quarters are often handsomely rewarded by the market for several
weeks after a company reports.

4 Triple Plays

So which companies have delivered the "Triple Play" this earnings season? I
ran a screen in Research Wizard, and here are 4 of the top companies from the
list:

Evercore Partners (NYSE:EVR)

EPS Surprise: +56%
Revenue Surprise: +36%
4 Week Change in 2013 Consensus: +11%

Evercore Partners is an independent investment banking advisory firm. It is a
Zacks Rank of 1 (Strong Buy).

Inter Parfums Inc. (Nasdaq:IPAR)

EPS Surprise: +14%
Revenue Surprise: +2%
4 Week Change in 2013 Consensus: +6%

Inter Parfums operates in the fragrance business and manufactures, markets and
distributes a wide array of fragrances and fragrance related products. It is a
Zacks Rank of 1 (Strong Buy)

G&K Services Inc. (Nasdaq:GK)

EPS Surprise: +13%
Revenue Surprise: +2%
4 Week Change in 2013 Consensus: +6%

G&K Services provides uniforms and facility services throughout North America.
It is a Zacks Rank of 2 (Buy).

Synaptics Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNA)

EPS Surprise: +46%
Revenue Surprise: +3%
4 Week Change in 2013 Consensus: +28%

Synaptics develops human interface solutions for many consumer electronics
companies. It is a Zacks Rank of 1 (Strong Buy)

The Bottom Line

This earnings season has been decent, but these four companies each reported
outstanding quarters and are well-positioned to run higher over the coming
weeks.
